Happy Birthday!

Check out this wonderful clipboard that Artistic Outpost Design Team Member Gerrie Johnnic created using the Snowy Woods plate. It's one of the entries in the Project Contest at JustRite - click here to vote for Gerrie's project!
I knew I wanted to use my Adventure plate from Artistic Outpost, but I wasn't sure about the paper yet. While looking through my paper I came across this old SU! Simply Scrappin' Kit called Polka Dot Party. I am generally uncomfortable with brights: don't wear 'em, don't decorate with 'em and don't stamp with 'em. However, I thought this pensive looking little dog could use some cheering up, so that's how I combined this unlikely pair! This is a big stamp, so I made a 5x7 so I'd have room to glue a bunch of stuff on. Why bother if you don't plan to glue a bunch of stuff on? (Except Amy and Lauren, their CAS work rocks!)

Well, it was spitting snow when I left school this afternoon. It's cold and windy here, but not cold enough to really snow, just cold enough to be excruciating outside! I swear, I used to be hot ALL the time, now it seems I'm cold all the time. Right now I'm wearing a tank top, cardigan, and TWO polar fleece vests, plus jeans, shoes & socks. What is my deal? Last night I had six blankets on, then had to get up and put on my Smart Wool socks and a t-shirt over my pajamas! I am going to find that electric blanket tonight before bed if it's the last thing I do!!
