Lasting Memories Ch #63 - Use SEPIA... inpsired by Frosted Designs Sketch 27 - "

Hello Hello and Hello!  Well here in the U.S... .our "Daylight Savings Time" has ended... so we all gained another HOUR on the clock last night.  How did you all use your extra hour??  I watched a movie with Hubby and slept a bit longer.  Heaven!!
I'm excited to share with you my layout for the start of the next LASTING MEMORIES LAYOUT Challenge #63.  Our challenge this week is to use SEPIA photos and Earth Tone colors!!  I was very excited to do this challenge... for Sepia photos is just not something I would automatically think up.  Thus the "Challenge" got my wheels turning and I am happy with the result.
This is my Hubby and I on one of our "Weekend Get-Aways" in March of 2010. (Although I accidentally dated it 2009 on my layout... oops.)   We have some silly photos from our long walk/hike on this beach that day... but I used a few more subtle/serious ones.  It's kind of funny how adults can act when the kids are not hanging at your feet.  It reminds us that we are still kids too!  My layout is using mostly the "Beau Chateux" collection from Stampin' Up.  I love the color combo.  I am also very proud of my "Cluster" in the bottom right corner.  I don't do clusters very often and was finding all kinds of fun things to add!!
I was also very inspired by this week's sketch from Frosted Designs!  So thus entering in their challenge.   


I hope you get excited as I was to show us what you can do with some SEPIA photos & some earth tones!!  Link up your entry at Lasting Memories Ch#63 by Saturday, November 12th @ 9pm EST.  You have a chance to be "FEATURED" throughout the week or a part of our "TOP 3."  I hope you will find some time to join us!!

Thank so much for stopping by!!

Love the blue with the Sepia. Your cluster is so cute and I love the 24 7 tag. That is a great sketch with great pictures and you did a beautiful job with it.
