happiness is...

I had a wonky whale of a time getting good pictures of my layout today. Or I'm getting super picky. Or my eyeballs are failing.

I do like the layout. Once again, Artful Delight offers up a sketch that understands me and my style. Anytime I want to participate in a challenge, Artful Delight is the first place I visit.

Of course, I took the clean and simple sketch and totally junked it up- Alissa style.

My sister Vivian took this awesome photo of me and my little boy last summer.
Everything except the letter stickers came from my Counterfeit Kit for March. The papers are from Ad Lib by BoBunny. The polaroid journaling spot was cut from paper by American Crafts. The doodled box with a heart in it is a rub on by Fancy Pants.

The banner sticker is from Sassafras. I used a Micron pen to scatter my journaling on the layout.

"so sweet" is a stamp from Fine and Dandy by My Mind's Eye. The brad on the right is from Ad Lib by BoBunny.

Did you notice my random pen bordering? What do you think of it?

CHALLENGES:
Artful Delight- March Sketch Challenge
Counterfeit Kit- March- Vera Bradley Challenge
About a Boy- Hoarders

Thanks for stopping by!
