Who Are You...Who...oo...Who...oo

I think this song is a good one by the Who and it's running through my head as I write this post. Sharing the video (I'm assuming this hair means the video was recorded in the 70s) just in case you're not getting the song I'm thinking's the theme song to the original CSI, if you watched that.

It's a different Who I'm thinking of today, since I did a Dr. Who layout yesterday. I put a bunch of related pics on a page to show how Dr. Who has invaded our lives through the years. My daughter was a Dalek at Halloween, she had a Who birthday cake one year (I made it before I even started watching the show, she gave me the highlights and I looked up what a Tardis looked like) and the little stone angels are pound cake cut with a cookie cutter. My son took his Sonic Screwdriver to his get his photo taken and asked for Who gifts for a later birthday. Seriously, lots of Who stuff here.

I started with the paper and die cut from Scrap Your Trip. It was the only place I found Dr. Who related scrap paper (except digi paper). The quality is good and they were on time with their products. The Dalek and word 'exterminate" are theirs, the Tardis and "hello sweetie" came from Viva Las Vegastamps. They have the best fun stamps and naked rubber if you need to save money. The set I got with the police box has great Dr. Who phrases (fish fingers & custard) and images (bow tie, weeping angels). If you're a Who fan, check these sites out.

I'm entering it over at Viva Las Vegastamps for their February challenge. 

The rainbow swirl reminded me of the time vortex swirl from the show. I didn't use the whole rainbow, but used these colors together (Picked Raspberry and Salty Ocean alcohol inks) on acetate to make the swirl, stamped the police box and colored with Prismacolor pencils and then cut it out and popped it up on the design. It was originally a card, but I thought it would go on this page perfectly.

Oh, and hey, Happy Bagel Day today! Love bagels and they are actually easy to make, so if you're interested, here's a recipe. I love homemade bread and these bagels are no exception. They're not fast (you gotta let them rise) but they're fun to make and then be all like, "yeah, I made those from scratch."

Happy Monday!


I love hearing from my crafty friends!
