Miles long...

My project to-do list is escalating to monumental proportions, but everything is on hold while I wait for pictures and my computer to come in. Well, and I'm not really that motivated.

Today is a weird day. There's something weird in the air. Maybe I get this feeling from seeing an entire wedding party crashing Applebee's today to go to the bathroom for 10 minutes. Everyone was dressed up to the nines- the bride in her gorgeous gown and the bridesmaids in theirs... the men in stunning suits. I had this overwhelming feeling that I was watching life happen before my eyes: a day these people will remember for the rest of their lives, and I'm a spectator to its glamor. The bridesmaids' dresses were GORGEOUS- something like this only cream with an expresso brown bow around the waist (the picture is from http://www.edenbridals.com/7169-p-963.html):

That's absolutely inspiring to me. I want one.. lol.

I also did a random project after starting a fresh composition notebook for notes on organization I would like to use after reading Heidi Swapp's blog today (http://heidiswapp.typepad.com/my_weblog/2008/06/a-peek-inside.html). One look at the undecorated cover, and this blank canvas became one more place to express my feminity with bright pink and silver. Love it!

Simple and to the point using Anna Griffin pp, random letter stickers and rubons (American crafts, etc.) and silver embossing powder and ink. It took me all of 20 minutes... most of which was determining where to place the stickers. :-)

Now, for things that are on my list... I'm almost done with this layout, but here's a sneak peak. I'm just waiting for the pictures to appear in my mailbox:

I'm really digging the turquoise and red combo. Hopefully I'll have that done on Monday!

Next, I pulled out all the supplies I might use on my best friend's graduation present:Then, I started the title page. Here's a peak of a project I've worked for 10 minutes on. lol When pictures come, this baby will be done in no time:Sorry about all of the teases, but I can't wait to have these projects done and share them for real. It's going to be a very productive week next week!

Love the red and turquoise combo too - its always says happy things to me! :) Have had a lovely time reading your blog - you do great work. Totally agree on your choice of camera, I use a Lumix DMZ FC5, which is 2 years old now, and love the quality of the photos I get.
Oh, and you asked me where I got the chipboard tags I use in all my mini books? I buy chipboard in HUGE sheets to make covers and use all the offcuts to make matching tags.... ;)
