YES! You are the right page! I just have a new name! :) After realizing that I do more than just scrapbooking, I've decided to change the name and will be changing the look.. I'd do a whole new blog but I'd hate to have to start all over.
Here you will find scrapbooking ideas. There's a ton of older posts that used the Cricut, but lately I haven't been using it much and well, my sewing machine is gaining more miles by the day.

30" Paper Doll

What happens when someone requests a 30" Football paper doll that needs to be painted onto a wall, and there is only one room in the house that hasn't been painted to test it out before it gets sent to it's final destination?? It ends up on one of the kids's walls. LOL. I've got a friend who is doing her Son's room in Viking colors, and she saw my valentines from 2 years ago with the mini Farve. She asked if I could make it bigger and be able to trace it to paint on to the wall. Since she's coming to town tomorrow, thought I'd get cracking on it.
I used PDDU and Design Studio to blow up a body and then had to line all the corresponding pieces so that it would be a good fit. Then, I cut it out of Mat Board and taped all the pieces together. Since I wanted to be sure that everything would fit as needed, and it helps to have a visual aid, I traced it onto an empty wall in Jordan's room.

Then, using Acrylic paint that I had on hand, Adrian Peterson was painted. It didn't take too long to paint and let him dry, and when Jordan decides on a color for his room, it can be covered up... but I'm hoping that he'll keep it and we can use molding to make a "frame" around him :) We'll see.. he's not much of a Vikings fan, but maybe he'll grow on him...
