Totally Busted

I love to participate in card challenges, which I'm sure you've figured out if you've spent any amount of time here at Snapdragon Stamps.  When it comes to scrapbooking, though, I prefer to just do my own thing and not try to fit my photos into challenges.  My scrappy muse is temperamental.  Every once in a while, though, a challenge just speaks to me, like this one from Cupcake Inspirations:

I have the perfect set of photos for a comic book scrapbook layout, so I set to work.

The pictures are from when my family came out to visit us and this was their last day in London; they got involved in an undercover police operation and helped subdue some dude who was high as a kite after he ran from the po-po and crashed into Laura.  You can read the whole story here or maybe if you click on the photo it might be big enough to read on the layout.  The border on the left page was cut off some patterned paper I bought, and the red mat on the left page is part of the piece that the Avengers came out of on the right page.

My color palette, and I think this might be the first time EVER that I've used Yoyo Yellow!  What's funny is I'd picked out these four colors, then went to the craft store to find some appropriate comic book paper.  Is it bad that I ignored the four sheets of Superman paper I had in my stash to go find something with the Avengers on it?  I'm more a Marvel girl than DC, though DC does have Wonder Woman and I love her.  Not that I read many comic books anymore, but I'm a huge fan of the Marvel Cinematic Universe and DC just hasn't done that great with Superman lately, and they haven't done anything with Wonder Woman yet, so Marvel is where it's at for my money.  Anyway, I picked out these colors, then went out shopping, and happily for me the colors worked with the paper I brought home.  Yay!

That's it for me today, peeps.  Have a great day...Pow!
