Fun with thickers

I am a thicker addict. Im serious. I just cant get enough and I rarely make anything thickerless. The other day I was playing with some plain white chipboard thickers and I had an idea. I got out my markers and I turned those white thickers into this....

Basically all I did was outline the letters with a black American Crafts slick writer then I scribbled with my bright sharpies. It could be a little neater, but I like things kinda messy. I felt like a genious. Im sure Im not the first person to think of this but I love the way it looks. I know Im gonna wanna do it alot. I guess Id better buy more white thickers.

Here is the layout I created for Allyscraps with the new Junkitz destinations line. Imagine how boring it would look with plain white thickers. Kahunaville is a fun little tiki bar restraunt inside Treasure Island. (more Vegas baby)

As for the wedding, the weather was beautiful and so was the wedding. It was in a gorgeous state park in FL. My brother was so happy and I love his new wife to pieces. It was SO warm. This Ohio gal was thrilled to be swimming at midnight. I'll have layouts to come to show you all about it.

Oh and since Im outlining thickers.... here's a little peek for the Jan 20th Caardvarks challenge.

i'd elaborate on this theme, but i need to go and buy some white THICKERS before they are sold out, b/c EVERYONE who sees this is going to be wanting them!!!
