Happily ever after starts here

I was inspired by the sketch and inspiration photo at Scrap out Stash Challenge #25 for this layout.     
For the challenge you are to 
Create a layout inspired by our April Sketch...
AND...the inspiration photo below.
(You are allowed to choose from the colors, shapes, sayings, etc...your choice.  

The April sketch created by Laura Whitaker:
Here is the photo inspiration 
The first thing that caught my attention was This is so the Happy Place sign.  
Disneyland is definitely our Happy Place so I went through some pics of a recent trip. 
I used the sign Happily ever after starts here to mirror the happy place sign.   
I decided on this adorable pic of my grandson Micah, who is 2, with Ana from Frozen.  I love the dreamy look of his face.  He is so delighted when he meets the characters.  
I selected the Simple Stories Enchanted Collection because of the colors in the inspirations photo- the pinks, white, green, yellow, light blue and purple.  I used the stripes, dots and chevrons because I found these on the inspiration photo also.  
I challenged myself to use the princess inspired paper but to not make it too girly.  
I am happy the way it turned out although because the colors are muted its hard to show its true beauty.  Hope you enjoyed my layout.
