When Nature Attacks

Finally got the chance to work with my DCWV Green Stack some more and I am still just lovin' that paper! The colors are great and it is just too cute. Plus, I don't have to feel so guilty since it is recycled! LOL!
These photos crack me up everytime I see them. They were taken on the University of Texas campus in Austin last August. TJ and I had walked to the car to get something out. On our way back from the parking garage this squirrel just runs at us out of nowhere. I started cracking up, but my son got all freaked out! He was convinced the squirrel was stalking him and going to "jump" him! LOL!! It was too funny so naturally I pulled out my camera and got a few quick shots before TJ took off running.....from a squirrel. When I was doing this layout he came in the room and said, "that is the squirrel that tried to attack me. Man, he was psycho!" I still can't quite convince him that the squirrel was probably just really, really used to people and was hoping we would feed it. I never have mentioned to him that I too thought I might have caught a devilish gleam in the little critter's eyes!

I used the George cart for the word 'attack' and Opposites Attract for the rest of the title. All the paper is by DCWV, except for the green gingham, which is by Making Memories, and the black cardstock, it is by Bazzill. The cute little bear is some Basic Grey adhesive chipboard I painted, as is the arrow, and the grass I cut myself. Pop-dotted it all for 3-D effect. The circle I cut using my Cuttlebug. Not sure who the ribbon is by since I got it in a swap, but I did use my white Sakura pen to dot the word 'when' and the word 'nature' event though it didn't show up that well in the photo. The journaling tag is Heidi Swapp and was in the V-Day can I got from Snoflak. Thanks sweetie! Oh, I also used a Page Maps template for this layout - gotta love Page Maps!

Hoping to get another layout done soon that deals with yet another squirrel story and my son. It's a little happy, a little sad, but super sweet. Maybe I will get it done next week because bright and early in the morning we are off to the races. NASCAR here we come!!!!

Happy Scrapping!
