100% Pure Country ~ Stuck On U Sketches

Hi Everyone!!  It's Friday and that means it's time for another sketch reveal over at Stuck On U Sketches..  And this awesome sketch was designed by our own Leah and here it is!! 

And so for my take on it I had to use these cute photos of Grandson Colten.  He had his picture taken awhile back at daycare and they just came in and I couldn't wait to scrap them...  He is such a cutie in his hat that's 2 sizes too big for him!!  lol

Here are a few close ups

This is a recycled raffia bow from a gift package.. I added a couple of the Tim Holtz idea-ology Sprocket Gears and used a brad for the center.

Another Tim Holtz idea-ology Sprocket Gear, Thickers, a portion of the corrugated cardboard, and part of the Cricut title cut with Country Life Cartridge.

This layout will also qualify for the following challenge(s)..

I love how you made the sketch work for "country" photos. It looks like it was made for your photos! Love how you used the gears to give it a rough and tough boy feel. Great page.

Thanks for creating a scrap book page for For Fun Challenges. Hope to see you next Wednesday for the new challenge.
