Scrap the Boys May challenge

This month at Scrap the Boys, there is an awesome sketch to be inspired by. As soon as I saw it, I knew I wanted to do this.
I have had these photos of nephew Jareth for a couple of years, and this challenge was just perfect for it, with the use of 3 photos. Jareth is a very lucky little boy, to be alive, he nearly died after his birth, but he is a real fighter and pulled through. To see him concentrating on hitting the ball this day is a joy, thinking about what could have been. 
I loved the design in the sketch of the layering of the 2 background papers, but when I was going through my paper stash, I found this Fancy Pants paper that I thought would create the same sort of idea as the sketch. 
I of course added my Charms Creations Super Stars, absolutely perfect for this layout. 
  I then found a few different items that would work, and found these really old Making Memories (remember them?) word sticker tags, which were perfect colour and I liked the words that were printed. I added a flair from Funky Flairs studio.
I am happy with the way this turned out.
 Thanks for looking at my layout, and for any comments you may leave.
