Rocking the New Year

Scrappy Monday, y'all!  Actually, this week is going to be Spring Break Scrap Week, because hubs and I are in sunny California to spend the week at Disneyland.  : D  So let's get this week off to a rocking good start!

These pictures are from New Year's Eve 2013, see them here. The page base kinda looks black in that picture, but trust me, it's Elegant Eggplant.  I picked out the long-retired Holiday Lounge DSP for these pictures and I loooooooove it!

Closeup of my title, the Retro Alphabet.  For some reason my Taken with Teal ink pad is some kind of dusty not-really-teal color, so I used a marker to ink up the stamps instead to match the paper.  And I interspersed a few Hello Honey letters in there just for funsies.

And there's my guitar--you can just barely see some gray splatter dots on the Sahara Sand harlequin, probably should have done those a little bit darker.

Today's rockin' color combo is Elegant Eggplant (not black!), Taken with Teal, Hello Honey, Sahara Sand, Strawberry Slush, Basic Gray, and Whisper White.  But when I finished the layout, I had one photo left over, so I used it for another project:

D'awww.  As it happens I finished up the layout (and made the card) on hubs' birthday, so that's when I gave it to him.  Is it weird to give someone a card with a picture of themselves on it?
