i have been wanting and wanting to get crafty for the lawn fawn winter 2013 challenge forever!!!! but this week has been a little rough. BUT i was finally struck with an idea, and it was just all i could think about for two days, so i had to make it real! :) instead of a card, i made a layout for the challenge - hence the long shot (among other reasons!!)!
this whole layout is created because of the title - the jackson 5 song. and yes, it's been stuck in my head ALL week now, so if it's now stuck in your head, my apologies!! :)
i created the background of the paper to look like a chalkboard with quinn's abc's. i think that's my favorite part! ha!
the title was made by stamping (more!) quinn's abc's and then i also used chevron backdrops to add a little subtle pattern to the letters. and then i stamped right on some washi with harold's abc's to complete the title! :)
i also used lots of my new tab dies (LOVE them!!) which i adhered to the layout with staples! i thought the tabs and the staples were really 'school-ish', and since this layout is all about preschool, that's what i was aiming for! :)
oh! forgot to mention, some of the tabs are covered in washi tape for some pattern and variety. i went with a subtle washi pattern - stripes! that's not too bad, right? :)
so that's my longshot entry! i hope to be back after i get crafty this weekend with a few more entries! :) and you should too!
happy friday and enjoy! :)
