** Echo Park Scoot collection**

Where does the time go?  Seriously....this boy is now more than 2 times older than these photos.  Even he said, "I'm so little...and cute!"  I guess this is why we do this thing called memory keeping...because so much goes by in the mere blink of an eye.

I created this layout using Inspired Blueprints sketch #85.  This time I stayed very true to the sketch.  I think the only thing I changed was moving the larger piece of patterned paper closer to the right edge so that I could see more of it.  I filled a lot of space with my long title, but the song just kept going through my head....I couldn't cut it short!

Here are some close-ups:

Nearly everything I used came from one collection kit.  The tiny alpha stickers are from Cosmo Cricket.  The other exceptions were the baker's twine, the Silhouette cut for the word things, a brad and one shaped label punch behind the embellishments in the upper right.  I machine stitched around all the patterned paper before adhering it to my layout.  And that about does it!

Another great take on the Inspired Blueprints sketch! These papers are so much fun--I've enjoyed seeing your new layouts each week for these two challenges! :)
