I Can't Believe I Wore That! for a PL Card challenge

Good Morning and today there are 2 posts to share with you :) First is for Sketches in Thyme Project Life Style, with a change up over at the blog my challenge day got bumped to the middle of the month :) Some great challenges sketches each week of the month so I'm good with any week for a design team project. I get to kick off the new week's sketch and this is my card for my layout from this week's sketch:
For some odd reason when I scanned the card it came up with these odd colors: the triangles in the washi tape is more of a golden yellow and the background paper is a brighter green. This title card is based on this sketch:
Fun way to create my title card for my layout.
My layout is based on yesterday's LOAD prompt (yep getting down to the wire to create this layout on time for my DT duty, it's been one of those type's of months so far) LOAD day 14: Time capsule is the theme for Saturday and the prompt is the same as my title :) through some of the suggestions there was one about has your fashion style changed? another about everyone has atleast one horror story (I come across a few while looking for pictures to use) But this one struck me when I saw the pants and what we call flooders back in the day. (I have seen this in style now!) But I saw the pants in the right picture first and then saw I wore the same pants in the left picture which I was a year younger in, so that created my story for the day!
I used the current sketch over at ScrapMuch? for my layout and just loved using the stripes of paper for the background:
This is definitely a keeper sketch for when I have lots of scraps to use up.
 My journaling talks of the pictures and wondering just what I was thinking to wear pants that didn't fit me.
 It definitely shows how much I grew in a year, but really this had to be uncomfortable I would think!
And what about that hat :) I was glad to make a story around this picture because looking at it alone I don't think I would have scrapped it, but this prompt created the perfect time to scrap it :) See how the yellow and the green of the title card really looks from the picture I took. One thing though, I still like to wear blue and gold. I used some of the SU candy dots from the Shabby Gone Wild kit and other bits and pieces from other older counterfeit kits too. 
Looking forward to seeing you creation over at Sketches in Thyme Project Life Style and this is the prize offered this month for May challenges: To celebrate NSD, one lucky participant will win this entire Happy Times kit!!!!! Wow!!!!
