Scrappin’ Men!


(ADDENDUM:  Forgot to mention that this photo was taken by a good friend and a great scrapper, Pia!  Thanks dear!  Sorry to have forgotten the credit! Mwah!)

A tribute to the men who understand, indulge and support us in our passion and addiction for our “art”.

These are the men who just scratch their heads when their wives squeal in delight at some papers and odd looking little things we call embellishments…who are still puzzled why a piece of scrap cost more than a McDonalds Happy Meal… who stay in bed with our kids when we are incarcerated in our own little world often forgetting that the sun will soon rise…who take care of our home when we,  their wives get together for our regular “session”…who dig in in their wallets and have their eyes bawled out when they see the credit card bills…who  should  be nice and should be all praises when we show them our “work” or else…for all of these, we can only say “thank you”! You are our “wind beneath our (scrappin’) wings!

Advanced Happy Father’s Day, guys!



Journaling:  No, they’re not scrappin’, they’re are our No. 1 fan…and our perinially broke financier!  Thank you for always indulging us!

Materials Used:  Papers: Basic Grey-Infused, Sugared, Lily Kate, Eva, Scarlett Letter, Love Elsie;  Embellishments-Basic Grey Tag, MM Journaling Note, Prima flowers, Mesh, AC thickers, Local ribbon, bling, felt.

For this LO, I used Becky Fleck’s sketch found in Pagemaps’ Blog for BG’s Contest.   Here’s the wonderful  sketch:


Try it out and join the fun!  You still have a few hours to work on it!  Go!
