Awesome (Zachary)

This is my brother's son Zachary in the summer of 2009
I've had this picture already printed in 8x10 for more than a year now and the perfect sketch finally came along! I knew the instant I saw this week's sketch at Sketchy Thursdays that I wanted to reverse it and that I wanted to use this photo! (It's scary the things that I remember that I have, and what goes on in my head with them!)

Patterned paper: Fancy Pants "Rusted Sun";
Ribbon: BoBunny "Annasophia";
Letters and blue dots: Cloud 9 Design "Rain dots";
Sun and Flip Flop Icons: Microsoft Word Clip Art;
Surfboard Icon: Unknown patterned paper from stash;
Distress Ink: Tim Holtz

Here is the sketch (I had to flip flop it (ha!) to accommodate my photo):

Angled close up to show dimension of pop-dotted icons and epoxy letters:

Thanks for looking! I appreciate your comments!
