Bitten By The Bug 2 Monday Challenge!

Good Morning everyone and what a lovely Monday! Monday's always bring our weekly challenges over at BBTB2 and this week the Sensational Shelly picked the Boy Fishing from the A Child's Year cartridge. Now remember if you don't have A Child's Year cart you can use any cart with a fishing theme.  
Well I did a one page layout and I actually added a picture of McCade on here! Shocker, I know, but I'm going to try and add pictures on more of my layouts, lol! Well I used DCWV papers, and inked all the edges with Distress Ink (Vintage Photo) and added some faux stitching. Did some embossing with my cuttlebug folders. I used the EK Success punch for the scallop w/circles punch and added some ribbon from Michael's. The boy fishing is cut at 7" and I added the ball cap onto him, (cut at 1 3/8", it is an extra on the cart, along with the grass tuffs which I altered a bit.) The little hanging fishes are cut at 3" and embossed and tied together for the "catch of the day".   
I also added a hidden journaling spot under the Lazy Days saying which is from the Just Because Cartridge. I took two ovals and welded them together (cut at 4 3/8")  for my journaling and popped/layered the saying, Lazy Days, a couple of times (cut at 7"). And then I HAD to add a tiny bit of "Bling", LOL! 
Hope you like it and make sure you enter the challenge over at BBTB2, you just might win our winners blinkie to add to your blog, along with bragging rights, of course! Thanks for your wonderful comments, you know I love all the nice things you all say and I really do appreciate all your kind words, Thanks to all of you. I hope you have a wonderful week!

((Hugs)) and Take Care,
Theresa

Super great LO. Especially with the picture on it. I'm driving myself crazy trying to find the photos I had in my hand to use two weeks ago. I love the hidden journaling element you used. I haven't done that in a long time and will have to remember it for another LO.
