My Mind's Eye Challenge #7

Today I was able to combine 2 fun things. Fun thing #1: my boys got a dinosaur for Christmas from my parents. They love it. They can ride on it, feed it, it makes all sorts of noises, and it even plays dinosaur music. I just knew I needed to scrap pictures of my boys playing with Kota (the triceratops). I also knew I had to use My Mind's Eye Abby Road Stomp Collection to scrap it. Fun thing # 2: MME was kind enough to post a sketch challenge on their blog that was just perfect for my dino layout. First, here's the sketch:
Want to see my take on the sketch? It's such a great subject that I just had to turn it into a 2 page spread:
Here are a some close ups of the pages, and after that I'll talk you through a few of the details:Whew, that was a lot of photos, thanks for sticking with me! All of the paper, brads, chipboard stickers, and the journaling tag are from My Mind's Eye Abbey Road Stomp Collection. Sometimes I'm jealous of people who have little girls and get to use all those great flowers and rhinestone accents, but this line gave me so many choices, I wasn't jealous once! It's such a great line that I had almost no need for any of my other scrapping supplies. I did use my Silhouette to cut the title. The font I used is called "Rock It" and I downloaded it free from Dafont.com. If you have a Silhouette, or like to do computer journaling, Dafont is a great resource. They have thousands of fonts that you can download for free. Finally, if you'd like to play along with MME's Challenge #7, you have until Thursday. You can find all of the details here at MME's blog.
