Opportunities!


It's a beautiful day....there are so many opportunities for fun and adventure, but he says one thing and she says another!

Yeah, sort of the story of many married couples!  ;)  Kelly and I seem to work it all out and we both make time to enjoy our hobbies together, alone and with friends/family.  It really doesn't matter if we go to a car or horse show, it's a beautiful day when we're together!

I decided to put this layout in my Wildwood Crush Book.

This book is a great opportunity to document just for me!  It's full of pictures I love, experiments with inks and mediums, and messy imperfections.  It's an opportunity to do what I want since it's a book for me.  You can see other pages I have done here,  here and here.

I really enjoy working in My Crush Books.  The books come in different themes with patterned pages you can fill with pictures, memorabilia, or ephemera.  They can also be used as art journals; the pages are thick and will take several different mediums.  If you've ever been interested in obtaining one, this is the time!  I mention this because the Crush Books are on the retiring items page at CTMH.  You might want to check out that page; they are retiring several colors, stamps and paper lines!

I'm sending my layout off to the following challenges:

Path of Positivity:  Theme: Opportunity  Always an opportunity for a song and a Beautiful Day!
Heart 2 Heart:  Ticket to Ride ~~ But will it be in a car, or on a horse, or maybe a tractor?
Mixed Media Mojo:  Anything Goes - Mixed media / art journaling
613 Avenue Create:  Anything Goes
Scrap It With A Song:  Beautiful Sunday  I was inspired by the lyrics; I grew up with this happy song!

Beautiful Sunday

Sunday morning, up with the lark
I think I'll take a walk in the park
Hey, hey, hey, it's a beautiful day
I've got someone waiting for me
And when I see her I know that she'll say
Hey, hey, hey, what a beautiful day

Hi, hi, hi, beautiful Sunday
This is my, my, my, beautiful day
When you said, said, said, said that you loved me
Oh my, my, my, it's a beautiful day

Birds are singing, you by my side
Lets take a car and go for a ride
Hey, hey, hey, it's a beautiful day
We'll drive on and follow the sun
Making Sunday go on and on
Hey, hey, hey, it's a beautiful day

Hi, hi, hi, beautiful Sunday
This is my, my, my, beautiful day
When you said, said, said, said that you loved me
Oh my, my, my, it's a beautiful day

Hi, hi, hi, beautiful Sunday
This is my, my, my, beautiful day
When you said, said, said, said that you loved me
Oh my, my, my, it's a beautiful day

Hi, hi, hi, beautiful Sunday
This is my, my, my, beautiful day
When you said, said, said, said that you loved me
Oh my, my, my, it's a beautiful day

  10. Another great page layout. Love the poem and how you incorporated it's a beautiful day in your scrapbook page for the 9 to 5 challenge. Also your' grand-daughter's card submission was very grown up for a 7 year old...it's apparent you are very proud of her in all your pages.
