Who ya callin' "DumDum"?

Oh, well, if it's gum-gum that you want, then this is the challenge for you!
Over at Cinema Saturday here is the super fun challenge this week:

This is a really fun movie, that we enjoy watching with our kids. It was really hard to choose where I wanted to get my inspiration from this. I knew I wanted to do something fun, and we go around making "dum-dum/gum-gum" references often, so I thought I'd start there. I really wanted to find a good clip-art Easter Island Head to work with, but couldn't find exactly what I wanted, so I ended up creating my own. After much frustration and many "dum-dum" comments, this is what I came up with:

A miniature Easter Island Head with a mini-bubble gum bubble.
Here's a peek inside:


Here is what I used: Best Wishes and More set; Basic Black & Going Gray c/s; Basic Gray, Craft Regal Rose, & Craft White ink; Keytag (ret.), corner rounder, and 1 3/4" Circle punches, Sponge, 5/8" neutral brads; Clear EP; Stampin' Dimensionals


  1. Wow this is sooo cute!! What a wonderful creation!
