We Cropped Till We Dropped

Good Evening All! Hope you had a great day! My first day back at school after spring break was great. We only have 3 more weeks of school after this week. I told my students today that I was sick. They asked, "What's wrong?" I said, "I'm sick of school!" Then I explained that it is so hard for me to be in school during the spring. I want to be outside. I then told them that teachers feel the same way they do; they are ready for school to be out too. I will truly miss my "little darlings", but they are ready for the next level.

Now, as for scrapping, Aymee and I scrapped all day yesterday. We had a blast. We completed several challenges from JS and TS. This layout was created based on "A Poem for Your Thoughts" posted by my friend Kelly. I chose my baby (25 year old baby) because she is my best friend. I chose to write a cinquain poem. There is no photo on this layout yet because it isn't ready for pick-up.

This is a close-up of the cinquain.

This layout is based upon a challenge submitted by another friend, Ziggy. The challenge was to scrap about a road trip, and as a bonus to include a dragon. She also posted info about "The Dragon's Tail", so I chose to scrap about our Labor Day weekend motorcycle trip to Deal's Gap/The Dragon's Tail. As you can see, I included a post card as well as pics. I also used Paper Doll Dress Up for the dragon. Thanks Zigs for the great challenge.

Here is a close-up of the dragon.

Next, Cristal posted a challenge on JS which was to use a post card and her sketch in a layout. So, here is my interpretation of that fun project. I decided to do a 2 page layout, so this serves double duty for me. I also posted the results on TS for a 2 page lo challenge. I used New Arrival on the left hand layout because it fit so well with a weekend trip my friend Kathy and I took to northern Georgia (Helen, Dalonega - spelling?, and Cleveland). Cleveland is the home of the Cabbage Patch General Hospital. We had a blast in that place. The right hand page was created using photos taken while we were there, as well as the Paper Doll Dress Up cart for the baby face and Home accents for the leaves which I altered to mimic the cabbage leaves in the pics.

Here is a close up of the right hand page.

This photo shows more detail of my Cabbage Patch Baby embellishment.

This is a close up of the left hand page. As you can see, I used the Paper Doll Dress Up to create the stork and baby. Then, I shaded it to look more like the stork/baby in the post card.

Here is a close up of that fun little stork/baby.

Thanks so much for visiting my blog and viewing my posts. I hope you have a great evening and a wonderful day tomorrow.
Happy Scrappin'
