A Hippopotamustn’t

All items for this layout (except the stamps for the title) were in my March Counterfeit Kit.  Sorry for the photo quality–some of it is due to using my phone to snap pics and some of it is for confidentiality reasons (our foster daughters from last summer, again).  Love these photos!!!  Cute little hippo feature at the park we went on their last Sunday with us, and they were both just too cute.  Cut the mat and border of the mat with my Silhouette, using one of the free shapes that come with it.

Found this poem online and thought it was perfect:

A Hippopotamusn’t
By J. Patrick Lewis

A hippopotamusn’t sit on lawn chairs, stools, and rockers.
A hippopotamusn’t yawn directly under tightrope walkers.
A hippopotamusn’t roll in gutters used by bowlers.
A hippopotamusn’t fail to floss his hippopotamolars.
The awful things a hippopotamusn’t do are just
As important as the lawful things a hippopotamust.

Loved these embellishments.  I coated my raw chipboard stars from the main kit with paint, then stamped and heat embossed in a highly contrasting color using the woodgrain stamp.  I WILL DO THIS SO MANY MORE TIMES, can I just tell you that?!?

Little detail shot of the title block…  I redid this once already, and it is still not perfect.  But oh, well, it’s done!  And good enough.  lol  Happy Monday!

  1. The advantage to blog hopping a couple of days late is that I’ve seen some extra pages – what a fab LO and love the poem. The title block alphas are perfect for your theme too. TFS – great use of your Counterfeit Kit.
