#100-5 Inspired by heading to 100 years old

I am determined to have a go at each of the wonderful prompts offered by our marvellous Guest Designers during our Prompt 100 celebrations and the first one that "got" me was Sherrie's idea of heading to 100 years old. It may take me a while to get through them all, but I promise that I will share as and when I get to them. And I recommend you have a go too - they are all so very inspiring.

I hadn't planned to scrap anything but I had printed out this blurred, out of focus photo during the week with the intention of possibly sending it to my Granny because I just think it's a fun, happy photo. It was sitting on my desk and in a moment of sentimentality (and I'm missing him loads right now) , I suddenly knew what I wanted to do with it.

Yes, the photo is bad - but it's perfect in how it sums up the truth of us.

I love how the layout turned out. It didn't need much journalling because the title says it all. Just a few layered papers and elements from my Counterfeit Kit Challenge June kit, Personality, and a few extra colourful sequins were all it needed.

Sometimes, you don't need to make things complicated to say what needs to be said. Maybe that should be my lesson today for LSNED! A double win perhaps.

So, how does heading to 100 years of age resonate with you? Make sure you share over at our Flickr gallery (here) with the prompt WM#100 and for this prompt in particular, WM#100-5.


  1. This really is the sweetest photo, and what a perfect title that really does say it all... I may scraplift it. You have a wonderful way of saying even more with the details on your pages, like the potty people & even the romantic sparkle of the sequins. Made me smile & sigh!

  2. Fun layout! I love how you added the flair button, I have quite a few Christmas ones from Jcpenny's last year. I'm going to have to pull them out and use them. Thanks for the inspiration.

  3. Very sweet layout & when you have that shared love you do want to live until a hundred.

  4. I LOVE this!!! So pretty and I love those colors. Great inspiration!
