Where the wild things are

The challenge over at Child's play Challenge is to Use the book
"Where the wild things are"
as your inspiration

I had a lot of fun with this one.  Here's what I did
Sometimes I think my oldest is a wild thing. 
Here's a picture of her in a tent she made of sticks and a sheet. 
 Kind of reminds me of the one Max is building in the book
 For the "Wild thing" page element.
 I scanned a page from the book and fussy cut around the monster I wanted
 Did the same thing with Max except put him up on some pop dots
 I used modified lines from the book for my journaling and wrapped it around the title.
The bottom portion of the layout is heat embossed with topiary green
I was trying to mimic all of the cross hatching in the drawings from the book.
I wasn't crazy about how it looked  until I added the ribbon twine and buttons

So come find out where the wild things are over at Child's play
  You have until the end of the month to link your challenge
