Peachy Keen Challenge 13-2: Sketch

Hi!  Today I am posting my entry into the Peachy Keen Challenge.  I have created a single page layout for my boys.  A single page layout is a rarity in this household.  With six kids that generally do everything together, I don't get many opportunities to do single pages.
The base sheet is a denim print.  I trimmed burlap to make the larger matting and the strip on the bottom.  I really like the way this turned out.  I then cut a white sheet to make my smaller mat.  I then
used several stamps, from the boy themed stamps by My Pink Stamper, to create my background stamping.  I love it.  My boys helped me pick out the stamps that were used.  The sentiment on the oval was from TPC Studio and this was placed over a cut from Elegant Edges Cricut cartridge.  My boys thought that it needed a truck to be masculine, so I added a truck that was stamped and embossed (truck stamp in one of the Tim Holtz sets I have).  Below is a close up of the background stamped matting and the sentiment.
Well, I hope your enjoyed my post.  Thanks for stopping by.
