Album Envy



Like many of you I'm sure, I saw Martha's new 18" album. And let's just say, I kind of had this Gertrude McFuzz moment (if you haven't read Gertrude McFuzz by Dr. Suess I highly recommend it. It's especially useful when deciding how many embellishments to add to a layout). I'm standing there in the store and I'm thinking, "Wow, that's a REALLY big album, how can li'l, ol' Cosmo compete with an album of that stature? Anything bigger and you wouldn't be able to lift it, and smaller has already been done."

This is where the miracle happened. Just a couple days after I saw the 18 incher, I was sent an email and in it was this photo. It's my little girl from an ad campaign Eric worked on before we started Cosmo Cricket. "So," I told myself, "Forget Martha's 18" album, I scrap my kids on 48 foot billboards." Now I just need to figure out how to attach some die-cuts and chipboard to it.

HAHA HA! Wowee! You are going to have to get some REALLY Big embellies for that album. But good grief, congrats! Were you not notified of the billboard?

So glad Cosmo has a blog! Looking forward to seeing what you have in store.

That's a hoot! LOL! And as for the 18" album and all the rest, the only part about size that comes to mind is that it's one BIG snore! LOL. Anything that your creative minds come up with will be far better.

That's really funny! I agree with Inky - 18" is way too big. I'll stick with 12x12 and besides that. CC doesn't need to compete with Martha. I'll take CC any day, hands down.
