Daddy, That tickles- SOUS challenge

Another Friday reveal for you lovely ladies today.. wooo hooo..LOL.. 
Us girls over at SOUS had a wonderful sketch by Becky Fleck this week.. We though that it would be a great way to be able to let your creative juices flow..  I found some great photos of my oldest son Aaron playing with his daddy when he was just a tiny baby.. They used to do their nightly tickel routine and then off to bed it went.. I miss those days.. He's 17 now and its not like I can just walk up to him and blow on his tummy...LOL
so, here is the little layout I created this week.. I love Elmo.. I actually bought the boys a tickel me elmo, still have stashed away.. I just dont' have any photos of them playing with it..

I think the little elmos came out super cute.. :O)

Here are a few close ups..

I'm not really good at journaling and for some reason my printer wouldn't work, so I had to hand journal..

and for supplies used:

Papers by : my minds eye: Complete boy
cardstock: orange, cream, red, yellow and black

cricut cartridges: 
Sesame Street Friends:
George and Basic Shapes: 
little sqaures for title base and circle
Plantin schoolbook:
Title font and rick-a-rack

edge distress tool
black pen for faux stitching and journaling

Tim Holtz distress ink: walnut stain
Tim Holtz stamps 

well, another layout all finished..LOL
Thank you ladies so much for stopping and taking a look.. I hope you get time to stop by SOUS this week to see what our extremely talented design team has created using the same sketch and I also it inspires you to join in on the fun with us this week..
