The Great Outdoors!

At Frilly and Funkie, we are celebrating "The Great Outdoors" and this week, it is the Funkie Team's turn to play outside!  A quote about "outdoors or nature" is a requirement, so come on and join in and enjoy some fresh air!   There is some incredible inspiration over at Frilly and Funkie from both the Frilly and Funkie DT, so go feast your eyes! 
Opps, I am Missing One Photo Corner!
Before I start on the inspiration for my DT challenge piece, I currently am having a blog candy giveaway to celebrate reaching the 400 follower mark!  So if you would like to participate, please click HERE!  The winners will be announced tomorrow!  I used a GIANT black tag, because I wanted to incorporate some photos from our recent trip to Green Bay and I kept it all nature based.  I was very impressed with the beauty of the state of Wisconsin and that was my inspiration!  The photos were printed on photo paper, cut and then I added the photo corners.   I learned one pretty cool trick about stamping on black and if you use a tan/ivory/vanilla craft ink and then clear emboss, it turns a cool shade of blue!  Take a look at the map! For the edging and plane, I used craft white and white embossing powder!  The plane was stamped and cut for little added depth.  The stamps are all Tim's and the compass was bleach stamped.  This was fun to put together and a great reminder of celebrating our son's birthday and a visit with Vada, which I will cherish always!
There will be a random draw for a $25 gift certificate to The Funkie Junkie Boutique as well as a DT best project competition for a Winner's Badge!  Someone always wins and it could be you, so come on and join in!!

Thank you so much for stopping by and taking the time to comment!  Have a great week and get outdoors!

What a super tag to commemorate your special trip! And you got the plane right-side up... very impressive! Thanks for sharing that neat tip about the stamping/embossing on black, too. Will try that!

What an ingenious way to show off some of your fabulous photos Terry. The embossing on black and your cool trick are great and I love the words.
Hope your week is going well my friend.

A song has popped into my head. When I was a child there was a song called "I'm Leaving On A Jet Plane" not sure who sang it (need to Google) and your tag has brought that song to mind.
This is fabulous Terry.
