Entry for High Hopes DT Call

My friend Chris just told me about High Hopes Design Team call which ends tomorrow--can't believe I almost missed this deadline! If this is something you'd LOVE to do as well, better hurry over there to enter =) We were given this sketch to follow, designed by the very talented Katharina!

I added crystal effects to his belt--it looks like a white gel pen, but it's actually shiny and puffed up. The dp is called "Offbeat" by Basic Grey, and I used my sewing machine around the blue layer. I had to use a non-HH sentiment because this image was sent to me and I don't have any sayings for it. I thought this would be very cute for a boy.

Well, keeping this pretty short today as housework is piling up! Also, my daughter will be home soon from her Bible Quiz team... it was her first one out of town and I can't wait to hear all about it!
So tell me, what are you inkin'?
