We Interrupt Our Regularly Scheduled Broadcast. . .

. . .to bring you some exciting news!

Both Sara of Sara's Sugar & Spice and Deanne of Three Trees {paper} Creations have singled (more like 1/8-ed) me out with a swingin', swanky, and super-sexy blog award!

But unfortunately, I now have to share eight interesting things about myself when I can't even think of one. . .EEK!

  • I met my husband Lance on a blind date, and we got married six months later.
  • And yes, we did it like porn stars on our first date. . .;)
  • I'm going to see Yoo-Rah, Jackie, Joy, and Sandye over the MLK, Jr. weekend in San Jose/San Francisco, and I'm jumping up-and-down exited! I can't wait! Open! Open! Open!
  • Speaking MLK, Jr. . .I know it's a cliche, but Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. and Mother Teresa are undoubtedly my personal heroes.
  • So are my parents - I'm the BIGGEST Mama & Daddy's girl evah!
  • And speaking of my parents, they're sixth cousins and even worse - My grandparents are (were - God rest their souls) uncle and niece. . .EWW!!!
  • All that inbreeding must have been a good thing because I have an IQ of 148 and only five toes on each of my hands and feet. . .;)
  • Believe it or not, one of my best friends - Yoo-Rah - accuses me of being too private.

The Crafty Hos: Monochromatic Challenge

Hey hos, how's tricks?

Oh alright, I'll concede that I'm stretching the boundaries of The Crafty Hos' monochromatic challenge just a bit, but you've got to give me props for using an ink color other than black, right? ;) I used Pearlescent Rust from Tsukineko's Brilliance collection - Pretty swanky, huh? ;)

Hmm, I'm thinking that I should have divided the image into three panels and lowered the ribbon just a bit?

Supplies: Impression Obsession image, PaperTrey Ink card stock, The Paper Studio card stock, Rusty Pickle card stock, Copic markers, ??? ribbon, Mark Richards embellishments.
