Life is good - Bitten by the Bug

Happy Friday!
The challenge over at Bitten By the Bug this week was to use the "Life is Good" cut from the Graphically Speaking cartridge. Regina and the design team have wonderful talent. Many of you probably have visited the site. If not check it out here.
I love this cartridge. But coming up with something with this cut proved difficult for me. I love playing along and I wasn't going to let this get the best of me!
Here is what I came up with.......

Many of you have seen the post below this one of the baby basket I made for a family member. Well, Alexandria has a big brother named Andrew. So, hoping that he isn't feeling left out with the new baby I decided to make him a little card and got him a book about being a big brother. The whole sentiment is "Life is good" then on the inside it says "when you're a big brother". I love the dinosaurs on Paper Doll Dress Up so I used them.
I used the little Triceratops as the "little sister". They always seemed a little more feminine to me. I dressed her up with a few stickles, adhesive pearls, and a little bow. I ran both dinos through the cuttlebug using a Fiskers Leather plate. I also distressed them both with Tim Holtz distress ink and some Colorbox Cat's eye chalks.
The palm tree is also cut from Paper Doll Dress Up.
The grass was cut from Plantin Schoolbook and altered with Design Studio.
I cut everything twice. I pop dotted "Life is Good", the ferns on the palm tree, both Dinos, and the grass.
Thanks for stopping by and have a wonderful weekend!
