Scrap Your Story- Challenge numero uno!!!!!!

So... Speaking of SYS.... The first challenge to tackle was to create a layout using only one photo.  Easy peasy, right?!?!?  I decided on scrapping a photo of my husband and youngest daughter on her very first trip to Disney World!  She was enamored with all the excitement and couldn't take her eyes off of Mickey and all his friends :-) I happened to take a really cute photo of her sitting on daddy's shoulders as she watched one of the many shows and thought it perfect for this challenge!!!!!
Here is a sketch by Brenshevia that I used to create this layout:

And here is my page...

Isn't she adorable?!?!?! 
 I started by using papers by DCWV Rustic Stack (I absolutely fell in LOVE with them as soon as I saw them!!!!) and used my Cricut Expression 2 to create the die-cut.  Of course, everything I make gets distressed so there's plenty of distressed edges and ink!!!  I used a vellum quote by DCWV also for the title and thickers for the bottom portion.  There are other various embellies by K&Company and Soft Spoken.  
I typed my journaling on my computer then printed it paper from the same paper stack and cut it in strips, then inked the edges for definition.  I have to say, I am very pleased with this type of journaling :-)  

Here are some close-ups of the journaling...
