Slightly Star Struck

I met Al Franken at the Women's Night Out Expo. Sure, he's our Senator, but I was really excited because of his time on Saturday Night Live.
When Creative Scrappers had their One Hour Contest tonight featuring stars, I thought this would make a great LO!

Random Things

I was trying to clear up some hard drive space so I was going through my photos to archive and delete. I found a couple things that I don't think I've posted. So here are some journaling spots for a swap, and a Secret Sister clue card.

Thanks For Letting Us Drop In

Last week when my Dad was visiting, we went to lunch and then stopped a few places...including dropping in on my coworker friend, Ginny, and B&B owner friend, Bobbi. Unannounced! Well, I called Ginny from her driveway. I knew Bobbi's place was probably full, and therefore home. :-) I was right on both counts. To show my appreciation, I made them each a card today. Can you see the blog title in the orange "smoke"?

Falling More and More in Love

The last week of the Great Ribbon Rave! Wow, I know I keep saying it, but these past six weeks have FLOWN by!

Here's the rules:

1. Create a layout depicting MOTION any way you want (title, photo, embellishments...totally up to you!!). Here are some definitions of motion
The act, process, or state of changing place or position; movement; the passing of a body from one place or position to another, whether voluntary or involuntary; -- opposed to rest.

Movement of the mind, desires, or passions; mental act, or impulse to any action; internal activity.

Motion can be physical, emotional, whatever you interpret it to be.

2. Use a one of the quotes below to inspire your page and include it in a handwritten way on your page

Allow motion to equal emotion. ~ Elbert Hubbard

Growth, in some curious way, I suspect, depends on being always in motion just a little bit, one way or another. ~
Norman Mailer

The first step binds one to the second. ~French Proverb

“Our nature consist in motion; complete rest is death.” ~ Blaise Pascal

Action is eloquence. ~William Shakespeare

Everyone who's serious about what they're doing must be in constant motion forward. ~
Ed O'Brien

3. Use ribbon on your layout in a creative way. Let us know in your gallery description how you used your ribbon."

And this is my LO!

Silly Secret

A Few Have Been Asking What I'm Talking About ....

I found a tutorial on how to make tutus, after much searching for them online and in stores. I'm thrilled with the way they turned out, and can't wait to use them in a shoot. I have more colors coming, as I've already bought the tulle, so be on the lookout!

Winter Cards

I made a few different styles of winter cards to send out my family pictures to my friends and family. I also had a couple sympathy cards as well. I took this at work, and the lighting is a bit poor as I used my digital video camera's still function rather than my "good" camera...the DSLR.
