I Love: Dad, Myrtle and this Layout

I love it when you see something (a card, a layout, a painting... anything really) and just get so inspired you want to do your take on it right away.  Unfortunately I couldn't because I was on holiday.  So I made notes of what was in my head and stored them away for when I got home - and then this happened:

I'd seen Corrie Jones video on youtube (watch) and loved it.  It's from a set of videos giving tips and pushing you creatively to try new things.  The layout, for me, was amazing and in need of lifting!  (Not an uncommon thought when I see Corrie's layouts!!)  I wanted to do it 'male' though and this photo of Dad and Myrtle on holiday seemed the perfect fit.

I used goodies from paperchase, washi tape, a random pin thing, my trusty stapler, and a sprinkling of sparkly brads and stickers.

Also continuing my drive to use the rubbish that I keep because I will use it one day I added a bit of red wire that I had kept.  (Why on earth did I keep it??!)

I haven't branched out to gelatos yet (do I want them?  do I need them?) so I used pens, pencils and inks that I did have for the heart in the background.  I don't use my pencils on my layouts - it works so I need to try and incorporate them more often.

I'm really pleased with this layout, it makes me smile :)
