The Boy Who Could Sleep Anywhere Layout

I love these photos of my little guy sound asleep in his basket of stuffed animals, and was looking for a creative way to scrapbook them. I chose a Nuts About Sketches sketch, and decided to use a challenge from the Child's Play blog: be inspired by the children's book, Goodnight Moon. The cover of the book shows a star-filled window and some hideous orange and green striped curtains. CTMH has never come up with a paper pack that could do those curtains justice, but I found some striped paper that at least has green and orange in it, so I started with that, and then added some starry paper from the Stardust kit. I had a lot of fun making the title like a children's book title, and then I had the idea of writing "reviews" for it. Hope you enjoy them! (Click on the picture for an enlarged view if you want to read them without straining your eyes.) And finally, since I used only scraps on this layout, I want to enter it in the Heart 2 Heart scraps challenge.

Cheryl you always come up with fantastic ideas for your pages! The reviews are such a fun touch. I wouldn't have thought to put this paper together either, another great page!
