The Grinch

Today I have a fun layout with the kids posing with the Grinch and his dog Maxx.  During the month of December, Universal Studios decorates their park in Whoville style.  They even put in a snow area where the kids can play.  The kids went wild over this since they never see snow here in Southern California.  We saw the Grinch right as we entered the park and the kids were so excited to get a picture with him.  We love to watch both the original animated Grinch who stole Christmas cartoon, as well as the Jim Carey version every year.

Here's a close up of the them.

I found this digital images on the net.  It was actually a coloring book page that I shrunk down to a smaller size.

I went nuts with the embellishments on this page, using all kinds of stuff; rub-ons, diecuts, Imaginese clear plastic snowflakes, tag, couple of ribbons, bling, and flowers.  The paper is from MME and Echo Park.  Not sure about the embossed green paper.  I used red and green Ranger distress inks around the digi and the tag, and well as Copic to color the digital image.

I am entering my Grinchy layout in the following challenges:
