Smilin' On Me

Okay, so I got this song in my head and I'm not even sure if they're the right words or what. But the other day these lyrics kept repeating in my head, "Blues skies, shinin' on me. Nothin' but blue skies...dah dah da-da dah"and my inner voice would trail off because I don't even know the rest of the song. ha! It all started though when I saw this picture of McClain, his blue eyes, shining back at me. I went with it and changed the words to the supposed lyrics to make my title.

SO, I give you "Blue eyes...Smilin' on me" LOL

To make this layout I used a combination of 2 different October Afternoon collections, 5&Dime and Rocket Age, from my accumulating scrap stash. I need to use my stash more often. It's so fun to re-live the joy that "older" collections bring with them. It's a "oh yeah, I remember this one" kind of feeling and I get all giddy again using them. Maybe I'm weird. Maybe I just like the fact that I actually USED my stash. Whatever the case, this layout brings a smile to my face. Hope it does for you too.

PS--I DID throw in a little bit of "new". That postal stripe washi tape is new to me and made by Freckled Fawn.

Off to the pool now. Going to eeek out the fun in what's left of summer!
