This layout, about my DH & his trial with a root beer float, encompasses multiple challenges! First, it will be entered into the Stuck?! Sketches July 15, 2017 Challenge! The challenge for the second half of July was to use the sketch (last photo in this post) designed by Laura Whitaker. For my layout I decided to rotate the design counter-clockwise, which I thought worked better for me, especially since I have a longer title. This layout is also going to be entered in the July Sewing Challenge, July 5 Ingredients + Challenge, July Music Inspiration Challenge, July Hoarders Challenge, and the July Foodies Challenge here at scrapbook.com. Whew! That's a lot of Challenges for one little ol' layout!
-Music Inspiration: I was tasked with finding inspiration for my layout using a song chosen for me. My song was "You Make Me Wanna" by Usher. I'll tell the truth, I never listened to the song, I read the lyrics over on A to Z Lyrics and I knew I'd never be able to handle actually hearing it! It's just nowhere near the type of music I listen to (and I listen to a lot of different types)! When I first thought up what photo I wanted to use, I was originally going to have my title based off the title of the song, and was going to have it be "You Make Me Wanna Scream," but there is an Ozzy song ("Let Me Hear You Scream") that has a very similar line. I just couldn't connect Ozzy & Usher in my mind!! So then I decided to incorporate "This is what you do," which is a line found over and over in the song! And I actually had "This is what you do, Brain Freeze" on the layout...but it just didn't look right! I came across the "Oh What Fun" banner, laid it on the layout, and decided the title was going to be "Oh What Fun You Do, Brain Freeze," because now it was a sarcastic title, and I speak fluent sarcasm! Whew, all that to use two words from the song!
-5 Ingredients+ Challenge:
--Yellow: ...some, in a few spots :P
--Button(s): I got one on there!
--Smile: #smile under the photo!
--Circle(s): Hidden about as well as the yellow...
--Border: Along the top of the "main" area, and a little piece of scalloped at the bottom.
-Sewing Challenge: had a twist of using red, white, and/or blue thread, I used blue and white (had to use at least two for the twist). -Foodie Challenge is to do a layout involving food. Root Beer Floats are food, right?
-Hoarders Challenge: I believe everything I used is at least a year old!
The journaling reads:
"We were having rood beer floats one evening & I looked over & saw this face! I said it was too bad I didn't have my camera ready, and decided to get prepared in case it happened again! ...It did, on the next bite! I asked if you were doing it on purpose so I could get a photo, and you said 'NO!!'"
