Go See Do - Lasting Memories Layout Challenges DT Reveal

Happy Sunday everyone, we finally got some much needed rain overnight. It can stop now as we have a family BBQ planned and it will put a damper on things. Anyway it is time for the newest Lasting Memories Layout Challenges Design Team Reveal. For the month of June the theme is: ALL ABOUT ME and today's challenge is - Anything Goes as long as it has something to do with you!

Here is my layout....

This photo was taken last July on the day we went to the movies to see the new Minion movie. We stopped at a fast food restaurant on the way to grab lunch and low and behold, they were all about Minions too!!! So the part about me that I would like to share today is that I LOVE being a Nana and we love Minions!!!

Here are some closeups....

I cut the tags with a Cuddlebug folder. The little Minion guy I purchased at Scrapfest from one of the vendors. I was a little disappointed when I opened up the package of four and there were no face parts. So I thought about it and created my own. I used some grey washi tape from my stash and cut it to size, then I found the appropriate size of brads, added a punch out circle and a little piece of bling and a smile and voila....Minions!!! I think they are adorable and a great buy at $1 for 4 of them.

I used my favourite WeR Memory Keepers Sew Stamper and created the circle of hearts and XOXO in the background.

The title I purchased from another vendor at Scrapfest. I added American Crafts twine, some Fancy Pants puffy stickers to the EK Success Minion paper.

Now be sure to stop by the Lasting Memories Blog and check out the rest of the design teams creations and then get busy and create your own by the end of June and link it up for a chance at a wonderful prize.
