If You Obey All the Rules You Miss All the Fun!

I must have been abducted by aliens . . . for those of you who are just beginning to know me and those who know me from quilting, there are a few things that Lynne DOES NOT DO --- first, pastels - what are you talking about, they don't exist, the brighter the better and then the biggest faux paux is I color outside the lines (Or some have said, think outside the liter box)!!!! But, I guess there is a first for everything and you are the witnesses to this!!!! When, I was just browsing around I found a new blog that I haven't seen before (can you imagine that!) and they are having a layout challenge - ok, get up off the floor and get over the shock! I thought, I can do this (will wonders ever cease?) and this is my very first lay-out let alone following directions!!!!!!

On Facebook, I had gotten a come check me out from The Scrapholic and I checked out her blog and loved it!!! and that is where I found the layout challenge. I know, I'm still in shock too especially when I said I can do this!!!!

Without further adieu may I present my layout card challenge!!!

Yes, there are pastels and shocking even more-sew is that I didn't use A Child's Year to cut my card but my everyday paper cutter!!! Ok, I didn't want to throw you off too much, I did use the cartridge for the 2 girls holding hands and surprise - they are pastel too!!!!

The stamps were appropriate and basically what dictated the card (I guess you could say the card spoke to me) --- on the front is "we do not remember days . . . we remember moments" and my apologies to the author as even with reading glasses, I cannot give credit where credit is due.

On the inside is quotes from both Victor Borge (who my parents loved and adored, they even on lp's with him!) "Laughter is the shortest distance between two people" and another great is Katherine Hepburn "If you obey all the rules you miss all the fun"

Now, that is what I call words to live by!!!!

Well, stop on over at The Scrapoholic to check out the other challenges or participate in this one or better vote/like mine! If you decide to participate in this challenge, be sure to let me know and I can post your challenge too!

I hope I haven't floored or shocked too many!

God Bless
Hugs and Love
