Celebrate Wacky December {at HMITM}

It was my turn this week to post a challenge at How Much Is Too Much. I have a source for wacky holidays that I share with my students, and I consulted my wacky holiday calendar for December and found out:

December is Bingo's Birthday Month.
It's also Rising Star Month.
And it's National Tie Month.
The first week of December is Cookie Cutter Week.
December 5 is Bathtub Party Day!

So...I challenge you to use:
* A bingo card (if you don't have these in your stash, just google "bingo card" under Google Images, and you'll find a gazillion).
* Use something that you can tie--ribbons, twine, raffia, etc.
* Use at least 5 stars.
* Use punches or cutters or a shape templates.
* Use your imagination and whatever product you want to create "bubbles" on your page.

(It's a good thing I didn't choose National Gazpacho Day!)

I used the sketch and palette from the current challenge at The Color Room to make my page.

When I saw this color combination, I immediately thought of Dawson, one the original collections by BasicGrey. My husband loves the cheesy touristy photo ops, and I'm doing a whole album about that called Poser. This page is going into that book. I'm still trying to find a good place in my new home to photograph my layouts.

Here are a few closeups. To make my "bubbles" for the challenge. I punched circles out of one of the Dawson papers and added glossy accents to give them dimension and mounted them on the stars with pop dots.

I found a Jenni Bowlin Bingo card that had the orange and blue to match the colors in the palette. There were other colored numbers on the card, so overlapped to hide them. I used my Zutter Distrezz-it-All to rough up the edges on my page.

Thank you so much for stopping by my blog and taking a look at my page today!
