POP! Goes the Present

The Challenge: use an onomatopoeia (a word that is a sound) on a layout

Here is my second layout that I did for this week's Sketchy Thursdays sketch.  I also combined it with this week's Issue Challenge at Club CK.  For the sketch, I flipped it over to make room for my journaling that moves right into the title.

I gave John a rather large sleeping bag for Christmas last year and couldn't find a box big enough for it.  I stuffed it into this smaller box and then strapped it down with a tie down strap.  I had him open it a little early because I was afraid it was going to bust out of the box!  It was really stuffed in there.

So, I made up a little song, to the tune of POP goes the weasel, that goes something like this:
All around the Christmas tree
The presents wrapped so pretty
John pulls on the strap around the gift
POP! goes the present!

Again, a single page!!!
