My long weekend started when I left the office at 5:15pm today!! I don't have to be back at work until TUESDAY! Yippeee!!! While I was physcially at work today (mentally I was already on the beach) I was on the ACOT Message Board and was checking out the July challenges. One of them was to create a Red, White and Blue layout that was NOT a Fourth of July layout. I immediately thought of these photos from 2008 when we went to Historic Smithville to see the Virginia Company K Encampment and Civil War Reenactment. They were PERFECT for the theme! I decided to use the Sketches In Thyme weekly sketch and because of the distressing on the papers, it also qualifies for Denise's challenge over at Pages In Time. Now I KNOW there was one more challenge I was entering this into but for the life of me I can't remember what it is. I know it was to use red, blue and another neutral other than white which is why I went with the Kraft background. So if you know what challenge I am missing, let me know!! And to top it off, Frosted Designs posted their new challenge today....Red, White, And Blue, Stars and Stripes! WooHoo!! Love when I can combine so many challenges!
I used a mix of papers for this one. Most of it is Pink Paislee Starlight and some We R Memory Keepers Old Glory. Letters are Pink Paislee. Tickets are by House of 3. Bling by Jolees. Chipboard stars by Melody Ross sprayed with Moonlight Glimmer Mist.
Unfortunately my plans to scrap all night are fading. I'm tired!! When I got home from work John suggested going to the movies. We had wanted to see Iron Man 2 but waited to long and its not in the theatres here anymore so we saw Grown Ups instead. GREAT movie! Adam Sandler is a comical genius. We LAUGHED, and LAUGHED!! Really a good, funny movie with a great cast!
I am off tomorrow and John is working so you know what that means!! Scrappy day ahead!!
