A little time, a little paper and a little prompt...

Thanks to Apron Strings Smaller than a Breadbox kit and Scrapping Everyday Miracles, I have a layout. I really liked playing with Jillibean Soup's new line Watermelon Gazpacho. I found myself using more of the background side of the paper. Lots of fun, bright colors and delightful polka dots, gingham and stripes. Ah, my favorite combinations.

Scrapping Everyday Miracles provided a very playful challenge this month. The prompt was "you have to laugh." Essentially it was about the things in our life that make us laugh, things we might otherwise take for granted. The stipulations were to use that theme and add a funny picture and a recycled element. So, I pulled out a fun sepia toned photo of Aaron that I have wanted to use for some time now. He is sitting in the Goofy car at Disneyland and just grinning. This layout prompt really allowed me to journal about Aaron's quirky sense of humor and how his "goofy"ness really makes me laugh. The recycled element is the ribbon, I pulled it from projects that folks have sent me. It was nice to reuse and repurpose. This was a great challenge and I really enjoyed using up some fun Apron Strings stash. Hope that you enjoy!
