In case you placed bets yesterday, I lasted about 6 hours before I gave DH his suitcase scrapbook! He LOVED it (of course). He immediately recognized it was supposed to be a suitcase and that the stickers were all from places we've been. I got super-bonus points for one of the pin-up girl pictures being on his favorite airplane (which was just luck on my part that it came up in the first couple pages of searching). And of course he loved all the photos (and the cross-processing). He was also excited to see his own plane on one of the stickers, made from a photo that he took (I used postercize in Picnik, then added some text).
Yesterday we also went to a free Gofobo preview of Dinner for Schmucks last night. First of all, let me say, this is the way to see a movie at the theater. We usually wait for the DVD because of all the movie theatre obnoxiousness, but this was a full house of nice, normal, well-behaved people, threatened with ejection if they used their cell phone (including texting) AND they made the lady with the screaming baby leave AND there were no previews or commercials before the movie (AND did I mention it was free?). Second of all, it was a darn funny movie!! You know how most comedies nowadays are really funny for the first 10 minutes, kinda funny for about 30 minutes, then it's just a long, unfunny hour until the end? Well, this had us laughing the entire two hours-I would definitely recommend it if you're looking for a stupid-in-a-good-way comedy.
Anyway, onto the cards! Here's another Dare to Get Dirty card that I made last week:
One-Layer Wonder Challenge to use outline stamps on a square card. It is also in honor of Susan's new puppy because PUPPY!! This is an Eat Cake Graphics stamp aptly titled "Rowley Jumps Yippee!" and the sentiment is from a Hot off the Press Hobby Lobby set. I cut a 3/8 inch mat from a piece of copy paper and taped it down over my 4 1/4 inch So Saffron cardbase, then stamped Rowley all over in Memento Rich Cocoa. After I took the mat off, I markered in a border using a ruler.
Well, I think this post is long enough for now, doncha think? I better get back to finishing those last few DTGD challenges--I heard they're picking up some prizes at CHA!
