Silly Gifts from Holiday - Stuck sketches mid-month challenge

As soon as I saw this sketch from Stuck? sketches I knew that it was meant for me. Sometimes I see a sketch and I can immediately envision what my page will look like when finished and this was one of those occasions. Laura's sketches are always fantastic!!!
Anyway, I had this series of photos waiting to be scrapped and they were perfect for this layout design. Jaime, my adult son, bought back these brightly coloured animal whistles for his little siblings when he visited Mexico earlier this year. The kids absolutely loved them and spent many happy hours in the garden trying to mimic birds and other animals.
I kept very close to the sketch - after all why change something that works so well? The papers that I used are from October Afternoon. Here are a couple of close-ups:

Thanks for taking the time to visit my blog today - have a great week!
