Blogger's Challenge #20


Our challenge this week was to use a photo or magazine pic as the focus for our project. After much difficulty in finding the right pic and being able to print it on my computer (I won't go into that!) I am happy with my cowboy! This is my dh, Steve. He was on my mind all week as he had been at a conference since last Friday. He has arrived home, safe and sound and is now resting as he drove a LOT in the past two days. I'm off to spend some time with him in a bit!


This 6 by 6 scrapbook page proves how wonderfully fast and easy our Simply Scrapin' kits are! I cut the background 6 by 6 from the Really Rust textured cardstock from the Round Up SS kit. Added a smaller piece of the enclosed background paper. Trimmed one of the die-cut sticker borders and added another die-cut to finish it off. I layered my photo after distressing a bit with chocolate chip ink. I added a couple more die-cuts and ta-da! I'm finished! NO STAMPING! YIKES! I had a 'title' of sorts stamped and was going to put in on the picture. Then, I realized it would cover the fringes...the very thing that makes him a cowboy in the pic! So, no 'title' but one of the die-cuts say "one of a kind." He sure is!!! Thanks for looking!
