So Happy Together


I warned you there was about to be an avalanche of layouts with cute grandchildren and here is #2.  I bought my granddaughters Abby and Izzy matching Minions t-shirts.  I got some pictures of them wearing them and decided to use the purple and yellow color combo from the t-shirts for this fun layout.  I just basically went through my stash pulling out all the purple and yellow girlie stuff and moved them around on this page until I was happy with it.  At one point I was so frustrated with it that I walked away from it for a couple of days.  Have you ever done that?  Then last night, I picked it up again and it very quickly all fell into place.

I used this inspiring sketch from Paper Issues Sketchy Saturday:


The polka dot yellow doily and yellow letters are also from the March swag bag from Paper Issues.

I am also entering this page in these challenges:

Lasting Memories "So Happy Together" Challenge
and
Simon Says Stamp March Work It Wednesday -- the challenge here was to use your stamps -- old or new.  I used a brand new-to-me stamp from Unity of the bumblebees in the lower right hand corner. I am excited not only to ink up a new stamp but also to stamp on a layout.  I always tell myself that I want to do that more and this time I actually remembered!!
and
Rochelle Spears Tic Tac Toe Challenge 
(I went straight across the top row -- Stitching, Polka Dot Paper and Enamel Dots)


I had a lot of fun putting this page together.  I think I will pull a 2009 Disney picture out of my archives for my next page.  I want to use my new Simple Stories Disney themed Say Cheese II collection.  Stay Tuned!!
