the interns

i just wanted to share a quick post of a scrapbook layout i made for the most recent sweet stamp shop - use what you have challenge! one of my new favorite ways to use up my old (decrepit) stash of crafty supplies! i feel awesome after i do this challenge because i make something great, and i also use something that may or may not have given up on ever seeing the light of day in my craft room! lol! 

so, this time, i made a layout! and a little backstory here: i work full time from home, and my little menn love nothing more than to sit at my desk and 'work' if the chair is empty! what's more exciting to the littles than two computers, a mouse and a corporate phone? lol! so now then, here it is:

the stamp sets i used from the sweet stamp shop are alpha tabs, lil sweet peeps, and let's chat! i colored in the camera and added an enamel dot to the lens and popped it up!  also created some 'rays' from the camera in teal, white and grey, i really like how that looks!  the two little dudes were also colored with some of my copics (i'm very much an amateur!), but i do like how the hair turned out, beginner-level-wise!

i layered some washi behind these pictures (and i had to share a close up of it, i mean - look at that face!) ha ha!

there's an itty bitty bag from whisker's graphics on this layout too, which i filled with the 'message' card from the let's chat stamp set.

so the old stash - those would be the old looking rotary numbers (which i placed on my layout in a circle to reflect the old dials!)! i bought those at target - no LIE - about 4 years ago from the dollar section! and i have loved them, but not known that to do with them! and it wasn't until i went to place them on my layout that i realized they were magnets! lol!! surprise!! i wasn't going to not use them though, they're way too cool!

so that's it! i hope you're able to play along this week - it's such an awesome challenge! 
enjoy! (and happy father's day!!)
