Saturday Night

Hi you all :) This layout came about from LOAD prompt that happened on Mother's Day and so fitting for the layout I ended up doing about my Mom. Mom and I had a special friendship that I am very thankful for. She's been gone now almost 14 years and the past couple years I have finally been able to start scrapping about her. It's comforting to scrap about her too. So on with the project this is for Lasting Memories: Anything Goes challenge with Life Affirmations.
This layout came about from the LOAD prompt: Personal Favorite: What was your favorite album as a teen? Incorporate it into your layout with color and font inspired by the album.
This was one of my favorite albums as a teen:
So I had some fun creating the layout to try to have a similar look. Got out my square 1" punch and started punches lots of squares from scraps:
I found this cute sticker on one of my sticker sheets and thought is was perfect to go with the story behind the title and pictures of the layout.
So I went with Thickers for the title and I went with a grid style center to look like that large block they used for their photo on the album. Lots of 1" squares all around the layout :) I also fussy cut some stars and scattered them about the layout too. Guess it's been a good month for stars I had alot of variety of them in my stash.
 Mom and I went out dancing often on Saturday Nights.
 The journaling as I found out with posting the layout that I misspelled a word and also missed a word , now corrected on my layout. I used a PL card to put the journaling on. I used my current counterfeit kit for my layout plus lots of scraps in my stash.
Thanks Mom for being there for me for everything I needed in life. You were the one person that never left me down. I know it's not Mother's Day, but when I did the layout is was. Happy Mother's day Mom

  7. Great journaling about the special times you shared with your mom! And when I saw your page title, I immediately heard "S-A-T-U-R-D-A-Y Night!". I wasn't a big Bay City Rollers fan but I definitely remember that song.
