I decided that I need to get some more LO's done. I also decided that I can not make every LO a psuedo masterpiece or I am never going to get caught up with about 7 years of backlog (just of the kids). So, I use the CTMH Cherish layout book for most of these LO's. I also used a SU Simply Scrappin Kit called Primary Colors that way I could keep out just a few certain colors of embellishments. I had a set of Star Wars rub-ons that really helped a lot, and a couple of pieces of Star Wars orange paper as well. My favorite embellishment though is my own light sabers. I used the SU word window punch - punched out a piece in black and cut it in half, cut out another piece in one of the saber colors, then I hand trimmed the colored part at an angle to make it look like a saber. My 7 year old DS thought they were pretty cool! I pop-dotted one of each color so it gives more of a fighting effect.
As I was uploading these I noticed the color really bloomed out for some reason..strange I wasn't using a flash either. You can see the true color best in the close-up of the blue light sabers. Sorry I don't have time to re-do pics. :(
