I imported them into iPhoto and noticed just how funny they were and saw the story unfold. I chose the four that seemed to tell the *oldest horse joke in the world, and printed them. Didn't get the picture I wanted, but that's ok! I still got some fun shots.
As for scrapping these pics, I knew I wanted to go with the colors in her dress and use a background piece that had a tie-dye, girly-grunge look. As I was "thumbing through" hoards of paper I ran across this piece I had made awhile back practicing some background techniques! Ahhhh, perfect!!
Inspired by the Splat challenge over at Heart 2 Heart, I got the new CTMH watercolors out and added splattered pink and blue down the middle like the sketch from Stuck?Sketches. I also painted the strip across the middle to match her dress.
The heart, horseshoes, and title font came from the CTMH Artistry cartridge. The remaining cuts are from Graphically Speaking.
I'm sending my LO and joke off to the following challenges:
Heart 2 Heart: Splat ~ Watercolor pink and blue with the horseshoes

Moral of this post: Remember, we don't always get what we set out to achieve, but the open mind can see something even better ----- like a fun story to share!
