CA&F Monday Mania with Caz!

Caz challenged us this week to use Anya/Ian or two other TGF characters as a "couple".  I immediately turned to Guy Ian and Miss Anya, my Guy Ian set has been sadly underused.

I got the paper from the $1 aisle at Target (aka "My Other Home"). The paper caught my eye b/c on there are some CUTE sheets of cupcake patterened paper in it and I love all things cupcakes.  Now you don't see the cupcake paper b/c I'm having a hard time using it even though I bought three packs of the paper and that breaks down to like $0.13 a sheet.  I have issues, leave me alone ;0)

Did some slight altering - Took the plaid off Ian's shirt (don't look too close, it didn't all come off, lol) and changed Miss Anya's shorts to a skirt and took the argyle off her socks.

TGF Stamps- Guy Ian, Miss Anya
Paper - Target $1 aisle
Martha Stewart Scallop 3 Dot border punch
Nestabilities - Mega Curved Rectangles
"Love" brad - Target $1 aisle.

Rachel this is truly wonderful, i love it. Such pretty papers and your altering is awesome (I did look very closely, and couldn't see any left over pattern, so you did a better job than you thought :) ) I love the prima, and that brad is gorgeous, works brilliantly, a great take on the challenge.

Hi Rachel! This is SO cute! Your altering is excellent - I agree with Suzi, I don't see any leftover traces! I can't help but giggle - With his eyes all closed like they are and Miss Anya with her shopping bags, I hear that big patient, but not so patient Man-sigh coming from Ian over all of this time shopping!!
I have those same paper issues - I am doing my own form of therapy trying to use that much loved stuff!! :-)Traci

Those papers are really fun, I can see why you love them so much and they look great with this super cute couple! And I had the exact same thought Traci did with Ian 'patiently' waiting on her to finish up shopping LOL! Wonderful card Rach and your altering looks fab!

Totally fantastic Rachel. Love the bigger Anya and Ian together as a couple. Yes, I love that paper too. Beautiful card girl. Hugs!!
