Outside the Box

Here's the deal over on Sassy Cheryl's Challenge Blog this week - create a project in which you leave part of the image out of the box. Well that seemed easy enough. If you want to see some fantastic examples, just check out the DT's cards over on the Challenge Blog HERE. Since I'm running short of time for challenges(I'm working with my neighbor on creating some OWH Any Hero cards), I opted to do a two for one. My challenge card is also going to be entered in the Color Me Challenge on Sassy Cheryl's Blog.

The image is called "I Love You This Much Boy", and he's colored with copics. In this case it's pretty obvious he dressed himself, since coordinating clothes is obviously not happening. He reminds me of my grandson, MonkeyMoo and his mother, when she was a little girl. I have a school picture with her in an outfit that I can't believe her father let her leave home in EVER, much less on Picture day(I wasn't there at the time).

The papers are some I purchased from Create with TLC, and that I found in my stash of scraps(aren't you amazed that I remembered where they came from). The sketch is variation of a card that I saw made up in the Fall 2010 Paper Creations. The sentiment is something I typed up in Word.

Before I close, I want to remind you to check out and HELP SPREAD THE WORD about the Lungs 4 Life Fundraiser for Tripp Oldham. There is a fabulous image package and a raffle in which some fantastic prizes are going to be given away.

  2. So, what you're saying is. . . he doesn't match? I think he's darling!!!!
    I remember when Zach was little and he'd dress himself, he'd come out of his BR with his shirt on inside out AND backwards! It was the funniest thing.
    I LOVE your card with the blue and the yellow combo. And you're smart doing the 'two fer'.
