My life has been so hectic lately that 10 days (since my last post) have flown by. I have joined the HD revolution with a brand new high definition tv by Samsung. I kept hearing how wonderful they were, so when the television in our living room became irreparable i took the plunge. I have spent the last day and a half with my eyes bugged out and my mouth wide open. The photo does not begin to do the screen justice, but it gives you a general idea. To explain that I spent 2 hours today watching baseball games should give you some idea as to how ga ga i am about the resolution.

When I found out that my friend Kiki was expecting I knew that I wanted to make her a wonderful scrapbook. She selected the color scheme from the new Stampin'Up Spring/Summer '08 catalog (Simply Scrappin' Special Delivery Girl). I decided to use those colors to make this little clipboard she can use to post her sonogram pictures. The finished project was amped up by using a quirky combination of rub-ons.
The finished product!

While playing with the fluorescent chalk feature of Adobe Photoshop Elements I found how it made blurry snapshots into something akin to an impressionist artwork. I loved how this photo of my friend's dachshund Taco looks.

Today I treated myself to a professional hair consultation. The shampoo session alone, with its massage reclininh chair, was worth the price. If anyone has not treated themselves to Red Door Spa I strongly recommend it. I lucked out by finding the best hairdresser in Bonaventure. She read my hair perfectly and by the end it was a silky glossy curtain of hair that I fell in love with. I felt like a total supermodel. I bet no one could tell I had not had an hour of sleep

The new Stampin'Up rubons are so wonderful to use. I bought these 6"x6" cards at AC Moore with the sole purpose of using the white rubons and the white Signo gel pen. I also used the pretties set of flowers and some of the felt fusion flowers.
