It's time for a classic toy challenge. Do you remember this song?
All around the mulberry bush,
the monkey chased the weasel
the monkey thought
it was all in good fun
Pop! Goes the weasel
Or do you just remember
Jack in the Box?
Do you have a memory about this toy? Did you know the words to the song? Does it remind you of something in your stash? We would like you to create a LO inspired by Jack in the Box.
Here is how our team was inspired. For more information about their layouts, click on their name for a link to their blog.
I was inspired by the colors and the fun theme, so I thought that this photo would be perfect for it.
My title comes from the last line of the lyrics for the tune that usually accompanies a Jack in the Box---POP! Goes the Weasel!
This little guy reminded me very much of a clown toy my daughter had as a little person. Her clown had lots of dressing skills attached to him/her to help her learn new and exciting skills.
The clown in the jack-in-the-box was the perfect inspiration for me to scrap these pictures of
my husband and I getting ready to go to a Halloween party!
I took my cue from the name of the toy "Jack in the Box" and titled my layout "M in the Hood". Also in this series of photos, my son had his hood up on his jacket and then "popped" out of it!
I went for the bright colours and made a large chevron pattern to echo the box shape
I went after the clown aspect of the photo and was inspired to use these Circus themed papers.
We hope to see you adding your layouts using the link at the top of the page. You have until 10/30 to enter the challenge.
