Here’s a peek at the latest way I’ve managed to ignore all my parenting duties…


I ripped right in to the latest delivery of goodness, the new Studio Calico SB kit, Valley High, and got to work on a story I’d been meaning to document from this Spring.

The girls and some neighborhood kids love an impromptu game of 4 Square.  As I watched and snapped video, I was astounded by the ‘terminololgy’ of the game.  The ‘gotcha’, ‘deep water’, ‘tree topper’, ‘shoe shiner’.  And… the layout was born.


Lots of other parts and pieces were added in.  Alot from previous SC kits.  I toyed with the title ALOT.  Almost left it off, but then I settled on inking some chipboard letters with the same stamp pad as I used on the wood veneers.  Though it’s not a perfect match, it works and doesn’t make me cringe when I look at the LO.
