Did you ever see that commercial that says "life's messy, clean it up"? With a husband, two kids a dog and two jobs (paying/non-paying) our house is in a perpetual state of chaos. It totally drives me nuts though because I can't stand messy. But I never have enough time to clean the way I like.
I made this card for ME. Partly because MY GUY IAN from THE GREETING FARM reminds me of my little guy but mostly to remind myself not to sweat the small stuff. And boy is there a ton of small stuff laying around our house to make me sweat!
The locker is a couple of layered rectangles with three, thin black strips. I sponged around the edges and along the upper third to make it look like it had two parts. The lock was made with punched, layered circles.
I wanted it to look like everything was falling out of his locker (like mine used to be) so I used spirals cut from circles pasted to opposite sides of the locker as the base. I saw the technique at SCS somewhere I will have to go find it to post the link, its lots of fun to use. I then attached different school supplies I cut out from a digi kit. I love how this turned out if I do say so myself.
This is a FARM FRESH FRIDAY so I followed this sketch provided by the super talented Farmer Cindy Haffner. If you love TGF (and who doesn't) go participate in the challenge, it's lot of fun and they have great prizes, like more TGF stamps!
Stop back later for S'more projects and have a great day!
