Pushmobile 2012: Part 1

Happy Holly-Day Friday
Can you believe I made another Scrap Page?  I am getting all kinds of inspiration and motivation to do these from my Bloggy Friends, Yvonne and Tracey.  Of course they are at much more advanced levels than I am, lol.  But hey, I have to start somewhere, lol. 
It all begins with a great sketch for me.  If I have a starting point, then I can pick and choose my elements.  And even flip it around a little if I need to, lol, like the journaling tag.  I have so many pictures and events I NEED to Scrap and journal.  I am looking for a good photo printer.  It needs to be affordable, but print out decent pictures.  All my pictures are printing darker than what they are showing on screen and even if I adjust them, they are still coming out to dark.  So any suggestions?
I wanted to keep with this weeks Challenge at Loves Rubberstamps.  "Lets Get Krafty".  Kraft and one other color.  Most of my supplies are centered around cards, so I was so happy with myself that I had some 12X12 Kraft and some perfect designer papers in 12X12.  I added the light blue card stock as my one other color.  All are from S.U. My little Scout P.I. is from MFT's and I stamped him with Memento Black Ink and colored him with Copics.  I used a sentiment stamp from MFT's for my journaling tag.  I also used some Die-namic's: By The Letter Upper and By The Letter Lower Case, By The Number, and Tool Time.  I used my Ritz Card Candi Dots on the sides.  And I glued it all down with The Best Glue Ever!  Remember, if you do not see what you are looking for in the store, just send Laura an email and she will let you know how soon she can get that for you.
A couple weekends ago, our Cubscout Den got together to start building the Pushmobile.  Pushmobile races are next weekend.  My husband is the Den Leader and one of the gals at work saw the first picture and called him, The Pied Piper of Carpentry, lol.  Sometimes the Scouts bring their whole family and that is what's so great about all the Cubscouts Events, not only does it help the boys, it brings whole families together to do projects together.  And with every one's help, we got the base made and painted!  I don't know if you can see their feet, but that is my ghetto version of shoe protectors, lol.  Thankfully I save all my plastic bags from the grocery stores.  But with all things comes a lot of planning and a lot of work.  Sometimes my dear husband is stretched so thin he wonders if anything he is doing is making a difference.  So when he can't see the forest through the trees, that is where I come in to help him see that he has made a BIG Impact on their lives.

This is wonderful Holly. I love all the detailing.

Sorry I can't help you with the printer.
I hope you have a good weekend

Oh girl, this is a gorgeous page. Much more professional than my first book, lol. My first pages may as well have been made by my 3 year old GrandBaby. And I haven't had a printer for about a year and I miss using Digi's.
Have a wonderful day!
Hugs, Dangina
