the agony of Defeat

Tuesday, November 6, 2012

I will pay for doing this layout.  My husband will most definitely
be up for kicking my bootay in cards next time we play!
But, it needed to be done...heh ;)

We played Gin Rummy before, but on our honeymoon, 
we played ALL the time (cards, that is)...
And I am not a competitive person...
I am a very competitive person, I can admit it...
Shawn has a very good sense of humor about it, thank goodness.
I had been on a pretty good winning streak, until recently...
Maybe it was all the smack talking that is coming back to teach me about karma.
Either way, I haven't been winning as much lately. 

This was a beautiful weekend in May, our 11th anniversary, when
we ditched our kiddos and had a staycation!  Sitting outside playing
cards and drinking nice and relaxing!  
 ( Could use another of those right about now, actually. )

This layout was done for the Color-Me-Scrappy Challenge #15:
The colors were awesome but they have also changed up their challenges
a bit to include another key to the challenge as well as just the colors, 
it could be a sketch, like this was, or a specific technique, etc.

It is a great new concept, and the colors were perfect for using my 
Scrapbook Circle October Kit, since my November Kit arrived yesterday 
and I am itching to get busy with it!  So much to little time.
But now, off to vote!
