love you (layout 331)

I created the following layout based on Stuck?! Sketch October 1st challenge (I flipped it 90 degrees):

At first this sketch completely stumped me but then i went through my pictures (took a while since i have about 200 pictures to scrap) and then i came across this little jewel of a picture of my son and I snuggling on our first camping trip in our new trailer.  It just so happened that the day I picked out the photo to use, Paper Crafter's Corner came out with their Magazine Monday Week 73 inspiration and I knew as soon as i saw it i knew what i wanted to do:
Papercrafting Challenge: Magazine Mondays - Week 73 Inspiration Piece (image)

I stamped the background stars with mustard seed and then heat embossed them with martha stewart gold embossing powder. I added the extra stars to make the layout shimmer and misted the background with lindy's starburst tibetan poppy blue to  make it look like a starry night. My son and I always have story time before bed so as soon as i saw the PCC inspiration I knew this was the way i wanted to go.

Thank you for stopping by and for your wonderful comments :)

hope you can play along this month at Stuck?!
