Page Maps Challenge Daffy VS Pratchett

Page Maps is having a contest that ends TODAY. So I quickly made this LO last night. I used word to put a white border around the pictures and add thought bubbles and lighting. Then I made different splats and lightning in word and changed the gradient and patterns and cut all those little shapes out!

The shiny background is DCWV At Home collection. That yellow thing I have no idea!! Pinky gave it to me a while back and I thought it just worked well :D There names are in Thickers by American Crafts. I love Big Lots! Those packages were about 2 bux a piece :D

Whoo Discovered the new templates when I was running my friend through blogger. Very fun I think it fits me nicely. Might need to play with fonts a bit :)

I've been staring at my scrappy supplies and going back and forth to the TV :p Maybe tomorrow!

Furry Friends

I did this for Ch{all}ange Masters Week 1 Book of Me Challenge.

The challenge was "What is it about your house that makes it a home?"

The tag was made by Beth W for me in a pet swap. I used a chipboard house from Crayola and covered it paper. The roof was punched with Fiskars Upper Crest, layered, sanded and inked. The furry friends was a rubon I've had for ages from My Minds Eye. I embossed the little bits of paper with the new cuttlebug typset. I sanded the P for Pratchett and Ponder, the H for home and S for Steve my hubby who I managed to snap a picture of.The red cardstock was trimmed with a stamp deco edge trimmer. I used a May 2010 Page Map for my sketch.

Grandpa Malik

Wow over a month it's been! Thank goodness for Page Maps Blog having a Sketch Contest to get me jumpstarted again!

I visited my parents at the beginning of July and found these awesome papers by Bo Bunny called Mamarazi. Scrapbooking from the Inside Out has some of the papers in their Discovery Kit.
With the old cameras and travel papers I thought this would be wonderful paper for my Grandfather's old photos. So I searched around my parents house and got with my Uncle to find old photos and I scanned them into my parents computer. Snapfish was having a sale so I got a good deal on the photo prints too :) It's nice not having to use cardstock for all my pictures!

The Metalic background is from DCWV At Home cardstock stack. It matched really well with the Bo Bunny and was on clearance at Michaels. The ribbons were things I had in stash. I inked the white ric rac with Tim Holtz Distress Ink Frayed Burlap. The edges of the bracket paper and the PP were distressed and inked with Faded Jeans Distress Ink. The buttons were from Pinky's Stash that she gave to me. The metal tag was in my stash and I inked it with lettuce, Gold Metalic and a brown Alchol Ink. The photo slide had been in my stash from a swap probably when I still lived in FL. The letters are American Craft Thickers found at Big Lots. I used funTape and Daisy D's rub ons around the edge (Daisy D's went in the trash afterwards) but the Daisy D's regular rubon's worked well under the title on the pictures. I used a scrap of brown cardstock, punched it with Fiskars Upper Crest, ran it through my crimper, trimmed it, sanded and inked it with Faded Jeans and put it under the left photo.
