SOS March Blend-a-Sketch Challenge - "Never too Old!"

Hi my Scrappy Friends!  I want to share this FUN Sketch Challenge with you from the Scrap Our Stash Blog!  It's our Blend-a-Sketch Challenge - just pick your favorite parts of both layouts and create 1 layout inspired by both sketches - 
Oh - and also include a FRAME on your layout too!
Details, Prize Info and Inspiration can be found on the Scrap Our Stash Blog!!

Here are the sketches:
And here is my take on the challenge:
I used the center part of the left sketch's design, and the banner, single photo, embellishment placement from the right sketch. 

This is a photo of my brother Jack and I.  We stopped in at our parent's home on the way to work one day, and they had packed us each a lunch of homemade soup, and even wrote our names on our lunch bags!!  Love them!!

Here you can see the chipboard frame, and a sticker frame tucked behind it - that is a requirement of the challenge. I love the little paper lunch bag, that I made out of a real lunch bag - and used it to note the date!

I have had this zipper in my stash forever and I thought it worked perfectly for this layout - as it was a very cold morning and we were both "zipped up" and getting ready to go out the door and off to work!
This little journaling corner and embellishments was inspired by the sketch on the left.  I guess you are never too hold to have your parents pack your lunch!!

Thanks for stopping by!  I hope I have inspired you to join play along with us this month at the Scrap Our Stash Blog.
