Thursday Layout

Hey y'all! It's a rainy, grey Thursday here. What better time to scrap?! I wish I could spend the day scrappin' away, but I have a million & one things on my to do list! We leave for the Bahamas tomorrow & once again, I am down to the wire trying to get it all done!
But yesterday I did manage to kick out this layout. To get started, I used the current sketch from Life.Paper.Scrapbook

and their mood board

Here is my layout

I was inspired by the colors in the mood board and the distressed elements.
I  used my punch to create the squares on the background. I cut out 4 2" squares, distressed them & then pieced them together to create a larger square. I did the same on the other side. All papers here are from my scraps drawer. I love, love, love the feeling of using up those scraps! Especially since I never throw anything away!
The gingham paper is from Lily Bee. Most of my scrap papers are from Crate Paper.

I used my Fiskars star punch to make the larger stars & the white, mistable ones are from Studio Calico, as are the blue stickers. 
The "four" banner is cut from a journaling sheet of paper from Crate.
These pics are from Ty's 4th birthday. He loved Batman at the time. He has grown leaps & bounds since then!!
Thanks for stopping by. It means a lot!!
