10/11/13 - "Grow Old With You"

Hello, hello!
I wanted to drop in and share w/ you my latest layout.

I made this last night and I love it so very much!

The picture on the layout is a picture of my hubby and I back in 2003.
So 3 years after we started dating.

I hope to eventually better narrow down the time period.
But for now, we'll just leave it as "a long time ago"!

"Grow Old With You"
Journaling = the lyrics to "Grow Old With You":
I wanna make you smile whenever you're sad
Carry you around when your arthritis is bad
Oh all I wanna do is grow old with you

I'll get your medicine when your tummy aches
Build you a fire if the furnace breaks
Oh it could be so nice, growing old with you

I'll miss you
Kiss you
Give you my coat when you are cold

Need you
Feed you
Even let ya hold the remote control

So let me do the dishes in our kitchen sink
Put you to bed when you've had too much to drink
I could be the man who grows old with you
I wanna grow old with you

This was created for many challenges- Challenges:

> October Music Challenge - Category #1 Lyrics
The lyrics are of "Grow Old With You" written and sung by Adam Sandler in the movie "The Wedding Singer".
(we say that's our song)
*No twist

>October Hoarders Challenge - The brads, the large blue/white/kraft flower, the title letters, photo corners, and "happy" banner (under the pic) are all over a year old.
*No twist

>October Scraps Challenge: The music PP, the black paper, the blue/white/kraft flower (last on the sheet), and the white paper matting the lyrics are all scraps.
*No twist

Blog Challenges:

> "Use it Tuesday" - SCRAPS, PIECES, ODDS & ENDS
Scraps info listed above

> "Twisted Tuesdays" - Lots of layers and Metal
You can clearly see the layers, the metal is the 4 brads

I kinda had them all in mind while creating the layout but, other than having the Music Challenge clearly on my mind, I just let loose and had fun creating it!

I have a 4-day weekend this weekend so I am hoping to have more scrappy
Have a good weekend!
