Guilin Merge!

Scrappy Monday!  Today's scrapbook layout is dedicated to my good friends Missy and Bennet, and the inception of a very long-running joke.

See the original pics here.  This was from our trip to China in 2010; we ate dinner at a McDonald's and my hubs accidentally grabbed Bennet's drink and soon thereafter came down with his cold.  So Bennet immediately christened it "The Merge" and it's been a joke ever since.  How about a closeup of those golden arches:

Why yes, that *is* skull and crossbones paper!  I found it in my stash and thought it was too funny to resist, especially since it was in exactly the color I needed.  Anyway, to do the golden arches for my title, I found a .jpg of them online (thank you Google), printed them out, and then adhered it to my Summer Sun cardstock with removable adhesive.  Then I just snipped them out, peeled off the printer paper and voila!  Golden arches.

I had fun playing around with all the space on this layout; it's not often that I use just four pictures on a layout.  I'm not 100% sure I like my circle accents, the layout needed something but some of those look like fried eggs ;p  But it's done now and I do adore the skull paper :D

There's my color palette:  Riding Hood Red, Summer Sun, Night of Navy, and Whisper White.  Pretty simple Superman-esque colors, but you can't go wrong with a primary color triad.

I'm supposed to Skype with Missy this morning, so I'll make sure that she sees this.  I know she'll get a kick out of it.  HI MISSY!!!

This made me laugh on SCS, and the close up of the skull and crossbones you share here makes it even more funny! :)
