Paper Issues Abroad Blog Hop!!

 At Paper Issues we are having a little blog hop to start our new theme which is "Abroad", in honour of Studio Calico's Abroad collection. Travel, travel, travel...I love this theme!! To celebrate this theme we are having a mini blog hop.  Sounds fun, hey!!
For this layout I used an old photo of my BFF and I celebrating our first night in Maui, in 1993.  Those were the carefree days of our youth,  Oh what fun we had! For this theme I created a layout using a map paper from Pink Paislee's Daily Junque collection.

 To create the sun rays I cut a triangle template and used moulding paste then applied colour spray to highlight the ray. For my title I used song lyrics from Fun's new song "We Are Young".

 I used lots of texture with the cardboard, stitching and plastic grid.

Now for the real fun Paper issues is having a GIVEAWAY to celebrate this fabulous theme!

This weekend I was away for a scrappy weekend with the girls!  I always come back with sore cheeks from all of the laughing we do and a few finished projects, yay!  I am definitely not one of those people who do 80 layouts in a weekend (not really my style) but I love what I get done and I enjoy being away from all responsibility for an entire weekend.  Thanks to my hubby!!
These are a few of the projects I worked on this weekend. 

@ 11 is a simple layout using photos of our family that were taken on November 11, 2011 at 11:11am.  I have been wanting to use this Bobunny paper for a long time and these photos were perfect, as the script on the paper talks about documenting everyday life.

I absolutely love this layout, it has to be my favourite layout of the whole weekend.  Again I used Bobunny paper, but a much newer line.  This photo of Miss Taylor was taken by my Maddie girl. She did a fabulous job and she did the impossible, got Taylor to smile for a photo.  Something I haven't been able to do for a long time.  Taylor hates having her picture taken, what a stinker!

And this layout is about Miss Taylor and how she won't stand still for a photo.  This is the typical photo I get of T these days, either blurred or partials because she is trying to avoid the camera.  I printed the photo on canvas photo paper.  The top photo lifts like a book and a plastic sleeve houses two more crazy pictures of Miss T, with journaling under that.

I also worked on some other projects that aren't complete yet, I am hoping to finish them soon and then I will post them. Thanks for stopping by and have a great week!
