A Bucket List LO with BoBunny Calypso
Do you have a bucket list? Have you scrapped it? I admit, I don't have a list, and obviously have not scrapped it. But my sister does!! Today's layout is all about her and her new red convertible. She can now cross that off her bucket list, along with the sky diving she did a few years ago. (eeks!!) My sister is one brave and adventurous woman! I think the biggest thing on my bucket list would be to take an Alaskan cruise with my sweetie! (LOL)
I called this layout "Top Down" because Abby wondered where the car's roof had gone. I explained it was a convertible, and that the top was down, and that it can go up if it started raining. She and I had a blast riding in the back on a bright sunny day (just had to explain why I am so washed out in the self portrait - located upper right on the photo collage). (LOL) Abby thought the car ride was much better than a rollercoaster, and of course we had more wind - which made for some fun "Cousin It" style photos.
Photoshop was used to create the photo collage for quick photo placement. I printed the collage on letter sized photo paper. BoBunny Double Dot cardstock in red was used - because, afterall, we are featuring a red car! I cut around some flowers on the Calypso paper to overlap the photo, propping them up with foam adhesive for dimension. The journaling card was also lifted off with foam adhesive. To add sparkle to the BoBunny Chunky Chip alpha letters I simply coated them with sparkle Mod Podge. Time to get more of that stuff - I am running low and I use it a lot!
I found multi-colored rub-ons in my stash to add some words here and there. If Teresa did not have "getting a tatoo" on her list, well, now it kind of looks like she has one on her arm with the word "enjoy" going across the photo. (LOL)
It is the last day before school starts. We are heading to Governor Dodge State Park for a fun morning hike. Hoping to find the waterfall, and I am sure there were will be stone skipping on the lake. My camera is ready to go, and so is my family - enjoy this last day of August. Consider scrapping a bucket list, I have to give this one some thought...
