Throughly intrigued and excited by the rasterbator (http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=9333.30) photo possibilities, at approximately 3am on an early-summer night I realized that my search for the perfect Cary Grant poster had finally come to an end (which had been a crusade of epic porprtions for the past few months). 

After printing out the picture, I was thrilled, but still slightly disastisfied in its display. Two months of pondering and trips to walmart, plus one evening of glue sticks, scissors, and 30 frames, multiplied by my roomates' inability to use the kitchen table for fear of murder by papercuts, my final crafty arithmetic computation took form in this:

"Everyone wants to be Cary Grant. Even I want to be Cary Grant." -- Cary Grant

I am still a little upset that you can see some of the seams where I pasted some of the sheets together, but all in all, I am pretty happy with the outcome. Or atleast too tired to redo it currently. The picture i took is not that great, but the actual dots from the rasterbation (oh what a name) are very sharp and not at all blurry or pixelated.

Now the second hurdle is to put him up correctly on the wall. And to paint the wall before doing so .... But what can I say, I am a sucker for a man in a cardigan who always makes sure to put on his hat before leaving, even when chasing after his girlfriend and a leopard.  Smiley

I bow down to you.

Cary Grant is the most deserving person who ever lived of being immortalized like this. I love him. And you for doing that. It is so worth it.

thank you

Why don't you do some thing productive and kill yourself because standing here next to you is beginning to make me look like an idiot. And trust me, I'm capable of looking like an idiot without your assistance.

oh that's so neat!

As a young girl and even up through high school I had a total crush on him. And I suppose I still do a little when I watch him. *whew

Thanks for all of your kind comments! Huzzah for the others with the Cary Grant Lurve, in lieu of one roomate's observation after standing on a chair to get a better look, " Cool. But isn't that a lot of work for some old guy?"  Cry

I think I might do a Robert Smith one next, maybe gift it for a birthday or Christmas, if I do not get too attached ...
