Just Laugh

Welcome to the Studio!

Well, I said in an earlier post that I was a layout-making fool this past week.  Here's another one I finished the other day.  I've had this handful of pictures that I didn't know what to do with.  It's photos of my Mom and I at the Georgia Renaissance Festival a few years ago doing our usual goofing off, joking around, and constantly smiling and laughing.  That's us.  We get along like two kids and we're always picking on each other and laughing our butts off.  Plus, it's great when you get to "that age" where your mom can't/won't ground you anymore;)  Or at least if she does ground me, I'll get sent to our scraproom...oh, no!  That's like sending a little kid to Disney;)

I used Basic Grey  Lemonade that I got from the clearance rack at Hobby Lobby.  What can I say?  I'm a paper hoarder in every sense of the term and a bargain hunter to boot.  How can you turn down an entire pack of BG for $6.83?  I stamped "Just" on the little flower tags and tied them to some puffy pink tulle.  The "Laugh" banner is attached together with pink ricrac.  It's a really cute, kinda silly layout just like me & mom.

Also, while I was trying to figure out what the heck to do with this pictures, I found a sketch challenge blog and it just so happened the sketch was perfect my pics!

And now I'm stuck like glue to Stuck On U Sketches!  They have some fantastic sketches and an awesome design team.  It's amazing how many different ways this sketch can be translated.  This is my first time playing along with them over at Stuck On U, but it won't be my last.
