My Other Creations: TV Quote Tribute

This week's Simon Says Stamp Monday Challenge theme is, "in the middle."  The first thing I thought of was a TV show I enjoy called, The Middle.  I don't spend a lot of time watching TV, but when I do need to veg, I might as do it with an entertaining show! TV characters say some of the greatest lines ever, so why not feature some quotes on an interchangeable board?  I started it off with one from Leverage:

I used a TV die-namics die from My Favorite Things and glued just the frame of the TV to my background, leaving the far side unglued.  This allows me to be able to switch quotes in and out, depending on my mood.  I attached a circular pull tab to each quote, which I can easily slide in and out of the TV frame.

Since our theme is "in the middle," I was sure to include some quotes from the Heck family!  I've also been enjoying using Project Life and other journaling cards for uses besides pocket scrapbooking (though I love that, too).  For this piece, I used a Project Life floral card and a Prima Epiphany card to build up my background layers.

While I made a mini quote board, I got to thinking that TV quotes would be great on cards to friends!  Just Google a quote from a friend's favorite show, stick in on the front of the card and wah-la!  You have a personalized card that's probably way more entertaining than a traditional greeting card sentiment.

It was fun to be inspired by The Middle and these fabulous products, which you can find at Simon Says Stamp:

This theme is quite intriguing, so I can't wait to see how you interpret it!  Upload your clever creations to the Simon Says Stamp Monday Challenge Blog for your chance to win a $50 gift voucher to Simon Says Stamp.
