Design Dollies & JUGS

This photo was taken 5 and a half years ago, and I always liked it, but it never got scrapped. It shows my little guy snuggled up with a blanket in the baby car seat we'd bought in preparation for the impending arrival of his first sibling. He was always so active and intense (still is!) that we could never get a reprieve, and so we finally let him watch TV, but even that didn't keep his interest for long. The only show that he would sit longer than a half hour for was Winnie the Pooh. He just loved it, especially the part with the bees! I'd kind of forgotten this story until the Design Dollies elements challenge came out this week, asking for a project featuring a favourite cartoon character. I wracked my brain until I came up with this, and I just so happened to have stickers to match the theme! The challenge at JUGS this week is a colour challenge (don't I just love a good colour challenge!) - navy blue, orange, green and cream, and these just happen to nicely match my stickers and this gorgeous background paper from the CTMH You Rock paper pack. (Check out the thingies in my sidebar to click over to Design Dollies and JUGS.) And there you have it, layout #46 done!

Supplies (all CTMH): patterned paper from You Rock and Backcountry Level 2 paper packs, Colonial White cardstock, Intrinsic Backgrounds My Acrylix stamp set, Exclusive Inks stamp pad in Outdoor Denim, Clear Detail embossing powder

Other: Sakura white pen, Creative Memories stickers, Versamark ink
