Why Fit In?

Good Afternoon my crafty peeps! We're home today having a pajama craft/game day today because we're all a bit under the weather. I can definitely tell you I am ready for spring!! I think I might protest for sure if we get any more snow!

This weekend the wonderful ladies over at Scrapbook Nerd are hosting a Dr Seuss inspired crop! Did you know that if he was still alive he would have celebrated his 110th birthday this month!! That was why we decided to crop in honor of this fabulous author!

I made this layout last night to play along with Michelle's challenge to use all or part of this quote on your layout or card: 

"Why Fit in When You Were Born to Stand Out?" -Dr. Seuss

I thought this quote would be perfect to document my funky new haircut!

I used my fabulous Daylight Savings Scrapbook and Mixed Media Kits from Paper Bakery for this layout. I'm totally loving the Amy Tangerine Plus One collection, so I had to use the Thickers to go with the patterned paper (even though they weren't in the kit!)

I was inspired by the March Sketch from Life.Paper.Scrapbook.

               The small grey alphabets are from the February Umbrella Rain Scrapbook Kit, and the white paint splatter is from the February Umbrella Rain Mixed Media Kit. I LOOOVE how that paint splatters!! It's amazing stuff!!

I had some extra mist left over after misting the piece of canvas that came in the Daylight Savings kit, so I sprayed a shipping tag  with water and then sopped up the Dylusions mist with it. After I dried it, I used the "art is in me" exclusive stamp from Paper Bakery and some grey ink and randomly stamped it all over. ***TIP*** When I'm doing something like that and I want it to look really random, I never put my stamp on a block. This way I can kind of bend it and shape it when I'm putting it on my surface and it doesn't come out looking like a square design on my stamp. 

When I misted the canvas I made sure I got it nice and wet first and that way I can get a more even look because the Dylusions mist reacts with water so it wicks out and blends. I sooooo love these mists! 

There's still lots of time to play along with us at Scrapbook Nerd!! You will have until next Friday to link up your challenge entries to be eligible to win some shop credit!! Who doesn't want to win a gift certificate to buy scrappy stuff?! I know I do!! 

Well, I'm off to clean my house (somebody has to do it!) I'm hoping to get some more challenges in tonight, so stay tuned and I'll post them here!!

Thanks for stopping by!!
Be Blessed!
