Lasting Memories a Sunburst: Layout Hello Sunshine 2012

Good morning :) We had a busy day yesterday hitting some local yard sales (I found a great buy in a wooden CD tower I want to convert for my inks, now to figure out how :) Also the household chores laundry, vacuuming and such. To finish off the day we enjoyed a salad outside on the back deck area while the steaks were cooking on the grill. After providing meals (our legs) to the outside bugs we decided to eat the steak and corn on the cob in the house. Looking so forward to getting the back area under roof so we can enjoy sitting outside at night. Local news is the area is preparing to have LL teams in from around the world for the Little League Series here in our area. Been watching a team from PA and rooting them on to be in it, we'll see later today if they make it. So that's about it for yesterday, now on to today:
Today is Sunday and that is a new weekly challenge over at Lasting Memories
LM #255 
 Use a Sunburst or Starburst on your layout.
 I chose to do the Sunburst for my challenge. I used my cameo to cut out the background pieces for my layout, including the photo mats. It's was one of those scrapbook page kit files from the silhouette store. This is what I did with it:
This layout is of Brad, Katherine and Zachy in 2012, different days but the same month and year. Brad and Katherine having a playful photo while spending the day together on their Anniversary. The photo of Zachary was posted on facebook and I also wrote in the caption from the photo from Katherine and my response. 
 Silly selfie from these 2 :) Love that
 Our Mister Tough Guy! Zachary enjoying one of his rides :) plus the journaling block.. I had fun using the other side of the blue diamond paper for the border strip that I had punched with the eksuccess Argyle punch.
This part of the layout has the title work that came with that cutting file. I used wink of stella to glitter up the sunshine cut. The wood and pink glasses both came from my current counterfeit kit as did the yellow polka dot and the navy hello paper, the wood veneers and the washi tape. The blue diamond came from last months. The stamp set has been sitting on my desk waiting to be used so this was the perfect time to do that a CTMH stamp of the month: My Sunshine and I used their Goldrush ink too. The heart paperclip is from SU I'm thinking I found it in a box. It was fun to get into some old pictures of the crew :) still lots to scrap in that box yet :) Thanks for stopping by today and I hope to see your creativeness linked up to Lasting Memories this month's challenges.
