Dream Big!

Hello scrappy friends!
Today I am sharing a page I created combining few challenges. I used a Stuck?! sketch along with the book inspired challenge at Scrap Our Stash. I was inspired by the picture of the dad and kids and decided to use a photo of Sierra and her dad at her graduation a few weeks ago.
I used Dear Lizzy Happy Place for this layout:

I started by cutting a few cut files from The Cut Shoppe: Crop Circles, This and That and Funky Florals. I colored these cut files using watercolors and Gelatos for my pops of yellow. I created my background using the packaging technique and some watercolors.

The word "Dream" is from Heidi Swapp and I colored that with the watercolors as well. I added some October Afternoon mini alphas to complete my title.

I added patterned papers, washi tape and stitching. I fussy cut the bubbles and date frame from a few patterned papers.

I love cutting the cut files on white cardstock and adding paint. It gives the layout lots of dimension!

Here are a few more close ups:
I popped the diecut sun up on pop dots.

I added a few more pop dots under the bubbles and "It's a beautiful day to start" diecut.

Here is the sketch:

and the book cover:

I am so happy with how this layout turned out! 

Thanks for stopping by and have a wonderful day!
