Fishing Take Me Away - I'm TIRED of Winter - It's a Winter Get-AWAY Challenge at Open Minded Crafting Fun

It's Mid-Way Posting time at Open Minded Crafting Fun Challenges with "Winter Get-AWAY" theme for Challenge 32.

For this challenge, the fabulous sponsors are: 

I'm sew over winter with the cold, ice, and snow. It's time to get away and go up to the cabin and get some fishing done. NOW, I don't mean to brag but over Memorial Day last year, I got a big fish even bigger than Bob ever caught - no fish tale!!! Thus Polka Doodles Winston Bear Goes Fishing became the creative mojo for my lay-out for brace yourselves, an actual picture of me and my fish!!!

  • lay-out is on Reel and Rod Collage Paper by Karen Foster Design
  • Winston Bear was colored using Prisma Colored Pencils, Whisper Strokes markers, chalk with gel pen accents which was then fussy-cut around the edges and puff-dotted onto lay-out - isn't he a cutie?

  • Jolee stickers were used for added embellishments which had been given to me by a dear friend, Janet Smith

  • lettering was done using Cricut Plantin Cartridge and cream cardstock
  • photos were matted on scraps of green/blue plaid with dark blue recollection cardstock 
I can't wait to see what your creations are. Don't forget to link your projects for a chance to win from the fabulous sponsors!!!!!

I appreciate and love reading your comments . . is your comment the next one I read??? 

Much love, hugs, and friendship
