Rainbow Connection...

We all know the Muppets right? Well I loved them as a kid, The Muppet Show was one of my favourites (now I'm showing my age). In fact I loved it so much I pestered my dad day and night to get me muppet wallpaper that his boss sold in his shop. Eventually my dad gave in but on one condition, that it was only on one wall - like I cared, I was having the Muppets in my room.

So my dad works hard to get this wallpaper up and I am tucked in for bed for the night and the door is left open a crack and the light from the hall is shining on the wall. The result was the shapes turning from my beloved Muppets to horrible, horrible monsters.  I ran from the room screaming.
I don't remember what my parents did to convince me otherwise but eventually they managed to get me to sleep in there again.

Anyway I snapped this picture of a rainbow a while back and I wanted to use it for a couple of challenges, one was Studio Calico's CHA challenge to make a bold title. The other thing I wanted to do was to use up some of my brads so I was inspired by the Two Peas in A Bucket Scrap Your Stash series. Once I printed the photo out I could see it needed something else so I altered it digitally. This is the result:



Also just wanted to let you know the Life. Paper. Scrapbook. is having it's first sketch challenge from today and the DT call is still running and we are always looking for submissions for our first issue in March.

Have an awesome day,
