Practical Scrappers - Sasya's Sketch

Loved Sasya's sketch for last week at Practical Scrappers. I'm not sure I finished on time to play along, but anyway I enjoyed working on it A LOT! Here it is:

The title is "rocket" and not the Spanish "cohete", as my daughter uses the English word for it (growing up bilingual, although she speaks 99.9% Spanish at home, there are some words she prefers in the English version, this one in particular is probably a result of her love for Little Einsteins, which she watches mostly in English). We bought that "whistling rocket" before going on a trail joining the lovely towns of Bourton-on-the-Water and The Slaughters. It was a long walk for her, but with the help of the rocket, throwing it and running to see who could catch it first, she didn't mind at all!

I paper-pieced a whistling rocket to fly above the title, and used a rocket clipart to replace the word in the journalling. I printed the journalling strip on a transparency and I was going to cut them thinner but then decided to overlap them, as I liked the effect.
