06/06/13 - SIT: #113 and SIWAS: "Suit and Tie"

I'm here to today to share 2 challenges and my layouts based on those challenges...
Sketch #113: 
Here is my interpretation:
"Remember When...Happy Day"
These pics were taken during Spring Break of this year. We went up to the San Jacinto mountains to go hiking and my hubby took these pics of my daughter and I. My daughter rarely takes pictures w/ me... and I am rarely in pictures so I love these pics!
I had a lot of fun with the "cluster of circles" part of the sketch! And I am still LOVING those self adhesive kraft shapes! I really need to get to Target and see if they have any more!

First off, let me tell you... it is not my Teams week to complete a layout, but when I saw what song was chosen as this week's inspiration I just had too make one anyway!
The song is....drum roll please...."Suit and Tie" by Justin Timberlake.
But of course, if you actually read my post title you already knew that! LOL!
I have loved JT since he was in *NSync, and when he went solo I followed him and he did not disappoint! I have continued to be a huge fan of his and his lastest CD is my obsession right now! So when the other half of our Design Team was assigned his current hit as their inspiration, I just had to jump in and create something as well!
"Dressed Up In Black and White"
Journaling: "David and Madi dancing in the lobby before dinner 10/24/11"

The song actually was an inspiration in many ways for this layout:
> The title, "Suit and Tie" (see my hubby's clothes)
> the fact that the song is about dancing (self-explanatory)
> the line "And you're dressed in that dress I like" (see my daughter's dress)
But I finally settled on another lyric from the song for my title: "All Dressed Up in Black & White"..
although I took out the word "All" because those little letter stickers are a pain to work w/! LOL!
They are both wearing black and white, hence the title choice,  and although it may be difficult to tell my daughter's dress also has pink on it... that's why I went w/ a lot of pink on my layout! Besides the  being happy w/ the look of the layout, I am also happy because I used a lot of leftover items on this!

The pics were taken when we were on our Disney Cruise in 2011. We were waiting in the lobby to be seated for dinner and they were playimg music so my husband grabbed my daughter and started dancing w/ her.  It was the first time they had ever done something like that and she was a little startled at first but later on she got into it and she really enjoyed it! It's hard to tell but in the picture on the right, she actually has her eyes closed as she rests her head on her daddy's chest. Such a precious moment!!!

Okay, that's all from me today!

You have until June 30th!
