Stuck Sketches August 1 challenge

I am hoping this month I get to do a few more layouts than I did last month, with going away on holiday, there was little time for scrapping.
This month I have had a go at the sketch at Stuck sketches. I really do love a good sketch, and this does not disappoint:
The trickiest thing for me was to find 2 photos that were going to work for me, and I found these ones taken a while ago, meeting my youngest nephew for the first time. We live a long distance from each other, and it is hard to not watch my nephews growing up. 
I started by applying some texture paste to the background paper, not that you can see it, as I then sprayed over that with mist. I also added some cotton thread under my clusters over the mist spray. 
I added embellishments from Charms Creations - x, o and tab
I really like the gentility of this layout. 
Thanks for looking and for any comments you may leave.
