The Paper Variety Photo Inspiration Challenge

The challenge this week at The Paper Variety is this photo inspiration challenge.  How does this photo inspire you?  Maybe the colors of the puzzle pieces or the black and white stripes of the boy's shirt provide inspiration for your paper project?  Maybe the boy's glasses or a book theme?  I jumped off at the book theme and used the title of a wonderful book that my husband gave me last Christmas for the title of my layout..."The Lucky One"

 I used the great sketch over at Artful Delight this month and Echo Park's collection "Country Drive" for this layout.  I just LOVE Echo Park and usually order their collections online.  Well one recent Saturday Dave told me he would take me to my favorite scrapbook store in Orlando (90 minutes away),  I called ahead of time and they had one collection of "Country Drive" left and they saved it for me.  While we were in Orlando we also stopped at our favorite Chicago stuffed pizza joint...Giordano' Dave got some enjoyment out of the day as well.  We have been married for over 8 years now and I still get weak-kneed sometimes when I look at him.  Yes, I am "The Lucky One"

So how does this photo inspire you?  Enter over at The Paper Variety this week and look at what you might win:
