Boys will be Boys - December Hip Kit - Stuck sketches

Hi there, I hope it is going well in your neck of the woods.  Yesterday I cut into my December Hip Kit to take part in the 15 January Stuck sketch challenge.  I scrapped two photos that I took of my grandsons Christian and Lukas when we went for lunch at Bramon wine estate in December.  Here is my page.

Supply list:  Patterned papers:  Dec Hip Kit exclusives, Paige Evans; Cardstock: American Craft; Letter Stickers: American Craft (Charming) Black, Turquoise - Pink Fresh Studio; Wood veneer: Hip Kit exclusive arrow, Jillibean Soup (Smile); Tassels: Maggie Holmes; Acrylic Stars: Hip Kit Exclusives; Enamel dots: My Minds Eye (Sugar Plum); Tag: Paige Evans; Stencil: Heidi Swapp; Mist: Prima Color Bloom (Storm Cloud); Dies: Quickcutz stars

The sketch:

 I love to outline my patterned papers to create separation between the layers.  Love those little tassels.

 I love white background paper but because the embellishing of this page is minimal I decided to mist some light grey stars onto the background.  I also stitched around my circle :-)

 Those cute little acrylic stars are exclusive to the Hip Kits and I would love to lay my hands on more of them.

 The sketch called for the long title and the photos show that "boys will be boys".

The "Smile" wood veneer is from an older Hip Kit.

    I agree those little acrylic stars are gorgeous!!!
