Color me Happy Take 2

Okay so this is the second attempt at this post. 
I'm not good with HTML code and my first post didn't go through. 
So here it is

We have a celebration going on this week!! It's Lasting Memories 2nd Blogaversary!!! To celebrate, some of us are showcasing our layouts this week with a mini blog hop. Along the way there could be candy, so be sure to read each post! You may be asked to leave a comment, you may be asked to do something a little different,you just never know! Our challenge this week is an easy one .. it's an inspirational photo/color challenge and here's your photo!! 

So lets get this party started!! If you're arrived here from SUZANNE you're on the right track! If you're just popping by, be sure to start at Karen's Blog so you don't miss a thing!
Here's my layout for this weeks challenge
These photos really crack me up. I love how penetrating my daughter's eyes are, yet her hair is a jumbled mass upon her head. She fell asleep with wet braids and this is the result the next morning.
For the challenge I have used a loose interpretation of Creative Scrappers sketch 212
I'm so glad to be finally using the chip board set I got a few years back at a garage sale.
  The colors and wording work perfectly with this layout
a little bit of journaling instead of the line elements in the sketch.
Color me happy by leaving a comment and guessing my favorite color. I'm offering a small grab bag of things in my favorite color to one of my follower (LMDT included). I'll announce the winner on Monday June 18th.
Once you've hopped around, be sure to join the fun at Lasting Memories because Karen has decided to give one lucky entry a $25 gift certificate for Close To My Heart!!! 

"This is open to everyone, including my DT and winner will be chosen by Help celebrate this milestone with us!!"

And now it's off to your next stop, Lasting Memories Challenge Blog
