Having Brains Is Over Rated! Pretty Paper, Pretty Ribbon

Having Brains Is Over Rated
 Ok! It's finally my day to share this! Easily one of my favorite EVER pages! This page was created for my Pretty Paper, Pretty Ribbon Design Team day…what a way to start the week! Yay! 
 I spoke on my last post day for PPPR about using really big elements on your scrapbook page and I think this certainly shows the impact that can have! The photo is a standard 4x6 so you know these zombie kids are cut really big! Did you notice…they look almost exactly like my kids? LOL! 
 I started with a subtle grey and white striped background and then inked the edges. What normally would look like a bad inking job has a smoky, foggy look that lends well to the eerie feeling I was going for. You'll see that better in some of the photos coming up. 
 There is a lot of detail so please feel free to click on the photo's to enlarge them! If you do so then you'll make me feel better about the time it took to ink everything!!! LOL!!!

 I added my sentiment using free fonts downloaded from and added some Girls Paperie stickers affixed with my mini stapler. I'll also take this moment to tell you how hard it was to find scraps that I wanted for these darn outfits…I swear I never take that long to get dressed myself! Ha!

 And these are the files I used, you can click on the title below the photos to go directly to the shop for each cutting file.
