No Offense Layout

This layout is so totally different from my usual style! I am not a one-photo, everything but the kitchen sink kind of scrapper, but I had a story to tell so I tried something a little out of my comfort zone. Heart 2 Heart's  April scrapbooking challenge is to "Laugh It Up" by scrapbooking one of our funniest memories. I decided to memorialize my younger son's habit of saying "No offense, but . . . " and then proceeding to say the rudest things, thinking it was okay as long as he started with "no offense!" Fortunately, he's grown out of it, but it was rather hilarious in a horrible way while it lasted.

All shapes were originally cut using one of my CTMH Cricut cartridges, but since I found them in my leftovers box, I don't know which piece came from which cartridge.
Pattern: Sketch 'n Scrap "Inspired By" #4

I chose the top row across, but when I pulled out my long-neglected chalks, I couldn't find any applicators, so I got creative and applied blue chalk to the clock and a grey lining to the cloud using my finger. Not the effect I was hoping for, but it has inspired me to go shopping tomorrow for chalk applicators!
