CDAC Progressive Challenge 12 and TPV inspiration

As I get ready to head out to Boston for a week, I'm trying to get lots of projects done!  Tonight, I completed the last challenge for the CDAC Progressive Challenge, and it also works for the latest challenge at The Paper Variety.
I LOVE this image from Fred She Said!  I thought the little boy and his pet frog were just SOOO cute!!!  I colored the image with Crayola colored pencils and adhered it to my card with pop dots.  Both background papers on the card are from Echo Park's A Boy's Life, which I won during last weekend's Crop 'til You Drop in the Yahoo group Scrappin' 'n' Chattin' (Thanks, Theresa!).  The buttons are from my stash, and the sentiment is from The {Stamps} of Life.

The Paper Variety provided a photo for inspiration for this week's challenge:
As you can probably tell, I took quite a bit of inspiration from this photo.  I used the green for the pet frog, shades of blue in the little boy's shirt and in the background paper, and red for his hair.  I just loved them all!  The little boy reminds me of my cousin Kyle when he was little--red hair and all!

Be sure to stop back by later this week to see my newest project for the new challenge at Pattie's Creations AND I'll be in the Shabby Accents Blog Hop on the 27th and 28th with blog candy to give away!!!  Happy scrapping, everyone!
