How romantic...

I need to show you the photo from the challenge promt at Get Picky and the words following:

Welcome to this month's inspiration challenge prompt. We decided to embrace all things romantic with this gorgeous image below...who wouldn't want to come home to this....





When I saw this challenge I though NO WAY I can do this: there is so little pink and baby blue in my life (I'm the mum of two BOYS!) and leaving on a jet plane for a romantic weekend with hubby hasn't been possible for the past years!

But wait! There is a bed in that photo! And a lot of white! And I have some Sleepy Head photos! So I pulled out my pink and blue papers and a LOT of rubons and made a layout! Honestly I don't my layout would have looked like this if it wasn't for the get Picky challenge, but I love the way it turned out!





So you think I failed the challenge because my layout is not about romance? It is! Or about the lack of it, it is beetween the lines in the journaling: "Vacations are not all about action and exploring, but also about lazy mornngs - and never ending discussions in the evenings about who is sleeping where - like in the extra bed which is in the drawer under the sofa. This particular night M lost..."
Well, from experience I have learned that the queen size bed not necessarely is the most comfy bed in the appartment, the extra bed might be just as good or even better, but sleeping in a drawer, with the hubby snoring on the coach, isn't very romantic :-)
