Freaky and Fun


I have a fun layout to share that was submitted at From Screen 2 Scrap for their April Inspiration from the Movie Poster "Freaky Friday."

Here's the Movie Poster:


1 pt = Green and Purple cardstock
 2 pts = The word "FREAKY" in your title
 3 pts = A cut out figure(s) on your page

Here's what I created.  I know the criteria was to use purple and green cardstock, but I decided to go ALL purples and greens!
 These were photos taken from the window of "Ripley's Believe it or Not" in San Antonio several years ago.  Our grandson was totally excited to see all these "strange" things and wanted me to take some photos.

I used all 3 of the criteria on my page.

Supplies used:
Paper: Colorbok
Perfect Pearls Mist
Home Made Purple Mist
Mister Huey's Color Mist
Glitter Gems: Home Made
Stampin' Up! Border Punch
Sharpie Marker
3 Different Letter Stickers for my Title
Sketch: Page Maps (Apr 2007)

Here's my flower grouping.  I wasn't going to add flowers on my page... but when I decided on the title "Freaky and Fun" I had to add flowers because they're "fun!"  :)
The glitter gems are home made and I also added a few smaller gems around the flowers.

I used puffy letters, glitter letters and sticker letters for my title.  Thought I'd make my title a little "fun!"  :)

 All paper edges were distressed and the journaling was added under the flowers.

Here's my freaky cut out!  Our grandson insisted I take photos of this "creature" in the window, and waited and watched me to be sure I took some!

I cut a strip of cardstock to look like grass, then distressed and scrunched it.

I dripped the purple mist that I made.  It worked well because it was a bit thick.  I held the page upright and tapped it on my desk to get the drips.

A closer look at my cute glitter gems.

Here's a better look at the ink drips and title letters.

 Have a wonderful day!


  1. Kids get a bit fixated on things sometimes don't they? I love your purple and green page. Great choice to use just those colours. Your techniques are fun and add a lot as well.

  2. Nothing quite like some weird and wonderful Libby - another great page with lots of fun elements.

  3. I love your page Libby! Filled with fun & interest...love the way you have put it all together! Great page!! Thanks for playing along at FS2S.

  4. Great LO with lots of detail! LOL at your grandson watching & waiting to be sure you got a photo of 'Predator'!! Awesome title work her too...great mash up of alphas! :D
