serious times call for serious layouts


These pages are scraplifts for a couple of the Inspiration Found Challenge at splitcoaststampers.
I chose beautifully sparse pages from Trish OBrien and aprildawn (just click on their names to go to their galleries).

under the sea, under the sea....

Yup, I've had that song in my head for a couple of days now!
Here's why:

I've been playing with the mermaid stamp and the rest of the Bad Girls Scrapbook Kit from this month. At first, I wasn't sure that I'd be able to do anything with it, but I took inspiration from Pattie's Variety Challenge at splitcoaststampers this week and changed it up a bit to make these cards. I kinda like them :)
If you get one of these in the mail, please act surprised to see it!

she may look classier than the rest of her family...

... but once she laughs, she's one of us :)
The laugh we inherited goes something like this: honk, honk, schnort - think Canadian Geese and pigs.

(This is a scraplift of a challenge layout by Katy Godbeer in Scrapbook Magazine last fall.)
