Minions and Dinosaurs!

Welcome to the Club Scrap Artist Team July Challenge!

 

The challenge this month was to create a project inspired by the pictures of the minions!
When I original came up with the idea for this challenge it was because I am a HUGE minions fan and the new Minions Movie opened this month. I have a large collection of minions. They keep me company in my scrap room and on my desk at work!

 
What I did not realize was how well this month's Club Scrap Cantina kit complimented these images.
My original plan was to make a layout about my love of minions and my collection. That is so NOT what I wound up with. I wound up with a dinosaur "birthday cake".

 
My daughter's BFF turned 16 this month. Catie and I had discussed the ides of making a "cake" to hold her present. Well, time got away from us and of course the night before the big party we are making the "cake"
 
 
 
 I tried to persuade Catie to let me create a Minions cake. I begged, showed her all the adorable minions in the store but to no avail. Catie held firm that the cake had to have DINOSAURS!
Her BFF loves dinosaurs so nothing else would do.
 

 
All the papers are from the July Club Scrap Cantina Kit. We covered each box differently. We used some foam dinosaur stickers and of course I had to add some bling!
 
 
The "cake topper" we constructed from plastic dinosaurs. Gotta love the dollar bins at Target. The large dinosaur (bright yellow like the Minions) actually growls and his eyes light up when you move his tail. I think it is a Fisher Price toy (not from the dollar bin).
 

 
 

 I just LOVE the Catina kit! You should hop on over to Club Scrap and check out the whole Cantina Collection!

 
 
Wishing You a Wonderfully Creative Day!
