hippity hop blog hop!!!

{there you go}

Two sassy gals at Sassy Lil' Sketches have a blog hop going on - with 4 other fun blogs, this week-end.

You start at Sassy Lil' Sketches, move to Scrap Fit, Crop Suey, Scrap Tiffany and finally the Cuttlebug Spot. It's a recipe challenge - and they have all contributed to making a recipe for a card or a lay-out.

So fun!!!
I chose these pics of the hubs from our September vacation.
I love it when he makes me laugh
(and I always say that's why I married him - because he could always make me laugh.) forward 26 years. Yeah, I think it's a long time too. ;)
I love the song "Stuck Like Glue" by Sugarland. It hits a nerve with me...
hence the lay-out's title & journaling that are part of this song's lyrics.
"Stuck Like Glue"
Mmmm better...mmm better...
Absolutely no one that knows me better
No one that can make me feel sooo goooood
How did we stay so long together?
When everybody everybody said we never would
And just when I I start to think they're right
That love has died...

There you go making my heart beat again
Heart beat again
Heart beat again
There you go making me feel like a kid
Won't you do it and do it one time?
There you go pulling me right back in
Right back in
Right back in
And I know-oo I'm never letting this go-ooo

I'm stuck on you
Whutooo whutooo
Stuck like glue
You and me baby we're stuck like glue
Whutooo whutooo
Stuck like glue
You and me baby were stuck like glue

just in case you wanna give it a listen ~

Sassy Lil' Sketches started us off with the sketch.
Scrap Fit added "use 3 of the same things". I used 3 jenni bowlin journaling spots.
Crop Suey added "paint, ink or mist" - I used MM paint, ink & glossy accents on my BG chip title letters.
Scrap Tiffany added "lace" - I used a tiny bit of eyelet.
Cuttlebug Spot added "some embossing/texture" - I used Coredinations embossed cs.
This was my first time stitching a banner. I found a banner pattern on-line - shrunk it - and it was then so easy to put together! I pop-dotted some of the pennants & used brown jute to string them.

Thanks to Sassy Lil' Sketches!

What a fantastic layout Patti. I love how sweet you talk about your hubby....have have always done that ever since I met you.

Also, I love that song by Sugarland. I saw them sing it at the CMAs and it was great. Her rap was awesome....lave the twang in her voice.
