My Guys: Post 2 of 2

This is my second post of the day.  It is my second entry for the current Once Upon a ... Sketch challenge.  To see my other entry, please look at the post below this one.

Supplies: weathered green patterned paper (Cosmo Cricket), graph and ledger papers (October Afternoon), border sticker (Bella Blvd), heart sticker (Basic Grey), flower sticker (Bella Blvd), alphabet stickers (October Afternoon), journaling spots (Bella Blvd), pen (Creative Memories).

Once again, I've reduced the sketch to its basic elements, in order to create a CAS layout.  Below are a couple close-up photos.

Can you see the copy of John Lennon's signature embroidered on my son's shirt?  The rhinoceros artwork is also by John Lennon.  When my son was small, the company called Carter's produced a line of baby clothes featuring John Lennon's whimsical artwork.  The line was called "Real Love," after the song by John.  I also used "Real Love" as the title for this layout...not just because of the Beatles connection, but because what I feel for my son is 100% REAL LOVE.

In this little journaling spot, I wrote "born a Beatles fan."  LOL

The journaling in the larger journaling box on this layout reads: "I loved dressing A. in the John Lennon-inspired 'Real Love' clothes from Carters."

Thanks for checking out this layout about my beloved son.  To see the layout about my husband that I also entered in Once Upon a ... Sketch, please see the post below this one.  Thanks!
