Field of Dreams

Did everyone enjoy the weekend? With hubbies hip and knee hurting we stayed home and I  made my crafting area a bigger mess than what it started out today!! Some times you get tired of straightening it every day! Back home is Pittsburgh we don't say "did you straighten your room up" instead it is "Did you red up your room?" or "I red up the kitchen" instead of "I cleaned the kitchen". Pittsburgh has it's own dictionary of words! Yinz for you, Gum band for rubber band and the list goes on and on and in a future post, I will name most of them! Anywho, I grew up in Pittsburgh and if you are born and raised in Pittsburgh you don't live anywhere else!! If someone asks me where am I from... I don't say Maryland, Ohio, Michigan or Florida, which are all the states I have lived in...No, I am from Pittsburgh and anyone else from the Burg will tell you the same thing.

Teddy Stampers challenge has to have a teddy bear on it along with the bi-weekly challenge.  The current challenge is "movie inspiration" hmmmm, I looked at my teddy bears and couldn't think of a single movie.  So off shopping we go!  I found the cutest digital image yesterday at Karen Doodles and thought OK!, "Field of Dreams" for they have baseball uniforms on!   As I am ready to color I think ..need to color them black and gold for Pittsburgh Pirates! So I  colored everything  black and gold (yellow) and no DP to match it!  So it is time to get creative here. I found a one piece of  yellow and black ribbon and taped them together and the mojo is kicking in! I found a small piece of black and silver paper and went Yesiree! And,  I am on a roll now until I noticed my black and silver paper has skull and crossbones on it. No problem, I will just cover them up with embellishments and cut my paper so you can't see any of them!! After I had every single skull and crossbones covered!   Yep, it hit me!  What is the name of my home baseball team? Yep, the pirates and what represents pirates....skulls and bones! DUH!  Another half hour uncovering as many as I could!

 Karen Doodles Website has the cutest, funniest and adorable stamps. I just loved them! Their  challenge is to  have dry or wet embossing.  Copics  challenge at Simply Scrapping Crafts  you need to color something black!

All my supplies were from my stash.
Thank you so much for stopping by and looking. Hope I made you smile!
