LO Round 2

Here's a round that I just feel kind of "blah" about... but I'm going to post them anyways.... you never know what may inspire someone!

I used SCAL to cut the batman logo on this one from a batman ding font. The PP is from the DCWV "All About Boys" stack.

Just a silly LO from when DH put the head of William's birthday Pinata on. PP is from DCWV "Safari" stack.

Just another "William being Silly" LO. PP is from My Minds Eye:

I was excited to do this one, but wasn't too happy with the result. (see detailed pics below). PP is from Me & My Big Ideas "Modern Milan" collection.

I printed 2 pics - 1 color and one B&W and cut out the color version and pop dotted it on top of the b&w:

The flower was the result of 3 new products I got: The big shot, the cuttlebug flower petal die & emboss kit, and Core'dinations "Black Magic" paper. So I cut the petals using the big shot, then I embossed them, then I sanded each one to get the black off and let the color show through.

I think if I had made the title bigger, I would have ended up really liking this one. PP is from Basic Gray "Ambrosia" collection.

To make the Spaghetti sauce "splotches" I used SCAL to cut out some splotches out from a ding font and make a stencil. Then I just used some color box cat eyes to put the stencils on!

You can't really see it, but I liked the "rainbow" thread I used to stitch the purple paper on, and the purple metallic MM paint I used to paint the chipboard letters on this one:

This one just ended up being too "loud" for me. PP is Basic Gray "Obscure":

I tried to see if I could get away with the flowers and pink on this one.... not too sure I liked it.

I didn't mean to post this one in this group... but oh well. I actually really like it. It talks about each of these items and how they are such a wonderful technological advancement. But at the bottom, there's a caveat that says by the time he gets to reading this in several years, they'll probably be considered "old fashioned." :o) PP is Basic Gray "Obscure":

  1. We have that same video monitor! I LOVE Spaghetti Time! Everything about it is awesome... the colors, the pp, the "splotches" GREAT JOB! Definitely a must lift! The Visitor is sweet.. I really like what you did with the two pictures. Batman is cute too.. Noah had a little pair of Superman pajamas when he was little with a little cape, too.
