Whee! Whee, Whee, Whee, Whee!!! That was the call around our house last January whenever the Geico commercial with the little piggy came on the TV or Hulu. My husband loved to make the sound and wave his arms prompting Jasper, our cat, to run from the room. Jasper hated the little piggy and his imitator.
Now there is a new commercial with the little piggy going Whee, Whee, Whee down a zip-line. Lenny has only seen it once and it hasn't made it to Hulu yet. If it does, I'm sure there will be more fun or frustration depending on whether your perspective is human or feline.
This month's Scrapbooker's Anonymous challenge is to use masking and either paint, mist or ink. The Cricut cut out 5 Whee words for me and I adhered them to some plain white cardstock using removable adhesive. Then I sponged Brocade Blue ink from Stampin' Up! over them and misted them with a homemade mist from some Ranger Tumbled Glass ink.
I have a new blinkie on my sidebar as I was one of Scrapbooker's Anonymous picks from last month which tickled me. You still have a few more days to submit a layout with masking and misting/ink/painting. You could win their prize or get a fav pick. It's a good chance to work with those mists we've all been collecting.
The little flags were inspired by a Jen Gallager layout at Two Peas. I made my own flags with toothpicks and designer paper.
What I loved most about doing this layout was getting to do fun things like the flags and the pinwheel. Without children to scrap most of the time, I don't get to do as much fun stuff. I should remember that I have a 'senior child' and a somewhat silly cat. Who needs kids?
Thanks for visiting! (I hope you can comment. I've heard there are problems on my and some other blogs but I can't find anything about it or a fix.)
