Hello Dooers!! I hope you are enjoying this... Spring (?) weather! The colder days HAVE made room for some crafty time and I hope you too have been able to play with your favorite scrappy items while trying to stay warm and away from allergy-inducing pollen!
It was great to see some of my favorite scrappy people when I visited the Doo's Luau crop at the Crowne Plaza last weekend! It definitely looked like lots of fun and there are some... tropical looking pictures floating around facebook that highlight some of the more fun moments! :) If you missed the festivities, it's not too late to celebrate Christmas in July with the Doo at the next action-packed weekend crop!
One of my favorite parts of the Scrap A Doodle Doo crops are the themes... Stephanie, Mama Doodle, and Mark go all out when they plan these crops and they include everything from props to lifesize decorations to yummy goodies and fun giveaways.
The October Destination Hollywood crop was no exception... From a red carpet to the paparrazi, the Doo Crew went all out with Hollywood style fun! Each participant at the crop was gifted with a really cool giveaway featuring Reminisce's Hollywood Paparazzi and Lights, Camera, Action papers as well as their Hollywood 3D Sticker Sheet and some fun holographic stars to help commemorate the event.
The scrappy goodies came in very handy when I sat down to scrap Melanie's Hollywood Sleepover party... I have to admit that I borrowed Steph's idea of having a red carpet paparazzi event and had the girls walk on the red carpet for a photo shoot shown here:
For this two page layout, I cut the Paparazzi paper in half so it could stretch to a two page layout with the red carpet in the center, and then I added black and red Bazzil cardstock to mat the picture and remaining portions of the page. Then I added the footlights that were at the top of the Paparazzi paper as well as some of the words rom the Lights, Camera, Action paper to add some interest to the layout. I finished up with the little stars that were included in the goodie bag and the three dimensional stickers for embellishment and titles... but of course, I had to stickle them up to give 'em extra pop! :)
