Playing My Cards Right…

1 Casino Jack PosterFebruary 1st!!

Time for a fresh challenge over at ‘From Screen 2 Scrap’ & this month it’s the poster for ‘Casino Jack’ that’s your inspiration!

The added criteria are…

1. Grey CS for background
2. Use playing cards on LO
3. Use money notes on LO

I thought long & hard about
what photo I could use for my DT example LO that would be relevant to feature #2 & #3 in my design. (I’ve always been quite a literal scrapper!)

I finally decided on a photo of me, taken at Christmas 1985, on a girls night out at a North London nightclub & casino…a tenuous link I know, but it’s a photo I like & it’s never been scrapped in its own right!! Here is what I came up with…

Who's That Girl

Who’s that girl indeed…where did she go? I guess twenty eight years & motherhood have taken their toll!!

Anyway…what would you do with this poster & criteria? I’d love for you to show us…just pop over to ‘From Screen 2 Scrap’ & link up your LO for a chance to win some great prizes! You have until the end of February to join in…see you there?!

I’m off to the hairdressers in a few minutes…It’s such a hard life!! Thanks for stopping by & come back soon! Open-mouthed smile

I don't think you have changed a bit - that infectious smile is still right there :)

It's a beautifully striking page - I love the way the grey title is there, but doesn't detract from the photo

I'm impressed - I looked at the poster and drew a mental blank! But that's a fab layout :)

Great translation! We used board games and cards today at our scrap class, but they got a bit sounder the distressing! I used some Monopoly cards.. x

PS my daughter got US tickets for Robbie &Ollie Murs at Ethical in June so I may be doing a DC type scream, listen out! Kathi x
