Sleep Tight - a Scrap the Boys challenge

Hey friends!

I'm here today with a layout I created with a fun challenge from Scrap the Boys. What a great blog, and I can't believe I have not participated before.

This layout was based upon a fun sketch from Laura Whitaker:

I had these three sweet photos of my boy with his 4th birthday gift of a big boy bed, and they were perfect!

I used these fun eyelashes from the new Ink Road Stamps Iconic collection instead of E's in the title! I love they look like asleep eyes, and let me tell you - this boy has lashes for day! So unfair lol.

These transparent ephemera pieces from Shimelle were perfect for a layout about bedtime! It is hard to photograph a bit - it says "to the Moon & Back."

I also got these great WRMK dies at Tuesday Morning that were perfect with my star theme!

I also picked up this dot textured Kraft and LOVE it! 

I sewed a circle around my star background staying true to the sketch and I love how that turned out as well.

Only a litte journaling was necessary to tell this story, and accenting with acrylic stars brought the theme together again.

Aww that sweet sleepy baby face is already so much bigger!

I loved working with the Scrap the Boys challenge. I'll definitely be coming back again.
