Applause | The Missing U

Back to share another LO I created for my friend Ted.
Ted and I had and continue to have a fun relationship, and by that I mean that we were always making fun of each other and pulling jokes (for a lack of a better term) on each other... all in good spirit and for the love of humor, so when I saw that "they" had taken this picture of him, well I could not stop laughing.
He thought he was going to be hilarious by showing the crowd this sign, and the joke was on him! LOL

I was really having a hard time with this LO's title.  I kept coming with things like "the spelling be that could not" and all sorts of titles that included the spelling bee, but I could not find paper that had bees combination school related.  I did find that I had this CartaBella collection and decided to use it and this is how the title evolved into "the missing U."

This is one more LO inspired by one of the awesome PageMaps sketches.

I know it need a bit more embellishing on the journal card, but since I am just adhering with removable tape so that he can later type the journal entry and I will be giving him things such as paper clips etc. and will be showing him how he can run it through the printer if he chooses not to write in the entry himself.

Of course I had to use glitter paper and glitter alphas for the U to make it stand out!! LOL
For the background I used grey cardstock but the color was a bit intense so I decided to add vellum before adhering and stitching all the circles.

Thanks for taking a look.  Here is the sketch that inspired this LO.
