PP190 Spring Break Layout

There's a little story behind this layout. I found the sketch on Pinterest about a week after I created a similar layout. It was easy to decide what papers to use. Well, I threw the basic bones of this layout together over a month ago and then I got side-tracked with cards. This afternoon, while the kids were in school, I decided to see what photos might work well with the papers I used. 

Funny, but the most recent pic's I took worked the best. So I decided to pull out some stamp sets and do a little fussy cutting as I got caught up on Property Brothers. LOL
Paper: Lollydoodle, Desert Sand CS, Hollyhock CS, Sunset CS, White Daisy CS (CTMH)
Stamps: Ticket to Ride (retired), Bohemian Alphabet (retired), Charming Chevrons (CTMH)
Inks: Sunset, Pear, Hollyhock (CTMH)
Tools: 1 1/4" Circle Punch, Paper-Piercer, Micro-Tip Scissors (CTMH)
Other: White Embroidery Floss, Pink Glitter Gems (CTMH)

I would like to enter this into the following challenges:
1) The Paper Players #190 Challenge
2) Use Your Stuff #130 Challenge

I used three groups of 3 chevrons, 3 circles, and a cluster of 3 glitter gems, plus 3 photos. I think that applies. :) 

Spring inspired us to go to the bounce house for an afternoon of bouncy fun. After following them back and forth several times, I decided I would just sit on the floor against the wall and wait for the kids to rid themselves of some restless energy. It worked well. Afterwards, we ended up grocery shopping and I was complimented twice on how well-behaved and quiet my kids were. Teehee. If they only knew!
