This is my first official layout for Stick it Down!  We were asked to design a layout based on this sketch.  This past fall, my husband and I took our daughters to the Georgia Aquarium in Atlanta, Georgia.  It is probably the coolest aquarium I've ever seen!  If you like marine life, they have several whale sharks,  beluga whales, lots of huge manta rays.....It is amazing! Anyways, I thought this sketch would be a perfect design to highlight some of my favorite pictures that I took while we were at the aquarium.  And Fancy Pants' "Down by the Shore" line with the nautical theme papers I felt were the perfect way to showcase these pictures.

This week's RCS challenge inspiration is the 1980's classic "The Breakfast Club."  I'm not sure how many times I watched this when I was growing up a child of the 80's. And even though this film is almost 30 years old, the themes are still alive today.  Don't judge a book by it's cover; don't bully; give people a chance..Getting off my soapbox, I was inspired for this challenge by a picture of my furry children.  The other day, I found my Shepherd Mix, 65+ pound dog using my chihuahua as a pillow pet.  It was one of the most adorable things I have ever seen.  These two dogs couldn't look and be any different from each other physically, but they are best friends.  So, between the thematic link to The Breakfast Club, and the fact that you have to wake up from sleep for breakfast, I was inspired to use this picture for this bi-weekly challenge!

Welcome to new year at RCS!  This bi-weekly challenge is the Disney movie "Snow Buddies."  In other words, make a layout featuring snow in some way.  For this picture, I used a variety of papers from my winter stash to feature pictures of my daughter and dog playing in the snow.  If you play along RCS, link up and you could win a prize from our sponsor Spiegel Mom Scraps!
