Around The House

Good morning Bloggers!

It's another Challenge Day!

Today's ScrapFit Challenge is called "Around The House".

The challenge is to use something you have around the house either in a technique or as an embellishment on your page.

As a long-time preschool teacher, I am pretty much the Queen of making Masterpieces out of trash.

I debated long & hard about how to approach this challenge.

There are soooo many options.  

I could use-- well, almost anything to paint or stamp with:
*Dish wands
*Mesh shower scrubbies
*Crumpled Newspaper or Tin Foil
*A rolling pin wrapped in rubber bands

I finally settled on making a page for my BOM using something that's ALWAYS around the house!
 Supplies: Cardstock: DCWV, PP: Bo Bunny, Pigment Ink: Ink It Up!, Flowers: Prima, Cricut Cartridge: Quarter Note, Other: Stickles,Ric Rac

Yup- those are footprints on the cardstock.  

And yes, they really are mine.

I just took off my flippies, inked up the bottom of my foot just like you would a child's & stepped on the cardstock. 

(I did get quite a bit of ink on the floor while doing this so I would recommend that you do this on  a tiled or wood surface for cleaning purposes.  Or, you could just not have 4 kids under the age of 2 crawling on you while you do it. Then you could do it where ever you want.)

Mostly, this page is just very very ME. 

But I also thought it would be neat for my great-grandkids to see what my footprints looked like.

Imagine if you had footprints or fingerprints from your ancestors.  How cool would that be?

I plan on doing a fingerprint page to go with this one.

In the mean time, I'm packing a bag & getting geared up for GASC Arlington this weekend.

I've lived here in Dallas more than 4 years now, but this will be my first time.

I can't wait!  

I'll be back early next week with lots of pics!

In the mean time, don't forget to check out the ScrapFit site (linked above) for lots more "Around The House" inspiration and a chance to win a great prize from Scrapbook Circle!
