Joy Rides! ( and a freebie for SCAL)

I made this layout for my little girls, using a fab sketch by Julie Bonner for the Magpie Club. Lindsay's Stamp Stuff has a new set of digistamps, On The Line, with some of the cutest little banners in it! I couldn't wait to do something with them, and the sketch fit them perfectly. I printed the digis on various colors and patterns of paper and vellum, and shaded them with my copics (just on the stitching and the ruffles).There was a good bit of "fussy cutting" required, but I made my hubby help ;-) .
I made the title in SCAL, which you can download HERE.
After I cut it out, I ran it through my Cuttlebug with the Swiss Dots embossing folder, and inked it with white ink to make it stand out. I did stretch it to make a double page spread, 'cause I have soooo many photos to scrap!
The tag that I journaled on was a stamp (clear acrylic) from Autumn Leaves, The patterned papers are from GCD Studios, and the round "lollipop" flower/"ferris wheel" accents are "flowers" that I received from a swap that I was in on 2Peas.

Here are the challenges that I am entering this page into:
Magpie Club: sketch
