Scrapbooking yard photos of Sam

Hi guys! Another quick post before I head to bed! This time, I've got a scrapbook page I made tonight of my nephew Sam...
It's a fairly basic layout, with the polka dots masked using some sequin waste that my friend Michelle sent me , I've been looking for some of this for ages! I taped it down with a bunch of Washi Tape (this stuff is fabulous, because it peels right off!) and painted over it with some black crackle paint. While it was drying, I gathered the rest of my supplies, die cut my photos, and arranged them how I wanted them to appear on the page. I then sat them on the painted section (thinking it was dry) and then removed it to add another embellishment (the Kaisercraft Transparency) and smudged black paint in the middle of the cardstock! I stuck down all the embellishments and photos, then tried to come up with something to cover the smudge.... I thought about a big title, or more embellishments, but thought it looked a bit top heavy, so went with some ants rubons... Here is a close up
I'm entering this into the White With 1 Challenge - WHITE + MAPS + TRAVEL EMBELLISHMENTS. As the only scrapbooking I really do is of my niece and nephew, I had to think about this one for a little while... Then I remembered these pictures of Sam... I used pieces of Bo-Bunny world map patterned paper for a couple of the circles and the travel embellishments include a 'luggage tag', 'post card' and 'passport' stickers. I am also a member of the Facebook group - Crafty Crops! and their challenge was a sketch which I loosely based my layout on...
