SOS Feb sketch - "Just a Bunch of Characters"

Hi Scrap Happy Peeps!  It's the middle of February and time for the reveal of  my Inspiration Design Team Layout for this month's Sketch  PLUS 3 Challenge over at Scrap Our Stash!

Not only do we challenge you to use the sketch, but you have to pick ONE item from each of the (3) columns/lists below the sketch!  I can't wait to see what you pick and come up with!

Here is this month's Sketch +3

And here is my take on the challenge:
I LOVE this sketch! It includes 2 tags and I love to pop dot my photos and create little pockets for tags, that I can include journaling on! I also love any opportunity to layer lots of pattern papers too!  These photos are from our Character Breakfast, aboard the Disney Magic, on our West Bound TransAtlantic Cruise in Sept of 2014!
I used the following items from the LIST:
List 1 : Dark Pink Bazzil Paper and Picked Raspberry Distress Stain
List 2: Echo Park "Lucky in Love" and "Selfie Camera" papers
List 3: Fancy Pants "Summer Sun" and "Just Beachy" papers
Here are some close ups for you:
Here you can see one of the tags with lots of coordinating fibers

Just a Bunch of Characters! LOL! Love that little Pink Mickey Bling!

Here is the one tag, out of the pocket - journaling is on the back.

I love this little corner - I double matted the heart/camera sticker from Simple Stories "Enchanted" collection. The heart and star are from the chipboard embellies from that collection too.  I'm a sucker for adding washi tape, and I thought these colors went well. Of course I had to add a little bling here - and added that turquoise sequin to round out my "group of 3" rule!

The chipboard title was sprayed with Tattered Angeles PATINA Glimmer Mist - then glazed with Dimensional Magic - it is not really as dark as it shows in the photo.  Speaking of the photo - the servers on the ship make silly hats for everyone, using cloth napkins - so glad my guys played along!
Another grouping of "3" by the large Mickey Head Bling, and some more washi tape. You can see the other tag, tucked in the pocket I made behind the photo, along with lots of lovely fibers and layers too!

Here is the other tag lifted out of the pocket. I added some brads to break up all the stripes and add another texture/element to the layout.

As always, thanks for stopping by!  I hope I inspired you to CREATE and PLAY along with us at Scrap Our Stash!  Head over to the SOS Blog for all the Challenge Rules and PRIZE Details!
