Cool Kid

This week's challenge on the Cosmo Cricket blog was to face your fears...do something that intimidates you. Well, the part of scrapbooking that intimidates me is the beginning. I have a hard time coming up with a sketch or deciding where to start. That is why I like when the sketch is given to me-I just pull out the supplies I want and "paint by number". So, for this challenge, I didn't go find a sketch and just tried to go with the flow. I changed this layout in my head a few times and then again as I was putting it together. I added and removed stickers a few times and finally decided it was done.

This page is about my son and how he is growing up and finding his own style. He likes his hair in a certain hairstyle and is starting to enjoy clothes shopping. He enjoys looking nice and I am impressed with his style!

This is an 8x8 layout. The picture makes the page look warped, but I couldn't get a picture head on because I kept getting a glare on the photo. Any tips? The solid cardstock is by Papertrey Ink. All other products (patterned paper, stickers, rub ons, chipboard letters and pieces) are Cosmo Cricket.
