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.

Movie Time

Project 21 of my Simply Betty Stamps Challenge: Color every image in the Simply Betty Collection. That's over 500 images not including the new releases this year. I'm doing the happy dance because I am past 20 images. I'm still very motivated, but I have a long way to go, especially with a brand new line of images and some re-releasing of retired images. I can't wait to color the new Geishas. Come join my blog and cheer me on while I work my way through the Simply Betty Catalog.

I was 100% motivated by Kit and Clowder's Movie themed challenge. This Movie Time Betty is perfect for this challenge. I colored her using my Copics. When putting her together, I wanted to keep with the movie "theme" but I also wanted to make the card as a congratulations card, so I added the "you're a star" sentiment (or a play on a movie star), so I used the star patterned paper in the background, four glitter stars, and a movie production sign (3D sticker). 

I was also excited about this because I love movies, and I have a few movie buddies not including my husband who LOVES movies. This weekend, I'm going to see both Cinderella and The Lazarus Effect. Can't wait!!!
