Wednesday REading with Nanny

Happy Wednesday!

I know I don't usually post on Wednesdays but I wanted to get my layout entered into the Elle's Studio Challenge. When I saw this sketch my mind was just so full of ideas!
Here is my take on the sketch.  I followed it pretty closely becuase I really loved the design. I had this photo of my boys sitting on the couch with my mom reading together.  I just love that they are so close to her and that she is a part of our everyday life!  So when I saw this sketch I immediately thought of this photo. 
For my layout I used the Everyday moments collection.  I splurged a couple of months ago and bought this.  I really love the collection because it is very gender neutral and really works with everything.  I layered my paper and then added the journaling tag.  I cut out the circle so that it would bit on top of the layers and photo.  I then wanted to add different textures to my layout and I stamped some stars using a Some Odd Girl stamp in brown and red.  I also stamped the sentiment awesome sauce with a Some Odd Girl stamp as well.  Next, I mixed Studio Calico wood veneer stars with Elle's Studio wood veneer stars.  Finally I cute out the happiness tag and added that at the bottom.   I really love how it turned out and I have to say I had soooo much fun making it.
