08/11/14 - "Me and My Luv"

Hello and Happy Monday to you!
How goes it?!
This past weekend we celebrated my husband's birthday; his birthday being on Saturday!
We had a fun, busy weekend but I was able to squeeze in a bit of scrapping!
 
Before I share my layout w/ you I want to share where I received my inspiration.
 
Over at "Pixels and Paper" they have this colorful picture:
 
 
The picture reminded my of a colorful piece of PP that I had in my stash so I dug it out. Also the paper has word bubbles on it and the shape of those word bubbles reminded me of the roundness of the sheep!
 
After picking out the paper I had to decide what picture(s) to scrap.
That's where my next inspiration came in; from "Pinspirational Challenges":

So thanks to the 2 inspiration pieces I came up w/ this!
  
"Me and My Luv - 5.11.2014"
Journaling: "At the pool. Excalibur - Vegas 5.11.14"
 
Pictures of David and me at our "Home Away From Home": Vegas!
Not only is the color of the BG paper perfect for the pictures...but I threw in a "playing card" card from my Project Life kit to help tie in the Vegas theme.
 
I also doodled around the word bubbles that I felt pertain to the day and us in general (you know how much I love doodling!):
"Kindred Spirit/So Alike",
"Best Day",
"Besties/So True!",  and
"Let's Have Some Fun/Yay!"
 
And just a little fun tidbit... the washi tape on this layout comes from this:
 
 
I received it for last year for Christmas but I just barely opened it!  I'm not sure why because I love Washi Tape and I love this dispenser!
Honestly I think it comes from my not wanting to open new things because then they are no longer "new" LOL! I have scrapbooking kits that are unopen for the same reason.
That's a bit OCD isn't it?
Anyway, it's open and I look forward to using it more in the future!

  1. what a fun and colorful layout! Even though it is Vegas, it doesn't have to be Vegasy! But the card is a fun addition that it is still Vegas!--ok...that makes sense in my head, but it might sound confusing ha ha ha.

    Great layout :D I love that Washi dispenser!

  6. Awesome layout! Great job with the inspiration. I love that sheep picture, but I can't imagine how it would have inspired me to do anything other than colorful sheep! I'm so literal. Totally jealous of your washi dispenser. New or not, it's fabulous.

  7. A really lovely and colourful page. Thank you for playing with our challenge at Pixels and Paper.
    p.s I was a bit like you with cutting into paper.... But the truth is if you never open or use it you cannot create the most wonderful things.... So be brave open it all and have fun making the most fantastic things...Enjoy :) x
