Practical Scrappers One Hour Layout Challenge

I have been furiously working on this for the past hour for PS One Hour Layout Challenge!  Here's the sketch and my entry:



I only knew that we needed the pictures and what sizes they should be.  I was still fussing at five minutes to the hour to figure out what pictures I wanted to scrap.  I came across these pictures of Shane when he was little (where does the time go?) and I had to put them to paper.  By then, I had already lost 3 minutes!!  Well, I grabbed some no-fail Echo Park and delved into this Little Boy kit that I purchased a couple months ago.  I so love matching papers and elements!  I cut the "button" background mat for starters.  When I added the border stickers, I curled them up a bit for dimension and added buttons.  There I was counting buttons - and I had just enough of the same size and color that I wanted.  I diecut some leaves from my Slice Think Pink card for further embellishment.

I did this quickly, but I can say that I will not change a thing.  Well, why would I when the focal point is that million dollar smile?  I can tell you that at 21, he still has that million dollar smile!

So fun to do a one-hour challenge!  I learned what I waste time on and what I could do more quickly without diddling so much.  And I am so grateful for this Echo Park Little Boy kit.  The most difficult thing was picking out which papers I would use.  They are all so cute!!

I used papers from that line too, but got a totally different look! Great page! I would never have attempted cutting my own diecuts in that timeframe!
