Doodle Challenge, Nick Jr. Style!

Wow, I can't believe I'm the last one to finish this challenge! I literally just finished this page 5 minutes ago, and I really like it. I've been dying to make a page honoring Eleana's big love for Yo Gabba Gabba!, and finally had the chance to do so thanks to this awesome challenge.

Sharon posted a link to the page we "scraplifted," though I think mine turned out less like the original than any of them. Sorry girls. I hope you like it!

I got a Bamboo Fun pen tablet for an early birthday/late anniversary gift, and used it to create all my doodles digitally. I think if you click on the image it'll get bigger so you can see it more. I included lyrics from Eleana's favorite Yo Gabba Gabba! songs, images of some of the characters, the show's logo, etc. At the bottom I stamped, "My name is Eleana, I like to dance." For those of you who haven't seen the show, periodically throughout the 30 minutes they show clips of children saying that phrase and doing dances.

The journaling was hand written also, and reads: If it's a weekday and 11:30, be sure we're watching Yo Gabba Gabba! Eleana knows all the songsa nd applies the lessons to every day life - if she bumps into us she sings the "sorry" song. She beat boxes along with Biz, learns new dances, and makes her funny face. She knows it all and loves each character dearly. Now, who wants to dance?

I loved this challenge Sha! Who's next?


What's so funny? said...

Adorable! I have to find out how your new gadget works. But it sure looks cool! It's perfectly fine that it's not exactly like the original. The doodling was the main objective. And the page is super cute. Great idea to put the lyrics. And it'll be great fun for E to look back on! I really enjoyed looking at it close up. Lots to see! Good job!

And good job everyone else! Who would like to go next?
