Blogtoberfest Day 30

Don’t miss out on my GIVEAWAY (closes 12:00 midnight EST tonight)!

Sketchabilities has revealed its latest sketch, #58. Be sure to head over to the site to grab the sketch, then create something and link it up! :)

Here’s my Design Team layout inspired by the sketch.


It's 1976, and I'm the hobo holding up Phil the cop for his candy. :-)

The year is 1976, and Phil and I are dressed as a hobo and a police officer. Our costumes are from the “things from around the house” school of fashion. Phil’s outfit is basically his school uniform—navy pants, light blue shirt and navy tie. Plus he wore a toy gun and badge. My costume was Daddy’s bandana-patterned fishing hat, one of his old shirts and some makeup to make my face look dirty. Easy and convincing, right?

I think my dramatic side is starting to emerge here, as I stage a hold up for the camera. And I just love that flummoxed look on Phil’s face!

    Love the vintage photo—in those days, it was much easier to make costumes for sure, and they were awesome! Love the title, and everything! Super layout!
