Boys festival - Polkadot Door blog hop

It's time for the Polkadot Door Designs blog hop + inspiration challenge.
I'm excited to be invited as a guest designer again!

Really inspirational color combo...
This is what I created:

patterned paper - My Mind's Eye, BasicGrey, Sassafras Lass, Cosmo Cicket, Prima Marketing, Webster's Pages
alphabet sticker - Prima Marketing
sticker - Sassafras Lass
chipboard - My Mind's Eye, Sassafras Lass, Prima Marketing
transparency - Hambly Studios
button - Jenni Bowlin
trim - BasicGrey
twine - My Mind's Eye
other - paper doily, magic mesh, cotton fabric

It's my son's first Boy's Festival (Tango no Sekku - Japanese traditional festival for boys on May 5; we display warrior-dolls to express the hope that boy(s) in the family will grow up healthy and strong).

Here is the list of blogs in this month's blog hop:
