Happy Friday to you all my friends! Wow what a day I had yesterday, YIKES! I will keep my chitter chat short for you today for a few reasons---I am on my way to Utah via Chicago as you read this for a weekend business trip (no teaching) and I was in a car accident yesterday evening. Some of you know that last month I bought myself a brand-spankin' new BMW Sports Coupe Convertible that I called my "baby" cuz I wanted it forever & ever, LOL. Well I was dropping off Alexa at the high school for a game, I was stopped on the street waiting to make a left hand turn across traffic. When I looked up in my rear view mirror I saw a car going super fast at us and I had no time to move, think or do at that point. He wasn't looking (he admitted he was fooling with his radio & he is 17 yrs old) and when he did look up he saw us and I saw the terror on his face and then I just saw white. My head slammed into the steering wheel and then the back of my seat---like a ping pong ball. So I was taken by ambulance to the hospital for a few hours and I have severe whiplash & possible concussion but I'm just really sore and really sad! But I will say that my BMW was a little tank--his car is totaled but my car doesn't look to bad and for that I am grateful. Alexa was safe and she got checked out too, she's just sore. But if I had been in a lesser car the outcome might not have been the same so I'm very grateful to those guardian angels that were hovering nearby. I know some of you are shaking your heads (like my mom & hubby) but I'm pretty hard-headed and this is nothing in pain compared to what I have had in my lifetime--I will persevere just fine dontcha' worry ;) I'm a pretty tough broad so this is just another notch under my belt, hee hee! Hubby told the DR he wished I would be more "needy"---ewwwwwwwwwwwww, who me? NEVER, LOL!
I get to share this beautiful lil peeker called "Daydreaming Peeker" by Elisabeth Bell for SCACD and I loved her at first site. Reminds me of my daughter when she was young all dressed up in her ballet finery and ready to dance. I'm thankful Alexa has decided to go back to ballet for a bit this fall---I so miss watching her dance, she's very talented.
I kept the colors very soft and pretty---all pinks and creams. The papers are new from Melissa Frances (love them) and then I prettied it up with lots of trims. A Spellbinders die on the polka-dot paper, MS border punch on the edge, Bow Easy bow and scrolls by Marianne Designs dies. All the edges got roughed up with my Zutter Distress tool and then inked. A few blingy rhinestones finish it all off and the sentiment is from PTI that I cut in half.
She's colored with Copics: R21,R20,R00,Colorless Blender/E11,E00/YR24,E25,E50,E31 and then I added stickles to her ballet shoes and bodice for sparkle. The mirror in the jewelry box got a coat of diamond glaze as well. She's just sooooo CUTE!
Now to see more of these cuties in action you need to head over to CAROLYN'S BLOG NEXT on the hop! And stop by the store HERE to pick a few for yourself--go on & treat yourself 'kay? LOL!
