LESSology challenge 12 ~ Photo Block



When I told my daughter Dolce that I need to make a photo block, she gave me this photo


her favorite Laurel and Hardy
Dolce loves movies from the 20s and music from the 40s, sometime I think she is an old lady living in a young body, she can talk about music and movies in those period like no one could, is she really just 16 years old?


now I got the photo, I start looking for things from my stash to altered


this box sure looks like a good item


painted it black and there goes Laurel and Hardy


lots of bits and pieces of patterned paper in black and white


glue it, gesso it


"Things are not always black and white"
I think the quote is pretty good for my stubborn little teenager : )


now paint my little wooden block black with some stamping (for the stand)


adding embellishment



now my little girl can take this photo block with her to college comes September : (



So come play along with us
Our fabulous sponsor for this challenge is



Scrappin' Spots and More


The concept of Scrappin' Sports & More was truly a vision from God in the spring of 2001. It all began when Lois Benham, the owner, went to CHA looking for sports-related product to fill a need in her recently opened scrapbook store. Disappointed that very little product relating to sports was available, her discouragement soon turned to excitement when she realized she could create & manufacture the scrapbooking products she wanted, and sell them to other scrapbook stores as well.

Within 3 months, Scrappin' Sports & More set up as a vendor at their first trade show with 20 different papers, order forms, brochures, etc. The success has grown since then. They have a website, online store, and a blog with a very talented design team.
