Gnerd!

Cath has done it again with another fun challenge at Moxie Fab World. It's the Spectacular Spectacles challenge where the goal is to create a paper project using spectacles in an innovative way.

This challenge is right up my alley. I love nerds. After all, I married one! Isn't he a cute nerd? This is my hubby on his birthday. He's a total techie who loves science fiction, not to mention those glasses. They are my inspiration!!


So, you see, I had to play in this challenge and I had to take the nerd angle. As luck would have it, a few weeks ago I went to a scrapbooking expo where I picked up some eyeglass shaped brads from the Eyelet Outlet. They were my starting point. Then, I had to figure out how to use them. I started thinking about sentiments. I actually Googled phrases with the words glasses, sight, vision, see, etc. I found a couple quotes, but nothing jumped out.

Next I started looking in my stash for ideas. As luck would have, the adorable gnome from Lawn Fawn was the perfect size for the eyeglasses. Score!

Then something amazing happened. I had an original idea. (Insert light bulb here). As I sat at my craft table looking at the gnome with his nerd glasses, it hit me - gnome + nerd = gnerd!! Ha ha ha!


Here's the recipe:
Stamps: Lawn Fawn
Ink: Memento
Markers: Copic
Patterned Paper: My Mind's Eye, Imaginisce (books)
Brads: Eyelet Outlet

... and a reminder
