Boy in a Box

I'm carrying on with the Birthday Bash challenges from Sketch-n-Scrap today with a colour challenge from Crystal at Crystal's Garden. She asked us to use at least four colours from the inspiration photo (right), plus grey as a neutral. 

I initially though that I would be confined to plains and subtle single colour patterns, but a good rummage through my scraps box produced a whole assortment of green and blue papers that match the shades in the picture. The colours drew me to photos of my son as a toddler and I picked one of him buried in his toy box.
