09/11/13 - CPC: "Blues Clues"

Today's post is to alert you to the new challenge over at "Child's Play Challenges".
The inspiration this week: "Blues Clues":
 
 
 
 
My son loved "Blues Clues" when he was little!!! But surprisingly I don't have any pictures of him that would fit this challenge!
That's okay though, because I was still inspired...
My first thought was I wanted to at least do something w/ the color blue...
 and it just so happened that inspiration hit me while I was lovingly lounging away on my couch (yes, I said "lovingly lounging" LOL)! My couch is gray which would go great w/ a blue color scheme. Not to mention, didn't Steve have a piece of furniture they referrred to a lot on the show? Yes! The "thinking chair"!
 
From those thoughts, this layout was born:
 
"Couch Luv" 
Journaling: " I love my Lazyboy couch! It's my favorite place to lounge, and sleep, in my
house; so comfty! It's so big I had to take 2 pictures to fit it all in. It seats 7 comfortably and
has 4 recliners, a 'side table' and electrical. Worth every penny!"
 
This past weekened I was enjoying a nice peaceful lounge on my couch and just thinking to myself how much I love it and decided I needed to record this "love" for my future self to look back on as well as for future generations...
 
In the pictures my couch looks blue, but in reality it's more of a gray color.  That is why besides blue I used a piece of gray (and white) PP in my design.
 
I used an old Sketches in Thyme sketch as inspiration:
 
 
 

Not a whole lot to say otherwise about this layout except it is really making me wish I was at home right now so I can enjoy my couch!
Oh, well something to look forward to, right?!

Speaking of something to look forward to, we at CPC look forward to seeing your take on our challenge.
Please don't forget to come play w/ us!

  1. I love it! Good idea to record a beloved piece of furniture. That couch sounds awesome!

    I always assumed you blogged from home, so I surprised to read that you wish you were at home. You're able to blog from work, or are you somewhere else?

    1. I (mostly) blog at work...shhhhhhh! :0p
      I actually have more free time at work, can you believe it?!

      Funny thing though, I just barely, like a couple of weeks ago learned to schedule my posts.
      So although I do blog at work... when my posts go live they do so based on a schedule.
