Hard Hats Required


This summer is absolutely whipping by! My oldest is busy with summer camps, travels and good ol' hanging out with me :D and my youngest has offically started walking...sigh..

During all that excitement I've managed to make a page that I'm going to throw into TWO challenges! Oh yeah, I'm proud ;)  I'm playing along with CSI case file no. 28 and Creative Scrappers! CSI offered a color scheme I would've never thought to work with and I got just the design inspiration I needed when I saw the CS sketch!

My oldest daughter has always loved helping her dad construct things...in fact for her 2nd birthday, we got her a tool set and table! Of course that was years ago but she still loves constructing stuff. In these photos, her 2.5 yr old little self is helping her dad make a gate...she even put on her "hard hat" for the job ;)

For my EVIDENCE I used robots, circles, repetition, and metal. For my testimony I used repetition in my journaling: 

Little Sophia at work....buzz buzz! whirl whirl! bang bang! She love to help appa build things...

I took the black bottle caps and covered with gesso and a coat of Glimmer Glaze
in Basically Bare Coconut Shell. Next I wrapped floral wire around in loops. 

Aren't these robots so cute? These are free dingbats off the net called Tombots
that I printed, colored and cut.

Virtually impossible to see but I put down a large helping of textured paste and
smooshed (the official description) the letters into the paste.

I'm so excited by the splatter effects of Distress Stains! Very
satisfying to do this to my pages!

That's my post for today! Thank you for stopping by!
