Creative Cuts and More Film Strip..; Practical Scrappers Challenge Me Tuesday - Cork Challenge

Hi everyone!!!  I swear I'm loosing my mind! lol  I know I wrote this late last night, but where it posted, I don't have a clue!!
Anyway.. This is a layout I did using a Filmstrip - Large Die Cut from Creative Cuts & More...  They have so many die cuts in so many different colors and textures...  I love using them on my layouts whenever I can.. and you will too..
I also did this for the Practical Scrappers Challenge Me Tuesday "Cork" challenge..  I didn't have any cork in my scrap room, so I had to get a little creative...  I had some old coasters so I peeled the cork off, stuck it to a piece of cardstock and then ran it through the Big Shot using the Sizzix Tim Holtz Flourishes Die...  Love how it turned out... Also found some Cork Disks at my local grocery store and used those under my letters....
Now about my layout.... This is my little GS Zach taken in May...   He's wearing a bib because he is cutting teeth and drools all the time!!  You can actually see him drooling in the large photo!   This was the first time he got to spend the day with Grandma by himself... and we had a blast... He is such a sweet little guy..  We're going to have to do it again soon!!!
Here are a few close ups...
