Date Night Shenanigans / My Scraps & More

Happy Friday!  I hope you're ready for a fun weekend :)  Today I'm sharing a layout I created for yesterday's Throwback Thursday challenge over at My Scraps & More.  I pulled out some October Afternoon Daily Flash and Midway for most of this.  The background is Amerian Crafts Plus One.  The challenge was to use product at least a year old, use at least one speech bubble and use at least one camera on a layout.  The pictures are of my husband and me being goofy in the car on a date night.  The perfect time for crazy selfies...haha :D  Sometimes I just can't resist being a cheeseball...

I first decided on which patterned papers I was going to cut into strips. I wanted to add a bit of background color, so I used gelatos, spray inks and mist to add the messy splatters.  I added some machine stitching and then played around with the embellishments before deciding on homes for each of them.

I cut "shenanigans" in white cardstock and then used distress ink to color it.  I wasn't sure in the beginning what color I might want it.  And the font is called Olympic case you wanted to find it :)  I mixed in some Thickers with the Midway alphas for the title.

I love all the little die cut embellishments in this line...they all were perfect for this page.  Just the right shape and colors.  I love this red up next to the inks and that blue piece.

Love adding tangled adds wonderful texture and interest.  Aren't these speech bubbles so cute?

That's white tissue paper behind my's a great substitution for vellum if you don't have any.  I just love all these colors together.  I can't get enough of the brights!

I used some Lemon Zest Dylusions and some plastic packaging to get this yellow here.  I've been wanting to use that cute camera for a long time, and this was perfect for it.

I did create a process video for this it is if you're interested in watching how I made this from start to finish.  

Thanks for stopping by, and have a great day!
