You are my SUNSHINE layout

A while back I found Sketches In Thyme. I have been wanting to submit an entry for one of their challenges, and today while the Little One was taking a nap I finally had a chance to put a layout together. Here is the sketch for Challenge #9:
And here is what I came up with:
I have to say, "I LOVE my Gypsy!" I used it to help me "search" for all of the cuts I wanted, to make my sun HUGE, and to weld my "you are my" together.
*The sun is from Gypsy wanderings and was cut at 11.59" (height).
*The "You are my" is from the Feeling Groovy (Loooove this font!) Lite cart and was cut at 2".
*The "Sunshine"(cut at 2.50") and shadow (cut at 2.53") are also from Gypsy wanderings.
*The puffy clouds are from Create a Critter and were cut at 1.82", and the outline clouds are from Graphically Speaking and were cut at 1.59".

Papers are from Stampin' Up. I used Baja Breeze stamp pad to ink around the edges of "you are my," and the clouds.

I also used a brown Bazzill scallop border to add some dimension. Then I "sugared" my SUNSHINE phrase by putting it in my Xyron upside down and then used Starbright gold glitter. Lastly, I used SU's dimensionals to "pop" up the phrase. 
I added the date and "Two Weeks New!" using Making Memories Alphababies stickers.
Just as I was finishing up this layout I came across Frosted Designs challenge "Celebrate Life," and I thought that this would also fit in perfect over there too! This precious Little Pickle Princess has been 6 YEARS in the making, and this story is absolutely amazing! We celebrate her and our lives together DAILY! Adoption is a beautiful blessing! Here's to my Little Sunshine and all of you! :)
