It's 5 O'Clock Somewhere Layout

I hope you are having a great day like my father-in-law in this picture. He is always checking to make sure everyone has a beverage and I guess his pockets came in handy that day.

I used the sketch at the Midweek Mojo Marigold #2.
I began with the picture because it worked really well as a square and I thought it would be a lot of fun to scrap. Then I pulled out my camping stash. I really wanted some orange to match his shirt but I didn't have much so I spent way to long trying to select papers. I put the papers aside and decided that the title would be even harder to match so I pulled all the brown, blue and orange alphas out and played around with them until I got what you see. I added the clouds when I realized I left a lot of space at the top and I didn't want to move all those alphas! I decided not to use the top strip in the sketch because the page was already busy.
I'm also joining the Cut Shoppe Challenge where you use one of their files. I used the Happy Clouds file.
