I always like Wednesdays...mainly because I only work a half day. It goes by too fast. Here is a layout I made this afternoon using the July Scrappy Giraffe Kit . I really like it a lot. The colors of course did not scan very well and look much better in person, as usual. This is a common saying that Emma likes to use...it basically means "I won't do _________ mom". The photo was taken in Virginia on our snake bite walk. I thought it kind of fit the saying. Oh, by the way...the stamp with the curly brackets/journaling lines on it...I made it. What do you think?
Went for my byweekly personal training session/therapy/social outing today. My trainer is pretty cool. He doesn't seem to mind if I vent =). Today I'm proud to report that I did a total of 40 pushups. I'm pretty sure they weren't the prettiest pushups ever seen and my form I'm sure sucked...but none the less, I did them. And I wasn't on my knees either doing "girl pushups". Also did a nice little twisty thing in between them. I'm not a push up girl, in fact I hate them passionately, so this is an accomplishment.
Other things making me happy today...music. Loving the song "Over my Head" on this CD. This groups sounds very Coldplay like.
Was reading this book again. Would recommend it for anyone interested in scrapbooking.
I love the intro: "I'm always surprised at the reactions I get from people when I tell them what I do with so much of my spare time. But I can never just say, "scrapbooking," and leave it at that. I feel this moral obligation to elaborate-to help vaporize the sterotypes of ladies wearing applique sweaters, running amok with decorative scissors and teddy bear stickers." I do the same thing. People look at me all crazy when I tell them I scrapbook (Dr. Marvasti). I love the applique sweater and teddy bear sticker thing. Makes me giggle. Also love the quote on the next page, "Above all else, it is about leaving a mark that I existed: I was here. I was hungry. I was defeated. I was happy. I was sad. I was in love. I was afraid. I was hopeful. I had an idea and I had a purpose and that's why I made works of art." --Felix Gonzalez-Torres. Anyway, I think that says it so well, why I scrapbook. Why you should consider it (keesha). Anyway, that is all tonight. Have a good one.
