Ride Junkie

I will honestly say that putting my two-year old on a roller coaster was not at the top of my list.  However, Pete is a die-hard ride-lover and there was no height requirement for this particular roller coaster at Marineland.  Off they went to wait in line, while I stayed with a sleeping Owen in the stroller.
I used Sketchy Thursday's 8.4 Sketch as my inspiration for this layout...

I started with a sheet of roughed up 12x12 Recollections Kraft paper and smeared some teal blue craft paint here and there.  The blue/green layering papers belong to Splash Dance by Imaginisce and the brown is a piece from Fancy Pants, Fine and Dandy (Snazzy).  I used my Sew Easy to make some loop-de-loops on the layout and to stitch down the Snazzy card stock.  The yellow trims also belong to Fine and Dandy (LOVE these kinds of trims...LOVE), a bit of twine, Pearls from my LSS, a random button from my stash, and, of course, Thickers for the title.  I doodled on a couple of the orange letters which hopefully adds a bit of interest to the plain Jane letters.  :)
