Scoot! (Jacob @ 12 months)

Jakey loves to push things, ride on things, and to be outside! 
I found this little scooter at a yard sale for just five bucks - score!
I saw this awesome sketch at Get Picky and had to play along!

My layout:
All of the paper and elements are from the Crate Paper "Zoom" line. The base paper was a little loud so I lightly brushed it with parchment colored acrylic paint by Folk Art. Of course I had to use lots of Tim Holtz distress inks in "aged mahogany" and "mustard seed". The letters are American Crafts Thickers "Jewelry box".

I entered this layout at Scrap That Baby for Prompt #29 - Baby's day out.

Some close-ups:



Thanks for looking!
I appreciate your comments and would love if you'd become a follower of my blog!
