i *totally* crack me up!

...yes, i am a sad, sad woman...

...not to mention tardy! yepper, tardy and sad...that'd be me. admittedly, i have cut this deadline pretty close, even for me: the fourth challenge over at scrapdragons ends at midnight on sunday. but it's a sketch challenge.... (and you KNOW how i love me some o'those!) ... & the sketch is by erica hilldebrand of sketch it, no less... (those scrapdragons, they are hooked up!) of course, i had to play!

now, to qualify for the big prize, you have to do a layout. being the resident "card diva" at said challenge site, i have no shot at the goodies anyway, and as you know, i am not so much with the layouts; i prefer the cards. plus, i am always up to prove that pretty much ANY sketch can be adapted to any size, shape or medium. so--surprise, surprise--i made a card!

the illustration is from a vintage goldenbook. the minute i saw it, a couple of months ago, the caption popped into my head. it still makes me chuckle everytime i see...or even think...of it. (yes indeedy--very sad; see above.)

(pattern paper: imaginesce; acryllic letters & punctuation: heidi swapp; border & frame stickers: ki & making memories ; question mark sticker: kelly panacci; brads: doodlebug; font: tangerine; other: colorbox ink; foam tape; cardstock)

  4. Hi Lauren,

    You've won a prize in my very unofficial competition! A competition that I didn't even know I was running until last night, when after a couple of glasses of wine I was compulsively checking my blog (as you do) and saw your comments.

    Anyone who is willing to spend 15 minutes trawling through someone's archives for a knitted pants shot definitely deserves a prize!

    Your prize isn't an actual monkee (sorry),but it is monkee related and your niece may like it :)

    If you'd like to claim said prize, can you mail me your address to and I'll pop it in the post to you.

  5. See, this is why I love you and your blog. You always bring a smile to my face. You have a great sense of humor!

  6. Hi Lauren, you crack me up, this card is so, your warped sense of humour! ( I love it! ) I will definately be checking out the scrapdragons site, thanks very much!
