Happy T.G.I.Friday everyone! Whatcha’ doin’ this weekend? I can’t tell you where I am (hmmm where in the world is Suzanne?) but I am flying out of DC at 7:30 am this morning to fly across country! Its top-secret, shhhhhh, kinda business that I cannot share right now but I’m looking forward to it. And no my suitcase NEVER gets unpacked much anymore LOL—I remove dirty stuff, insert clean stuff and head out the door again. If you follow me on Facebook you MIGHT see me post a few pics this weekend to see if anyone can “guess” where I am, hee hee!
And yep I have a goofy story or two for you today—start your weekend off with a giggle perhaps??!! I swear these things happen to me that make no sense & I never understand why really but afterwards I can't help but LAUGH! While I was up in NY visiting with my grandmother I got a chance to relax and read in bed each night which was FANTASTIC. Well one night I had the munchies so I was crunching on some snack mix and I had a Coke right next to me on the bedside table. There was a fly buzzing around the room and Riley had a fly-swatter and was chasing it much to my chagrin—I told him he better not swat it over my food (ewww). So I’m reading, eating, crunching and drinking---I take a huge slurp of my Coke and thought I had a small piece of ice in my mouth. UMM NO PEOPLE IT WAS THAT DARN FLY and YEPPERS I CRUNCHED IT! As soon as I crunched it I knew what it was—HURL, BARF, HEAVE, CHOKE, SPIT! Riley’s eyes were HUGE as I’m slowly vomiting in my hand (TMI I know but that’s what I did) and there was the fly---FLY PARTS I should say! OMGoodness, I raced in the bathroom gagging, used mouth rinse, brushed teeth about 5 times. I made Riley boil water in the microwave so I could sanitize my toothbrush. It was DISGUSTING---I was like the friggin’ ole’ lady who swallowed a fly! LMBO—nasty, nasty (even now I’m feeling a bit sick thinking about it). Did I make you feel sick too? LOL—sorry but I had to share! Then I wake up the next morning go out to my car to get something, turn around and shut the darn car door. Then I GOT WHIPLASH---I closed my hair right in the DOOR and about scalped myself. My grandma was laughing so hard, omgoodness I swear I should NOT BE ALLOWED out of the house sometimes. In fact I’m amazed I have made it to adulthood some days with the dumb stuff I do all the time---its just SCARY! So I’m hoping all goes smoothly (yeah right) on my trip today so if you have lots of fingers and toes to cross please CROSS them all for me

I know just go on and say it “awwwwww!!”---she’s a super cutie ‘eh? This lil’ cutie is another sweet image from the “Peekers 2 Collection” by Elisabeth Bell for SCACD. This one is called “Sweet Cheeks Peeker”—cuz her sweet lil’ cheeks are peeking out of her ruffled panties hee hee. I think she’s just a doll!
My papers are new from that yummy Authentique Paper Collection—I adore the sweet and lovely patterns. The border was done with a MS border punch done with 2 layers. The dies are from Marianne Designs, bow done with Bow Easy and flowers by Prima. I added tiny pearls to the border of my Spellbinders “Beaded Ovals” die mat for more sweetness.
And yes she is colored with Copics: R22,R21,Colorless Blender / C3,C1,C00 / E11,E00 / E25,YR23,YR20. I added Stickles to her ruffles and bows for some sparkle. A Sweet Pea for sure!
