Inspired By LEGO

Warning! Lots of photos in today's post before an actual card makes its appearance! Be patient, scroll through, and find a little inspiration!

LEGO Brick World convention came to town this weekend. We thought it would be a great way to entertain an eight year old boy on a Saturday.

It was a great way to entertain a LOT of boys, and girls, for that matter! We heard of people traveling from Michigan, Ohio, Kentucky and Illinois just to attend this event!

These were truly inspiring creations! I am always amazed by the creativity. Imagine...a lovely cottage garden made of colorful plastic bricks!

Or how about a farmhouse complete with barn, garden, and clothes hung out on the line to dry!

How about a princess house and gazebo?

And for the local crowd, a scale rendition of Lucas Oil stadium with retractable roof that was made for this year's super bowl festivities!

Sam had a chance to do a little building of his own. He quickly made this version of the Empire State building with King Kong perched on top!

I came home after this boyfest and decided to unwind with a little crafting. But as it turns out, I still had LEGO on the brain! I used the colors of LEGO bricks for today's card!

Can I just take a moment to tell you how much I LOVE my new stamps from wplus9 design? These are high quality clear stamps with the cutest designs. And can I gush over the customer service? Easy website to navigate, an instant order confirmation, and super fast shipping! I just ordered some more stamps and matching dies from them this weekend, so expect more creations from wplus9 in the future!

{inks: wild wasabi/daffodil delight/pacific point/real red from SU, PTI cream card stock and die, amuse gingham paper, amuse ribbon}

Thanks for visiting the cafe today!

  1. WOW- I had a friend whose now-husband proposed by building a Gone with the Wind mansion replica (her favorite movie)out of legos. It was really cool!

    Love the colors and how springy this card is!
