I named myself The Crafting Professor, since I'm a crafter, and I'm a college professor. I went through many, many years of graduate school, and the best source of relaxation and stress relief was being in my craft room or going to a local crop. Back then, I never told anyone that I was a full-time graduate student. I was waiting for the day I would scrapbook my graduation page. Now, I run the ScrapbookerPhD challenge blog (http://scrapbookerphd.blogspot.com), and am bringing my passion for crafting and teaching together. But here, at The Crafting Professor, I'm just sharing my work with like-minded crafters from all over the world.

Love Bites

My husband loves all things related to sharks. He has an extensive shark tooth collection and a library of books about sharks. He can watch sharks swim at the aquarium all day. Today, I decided to give him a different shark image (lol). I love this image from Slinky Tart (this image is now retired) of the girl in a shark onsie. I had to color it for him. 

Hair - B01, B02, B04
Skin - E000, E00, E11, E04, R20, R22
Shark Onsie - C0, C1, C3, C5, C7

I used my Pretty Cute Stamp set Jawsome for the sentiment (can I just say how much I love this stamp set). 

Then, it was a scavenger hunt through my stash... what would I find. 
The star and water spurts are from an old beach-themed scrapbooking kit that I found tucked away in a pile, and the fish are little felt applications to put on clothing. They were in the bottom of a draw full of animal "stuff." I was lucky to find the orange fish appliqué because  blue and teal with orange is m favorite combination right now.
