a little bit of future blackmail

i'm so excited for the new/revised challenge over at unity - the unity be inspired challenge! i have a TON of their stamps (mostly the itty bitty's - they're so cute!!)!

this time they have three different ways to play along! sketch challenge for a card, or layout, and a color inspiration!! well...i had to make a layout - i found this picture of my biggest little mann from when he was just learning to use the potty...and well, you'll see. how could i NOT scrap this for future blackmail - i mean memories! ;) he he!

here's the layout sketch:
and he's my layout!! 

love it!!!!! that little mann just LOVES hockey. he always has his skates on with his hockey stick at home. he LOVES watching it on TV, too. i really can't re-iterate how much this kid loves hockey. ha ha! i used three itty bitty stamps - change is a good thing, how's it rollin and crappy day. ha ha! i even used one of the sentiments from a KOTM that i have - april 2012 (follow your own).

i flicked some lunch tray mister huey's onto the background of the layout (i liked the tone on tone look!).

then, i paper pieced the undies (which my husband could NOT believe i had an underwear stamp!!) and colored in the skates to match his own skates. :) they were both popped up for dimension, too. i also added some flair i had because...well...ok i know this is a busy layout, but there was so much to add! lol! and i wanted to incorporate all of the little 'highlights' (the potty training, hockey, etc) of the layouts so we could remember what an addict he was, even in just his brand new underwear! :) silly kid!

i finished off with a bunch of thickers for the titles, and washi tape, and vwa-la! future blackmail for my oldest little mann! he he! this makes me happy! and i can't wait to get inky again later today! :)
