Colten's New Wheels ~ Sketches In Thyme



Hi everyone!!  It's Thursday and that means it's time for another wonderful sketch challenge over at Sketches In Thyme.  This weeks sketch is from wittyliving and I must say was a little intimidating at first...  Here's the sketch...
But after I chose my photos of little GS Colten, I turned the sketch and just let my imagination work with the photos...  I also did the challenge over at Inspire Me, which, along with using mostly Webster's Pages, we were to use Webster's Trim and do some fussy cutting and layering...  Well, with a little boy layout, that was HARD!!  I can see using WP for little girls, but BOYS!!!  Well, I did the best I could.  It doesn't have a lot of layers like I usually have, but I think I accomplished what I was going for!!  Here are a few close ups....

Everything on this layout is from Webster's Pages except the SU Old Olive CS, buttons, twine and letters.  Here you can see some of my fussy cutting.   All of the flowers are cut from Wonderfall ~ Count Your Blessings.

More flowers, and the little brown borders, butterfly, journaling block, and the ruler are all stickers from WP.  You can also see the trim/ribbon which I gathered,  and one of the buttons tied with twine.. 

Close up of more of my fussy cutting, the little bird sticker and part of the tree sticker, also from WP..

Here are a few challenges this layout will qualify for..
