Carousel - Paper Poppy Kit Co. Challenge

I managed to work on a layout last night and just finished putting the finishing touches on it when I got home from work today.    For the past several months I have been buying the monthly kits from Paper Poppy Kit Co.  Aphra does a great job filling her kits!
When I received my September kit it was full of Sassafras Lass Indie Girl paper and stickers.   When I first looked at the paper all I could think of was something girlie.  I told myself to think outside of the box.  As I was looking through some old pictures I came across this one of my son when he was little, riding the carousel.  As soon as I noticed the colors in the horse along with the decor of the carousel, I knew I could work this layout with the Indie Girl paper.  The September challenge over at Paper Poppy Kit is to use three different edges on  your layout.  This was quite easy given the choices of all the Indie Girl border stickers and the red and pink ribbon included in the kit.
  Well I need to get going.  I've got to fix some dinner, do a load of laundry and be ready at 8:00 to watch Glee!
Thanks for stopping by!
