Challenge YOUrself #15 - Color Challenge

Welcome my Scrappy Friends!  
Can you believe we are already through the first week of February 2015!!  Time sure does fly!  

This months Challenge over at 
The Challenge YOUrself Blog! 
 is another FUN one!  
 It's all about YOU and COLOR!!

Here is your challenge for February:
Challenge #15: Color Challenge  {  I am.......}
Use the affirmation:  
"I am________ " in your title or journalling with this color combo.

So - what to do, what to do?  

I was looking through my phone and the colors on a few photos that we took on New Year's Eve jumped out at me. 
I decided to use them in the layout below, as I think they fit this color pallet quite well, 
don't you?

And, as far as filling in the blank for "I am_____"  the photo immediately made me think of "SILLY" - Because what FUN is Life, if we can't be "SILLY" sometimes!

So after pulling out some papers and embellishments from my stash - here is the layout that I came up with:

Like I mentioned above, the photo was taken on New Year's Eve,. It was while we were away on a vacation with my parents in Myrtle Beach.  We love visiting there between Christmas and New Years.  While it certainly is not beach weather there during that week, the ocean is still beautiful to look at, and most of the restaurants, shops and mini-golf places are open.  We really enjoy just relaxing, spending time together, watching the dolphin's swim by our balcony, and playing games together in the evening.

Here are a few close ups of all the "STUFF" I used on this layout:

Sequins, Brads, Rub-ons, Ribbon... Oh My!

I don't know about you -but I think these "Wood Sprinkles" from Jillibean Soup are Super HOTNESS! - Yes, I did buy one of every color pack they offer!!

Love my #Selfie Stamp
