Big girls DO play with Dollies!!!! (Design Dollie Sketch Challenge)
Yes they do! This one does! And I ain't ashamed of it!!! I'm talkin bout the DESIGN DOLLIES of course!!!!!!!
I swear, I need a PR job somewhere.....I'm pretty good at this.....LOL.
I am gonna "attempt" to keep this post short and sweet........just like me!!! We are having bad weather here in Knoxville today and my internet is being very tempermental! I tried to do this last night but ZAP!! Out went the power. Hate when that happens!
That doesn't mean my weekend has been uneventful....trust me! It needs it's own blog post....seriously! Or Springer episode maybe!
So back to the task at hand......the Design Dollies sketch! I love all of thier challenges. And all of the Dollies :) And this sketch is way cute! Take a peek!
These half circle LO's are all over the place lately! Actually circles in general. Or at least in most of the sketches I have seen lately. So I seen this and I set to do my thing with it yesterday.....whatever that "thing" may be.....lol. I was gonna say my magic but we all know that is BS :) But I had these cute pix of Jesse and his friend Nicholas at the zoo during the field trip a week ago. Nicholas's mommy passed them along to me at the Mother's Day Tea party. She is so sweet! I have bunches of pix of the last few weeks of Kindergarten events but I am gonna scrap them. So rather than share them all and then share them AGAIN when I show off my page I will just do it once.
So, I sat to do this page yesterday....and cut my circle out and then cut it in half and realized "CRAP!!! I cut my paper upside down!!!"
How do you cut paper upside down you may wonder.....Well, it is printed and has words. So I just flipped the design and did it from the other side...which was kinda weird for me. I tend to want to put everything on the left side of my pages....I have noticed this trend. So I worked the other way and it seemed to take forever......lol.
I used plain ol kraft cardstock which I am now buying in bulk cuz I love it so much. This page is really SO much brighter than it shows up here. All the patterned papers and the "Welcome to the jungle" embellie are DCWV Safari Kids (boys) I haave to specify that even tho it's obvious cuz they also have a super cute girls collection with a lot of pinks :) (There's a heads up to Julie who has some great zoo pix of her little girl Brookie!) The alpha is from Pink Paislee's Capitivating.....my blog winnings from last week!! It's so cool in real life and looks like wood. PERFECT for this page and the colors!
So there ya have it!!
Check back either later tonight or in the morning. We will be kicking off another week at Scrap It With A Song and have a new song for you to draw inspo from and a BUNCH of awesome DT eye candy! AND the winner from this past week will be announced as well as the few, the proud, the elite TOP FIVE!!! And trust me...it was HARD to choose this week!!!
