03/16/20 - "Use Your Stuff Challenge" #394

Hiya!

This week's challenge at "Use Your Stuff" = Spring

I decided to scrap a photo that is a sure sign, to me, that Spring is here:

Journaling: "One of the signs of Spring? Sees releases these babies! My favorite flavors, after rootbeer."

These are Strawberries and Cream and Oranges and Cream lollipops and I love them! 
The only other flavor of Sees lollipop I like better is the Root Beer which, BTW, is also Seasonal.

*Note: yes there is tape on my photo.
I was having some issues w/ my page and by the time I had completed it, the photo was coming up a bit but I didn't want to deal w/ the mess of glue so I just stuck rows of tape across it.
I may regret that some day, but not soon enough that it caused me to decide against it.

03/12/20 - Club 80s

Still trying to blog even when I don't "feel" it...
I'm still very much "feeling" Scrapbooking, just not blogging.


Here's a page I recently created:

"Club 80s"
12x12 Traditional

Journaling:
"Our first big outing of 2020 was to Club 80s for Dawn's Birthday. They also had a Linkin Park Tribute band! So Cool!"

BG paper is called "Tech Bubbles" and is from Reminisce:
Reminisce - Tech Bubble Collection - 12 x 12 Double Sided Paper - Glow Party

The 80s stickers are from Ella and Viv:

I think they made a perfect combo for this page!

I also used a couple of stickers from the Carte Bella "Circus" Collection and a Pocket Page Card from my stash.
Everything on this layout is a fairly recent purchase, so I had to throw that card in for good measure ::wink::

03/04/20 - "On This Day..." and Pumpkins

Hi,
Just wanted to drop off a couple of layouts really quick-like!


"Seriously Crappy Timing, Shutterfly"


12x12 Traditional Paper Layout


Cute photo, huh?
Well, this photo was sent to me, from Shutterfly via e-mail, 3 days after Spotty (my black dog) died!
Ugh, REALLY?!
Hence the title.
My other dog, Ivanna, passed approximately 3 years ago.

Journaling: "One of the photos from '4 years ago today' includes this one of me sleeping w/ both of my (now) deceased dogs. Really?! TBH, I actually had a small chuckle about the photo cuz, I mean, really, what are the odds?!"

I chose the "I love this photo" die cut because, despite the timing, I really do! And I chose the "going w/ the flow" sticker because that's what I decided to do, just go w/ seeing it and still loving it...despite the crappy timing!

For the following challenges:
- Scrap W/ Your Scraps (the heart PP pieces )
