Scrap Our Stash ~ Photo Inspiration Layout

Hi Scrappers!  

They have a fun Photo Inspiration Challenge going on now.  Here's my layout:
The challenge is to use this photo:
as inspiration and create a layout.  You must also add "anything that sparkles" on your layout.  As you can see, the colors inspired my layout.  I also used pearl swirls… which really don't sparkle… lol.. so I added some rhinestone arrows on the top of the layout. :) 

If you would like more information on this challenge,
please see the Scrap Our Stash blog.

Happy Scrappin'!

My night with Usher :)

Good Morning All!!

So I'm waking up this Sunday morning in A FABULOUS mood!!!   I'm going to take a break from my usual scrapbook post and share with you my wonderful date night with  my hubby!  He knows how much I love me some USHER!!! :)  So my husband took me last night to see him in concert!  

 We had great seats…. not floor (glad too because I wanted to see EVERYTHING!!!)
but a few rows up from floor.

As usual… Usher put on a fantastic show with lots of dancing and the best music!! Here is just a few photos of the many I took last night:




And some close ups of the screen that didn't come out that well:
I think he is pointing at me! :) 


I also took a few small video clips and these are my favorite:

This is one of my favorite songs by Usher:

I love the last few dance steps Usher does here:

WARNING!!! This is for mature audience only!!!  But pay attention to the noise…
you may hear me! LMBO! 

And the finale… This video came out far better than the others!  Oh and I turn it off before he tore OFF HIS SHIRT!  Gosh darn it!!! I was so excited it took me too long to turn it back on and by then… it was over! :( 

Well that was my night with my two men… hubby and Usher!  I couldn't ask for me! :) 

Thanks for stopping by my blog! :)
