Woohoo! Playing along with a challenge!

Hi everyone, it's been awhile since I had the opportunity to play along with a challenge.  And when I get such an opportunity I tend to gravitate towards Sketchy Thursdays.  Well I LOVE this weeks sketch (9.29). I rotated it and of course changed it up a bit, here's my take.
Most of what is on here is Crate's Toy Box collection.  The bingo card and banner stickers are Jennie Bowlin.  The Charle's Dickin's quote is Bella! Paper Boys Paperz.  The polka dots on the base are stamped over a Crafter's Workshop template.  And woohoo I journaled on a layout again (another thing I'm trying to be better about.)  The journaling reads, "Summer 2011 @ the Bay City State Park.  You were running by and I asked you to stop so I  could take a picture.  You sighed and posed for this.  You look so old to me in this picture, my 5 year old boy, growing up so fast."
Don't forget the die cut challenge that's going on this month at Scrapbookers Anonymous.  And the mini challenges from our birthday month are going on until the 7th.  Stop by Scrapbookers Anonymous and play along!
