Okay, I know to stay true to my title from song theme, that should actually be Sk8r Boi, but I have a deep rooted hatred of all things spelled wrong just to be cool.
Gorgeous George tortures me with the "Westside Boyz" atv club he formed a couple of years ago.
That is what I have to live with on a regular basis, my friends. (and while wearing things like cut-offs no less, I'm a freakin' saint if you haven't already figured that out).
Now back to what this post is really about.
Now that the house is off the market (for today anyway) we (I) have decided to decorate the boys' rooms.
Jacob chose Star Wars which we are working on finding stuff for.
We bought one of those nifty word wall vinyl quotey things from a friend and put it up under a shelf that houses all the "DON'T TOUCH UPON THREAT OF GREAT BODILY HARM THAT MEANS YOU LUCAS" Star Wars lego.
Coveted (mostly by me) at the moment:
And Lucas chose skateboarding/snowboarding/surfing (this child has decision making problems)
So in trying to stay within the budget that we've set for ourselves since February, I made this:
I made the picture part in PSE and the frame is a cupboard door that I spraypainted with aluminum (have you ever heard a British person say aluminum? It's fun! If you meet someone from there I highly suggest you try to trick them into saying it. I have a new friend from the UK and could listen to her talk all day long) and then roughed it up with sandpaper.
I was lucky enough to find a font that has all the skate brands and used a couple of background papers from my supertalented friend, Libby's, digital kits.
Naturally, nothing is up yet because I'm waiting to find him a new bed (and I'm an awesome procrastinator).
I will share photos when it all comes together.
I'm thinking maybe September.
