Yabba Dabba Doo

I hope everyone is enjoying the last bit of summer that is left. I am not looking forward to the cold weather that will be here in the next couple of months.

The challenge for Child's Play this time is based off the classic cartoon tv show The Flintstones. This one was very easy for me. I knew the photo I was going to use right away. One of my son's favorite outside toys was his push car. I think just about every child had one of these. I always see them around. This car reminds me of when the Flintstones had to get their car going. They had to use their feet just like my son's car.

I used Scenic Route, Tim Holtz & Coordinations paper for my layout. I distressed the Coordinations paper to  bring the green color through. I cut the corners of the mats to give a more distinctive look. I cut the words apart from the paper & inked them with black soot distress ink. The decorative car brad is from My Mind's Eye & I received the border from a scrapbooking friend.

Hope you can join us at Child's Play Challenges & let the Flintsones inspire you.

Happy Scrappin!

Weebles wobble

How is everyone doing? I am busy busy this summer. Trying to keep up with everything.

The challenge this time at Child's Play is based on the toy Weebles. Do you know the saying for it? Weebles wobble but dont fall down. If you have not heard of them, go to Child's Play Challenges and there is a picture of the toy that you can see.

This is my layout that I made for the challenge. The wobble motion of the Weebles inspired me to use the photos of my son's bouncy chair.

I used some washi tape to make borders around my photos. The embellishments that I used were star stickers from Darice, wood veneers from Studio Calico and a joy brad from Prima. The wood veneers were moistened with embossing ink, sprinkled with white embossing powder and heat set.  I also used a yellow gelato & water to paint the stripes to go to the stars.

Stop over at Child's Play and see if you can get inspired by the Weebles. We would love to see what you come up with.

Happy Scrappin!
