Sugar Creek Hollow Challenge

Hi there!
Welcome to another Sensational Saturday at Sugar Creek Hollow
This week we want you to make vintage, shabby chic or primitive projects with the theme...
 Vintage Children!

We have a wonderful sponsor this week...
  TLC CREATIONS
They will be giving the winner a $10 gift certificate to their store! 

TLC generously provided our team each with an image for today - mine is called "Vintage Leap Frog"
Love it - do kids even play that any more ...kinda hard to leap frog with 
cellphone, computer or ipods     KWIM LOL

I envisioned this happening while in recess at school - kept them all in uniforms since that is what so many schools required back in the vintage days (no I wouldn't know!)...love the pups getting all excited too!

colored with Copics: E00,7, 9, 11, 31,33, 29, 74...W1, 4, 7, sponged edges with Ranger's Distress Rusty Hinge, image is matted on a bright blue but kept it very narrow, designer paper from THoltz with scraps from Graphics 45, white embossed my letters (letters I've had for years, they are mini peg stamps that were purchased from Michael's, lost paper with name a long time ago) onto black card stock and punched with Stampin Up punch - adhered with pop dots.

You know I tend to keep embellishments simple unless a challenge requires I load it up (-:
We're going to top 100 degrees today ....nothing for my stampin buddy Vicki  wavin to ya ! they deal with that in Arizona all the time...so i wont be going there anytime soon LOL
but for this ole gal - staying near my wonderful AC!

Praying for everyone dealing with the horrible fires and all the Florida flooding....the heat seems so minor.....

hugs
