Once Upon a Time
It feels like way too long since I scrapped a page. I finished my parent's Disney album and I was burnt out on scrapping after that marathon. They did love their album for Christmas though. Here is a LO that I just finished today. Max and I have been down with the stomach flu and it felt good to get back up to my scraproom and get a page done. This is my DS, Evan. Since he's a kindergartner, he gets to participate in his school's Birthday Book Club for the first time. We pay $15 and he gets to pick what type of book he would like and the PTO purchases it in his name and it goes in the library. It's a good way for the school to get new books and it's great because the kids have a lasting memory of the books that they helped buy for the school. Evan's book this year was Jack and the Beanstalk. It's a newer version and very fun to read. There is an ogre in it instead of the giant. I used this awesome sketch over on Stuck on U Sketches (SOUS). My friend, Leah, has been wanting me to try some of the stuff over there...thanks, Leah for pushing me! ;) I used my Cricut for this LO. I used My Community for Jack, the beanstalk, the giant, and the hen. I never thought I'd get to use these great cuts on this cartridge. I used George for the circle, Tags, Bags, Boxes, and More for the funky background shapes, From My Kitchen for the golden eggs, and Storybook for the title. I did lots of inking on everything to make it all pop. I heat embossed the eggs for that perfect "golden egg" look. Papers are all by My Mind's Eye...Tres Jolie collection.
