I created this layout for the One Little Word Challenge this month, using a sketch Becky Fleck designed just for them:

I so want her new sketch book–love sketches!

The dinosaur is one of the first things I did with my Copics. Fellow Copic lover Dawn Tumelty and I sat up at Desert Scrappers in May stamping and coloring until the wee hours of the morning–it was super fun! I stamped this little dinosaur and some other items, cut them out, and kept them in my embellie tote for just the perfect page. I made the dinosaur steal the soda…so Matt!

I also altered the photo in Photoshop–I am trying to do this more, especially on pic with wayyyyyyyyy too many colors. I was able to tone down all the stuff in my pantry (the background) to focus on Matt, and change the color of his shirt to match my papers — it was a BRIGHT Blue Terminator T-shirt.

This weekend I'll be doing a card make n take at Laurie Rush's Crop In Orange — it's my Prima Cards for the Troops make n take. We'll use Copics, embossing, stamps, and lots of fun Prima goodies. I am hoping to squeeze in a little cropping too ;) Hope to see you there!

Happy Creating!

  7. omg! I have one just like him–although he’s 11 now and can reach most “snacks” now he might decide at 11pm that he is hungry so we find crumbs on the counter next morning!
