Just Be Me" - Tiddly Ink Chalenge #34

This week’s challenge is suppose to be about me…..  So here is what I came up with.  Although just a sprinkling on who I am, I think it turned out good.
I started with Tiddly Inks “Catgirl” digital Stamp
I picked this for many reasons…. One because it represents my family, me, my daughter and my husband.  Oh, and the fact that we have cat’s. Second was because I just love the symbol of the cat (Beckoning Cat or the kind lady cat)
The Second digital stamp I used was from the “Rainbow Dream Set”  I wasn’t sure when I picked it how it would fit in, but I felt that a rainbow represent  the bright and sunny yet colorful personality of me….
After I came up with my idle I decided that the rainbow should fall into stuff about me.  However when I went to the craft store,  I found a big collection of different buttons and such that would represent what I was wanting to do, but the sad thing was they were $2.99 per pack.  With just needing  one or two from each pack, realized that I would be $30.00 into it and that just didn’t make much sense.  Although I love to spend I do love a deal.  So what in the world to do?
So I thought I could create them myself, but how?  Then the kid in me came out and I remembered that I had sheets of plain Shrinky Dink paper at home.   Shrinky Dink paper is great, you create and color your item, then put in your oven and it shrinks up to only a small version of itself, but it gets thicker like a charm.
My shrink dinks represent a lot of things about me….. Music notes are because I just love music, all kinds of music, I don’t think I have heard a whole lot of music that I don’t like. Popcorn, because I love to go to the movies, the movie slate and Comedy Tragedy mask, again fall under the fact that I love to go to movies, but that I am also a member of the Screen Actors Guild.  The Hershey bar, do I really need to explain that?  Can you really have too much chocolate in your life?  I also like near Hershey PA.  The Diet Coke is my drug…. Most people need coffee, Starbucks, etc.   Well I NEED my Diet Coke!  Peace Signs, Daisies, and Smiley Faces mean a lot of different things, but we will just say it is because I am a product of the early 70’s. Peace, Love & Happiness Dude!
The ribbons coming out of the bottom are because I have sooooooo much energy that it just comes out of me….. lol  (Maybe I should cut back on the Chocolate and Diet Coke.)
The back ground paper was picked because I am a Disco Mama!  Although you can’t really see it in this picture, I sprayed it down with a glitter spray because you can never have too much sparkle in your life. 
I cut out the stamp colored a second one and cut out the cats to pop them up a little.  I used copic markers to color it and even though you can’t see it well I have pink highlights in my blonde hair because last season, I put pink in my hair for fun!  Plus you can never have too much pink!
I hope you enjoyed my card this week!
