Showing PBS Some Love!

Hey, everyone. WOW! I can't believe how fast this semester has gone. Only 3 more weeks of class. I did advisement already. Lots of new classes coming in Spring. Right now, I'm on Thanksgiving break until next Monday. I'm doing really well in all my classes. Nothing less than a B.

As for today, I make some charms from clay and did some scrapping. There is a polymer clay contest on YouTube that I really wanted to enter so I made some charms for it. I've working on the Teletubbies for a while. I made Tinky Winky and La La last week and today I made Dipsy and Po. They turned out alright. I wanted to make sure that Po was slightly smaller than the rest. He was my favorite Teletubby when I was little.

Since Teletubbies was a show on PBS, I tried to think of another PBS show that I could use since the contest needs at least 5 charms. I was originally going to make Clifford the Big Red Dog but I was thinking of a show that I watched when I was younger and came up with The Big Comfy Couch. I was always watching it when I was in the hospital. I think I even had a Molly doll. So I made a chibi Loonetta holding a chibi Molly doll. I think it is by far the cutest charm I have made so far.

Lastly, I have been wanting to make a baby book for Kiely for a while but I don't print pictures very often so I didn't have any pics to put in it. Recently, I was in a swap that required pictures so I printed some pics of Kiely while I was printing pics for the swap. Now, I can finally make a baby book for Kiely. Today, I started making the book. I already have a book with chipboard pages that I won last Scrapbook day from Scrapbook.com and I'm using that for her book. I jest made the title page today.

I used two Cricut cartridges for this page. Kiely's name is cut using Kate's ABCs. I just discovered the Cricut Craft Room so I used that to weld the letters together. The dog is cut using my newest cartridge, Create a Critter. I tried to make the dog look like Kiely right down to the pink collar with white spots. I also put her in a little pink shirt. I think the pink damask paper is by Pink Paisley I put a wide strip of white ribbon across the middle and added a flower that I inked with pink ink. You can't see it in the picture, but I put glossy accents on Kiely's nose and eyes. I'll probably work on some more pages this week since I have no school. If I do, I'll post pics for you. That's it for today. TTFN. Ta ta for now.
