Happy scrapping!

I am back in full swing after my vacation. Back to life... back to 'work'.... back to everyday.... It is kinda of hectic again with kids camps... art camps... etc.. But I like it back home. Somehow a fine balance between longing for a break and back to the comfort of home. Do you feel that way? You want to go away for a bit and then you miss home. Hmm.......... And today it's a good day for my scrapping... finished 4 LOs in a day!!! Phew... I was happy....... YSS sponsored this challenge site "Scrap it with a song' last week and I didn't manage to participate because of my vacation. But I caught up on some lost time and did this Challenge #8 "Girls just wanna have fun". "Remembering the FUN" ..... photos from Phuket. My girls really can teach me a thing about fun in the pool. I am way too 'cool' for their brand of fun aka soaking in water. My idea of fun is to lounge in the chair... soaking in the sun and sipping cola. They got me IN! I mist some 'waves' in the background... can you spot it? And I chose to work with the blues and red from the Prima Strawberry Kisses Papers. Now, since I am with the challenge at Scrap it with a Song... I might as well try Challenge#9 since I love love this song "Could not ask for more" Check out the song there! "Could not ask for more"...... scrapping about my hubby. I could not ask for more... he is my soul mate... my friend, my encourager.... my cheerleader.... my support... my 'mind'... yes.. he reads it like an open book. Cut the Prima Strawberry kisses papers and distress it.... now I am loving more new distress ink colors. Punice Stone and Tumbled Glass.... I layered a songsheet (vintage music score)... a Prima canvas.... and tucked some flowers, chipboard around it. Guess where is the hidden journaling. I cut this chipboard into half and tucked it here.
Yes... you are right.. the journaling is on the right.. the row of flowers.. pull it out and a journaling sheet appears.
I want to thank YSS for providing these beautiful stash for me to work with.
Thanks for dropping by. Have a great day.
I am off to sleep and ready for some serious shopping tomorrow at my fave clothing store ... MANGO... they are having a sale tomorrow...... yay!!!
