In Character

I really wanted to do a layout for this week's challenge at The Paper Variety, since it's my off week. The challenge is to create a humorous paper project.

I really had a hard time trying to figure out what to do. I didn't think I could find any humorous photos for a layout. I was trying to think of a humorous card. Then, as luck would have it, Jackie posted a funny photo of my son, David on Facebook. He was playing is video game, while wearing his helmut from Iraq. He had to be in character after all.

I also wanted to use a sketch. I really loved the one for this month's challenge at Artful Delight.

I want to try to get all of the monthly challenges done at the Yahoo Group Scrappin'-n-Chattin' this month. So I incorporated the color challenge into this layout. The challenge is to use brown, red and gold or yellow on the page. Other colors can be used, but most of the colors have to be brown, red and gold.

The papers are from various Air Force collections I have. The cardstock was from my stash, as was the gold vellum I used for the stars. The Thickers are actually from the November Artful Delight kit. I can't wait to really get into that kit. I am using this layout as my entry into the 52 Week Challenge this week at SnC. Week #45. I cannot believe I have been able to create a page every week this year. I imagine that's what's helping to keep my sanity.

Well, it looks like I may be getting out of cooking dinner. So I better do at least some type of housework, and ponder my other projects for the week. I hope everyone has been able to get crafty this weekend too.
