10/19/15 - Poolside and Candles

Hi all!
Stopping by to share my latest layouts!
Seems once I started scrapbooking my mojo came back!
 "My Kind of Monday"
" .Starbucks  .Bloody Mary  .Lying poolside at Ceasars Palace in Vegas 
.Quality time w/ my honey
   = a wonderful 14th anniversary and...  My Kind of Monday "               

For the "October Round Robin"Challenge:
There are teams of 4 people, one person for each week, similar to a relay race. The person assigned for week 1 in each group will start their team off with a layout depending on what the specs and twist will be. Then the following week, everyone assigned to week 2 will lift off their week 1 team member and so on.
I was 3rd in line.
MarciLB started the round w/ this layout: Fishing 
JustLyn was 2nd and she created this (lifting Marci): Beach Bliss
Then I lifted from Lyn.
There are 4 people in each group so the next/last person lifts me.
".Green tea Frappuccino ."Jurassic World" . Archery Session .Olive Garden .Homemade Caramel cheesecake .Harry Potter book set . Target GC = Happy Birthday!"

My son's 20th Birthday
He's a low-key kinda guy so nothing wild....
just a few of his favorite things.
(I already did a layout about his archery session: "Archery")
For the "October Ugly Paper" challenge.
Each person joins and gets the name of another person in the challenge to send 2 ugly papers and an embellishment to use for their project.
You have to use the papers but using the embellishment is optional; I didn't use the one that was sent to me.
The "uglies" are the BG paper and the grey/white/yellow plaid paper.
Not really ugly at all (ugly is subjective) and they went well w/ my son's birthday photos.

I just realized I forgot to add the date so I will go back and do so. I also spelled Frappuccino wrong on the layout - ugh! Oh well too late now!

You may have noticed that both layouts have journaling in a list format.
Lately I've been finding it's an easier way to tell the story w/out being too lengthy.
If you're wondering...
yes I'm still reading but not as much.
I need to take advantage of this "creative mojo" while I've got it!
I'll have a "Reading Challenge" update soon though!


  1. Love love love these! LOVING the candles on the second one and the circles on the first!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  2. These are great...glad you got your creative mojo back :)

  3. Yea for more pages! I'm inspired by your first one. I don't use circles often because I think I have to fit stuff in them, but I love that you've used rectangular shapes that extend beyond the circle. Super cute!


Thanks for all your comments!!! They really mean a lot to me!!!
