Layout - Attitude Already

This has got to be one of my quickest layouts ever. Completed start to finish during Chloes nap today.
I've currently been working on three other layouts that I just can't seem to perfect/am waiting for supplies to arrive so it felt extra good to actually finish this one.

The idea for this layout came this morning when I looked through my blogger feed and saw the July challenge from WOW chipboard, a colour challenge:

The colours instantly reminded me of this photo from just 3 days ago, I was trying to snap a picture of Jayce smiling put he pulled this face instead, the boy already has attitude.
I was also instantly reminded of this scraping paper, the colours match perfectly. 

You may think that the check background idea came from the fact he is laying on a checked blanket but that was actually an after thought. It really was because I wanted to use the cartoon style squares with speech bubbles that are behind the picture and the star paper however they were the same piece of paper and I only had one. Bugger. Solution: cut it up into squares and spread them out so you will never know.

The layout of the page is designed around a sketch from Purple Pumpkin. I've rotated it 90 degrees to accommodate the photo.

Hopefully I'll finish the other three soon... fingers crossed...
