MDS Blog Hop - Sketch Challenge

Yikes!  I'm late posting today, but I finished the challenge and it was so much fun!  Here's the sketch that Heather picked out for us:

Isn't that adorable?  LOVE it!  I was pretty stumped on how to make the large arrow, so I thought I should see how the other blog hoppers did theirs.  I pulled up Jeanna's blog and (how cute is her page?!) was pretty excited to learn that she made her's using the Pennant Punch.  Duh!  Such a great idea.  So...I cheated and then I copied and I think it turned out rather well :)  Although I think you should know that it's a complete coincidence that we both scrapped pictures of our boys and their bikes!

This page is probably a little busier than the way I normally design, but it was fun.  I added the blue circle to cover the part of the Pennant Punch that was showing because it's pretty hard to get patterned paper to line up just right.  After that I figured I might as well continue with the circles - wouldn't want that little guy to left alone there in the corner ;)

My cute little guy saw these pictures and is now begging to go outside and paint again, so I don't have time to post the supplies.  However, I will tell you that I used the Day in the Life kit and the frogs are from the Hoppy Memories kit.  I hope we've inspired you today!
