SCI-FI Blog Hop

The future: it holds a fascination for us. We sit and look at the stars and wonder what's out there. Many have tried to imagine what it would be like to reach the stars, to see that future. Those people created Science Fiction, a way to immerse ourselves in that imagining. Today we share with you a piece of our visions of this future time. Our hop starts at the head geek's blog: If you have warped in from somewhere else make your way through hyperspace by clicking on the link, resistance is futile. If you arrived from [insert previous blog here] then you are following the correct space time continuum.

We have a great sponsor today! Scrapping with Lisa Designs will be giving a $20 gift certificate to the winner of our blog candy! To enter leave a comment on each blog, you are not required to become a follower but I'm sure it would be appreciated. Make sure to check out her files at!

I also am holding a drawing. I am giving away two sheets of each of the papers I used in this project plus four more sheets for a total of 8 sheets and all the sheets are double sided. That's a lot of space and robot paper to have fun with.  The paper is from TPC Studios.

How to enter: Just leave me a comment and become a follower of mine or let me know if you already are. I'll pick the winner on Wednesday.

My first project is a Marvin the Martian card:

I got this stamp from Goodwill and it was one of the first things I colored with my Promarkers. I've been saving him for an occasion like this.

My next project is a layout I did using some of the paper I am giving away during this blog hop. A few years back we went to Roswell, NM and I have lots of fun pictures I need to find and add to this layout.

The space ship, ray gun, planet and words I created and made svg files out of them. 

It would have worked much better to use acetate instead of vellum on the space ship. There is glitter and bling going on but it didn't show up in the pictures. The story of my life.

Thanks so much for stopping on your trek through the galaxy. We gave so much enjoyed your stop here today and look forward to seeing you in our galaxy in the near future.
