Midway Blog hop

Welcome to the October Afternoon Midway blog hop! I'm last on the stop so if you need a list of the participants or to start from the beginning (and you'll want to start from the beginning for a chance to win a collection kit!) head here.
This line ranks as one of my top favorites EVER from October Afternoon. And I like me some OA so I feel like that's saying something. Maybe it's the colors. Maybe it's the patterns. Maybe it's the insane cool washi. Whatever it is...I like it. A lot.
I whipped up this layout last night and used snippets of several products from the line. A solid background keeps it from being too crazy. I think ;) It's about my serious boy. The thinker. The overanalyzer. The "let's evaluate the situation and predict every outcome" guy. And that is him. And it's perfect. But I want him to know it's okay to be a little goofy. A little silly. A little crazy.
He is only 6 after all.
Speaking of insane cool washi...how about let's give some away?
This roll of awesome could not get in my hands fast enough. My favorite washi tape from CHA...and I am a washi tape hoarder ;)  Leave a comment, any kind of comment, and one could be heading your way too. Don't forget to enter to win a Midway collection kit on the October Afternoon blog, as well as a chance win other Midway goodies on each blog in the hop. I hope you've enjoyed seeing more of the Midway line! Enjoy your Wednesday :)
