You Make My Heart Flip

So, even though my team is out of the World Cup, I'm still playing along with the World Cup Challenges at The Studio!  The challenge for this week is to find inspiration in the World Cup mascot, Zakumi:

I borrowed the colors and the polka dots to create this layout about my son:

We took the picture at our local soccer fields, but other than that, this has nothing to do with soccer :).  I decided to make this layout about how my oldest son, Colten, makes my heart flip.  He drives me crazy, but at the same time I LOVE THIS KID.

I drew my title, painted it with Twinling H2O's (watercolors infused with mica - they sparkle!), and then fussy cut each letter.  I also made the matching hearts.  Can you believe there are no flowers?  I just felt "finished" after spending so much time on the title, and I thought my journaling and the photo were too important to keep embellishing.  ...and then I added the yellow pearls.  But then I stopped :).

I hope you are having fun playing along!  There's only one more World Cup Challenge, so get in the game!  Oooh, and I almost forgot to mention - there just may be a giveaway post later today ;).

Happy scrapping! Tessa
