Always Laugh With Me - A New Layout!!! (No...seriously...for reals...)

I ACTUALLY did a scrapbook page! It's been so LONG!!!! It feels good. I'm a happy girl. I decided to jump in at the last minute for the Sketchy Thursday challenge for this week since I loved the sketch AND I had some new paper I wanted to play with!

This is the sketch and I stuck pretty darned close to it.  I really love it and it worked wonderfully for my photo and the papers and accents I wanted to use!

All papers and die cuts are My Minds Eye, the Pearls are The Paper Source, rubons are Making Memories (wicked crazy old school, actually!), the photo corners and the glitter are Martha Stewart, the Liquid Glass is Close To My Heart, the letters were cut with the Cricut Plantin Schoolbook Cartridge, and the fiber is from my stash...in other words...I have no clue.  Just say'n.

Always Laugh With Me

Embellished Die Cut for Always Laugh With Me

It is a little hard to see in the photo, but I covered the die cut with liquid glass and then sprinkled some clear glitter onto it after adding the pearls to the center.

Photo for Always Laugh With Me

This is actually an 'outtake' photo from a camera timer shoot we did in Boston one day when we were just wandering around.  It was SO much fun!!! 

Well, my clock is currently reading around 9:21pm and this challenge is due at 10pm, so I figure I could stick around and chat for awhile longer seeing as I've got plenty of time, but.....

....oh, wait.  HA! 

Well, you know what they say...."There's NO minute like LAST minute, there's NO minute, I know....."  (Oh, maybe that song says something entirely different.  Oh, well.  I tried!  Anyway...have a great night and I will see you all tomorrow!
