Blue boy scrapbook layout featuring Maja Denim and Friends papers, cricut cutting, cloud, airplane, wood, bunting banner, Tim Holtz Quote chips with plaid and stripes

Hi all! I'm back with another layout using the Winter Adventures kit from International Scrapbook Garden. I've already professed my undying love for the Maja Denim and Friends papers featured in this kit in my last two projects (Pure Delight & Always Wonder), so for this layout I wanted to do something a little simpler and let the papers shine. 

{I even managed to get the bit of the polka dot "Paisley" navy blue paper I proclaimed to be my favorite paper of all time!}

I used my Cricut Explore to cut out the airplane, cloud, and banner.

I was trying to figure out what I was going to use as my "smoke" from the plane and tried some twine but when I spied the wood flourishes from the kit. {and I got out of gluing string into a curlicue!}

The chip phrases are from Tim Holtz (included in the embellishment bonus kit).

The "You're Awesome" phrase is from the border on one of the B-sides (the back of the information strip at the bottom). I love that you get this fun little "freebie" to add another layer of embellishing.

The story behind that little sun peeking out from behind the cloud is that I had that little piece leftover from cutting out the banner and it wedged itself into that spot {not at all surprising with the mess on the kitchen counter where I've been scrapping lately}. I figured it wanted to live there and who am I to say no to my little paper friends? {commit me now}
