Fly Boy

These are pics of my son when he was two years old. We took them at home ... well my mom did. She is such a great photographer. She has so much potential. If any of you live in Colorado and would like to contact her please let me know. Anyway. This was created in mind for three challenges from and I may put it in the doodle one for Jan as well.
Challenge 1:
Color challenge Jan - Blue Orange and white
Challenge 2:
D – Dots, polka-dots. Got them actually on two PP.
E – Envelope, some way some how you must put an envelope on the layout. Flying by envelope... hehe
F – Fiskars scissors or some type of decorative scissors or edger. Check! Done! I used the Fiskars edger with the rope design.
Challenge 3:
Doodle challenge - Jan - this requires you to utilize your markers and pen on your layout in more then just journaling. You need to add a design element to it with ink.

Details of Fly Boy:
The airplanes are from two places. the orange one is a chip board element covered in Card stock. It is from the "Obscure" [un}dressed chipboard pack from Basicgrey. This I found at Big Lots for 2$. I don't know if you will be able to find it. I know they are still at my store though. The navy blue one in the center is printed off of Microsoft clip art and cut out right along he edge and I added stickles to the wings and tail. The lettering is also just a font I have in the Microsoft word Program. I printed it in a navy blue on the light orange card stock and cut it out with a small 1/8" boarder.

Every new layout I do I try to use a new type of embellishment or a new technique. This layout the new item was stickles... yes I have been scraping in the dark ages and now it is illuminated by glitter... sparkling in my eyes on almost every page since this one.

Update: Doodle challenge 1st place
3rd place ABC Challenge {DEF Round}
Made top 7/66 Color challenge tied for 3 place

I hope you enjoyed looking. Thanks!
