It's a Sunshiney day at Triple Ts

Time for another challenge at Triplicate Trials Tuesday. This was my 2nd chance to design a challenge here, so much fun! It's a 3-part challenge, here's what you have to do:

And here's what I came up with:

One of my favorite things about participating in challenges is the way it pushes you out of your comfort zone. My own personal comfort zone is blue, kraft and red, definitely NOT black, grey and yellow...so just choosing papers and embellies was tricky for me! Then came tricky part #2- I didn't have any summertime pics printed yet, so I just decided I would "make it work" with the last day of school pics and focus on what we were all thinking on that morning, so excited for summer to start!!

Few fun things to note: I drew in the frame with a white gel pen on the black CS, and I distressed my grey CS with a sanding block to reveal the white core. My 3 yellow ribbons were all from the scrap bin, and none were long enough to go across the entire LO. To solve this problem, I trimmed about 1 1/2" off each piece and tucked just behind the photo. The rest of the 6ish inches I had left was tucked on the other side of the photo mat, and you have the illusion that it spans the whole way across!

The colors weren't what I would normally use, and the pic wasn't neccesarily a "sunshine" photo, but as I worked on posting the layout on my blog I decided that the end result, while unexepected, was good. Then...I looked closely at the photo...how silly of me. I never even noticed that my kiddos were wearing their BLACK and YELLOW Boston Bruins Tshirts that day (they had just won the Stanley Cup)...perhaps this was all "meant to be"?!?! =) T
