A Cyber Crop LO!

Despite being sick, I did manage a little burst of mojo today and completed a challenge for the Scrapbooking Top 50 'Lights, Camera, Action!' Cyber Crop. Once I had an idea of what I could scrap for Ant's '5 Minutes of Fame' challenge, it all came together fairly quickly (besides waiting for the paint to dry! LOL) For this challenge we had to scrap about someone's '5 mins of fame' and I couldn't go past my debut as a 'page 3 girl' (yes, I was in a bikini! LOL) when this article appeared on page 3 of the newspaper here back in December 2002...


I used a sheet of Graphic 45 pp I had here for this LO, and kept the embellishments fairly simple with a chipboard button & mini yoyo flower from Burdy's Embellies, gorgeous pin from A Little Bit fANTsy, and a Wicked Princesses My Vintage Blossoms doiley...


Here is a copy of the article (you should be able to click on it to read it). It still makes me laugh!!!
