Muuuahhhaaahaa Friday the 13th!

Hooray for Friday! That seems to be my theme this year. Try to survive the week without going crazy and Friday is like the breath of air that keeps me going :)

Friday ALSO means LOTUS PAPERIE time
Challenge #150 is to create a layout based off of this sketch:

Here is my interpretation of it:

An homage to the 80's. My layouts was spurred on by my sisters and I being dorky on Facebook and reminiscing about Roxette. I remembered that I had taken some pictures from my mom's house last year. Nothing better than pictures from 1983 right! I had on a killer Carebear dress that I LOVED. Sasha is rocking the super fly early 80's feathered hair and little Ginger, well just look how cute she was. I found some old Valentine's (POPPLES!!!) that my mom had stashed away and my pop bead bracelet. I love how those silly elements totally make the page.

I used some Cosmo Cricket paper from the November Scarlet Lime kit and a scrap of leftover Hambly transparency. A sheet of gunmetal grey Bazzill and Shimmerz Wed Wagon paint add to the splattery paint 80's vibe.

Check out what the Lotus Paperie design team did with the sketch. Some have followed the sketch super closely and other's had a more loose interpretation like I did.

And don't forget to come check out the 12 Days of Christmas Crop that is running now until the 23rd over at inspireME. Our team has worked insanely hard at putting together a killer crop with chats EACH day.
There is a little something for every one. So if you feel so inclined, come hang with us :)

Well that is all I have for now. Today is going to be spent showing the Staff at Fullerton IV just how much we appreciate them. Soup for every one!

What a fun and funky page, Dena! It just makes me smile so big remembering that time. Too funny!
And isn't the Webster's crop just rockin'? I want to do everything!!
