"They Lift Him Up" Mixed Media Layout for entry into the Feb 2015 challenge at Scrap Around The World

This is my latest layout that I completed.  I am entering it into the Feb 2015 Scrap Around the World Challenge here.

The Mood board that they provided to give you inspiration is below:

The first thing that inspired me from this mood board was the sentiment.  It reminded me of a conversation I had with my son a short time ago.  He told me that never did he imagine that he would have four children (he was an only child).  But more than that, he never imagined how much love he would feel for each and every one of them.  He said it overwhelms him sometimes.  The second thing about the mood board that called to me was the color green.  I tend to shy away from the color green so I decided to challenge myself and use a shade of green in this layout.

The following is my layout and the products that I used:

Tim Holtz Tissue Tape
Drywall Tape
Balloon SVG from Lettering Delights (cut on my cricut)
Arrows also cut on the cricut
