LO Round 4

I saw this one in a mag and had to lift it. I think the original said "Every Boy needs a tire swing." I just changed it up a little to fit my purposes. :o) I used the new K&Co "DayDreams" paper. But I have since obtained the October Afternoon "Hometown" kit that the original used... so I kinda wish I'd held off a little. :o)

The idea for this one came from the scrappin' mamas thread, and the inspiration for the design came from a round robin we did - Thanks Stephanie! :o) The background PP is from the Colorbok "Friendly Forest" and the lined scroll thingy is from Jenni Bowlin.

This is a direct lift from Scrappin' Mama Stephanie that I finally got around to! She had such a creative idea, I just had to copy it! (Thanks Again, Stephanie!) :o):

I love love love this one. I lifted it from a digital LO I found online. The PP is from the Sassafrass "Fawned of You" collection. The title's kind of "glared-out" but it says, "Hey mom! CHeck out my new ride!":

The only thing I wish I did different on this one was use a solid CS for the title. It's a little tough to read - it says, "The Ladies Man". I couldn't resist cuz Wil's just surrounded by girls in this pic and getting tons of attention. :o) I aged the photos in photoshop and used a "70's" theme to it. PP is Basic Gray "Archaic".

The inspiration for this title came from Jack Black in "Kung Fu Panda." :o) I used a softer approach int eh design though and used the My Minds Eye "Out & ABout" stack:

Another one of my favorites... Can you tell I like the "messy/chaotic" look? :o) I had so much fun with the details on this one. PP is Basic Gray "Boxer":
