Ever feel funky and quirky?

Hey everyone!  Do you ever get in one of those moods where you want your next project to really convey the funky, quirky mood you’re in?  Well, I felt that way today.

While the rest of the papers for me to finish my birdhouses came today, I was feeling quirky and really wanted to do something DIFFERENT!  Different for me.  Different than my “normal” style.  I wanted to just break loose and bust out of the box I have been in.  While I love working within product lines, I also want to step out of the linear and into the zig-zag!

Last week, I had received the color kits and a major kit I had ordered from Gauche Alchemy.  Now, if you love random, quirky and atypical, then this is the kit club for you!  I had ordered 4 color kits in which the little goodies are all within a specific color family.  The kit I ordered was full of the fun and whimsy I have been wanting to play with!  Talk about amazing stuff.

For my page today, I used bits and pieces from my orange and yellow kits as well as the big ‘un.  I wanted to scrap a really funny and messy picture of my youngest, Julia.  She’s gnawing on a teething cookie for the first time and just LOVED it!  And it shows!

I paired my fun embellishments with Sassafras Lass’s “Ellie’s Tale”.  Yes!  That is a toy figurine there on the left and a cardboard VW Bus!  How freaking cool is that??!!  The swirls by the bus are cut from a playing card and the blue embossed piece is METAL!  Of course, I’m down for anything with punchinella!  I used Echo Park’s Dots & Stripes line for the background and splattered some white Adirondack paint.

I love the fun, messy, disorganized feel this page has and I can’t wait to do another one!  If you are a lover of quirky, atypical, random and straight up out of the box shiz, then I implore you to check out Gauche Alchemy.  I definitely plan on being a regular over there for sure!
