Gramma's lil' Helper

This is a layout I have done for a challenge group I am in.  It is all part of the "get your fanny back to scrapping" vow I took for 2012.  This is one of my youngest dd's lads.  I cannot believe he will be ten years old and I am scrapping toddler things!  I am so far behind but each layout catches me up some.  lol  Anyway, the sketch is from Sketch Savvy.  The papers are from a the "Baby Boy" stack from DCWV.  I cut the letters and border strips all out with my sidekick and sizzix dies.  I used my CE and the Cricut Class room to cut the pennants out as well as the frames.  I have never used pp to make frames and stuff but think they look okay.  I shaded some white crochet thread with blue and green copics to hang the pennants.  Added a little ink here and there and called it done.  Not sure it is done tho as I think it needs a bit more to really finish it off.  Thanks for stopping by.  God bless each of you!

This is a first for me.....I will enter this layout in some challenges.  I have entered my cards in challenges for a couple years now, but never a layout.  So here is the challenges I am entering.

Anything Goes- altered items  not sure if the crochet be considered as altered where I colored it.

Lasting Memories- ribbon.

 2 Sisters Challenge- stitching

Fantabulous Cricut- use fabric, lace or other trim.  I used the polka dot ribbon

Bella Blvd Studio-use pattern papers as an frames

Allsorts-anything goes
