naked Layouts at Lasting Memories

This weeks challenge at lasting memories is naked layouts.
Yes, you heard me correctly.  We're asking you to create layouts without photos.
It's not as hard as it sounds and is a great opportunity to scrap  your favorite poems, newspaper articles, get the idea.

What avid scrapper would forget to take photos of her own birthday? 
I had a camera out because I did take one photo of the wine chiller I made.
Totally Martha Stewartish.   Ice layered with colored marbles.
Time consuming to make, but fun to watch melt. 

Anyway we had way to much champagne cake and a little too much wine to be really productive scrappers during my party, but we sure did laugh  a lot.
the center focal is a basic list of
 who was there, what we ate and what we did or better yet didn't -scrap :(

embellishments were left over from my wedding album that I'm still working on
 and it's been 17 years this past August

Hope you've been inspired to join us this week and
don't forget to link up for our monthly prize.  The more you play the more chances to win.  We are also  looking for a December guest designer.  If you'd like a chance just add GDT after your name when you link it up.
