CPC August Challenge

Hello, all!  I'm just popping by today to let you know the new theme for August at Child's Play Challenges.  This time around it's a classic toy: Weebles.  No matter how often you knock over a Weeble, it automatically pops back up, grinning all the while.  That perpetual, painted-on Weeble grin inspired me to use smiley face stamps on my layout.

Supplies: white cardstock from American Crafts; yellow cardstock from Wausau Paper; patterned papers, stickers, die cuts, & enamel shapes from October Afternoon; stamp from Inkadinkado; stamping ink from Hero Arts; edging ink from Autumn Leaves/Stampology; pen from Zig.

My retro-looking smiley face stamps accompany photos from a recent weekend of tie-dyeing.  A colorful grid design, made up entirely of assorted patterned paper scraps from my stash, ties the whole page together.  Overall, the effect is pretty groovy.  :)  Here are a few detail shots.




There are many other ways to draw scrapbooking inspiration from Weebles.  Please visit the Child's Play Challenges blog to see what the rest of the design team created.  Hope we'll inspire you!

What a colorful page. The beauty of this is, the craft project (tie-dye) the three of you created led to the other craft project (this scrapbook page) where color abounds. This was a fun and colorful page. LOVED the hands!

LOL...I was talking to someone the other day who said she could not find any tie-dyed stuff for her sons 21st. I said they should do it by hand...so this page made me smile thinking about it! Love those smiley faces...the tie-dyed goodies and the smiley faces reminds me of the 60's!
