LMCB # 93 "Color Me Happy" with a Blogaversary Blog Hop!! (12 x 12 Layout - Priest Lake)



We have a celebration going on this week!! It's Lasting Memories 2nd Blogaversary!!! To celebrate, some of us are showcasing our layouts with a mini blog hop. Along the way there could be candy, so be sure to read each post! You may be asked to leave a comment, you may be asked to do something a little different, you just never know! Our challenge is an easy one .. 
an inspirational photo/color challenge (isn't this gorgeous?) 


So lets get this party started!! If you're arrived here from KAREN - Karen's Creative Outletyou're on the right track! If you're just popping by, be sure to start at Karen's Blog so you don't miss a thing!!! Here's my layout for this weeks challenge.

A close-up of my CLUSTER that I loved puting together.  I used everything from Stamped Flowers that I cut out, to paper flowers to stickers to felt to buttons to brads to thread.  WHEW!  Lots of fun going through my stash for this!!

As you can see... my inspiration was from the fun White Argyle pattern, the Aqua colors and the colors of the flowers.  I also love the country, outdoorsy feel of the photo.  It was perfect for our Family Photo from our Family Vacation last summer.  I am also joining the gals over at 
Frosted Designs Sketch Along Tuesday # 43.  Here is their sketch I followed...

AND... what's a Blog Hop without some Blog Candy!!!??
Leave a comment & Become a Follower (or tell me you already are) and you can get these fun Floral Embellies sent to you!!  This is open to New Friends, Old Friends and all of my DT Friends!!
I will announce the winner next Sunday with the new Lasting Memories Challenge!!

Once you've finished hopping to all the DT blogs, you will end at Lasting Memories where Karen has decided to give one lucky entry a $25 gift certificate for Close To My Heart!!! 








"This is open to everyone, including my DT and winner will be chosen by random.org. Help celebrate this milestone with us!!"

Here's an awesome sketch from Tanya Leigh Designs if you need a little help!!
