Dream Big- Die Cut Challenge-SKY

TGIF Ladies!! us girls over at SOUS started our Die Cut challenges the Friday before last and this week's challenge theme is "SKY".. I wanted to think out side of the box and didnt' wanna make your regular "sun shining!" type of sky layout..LOL  dont' get me wrong, those are all beautiful but I just wanted to make something a little different, even for me..LOL
One of our very favorite times when my kids were younger, was to sit and watch Disney Movies while we had lunch and some down time.. rarely did any of them take a nap once they started walking..LOL
this layout was inspired by one of those times and who doesn't like Peter Pan ?.
here is my take on our SKY challenge:
I will admit that this is by far, one of my all time favorite die cut layouts that I've created..  and the photo is of my boys, when they were just babies.. My eldest son would climb into the crib of my youngest and steal his bottle, go hide behind the couch and drink it..LOL  I luv memories like that now that they are in their late teens..
Here are a few close ups of the layout:
 the ship I cut using the "Paper Doll Dress Up" cartrige.. black cardstock and did some doodling on it with white gel pen..

Tinkerbell sitting on the cloud...I had a hard time with her face, even though she isn't cut very small.. and then the city below I also found on the "Paper Doll Dress Up" cartridge.. used my DS to weld it all together..

and a close up of my boys.. Aaron has the really surprised look on his face " o-ohhh, mommy caught me!"..LOL

and for supplies used:

Dark blue, yellow, white, red and black cardstock..

Cricut Cartridges:
Pooh and Friends : Clouds
George and Basic Shapes: Big circle (moon) and title font
Tink and Friends: Tinkerbell and stars
( I used my imagine, white cardstock and the color wheel to create my tink)
Paper Doll Dress Up: Ship and city

pop dots (clouds)
white gel pen for doodling
