Bearybox Layout Challenge no 27

Feeling a little parched from the lack of scrapping, I have decided to follow a few sketches to regain some of my MOJO.  As usual,  I headed off to the Bearybox sketch to try it out.

Her is my simple take of the sketch.  Jessy took the photos of Sean way back in 2007 and I have scrapped these photos.  As an Asian parent,  I always try to resist getting "sucked up" by parents who only expect good grades from their kids and neglect the element of PLAY.  I want to make sure that I remember that a lot of good does come out of play and I should not be basing my kids' successes by the number of As they score.  After all - my only goal is to have happy kids and not really smart ones but who is unable to adapt to social settings and worse still - have no manners...

The journalling goes:

Always remember to play.  When was the last time you had an enjoyable game?  If you quite playing because it is a child's spot,  then you are wrong.  As Bernard Shaw said:,  "We do not stop playing because we grow old; we grow old because we stop playing."

I have copied this quote from the internet and its so apt.  

Materials used:
{Scarlet Lime kit - GCD pp,  SEI pp, Chipboards at the corner - lost the names - my apologies,  the journal sticker and the swirl at the bottom},  Making Memories Boy Chipboard Tag,  K n Co, Situation spinner,  Sassafras lass cloud stickers,   Bazzill cs,  Zig pen for journalling and 3D pop up dots.
