World Travels - Ireland Busch Gardens

So now I am kicking myself for wasting most of today doing nothing. The last two layouts I did from our recent trip to Busch Gardens just flowed together so easily. Now that its Sunday evening, I know that I will not be able to do much more scrapping until Friday. :( That's a total bummer. And being Sunday evening I'm starting to think about work again and dreading going in tomorrow. More drama, more b.s., more crap that I just don't feel like dealing with anymore....oh and there's the work too!

This layout is a photo of me that John took standing by the gate entering Ireland in Busch Gardens. I used the sketch done by Liz Qualman which is the challenge this week at Stuck On You Sketches. I used a mish mosh of manufacturers to complete this! The background paper is glittery but the photo didn't pick that up...its by BoBunny. The circle with the print is Basic Grey Basics, the circle that the photo is mated on is Basic Grey Capella but it was too pastel-y so I gave it a spray with Coffee Shop Glimmer Mist and got the look I was hoping for! The flowers and birds are by K&Co. as is the pearl brad in the center of the larger flower. The letters are both Basic Grey and Pink Paislee. The dot cardstock is from Oriental Trading and the ball trim I have no idea! I really like the way this layout came out!

Awesome job!


Beautiful layout, love those flowers and you did such an amazing job with this sketch.. Love it


I really like this! The papers are awesome!
I wouldn't want to go to work either...I stay home w/ my kids, given there are days when I don't want to do that either but at least I don't have to get dressed if I don't want to! LOL!!!!!
Thanks for joining in!!!!!


I know what you're going through because I'm going through the very same thing.. Except you throw in the 3 little grand babies, which by the way, I wouldn't give up one single minute with them.. But it really cuts down your scrapping time... Okay, I'm off of my soapbox.... for now anyway!!lol
Your layout is beautiful and the papers are gorgeous!! Love the font you used in your title and that ribbon trim is fabulous!!!
