Friends layout

I have a layout today that I made for the Pause Dream Enjoy challenge theme of "friends".  (Hope you will come and play along too-see details at the bottom of the post!)  I had pics of Son#1 with his friends at the park (they are dressed up for an orchestra concert).  I used the CM Cheerful Seasons cartridge for all the cuts, including the font for "fun".  (Did you know this cartridge has three fonts?)  I especially like the leaf in the circle cut.

The paper is from one of my favorite Echo Park collections ever called This and That Charming, with very boy-friendly colors.  I wrestled with finding paper to work with the green ties in the pictures, but this fairly neutral colored background with some accents of green and blue in the die cuts worked.  But I was ready to pull my hair out before I settled on this-it gave me fits, I tell you!
