That Was Movember

I'm not being festive today. I'm just being plain silly.


When Sandra from Gotta Craft sent me some Echo Park Times & Seasons, the first paper I pulled from the stack had moustaches printed on it. Have to do something with that I thought. And thought. And thought. Until I heard The Tall One talking about Movember. He already sports some ambitious sideburns. Could a moustache be next?


Maybe not. But he had given me an idea for a page. First I had to find a volunteer. Someone who didn't mind looking a bit silly. All the obvious candidates shook their heads, so instead my beady eye fell on... a pair of beady eyes. Gary The Magificent? You're on.

Now I have a moustache stamp and haven't got a clue what to do with it - this may help. Love this :0)

Hey Birdie Designs said...

Excellent paper! Himself took part in Movember this year, now he is taking part in his newly created and lazy full beard December. Gary is looking pretty stylish there!

Ladkyis said...

excellent choice of model! and just the thing to wake up to on a chilly and dull december morning - and in a strange way it has increased the Christmas feeling.
Love it!

You Nutter - fab page though :o)

Amy said...

Sian! Poor Gary, I sincerely hope his male pride was not dented during the production of this great page?

Linda said...

Gary looks rather cute with a moustache. He will be grateful for any kind of extra fur at this time of the year!
Your page brightened up the day. Thanks Sian.

Gary the Magnificent ought to sport a moustche don't you think, his name just conjures up a ringmaster :)

alexa said...

He's even more magnificent now! Love your layering and it looks like you had fun doing it too!

Just when we thought the gorgeous Gary couldn't get more handsome! What a superstar he is - and so photogenic. Brilliant page!

It may have started as a bit of silliness, but it's ended with a magnificent page.

humel said...

Gem's Crafts said...

What a fab LO, and well done to the hamster for volunteering to be your model when no-one else would agree!

Melissa said...

What a fun layout - so glad you found a "volunteer" for the fun!

Karen said...

How dashing Gary looks with his moustache and hat. Lovely page.

Barbara Eads said...

Love your layout and the color combination! Wish I could read the journaling.

Maria Ontiveros said...

Sian,
This is such a visually stunning layout - I think it's the color combination mainly (yellow & black, with a pop of red), but the graphics are also really fantastic!

Ginger said...

Wonderful for Gary to participate in Movember!!He looks very handsome :)

Beverly said...

Excellent inspiration! I bet the others wished they had agreed when they saw how dashing Gary the Magnificent looks ;)

Sian said...

Hi Barbara - the journaling on the tag simply repeats what's in my post.

Cheryl said...

tee hee! love times & seasons! x

Carmen said...

Gary - what a smoothie with that tash :D He'll have all the girl hamsters hearts a flutter!

This did make me smile Sian :D

Ifa said...

Wow, Gary indeed looked magnificent. You are too funny, my dear. Seriously though, I think your boy might be up for it in a couple of years.

Amy said...

Love this LO. My Dad actually took part in Movember. I was completely unaware until I popped home for the weekend midway through and was met at the bus stop by what can only be described as a Mexican George Michael. Suddenly all those years of people asking if I'm Spanish make sense :p Well done to anyone who took part!
xXx

Jo said...

A really great, fun layout

Alison said...

Love it Sian....I've been trying to get Boo to wear a Santa hat today to no avail-maybe I need to try your idea!
Alison xx

Karen said...

Too cute!

Wanda said...

Love the mustachio'd _______ (sorry, I've not met Gary before so am not certain exactly what he is). Anyway, you're a font of information this week--I also hadn't heard above Movember until I googled it.

Gail said...

LOL - we all need a bit of silliness at times.
