Road trip!

Today I'm posting a layout for Red Carpet Studios challenge blog. This week we are featuring layouts inspired by the Griswald Christmas vacation.

Although my photo and layout are not nearly as funny as the Griswald's. But it was a Christmas vacation to Patriots Point in South Carolina.

It a really interesting part of our history and has some very different places to see . Oh, and if you have a fella in your life, it would be guy heaven!!

Punkin N Pie

Twas the night before Friday and all through the house,
not a creature was stirring not even a spouse.

The stockings were hung after washing with care
on the shower curtain to get some air.
The kitten was nestled all snug in our bed
with visions of yummy treats dancing in her head.

When out on the deck there arose such a clatter,
I slowly crawled off the  bed to see what was the matter.
From the window I could see in a flash
The noise was from a crash.

When what to my wonder and eyes did appear
But 5 magnificent pumpkins almost like spheres.
Why who would've believed the Great Pumpkin was real!

Linus has been telling us for years and years,
but no one would believe and it left him in tears.

But lo and behold on my deck there they were,
all orange and round and left there for her!
Oh, what should a girl do with a deck full of orange,
but pull out the spray paint and adorn the great beauties!

yes, that's a black one in the foreground

Time travel to Women's Right to vote USA

I am compelled to write a posting regarding women's right to vote!
Less than 100 years ago women in the USA weren't allowed to vote!
Freedom Rider, US Woman's Suffrage movement.  

Women’s suffrage at the state level was first granted by Wyoming in 1869. The most receptive region of the country to equal suffrage was the West. As women gained the right to vote in school and municipal elections, some state governments allowed them to vote in national elections. But, in general, women’s suffrage was denied in national elections until the beginning of the Roaring Twenties

Dirty little people

I don't really have anything to say about dirty little people, except maybe wasn't it a song way back when?
Scroll all the way to the end of this posting to see the song I was talking about.  Can't believe we really liked that song back when.  It's stupid!!

But, either way, did the blog posting title catch your attention?  If  so, comment and tell me what you thought the posting was about!  I'm in a giveaway kinda mood...I'll send one of  you lovely readers (randomly chosen) some little prezzie!

don't you love the paper I used?

Now that I have your attention, please stick around....
Red Carpet Studio Design Challenge is hosting another challenge this week.
It's a layout challenge, so grab a photo, put it together in a CAS fashion  and enter into the contest.  This week the winner will win a $25 gift certificate from The Paper Parade (durn I wish I could enter!)

 This is a clean and simple layout, I love the technique that is popular today to splatter paint...There's a trick to make it look random, but good at the same time.  I haven't quite got the hang of that yet.
 The little brown eyed girl, featured here is showing off her plate of food during our family reunion in 1998.  What I don't have a picture of and wish I did,  was later in the day, the little brown eyed girl and her cousin(let's call her the little dark haired girl) got in a fist fight.
that's right
first time I saw  my daughter stand up to someone and not back down.  Never did find out what that fight was about.  I think I'll run over to my little dark haired niece's facebook and ask her about.  Surely, now the truth can be told!
In the top left corner I used some clear, glittery stickers spelling EAT.
Because who doesn't like to eat?  Besides, we have proof I like to eat--we've talked about that before and my girlish figure.
Hope you'll join us at the Red Carpet Studio Design Challenge!
If I can't win that great prize, maybe you can.
Run, don't walk.
See you next time!!
