Paper Smooches- Summer Challenge

I had a couple of new to me Paper Smooches stamp sets in my new drawer.  I thought that this month’s challenge would be an opportunity to try them out. The problem was that one of them had absolutely nothing to do with the subject of summer.  It is the stamp set called Off the Charts and has graphs and pie charts and the like.  It looked more like school than a beach!  What to do?  Using the”Got Lemons, Make Lemonade” philosophy, I decided to make a scene depicting “Summer School”!

In the end, I pulled out just about every Paper Smooches stamp set I have, to pull together this card.  I have to mention that the stamp set Great Chemistry from Paper Smooches gets my personal award for versatility.  I have made the Chemistry Professor into every one from a monster, to Mark Twain and to today’s Beach Bum.

In fact, I am going to post the Mark Twain card here today as well.  My co-blogger Sandra told me that I was probably the only person in the world, that would see the humour in this card.  Probably, has something to do with my interest in the history of English literature, which is not a wildly popular subject among cardmakers.  Anyway, she was right as it did not get picked for publication on a theme about Mark Twain quotes……………………sigh.

Still and all, my little Chem Prof is pressed into service today as a hairy-legged beach bum, and I think he is adorbs.


Here he is in his role as Mark Twain.  He even LOOKs like Mark Twain!
