Life is just a bowl of cherries



Happy Tuesday - I thought I'd blog for a few minutes before I go to the book store to work and hopefully find some treasures. I made this layout as one of mine to submit for the Bad Girls DT call but obviously I didn't win. I recognized some of the names of the winners and really congratulate them. I know the competition was steep and they were the cream of the crop. Looking forward to seeing their layouts.

This was a fun layout - I had cut the purse out of an old Dwell magazine and did a little research on Andy Warhol (I had a hard time believing he did this drawing but it was an early piece). Once I decided to use the Bob Fosse lyrics, the whole thing just came together. I had seen cupcakes on other people's layouts but, in my NOT BUYING IT mode, I made my own from cardboard, felt, and brads.The sequin waste came from some items that I won from SATU from Crop Suey. After the layout was not picked for Bad Girls, I added the journaling on the cupcake base - enjoy the party, have FUN and submitted it to SIS and OLW. I have to admit the layout just makes me happy.

Last night I got a little crazy (or so Dan said) with puns about gnomes. I am working on a quickie layout fot Inspired by Amelie. The challenge this time is create a layout with the gnome so I had painted a small mountain landscape for my watercolor class and I thought about putting the gnome in the front and titling it Gnome, gnome on the range, and then I started thinking about There's no place like gnome and Phone gnome, and, well, you get the picture.

Off to eat some breakfast. Have a great day!

By the way, I changed my user name on Scrapinstyletv to ChrisA (old name was kalaiton).
