My Mind's Eye Challenge #10

I apologize for taking so long between posts. Life, you know? I've been paper crafting like crazy, although I haven't been able to post most of those creations, but today I have a page I did with My Mind's Eye's most recent sketch challenge. I play along with a few on-line challenges, but I've got to say the sketches that the Design Team over at MME comes up with are my favorite! The twist to this challenge is that you needed to use the song Dream Big Ryan Shupe & The RubberBand some way in the page. Here's the sketch:
Here's my layout:I've always loved these photos of Elias sleeping, and thought this was the perfect layout/theme challenge for them. The paper is all by My Mind's Eye Penny Lane Free Bird, as is the journaling tag. The brads are from MME's Lush line. The punched borders were done with 2 of my favorite Fiskars Border Punches; Apron Lace and Upper Crest. The title was done with American Craft Thickers.
I loved the colors of this page and the papers from Free Bird so much that I just had to make a companion page:
The "Godparents" tag was created on my Silhouette.
If you want to play along with the challenge too, you can find all of the details here.
Thanks for stopping by, I promise to be back with more paper fun soon!
