Kraft + May challenge

This month the challenge at Kraft+, there is a delicious mood board to be challenged by:
I just loved the colours and designs in this. Countless designs could have been created for this one, alas, I don't have time to do any more than 1. Anyway, I chose to use a photo of our nephews, 2 cute little dudes (Kalden I scrapped last month as well). I loved this photo of them reading, and thought it would go well with the mood board. 
I was inspired by the colours, working with the orange, green and blue. I was also inspired by the denim, the vintage books and the twine. 
I used a vintage book cover as the backing to my photo, and also some pages out of the vintage book. I added the twine behind my embellishments, and my lollipop embellishments were made by me a little while ago, using denim and some scrap fabric that surrounded a bunch of flowers. I sprayed the kraft cardstock with dylusions spray and added some Heidi Swapp colour mist. I had some rub-on alphas that were in the same colours that I scattered around the page to tie in the theme of reading and learning. I used a Charms Creations denim star embellishment and a D-lish Scraps button flair. 
I am really pleased at how this layout turned out.
Thanks for looking at my layout and any comment you may leave.
