Battery Recharge w/ DCWV

 Hello! Today I have a layout using The Sky's the Limit stack from DCWV. There are so many beautiful papers in this stack and so many different uses for it. 
For today's layout I picked a photo of my son taking a much needed nap in December of last year. 

The holidays can be so busy and hectic that we all need a nap now and then just to keep going. Anyone who's been around a toddler for even 5 seconds knows that a nap is just a battery recharge for them. lol My son is no exception. He's a bit like the energizer bunny. So I cherish every little sleepy moment he has.

I picked 3 different patterns from the stack that all had a night time/star theme. I used this pretty starred and doodled one for my background and then cut the other two into smaller sections for layering under my photo.

I used border punches and a corner rounder to add a little more detail and really enjoyed sprucing up these yellow stars and lights with my yellow stickles. For a bit more embellishment I added glossy accents to the moon and then remembered I had these fun bubble stickers with "sleepy" sayings and put a few of them on the layout.

 Here I layered some triangles, cut from a cloud paper I used on another project, to bring attention to the title. I didn't feel the need to do a lot of journaling for this photo. I think this sleepy little head says is all.

I hope you have a fun and crafty day! Don't forget to slow down and recharge your batteries now and then. :)Ange
