MCT Scrapping the Little Things

It's Scrapping the Little Things with My Creative Time!  Recently one of my friends posted some pics of her son in the ER on Facebook just after a skateboarding accident.  He's fine, just needed some stitches, but it made me think of a biking accident my son had when he was around the same age, and his injuries were in the same spots.  I never had scrapped that story, so I pulled out those pics and got to work!


The patterned papers I used on this layout are from a Close to My Heart collection called Typeset.  I used the Uppercase Fun Dies and Lowercase Fun Dies to make my title and the Stitched Circle Tab Die with a Circle Tab Die Sentiment to make the little element sticking off of the top picture.


The "All Boy" sentiment is from the Life is Good stamp set.  I thought it went well with one of the Stitched Restroom Peeps, and a few of the Stitched Chevy Dies worked well as arrows!


To continue my title, I added an ampersand made with one of the Social Media Dies and spelled out "the aftermath" with stamps from Alpha Pack.  I used one of the Tag Die Layers for my journaling.  To give a visual triangle on the layout, I added some yellow elements with circles.  That's where the view master came in to play, made with the What a View die.


Lastly, I added a bike made dies from Way to Go and paired it with a funny sentiment from that same set, stamped on a little "hill" I made with the Bunch of Fun Circle Dies.

There were a lot of MCT sets used. What a fun layout...I like the bike on the little hill and & the aftermath. Not too funny at the time but glad there was nothing permanent from the accident. I like the touch of yellow and the titles always look awesome with the letter dies. Great layout.
