Color Inspiration #30

It's time for another one of Kristina's challenges. A couple of days ago she made a clear acrylic card and stamped some snowflakes on the acrylic. It was very cute. It inspired me to use the same technique. I made a snowglobe card for this challenge. I knew I couldn't "shake" my card and make the snowflakes float around, but I did make it interactive. (Sorry for the crooked picture. I was getting a horrible glare from the acrylic and tilted the card just a little so I could get a clear picture.)

Let it Snow

This weekend I made another trip up north. Steven is moving up there so I went with him for the company and so he could check out his new job. I'll miss him a lot when he leaves. Anyways, I was able to visit Green Tangerines in Rocklin, CA. It's a pretty awesome store. All the chairs in their crop room were those executive office chairs and looked super comfy. There was also a digital studio that had computers so you can make digital scrapbook pages.

Tomorrow it's back to work after a 5-day weekend. But I only have to work 3 days this week so I guess I can live with that!

Have a great week!!

Five Things

It's Friday and I thought I would list 5 things that make me happy.

1. Five day weekends. Tuesday, November 11 is Veteran's Day and a holiday for me, so I just took Monday off from work and today is my regular day off which luckily became a 5 day weekend! Whoo Hoo!

2. I bought this cute little birdie ornament stamp. I heart him...

3. I went to Superior Market and bought some Mexican pastries. Pumpkin empanadas are amazing and feites are my favorites.

4. Texting... How did I ever live without it?

5. ATCs...My friend and I have weekly challenges and swap them. Each week we come up with a theme. Last week I picked Halloween, this week she chose Travel. I'll post them when we complete them.

I hope everyone has a great weekend!

Color Inspiration #29 and other stuff...

When I saw these colors for Kristina's challenge, it reminded me of Halloween. I know, I know...Halloween is over, but it is my favorite holiday. And that little mouse cracks me up!


This year for Halloween we went on a cruise to Cabo San Lucas. The ship had a Halloween costume contest. I dressed up as Lucy Van Pelt and Chuck went as, you guessed it, Charlie Brown.

Kick the football, Blockhead!

We were picked as one of the Top 31 costumes but the winner was this girl who was a zombie. She was an excellent zombie and she scared the bejeezus out of me! Her boyfriend is Phillip Jeanmarie from the soap opera, Passions (now canceled). They are seriously the cutest and sweetest couple. Phillip was so approachable and so modest and I wish him all the best with his career.

Phillip, me, Joy and Sara

This weekend we were suppose to go Arizona to take a train trip to see the Grand Canyon but we must have gotten some cooties on the cruise because David, Chuck and I got sick. So we are postponing our trip until January and we plan on taking the Polar Express! OH MYLANTA!! I'M GOING TO SEE SANTA!!!

I have a 5 day weekend coming up. Yup, 5 days and I can't wait.
