I'm getting excited about the Newsboys concert coming next Friday night!! I can't wait! I've never seen them in concert! They've changed band members more than any other Christian group, but I still kept up with them since 1993! Shine was the first song I remember of theirs! 8 Days!! March 9th can't get here fast enough!! :) TFL & Happy National Pancake Day!!

You can make any type of project for this challenge (a card, a layout, a 3D item, etc.) but you must explain in your post or description what inspired you :) For example.. it could be..
-green/grey/white pop and pop of auburn color palette
-engagement/wedding theme (she's holding a ring)
-project featuring a couple
-include a froggie (leap!)
-use a movie theme
-Irish theme (the movie is set in Ireland!)
I made this LO following the above requirements for TPV. I also used this for Scrappin-n-Chattin's Flag Challenge. I used the green/grey/white pop & a pop of auburn color pallette, my grandparents as the couple featured, and included a frog on the right of the pic! The sentiment and the frog inspired me. The sentiment states that "Nobody can do for little children what grandparents do. Grandparents sort of sprinkle stardust over the lives of little children"- Alex Haley. I used my favorite Gel Roller pen again on the frog and the words "Your wish will come true" (under the flags on the left side of the LO)! I used Studio G for the pic mat & sentiment mat. The gray behind the top part of the sentiment & the date block is Colorbox Textures. (I just realized you can't see the date block, but it is in the bottom right corner of the LO.) I was also inspired by the glow behind the couple in the pic of Leap Year, too, and went with that for the sentiment and my star pen! The title, journaling, and birds are Colorbok Family. The title is "These are the moments we live for" and the journaling states, "Grandmama always loved playing records on her record player. Especially John Denver & The Muppets! She could talk like Kermit the Frog! As you can see in the pictures behind them, they love all their grandchildren & family!" I was referring to the record player memories from when I was younger. Tyler never experienced that, but is in love with both grandparents! I made the flags from the flower paper and glued them on the toothpicks and then glued them down to the LO. The date the pic was taken is November 26, 2010.
My next blog post is probably gonna be about my Cape Hatteras Lighthouse plaque that I finally finished today! It will be ready for me to take home on Saturday!! :) TFL!

I decided to follow the Sketchabilities sketch for the LO below it. I entitled it "Rugged" because the boys are playing with their toys and they're boys! ;) I used DCWV All About Boys Stack & Basic Grey Oliver on everything except for the journaling block is Story Tellers Club/ Dream. The ribbon is some I bought from a LSS and decided to attach the ribbon with a brad instead of knotting it. The journaling states that "Tyler & Landen are second cousins, but only about a year apart in age. They get along so well! Dustin is ready to go home and is already asleep for the ride!" I decided to highlight the words "wheels", "memory", and "sounds" to go along with the pictures. Wheels for the trucks, memory for Buzz Lightyear on Tyler's shirt and a robot pic under the word "memory", and "sounds" since Tyler is covering his ears! I love the sparkle that comes out with my Gelly Roll Clear Star pen! :) TFL!

After reading Sunday's issue of Parade in The News & Observer, I decided to create a 4 pg entry in my SMASH Book about the Super Bowl and include a calendar for the month of February! I decided to do a Top 10 on Commercials & Highlights of the Super Bowl! Some of them are of The Voice and articles from Parade, but the majority centers around the Super Bowl! I won't type them all out, because I'm sick and need to get some rest soon. (That's another story in itself!) The MVP block is supposed to be "Your Picks!" so I did add Eli Manning, but then added Mario Manningham for 73 yds, Ahmad Bradshaw for making the most talked about TD that Eli didn't want him to make when he fell backwards (LOL), and Michael Lombardi for the trophy! LOL! I really went with the "your picks" idea! I thought I had football stickers, but couldn't find any. I had problems with the football stamp and wasn't giving up! I got ink all over my hand, but it wore off! I found the transparent paper & used a stencil to make the football on the left page. I wrote on it Super Bowl XLVI New York Giants! I wrote the final score at the top corner and included a "final score" sticker! The little t-shirt sticker in the middle of the right page has "Are You Ready For This?" on it! It's supposed to be put over a picture, but I liked the caption! My #1 is my Favorite Commercial- the Skechers dog race where the French bulldog wearing Skechers wins the greyhound race & moonwalked across the finish line! Two other commercials I liked was the Doritos commercial with the grandma & the Honda- Matthew Broderick commercial! I loved him as Ferris Bueller so that commercial reminded me of that movie! :) My #10 is my favorite article in Parade- "One Family, Six Continents, Twelve Good Deeds" (http://www.parade.com/news/2012/02/05-12-good-deeds.html). I won't tell what the article is about, but the main thing is this guy made a difference! I included the Parade cover on the 3rd page since it was kinda my inspiration and then wanted to include the Parade in my book so I added a February folder! I've actually started filling it up and have quite a few more days empty than I originally thought! I won't include my work schedule however so that takes up more time. I need to get off here and get some rest. I'm going to try to scrap some later this afternoon and post back on here Thursday! Have a great hump day! :)
