Let's Scrap - Resolution #8 & #9 LO Complete

Afternoon Friends! Thanks for stopping by. I've been ill all day, with what I hope is food poisoning; but this is my day off so I have been adding finishing touches to another layout inbetween naps and well never mind (TMI)  My layout is about Old Faithful in Calistoga, CA. 

Here is the LS sketch my layout is based on 2-24-10:

And here is my layout:

The left side of my layout is for Bev's Resolution #8 - Using black and white photos, blue and yellow embellishments and a Let’s Scrap sketch create a layout.  The right side was for Mandy's Resolution #9 - Laughter is the Best Medicine. So your challenge is to scrap something that makes you smile or laugh and make sure to add some journalling so that you can look at this years from now and reminisce what was making you smile or crack up.

This page is about how excited I was to learn the "Old Faithful" was only a couple hour drive to Sonoma.  We started out early to beat the "People".  Imagine our surprise when we arrived that this was just one of a handful of "old faithful's" in the world that erupt at regular intervals and was piddly in comparison to the real thing. They also had fainting goats and llamas so we were confused as to if this was a zoo or a natural phenomonen.  Of course the REAL Old Faithful is in Wyoming, which I really should have known!  I will definitely never live this one down! 

Materials Used: circle templates - Creative Memories; papers - My Mind's Eye & unknown; gems - IRock; flowers - unknown; ribbon - CTMH and unknown rick rak; ink - CTMH  Lagoon; blue embellishments - CTMH Mini-medley Lagoon.

Thanks so much for visiting! Have a wonderful weekend!
