Challenge the stripes and the bright (neon) colours

Over at ARTastic Challenge Blog their current challenge inspiration is this photo with the criteria -striped patterned paper and bright cheerful colours.
My layout was inspired by the stripes in the deck chair on the poster.  I have used striped paper from a Project Life range called Sunshine (also appropriate don't you think for the poster). In a moment of creativity I realized I had a pot of fine glitter somewhere in my stash. Off I went to find it.  I ran lengths of double sided tape in 2 sizes (mimicking) that deckchair horizontally and vertically onto striped paper and then on removing top tape I liberally applied the glitter.  Result - glitter all over the place - oh well, who does not like a bit of bling.
I have also made my own brads and circle embellishments from the off cuts of the "blingy bits" another inspired moment - I remembered I had the fixings for the brads again somewhere in that great stash in the hope that one day I will use it!!!.
These photos were taken on the day Laura (by now you know that she is a friend from Missouri and that I spent time with her, her husband and her sons recently) and I went to Laser Tag in Colombia, MO. Her boss had arranged a staff function and as I was in town I got to go as well. Yippee!!! As you can see I came a respectable third (it doesn't matter that there was 4 of us playing does it?). We also had games of laser tag which will be the subject of another layout.  A great afternoon of fun and laughter.
