Hey gang! I have had the scrap bug, BIG time! Before I went on vacation, I headed out to the big box stores to load up on whatever goodies I could find, and then I hit "The Dream" I got tons of paper and goods that I was dying to use. I was hoping to spend a few days before my vacation scrapping some stuff that I have been meaning to get to - knowing that when I returned I would be scrapping my trip. Well, I got sick. I am talking the NASTY stomach bug, SICK! Needless to say, I got nothing done before leaving for the Magic Kingdom AKA, Disney! Anyway, I ordered some (200) pictures from our trip, and thought while I was waiting for them to come in, I should get out some of my new goodies...here is what I created....
The supplies; Bazzil Basics - white, Three Bugs in a Rug (the lettering, the strips and the tags), American Crafts ribbon, and some star bling.
I was really having a hard time with making the letters pop. (side note, I am realizing that this is a theme of mine - I guess I really like letters). Anyway, I did my 'famous' go-around-the-edges with a marker thing. Came out OK - but in a few spots it was really messy -thus the usage of more tags behind the lettering - shhhh, don't tell anyone. :) The "o" was plain. Too plain, so I wrapped ribbon around it. Looks cute, if I do say so myself. The "S" and the "I" are also very plain, so I added bling on the "S" and doodled some stars on the "I".
Of course, nothing I do would be complete with the use of ink! All around the edges of every letter and the paper. To put it as Sharon does "that's how I roll".
WARNING - I hate to say this ladies, but I will probably be posting LOTS of Disney stuff soon. Don't worry, I won't post every page that I do, just the few that I like the most. I will try to do other stuff in between as to not bore anyone (including myself), but I am REALLY excited about doing this...just be warned. LOL
