Happy Scrappers May Challenge - anything goes

Well it's the first Saturday of the month so it's time to say welcome to the first of our monthly challenge here at Happy Scrappers. I'm delighted to have been chosen for the design team and I hope you enjoy my layouts.
Our theme this time is Anything Goes so we hope to see lots of layouts from you all.
Here's my inspiration.

This layout was done in Craft Artist Platinum using a kit available from Daisy Trail. I followed a sketch from Stuck on You Sketches. The photo is my eldest who is nearly 22 so I'm only a little behind with my scrapping!!

This is the sketch I followed.

You have a month to enter the challenge and our next one will go live on the 2nd June. Hope you can join us.

Challenges entered:
Stuck on You - sketch
Our Craft Lounge - scrap page
