ready, OK....

You say red on the count of 3.
1, 2, 3....RED!
You say white on the count of 3
1, 2, 3....WHITE!

sorry there. I was having a flashback to high school cheering days. I've had this idea for a few weeks now that I wanted to try to make a cheerleader out of the Paper Doll set from Molly Stamps. It wasn't until I was cleaning my scraproom this week and found these old EK Success stickers that the idea started to come together. I bought them years ago to scrap my old cheerleading photos with. The fact that the stickers were still new in the package should give you a clue as to whether that project got done, LOL!

To create the cheerleader I sketched in some pleats on the mini skirt. I created the pom poms, by crinkling 1/8 inch strips of cardstock, created loops and tacked them down on a gluedot. Add a bow and a Varsity letter and you have a cheerleader. The color inspiration for this card came from this weeks Color Throwdown. Well that and the fact that red, white and grey were my high school colors.

supplies used:
Molly Stamps Paper Dolls
stickers: EK Success
alphabet sticker (v)- Making Memories
