...Picture This Farm Fresh Friday

Happy Friday, everyone! It's Farm Fresh Friday again at The Greeting Farm Blog, and Kim Nath has come up with a wonderful challenge...use a picture on your creation. I have to admit that I was terrified when I saw it, because I knew that a scrapbook layout was in my future! LOL! I don't think that I have ever shared a scrapbook page since I have started my blog, but I might have to start doing them more often...it was FUN!!! As you can already see, I used my oldest son, Christian, and his girlfriend as my subjects. I had taken this picture of them acting silly a few weeks ago, and I immediately knew that it was the one that I wanted to showcase here.

I stamped "Maggie Bunny" in black onto Watercolor Paper, then colored her with an Aquapainter. I paired her with some of my K & Company Ooh La La-For Her patterned paper. I stitched the green polka-dotted panel, and created a wavy edge on the striped panel with the EK Success Dotted Wave Slim Edger Punch. I created the sentiment with some of my retired Sizzix Alphabets, then added three Silver Brads above the photo. Maggie was attached to the lower right-hand portion of the page with Dimensionals.

Now let's see what the other design team members have come up with today:

That's it for me! I am heading out first thing this morning to spend the weekend with my girls to do a little stamping and laughing, so I have got to get some rest before then! LOL! Thanks for stopping by, and I will see you back here tomorrow with a Crazy 4 Challenges creation. Until then...

Stamps: Maggie Bunny (The Greeting Farm)
Papers: Kraft, Melon, Watercolor, Ooh La La-For Her DP (K & Company)
Inks: black, melon, pink, saffron, sahara
Accessories: brads, sponge dauber, border punch, distressing tool, sewing machine, dimensionals, big shot, sizzlets alphabet, xyron sticker maker

I loved how the whole Critter Crew used the same stamp for our projects!! Great minds do think alike, don't they?! ;) And I really love how we both used some of our card techniques on the scrapbook pages, like the distressing and stitching. Have a FABULOUS weekend with the girls Mercy - I'm so there...in spirit! ;)
