Mid Week Mojo - Pearl 6 and Color Me Scrappy 10

I get to combine two challenges again this week. I like that. So I used the colors from Color Me Scrappy challenge and the sketch was from Scrapbook steals Mid Week Mojo.

I loved the sketch and the colors. There was hot pink in the mix. Two boys and hot pink? Instead of shying away from using the color, I decided to go all the way in and use it generously on the layout.  Now in the layout challenge the designer used a hexagon cut out background. I just loved that totally.... the hexagon fad has been around for quite some time now and I haven't made a single layout with hexagons till this one. I wanted to make a hexagon mat too. But I don't have a cameo, so I used Gypsy and cricut. I should have made the hexagons a little bigger, but it turned out like a close first cousin to the that cut out with Cameo. I also cut a sample one out first, and used that as a template to spray on some yellow mist as the background for my journal block.
P.S.  I still can't find my power cable for my gypsy so I had drive around quite a bit and charge it with my car charger again.... WHERE COULD IT POSSIBLY BE? I think it is high time that I just get a new one.
For this layout I decided to use a photo that I took on trip to Cancun. We had just reached there and Arjun couldn't wait to run into the water even though it was getting dark. But the water was so nice and the weather so great that we decided to go into the water anyway. This photo was taken on our walk to the ocean.
Here is my layout:
