Hi everyone! I am back in town. After 8 nights in the city of love, hubby and I are back at home and currently as I am typing this post, my baby boy is snuggling on my lap. LOL, I think he was sulking a bit last night as at first he refuse to sleep by my side, choosing to sleep by my feet instead (which he never did). But after a few hours, he finally forgave me for being away and back to snuggle by my side.
I have tons of pictures, which I still have to sorted through. So, most likely those pics won't get shared anytime soon as right now I have lots of homework. :)
But, before the trip I know I want to try out for Paper Crafts Gallery Idol again. I made this card before I left.
Lots of details in this card (click on the pic to see it in larger details). I first cut out the train shape using my lovely Mr. Q (my oldie but goodie Silhouette SD). For the back of the card, I simply removed all the train elements and cut only the outline. Then I assembled all the front train pieces one by one and for fun and trendy addition I used sequins for the center of the wheels.
You know me and my love for cute animal stamps, so of course I have to add some to this card. There comes the giraffe and purple hamster. And since I love using banners and bright colors add those to the mix as well.
Then, I was like, hmm... choo-choo train without smoke is not quite complete. So, I die-cut a cloud and attached it to a skinny strip of acetate and adhere the cloud die-cut so it looks as if steam coming out from the train. Voila.... my card for 2013 Gallery Idol audition.
What do you think? Do I stand a chance? All I know I have a blast creating this card and that's one thing that I want to always remember. To have fun. When you love what you're doing and enjoy it, it'll show. Now all I can do is cross my fingers and hope for the best.
With that note, I think I'll take a nap. Jet lag settling in. :) It is so good to be home again. Travel story coming soon.
