A is for Adolescent (with more Gelli)

Good Morrow, it's the much maligned Cedric here, I've managed to jump up to the creation station to create a page for the alpha challenge over at The Craft Barn . We have a French-English dictionary, and following the other bears remit, I searched for a word that translates to the same in both languages, hmmm.....

Ooh, got one, adolescent.

Now, I'm sure the bears won't mind me utilising one of their fab pre made Gelli prints. Cut to my dictionary size, they look rather funky.

Must make sure there is no ambiguity over the word and definition showing through.

Now for the bears' inimitable stamping technique. I'm worried that my tail looks big in this!

Paw cut my images

Stop for a bite of supper, just a small plateful for me. In case you're wondering, it's not cottage pie, it's bungalow pie of course!!!

Ta da, one altered dictionary page, A for Adolescent, with appropriate teen type words, and dancing teens, as music was a big concern for me when I was a teenagebear.

I added the words music, play, grow, freedom, fun, and it's all about me, as these are the words which come to mind when I think of the word adolescent.

I had such fun making this page, hopefully I'll be able to fight my way up to the craft desk more often.

Ooh, Wilbear reminded me to tell you, there's still plenty of time to enter our just for fun, literary based challenge, more details can be found here.
With love from the bears.
