Never Let Me Go Layout

Hello all! I've been so uninspired lately that I spent a week reorganizing my scrap space. It was so nice to work in my improved atmosphere and complete a layout. Hopefully I'll have some time to post some pics of my space.

This layout was inspired by three different challenges. My daughter loved to practice riding her tricycle and now her training bike down the sidewalk after dinner. At first she was so slow but eventually picked up the pace. But not without many walks home with Mommy carrying the tricycle because Cosette was tired.

First, I chose a sketch from Stuck?! Sketches.

Next, I chose the two pictures and the colour scheme from Let's Capture Our Memories: Color Spot Challenge. I really wanted to use my kit with the bicycle pictures to match the photos and was so happy to come across this scheme that matches my kit.

Finally, I chose my title from the Scrap It With A Song Challenge. I chose the song "Never Let Me Go" by Florence and The Machine. I liked the title because my daughter never wanted us to let go of the bike. Even though it was back-breaking trying to hold a tricycle, it was a mixture of proud and sad to see her master it. I kinda never want to let go.
I used a My Mind's Eye: My Girl kit for the majority of the layout. The word "never" is written with Studio Calico #105 stickers. The tag and "me" button are from Fancy Pants: Me-ology. I also splattered some white paint. I'm still trying to get the hang of this.
Thanks for stopping by!
