Good morning! well we were hoping for some sun today so we could all take off to the farm or a park or something but no such luck – so instead we are heading into town and i convinced hubby we need to stop at Cold Stone Creamery for some ice cream cupcakes. my neighbor has been telling me about them for weeks and says they are TO DIE FOR!!
i have another project for the Challenge Blogs Blog Hop today! This one incorporates 2 challenges:
1. Creative Twist - Down n Dirty: LO involving getting dirty
2. Practical Scrapper - Use diecuts: any die cuts, any type of machine.
I really got excited when i read the Down N Dirty challenge because i JUST took a bunch of pictures of Pezzy where she was a FILTHY FILTHY mess from head to toe:
here they are 1 page at a time for a better look:
Daddy built her a playset which she ADORES. She spent about a week covering it with chalk – WET chalk – because chalk works so much better wet. Of course in the process she also ended up covering HERSELF in a nice coating of chalk with some dirt mixed in!
i used a Page Maps sketch (as always) and some adorable Prima papers i picked up at my LSS. My die cuts are the lettering which i did on my cricut and the felt die cuts which i purchased at asecinc on Etsy (etsy is THE VERY best place to go for fun and unique embellies!) now could i have made them myself – OF COURSE but frankly i run out of time and plus i love to help out a fellow crafter! as a finishing touch i added several of my skittle bugs and then a row of bright green Pezabling acrylic squares across the bottom. AGAIN pretty simplified but HEY at least i am gettin a LITTLE crafty!!! here are some close ups of the cute little skittle bugs:
and now i am off for some ice cream! i do hope y’all take some time to check out the Blogs on the Challenge Blog Hop – they are really wonderful and all were new to me so maybe they are new to you too!
