This is what that Sam in Trouble (heat-embossed digital image) turned into:
These sketch books are really affordable (often under $1o.00 for artist's quality books at your local art supply.) I can't ever get enough of colouring Mo's art at any time--add an excuse to scribble with crayons...and I just giggle myself silly! ;o)

Dear FABulous Readers,
You'd think I was ultra emotional or something (well, um, Yeah!) but really it's just that you are all astoundingly kind & generous. You put up with my sicky scheduling, and my hairbrainedness and then the lovely things you say! BLUSH. How did you get so SWEET!?! ;o)
There aren't words enough to thank you, but Thank You
from the bottom of my heart!
This project is for the newest 'Varks challenge....

There are some super sweet creations on their blog here
They have a blog hop coming up on Dec. 10th--all the info is here.
and it's a colour challenge:
Don't these colours make you drool? hehehe
(how I got Sam in a circle with no crayon drawings):
- Start with digital frame freebie from 2 peas "Thrilling October kit" by Cherie Mask here (You need to log in, but membership is free & they share many free kits.)
- Erase owl from Thrilling frame (Bad me, sorry sweet little owl)
- Save a copy of Mo's Digital Pencil [Sam in trouble] to resize how you like (to fit in the frame.)
- Copy Sam from it & paste Sam in the middle of the circle frame
- Erase crayon drawings (Sorry Mo's cuties--by permission of Mo) :o)

...make a mess with Crayons, beads, inky-ness
and cut & paste:
Next, I scribbled allover the walls with my crayons. I love crayons! Do You?
Then...coloured Sam. (I used Copic markers on a blender pen to get pastel shades, because I'm too cheap to buy the pastel markers!)
Tinting embossing with Copic markers makes me giddy!
by making custom coloured beads in a nice apple green:
Copic reinker, blending solution, and alcohol ink
(these used to be clear white beads)
B) Smoosh the ink around
C) Dry in a container in an airy place
BARF!!! (the look on his face was exactly the look on mine when
I created that crayon barf monster!)
and pasted in a little banner in the background:
These are like little chipboard blackboard art. They were silly fun to make! :-D
Step 1) Draw some pictures in crayon
Step 2) Smoosh black ink all over them & wipe off the excess
Step 3) punch them out with a circle punch (this is a 1 and 1/4" circle)
Step 4) print circular frames (scaled down to fit & printed on matte paper to emboss them)
Step 5) Make frame rings & adhere everything:
A) Punch around the inside of the frames with a small circle punch (1 and 1/4" circle)
B) Then Punch around the outside of the frames with a larger circle punch (1 and 3/4" circle)
C) Make plain white rings the exact same way (to layer underneath the frames for dimension)
D) Colour the white around the black frames with a crayon
E) Tint the embossing on the frames (same as with the big one)
F) Mount the punched art behind the layered rings on a white 1 and 3/4" circle)
G) Glue your mini blackboard art onto a piece of cardstock (the black scallop)
Step 6) Add wee "nails" and picture wire.
The picture wire is silver thread, and the nail heads are the tips of snaps poked through holes made with a paper piercer. The snaps are glued on (so the art doesn't fall of the wall.) ;o)
all this silliness,
