Mo' Challenge # 34

Are We Having Fun Yet?!

For this challenge, Sheila, our hostess this month, asked us to use Mo's images and merge two or more together on our project. There are several programs and tutorials out there that can be used to achieve this. I use PrintMaster and find it fairly easy and not too technical.. It's just a matter of sizing your images proportionately and 'erasing' the parts you don't want. You can also do it the old-fashioned way and just cut out one or both of the images and arrange them in a little scene.
I've used two images from a cute set of four ornery little ones.....Jill, Toby, Marcus, and Tasha
I want to use the little guy pitching a fit for my youngest son's birthday card. He turns 32 this month, and this was sooo him when he was a toddler! He will get a kick out of it.
(I have to say that he turned out to be a wonderful young man, though at the time, I wasn't sure I'd let him live to grow up!!)
The inside says, "Things can only get better!" 
As usual, the images were colored with Copics and Prismacolor Pencils.

Sentiment Stamp---PrintWorks
Card Stock,---SU!'s Rich Razzleberry, Garden Green, Pale Plum, Wild Wasabi
DP---Basic Grey Kioshi
Punch---Martha Stewart Hydrangea
Die---Sizzix Branch 
Embossing folder---Cuttlebug
Embellishments---Prima roses, pearl cabochons

So, let's see what wonderful scenes you can create using Mo's fabulous images!
Thanks for stopping in!

Hi Elaine and thanks for the lovely comment you left me. I see that you used the same images I did but yours are merged and coloured so much better than mine. That is the look I strive to achieve so thank yu for the inspiration
