Urban Play Hard Layout

I was inspired by a sketch challenge yesterday with the SG Scrap Squad. This happens to be a free sketch from the September, 2015 Create Magazine. When I first saw it, Urban instantly came to mind. Wouldn't you know it, I had put Urban away earlier in the day. 

I don't know about you, but Urban is one of my favorite boy kits in a long time. I don't think I've been this excited about a masculine kit since Later Sk8r. 

Paper: Urban, Sapphire CS, White Daisy CS, Saffron CS (CTMH)
Tools: Paper-Piercer, Micro-Tip Scissors (CTMH)
Other: White Embroidery Floss (retired), Urban Complements, Whisper Twine, Durables Triangle Studs (CTMH)

It just so happens that this sketch was needed; in recent browsings of my son's scrapbook albums, I noticed that I'm missing some first and last layout pages.

I would like to enter this into the Heart 2 Heart Challenge for this week: Favorite Paper Pack. So what's your favorite paper?
