07/16/13 - CPC: Cootie

Hello!
I'm back w/ another DT project!
 
Today's inspiration from "Child's Play Challenges" is the game "Cootie":
 
 
 
I remember playing this game w/ both of my kids when they were younger.  It's one of those games that will continue to be around for generations!
 
 
Here's what I did w/ it:
 

  
"Witches and Spells" 
Journaling: "Goofing around at Tom's Farms October 13.13"
 
 
The green-faced "cootie" reminded me of the green face of the witch in these pictures of my son and daughter posing w/ a Halloween prop.
 
BTW - if you're wondering about the "shimmery" BG...it's not actually that way.  It's actually just a textured BG but for some reason it became distorted on Blogger.  It doesn't look that way IRL or in my photo gallery at home.
Row-weird!! (that's how David and I sometimes say "weird"...LOL)
 
Okay, moving on...
Besides the CPC challenge I was also inspired by a sketch from "Colorful Creations" :
 
 
 
 
So far I still seem to be sticking to the simpler style layouts.
I have mixed feelings about it. I like that I can get layouts done quicker without feeling stressed, therefore allowing me to get more done during my rare moments of spare time, however I sometimes feel like the layouts aren't quite "finished".  But I think eventually I will get used to it.
I'm just glad to be scrapping again!
 
 
Not much else to say...
So I leave you w/ a reminder to check out the rest of the projects over at CPC!

  1. Cool page! I always like seeing where you take the inspiration. I wouldn't have thought to go the green-face direction, which is cool.
