Well I’ve just discovered that I can blog using Windows Live Writer and it will publish on my blog…so we’ll see how this goes!
Anyway, a friend of mine, Cheri, has just recently opened up her online business, Graphicat Designs where she is selling some pretty awesome Digis that she has created! She’s also doing a monthly sketch challenge and all you have to do is create something based on her sketch and you could win 2 free digis! So, here’s my take on her sketch. You can check out the sketch here.
I did this layout about the funny things my son Caleb says. The way he pronounces words just cracks me up, and I didn’t want to forget the cute things he says, so I had to scrap about it! The journaling says: Thaanthaan=Ethan, Keeyan=Kieran, Yahyah=Maia, Gaga=Luca, which later turned into “Hooka”, Guckie=Suckie, Dodo=Thomas, Yinnie-A-Pooh=Winnie the Pooh, Sammy=Sandwhich, Cracko=Cracker, Hattoo=Tattoo, Hoakie=Cookie
It’s the cutest thing in the world when I make train sandwiches (using a train shape cutter for the bread) and he sits there eating his “Dodo Sammy”!
I made the title (on top) with Tim Holtz ticket die cut, Vagabond, stamp, font, and Distress Crackle paint and Distress Ink. ( I really Holtz’d this LO up, as Tara would say! lol) anyway, here’s a close up: You can also see in the close up the fabulous new Tim Holtz pointy finger stamp that came in the set that my awesome bosses at Creative Accents brought me back…um…SIGNED BY TIM HOLTZ!!! Did I tell you guys that I love you?!?! hehehe
I made the border with my Silhouette, then glued it to some adhesive backed cork (quickutz)
The stars in the bottom corner are some pre cut Grungeboard stars that I sprayed with Glimmer Mist, and then topped it off with Distress Crackle paint (rock candy), then smudged it with Distress Ink (Walnut Stain).
I also used Coredinations cardstock and embossed it with a Tim Holtz Sizzix folder. The patterned paper is Fancy Pants Rough and Tough.
I’m also entering this LO in the DYSU challenge. Their challenge is “Shine On”. Now this might be a stretch, but my stars are totally shiny! And the title on the top of the page is so shiny I could barely get a decent pic of it! lol so I figure that should count! It’s also going to be entered at Sketches in Thyme. They’re doing an open sketch challenge. So as long as you used a sketch, you can enter!
Anyway, I really hope you guys go check out Cheri's Digis, they’re freakin AWESOME!! You will NOT be disappointed!
Thanks for stopping by!
