Project Life: Week 3 out of 52.

So in part 3 of Project Life we find Denise baking cookies, going to IKEA, hanging with the sister, getting quickly addicted to coke (I'm purposefully putting that in lower case so it seems more exciting), not surprisingly taking more self-portraits and surviving below zero weather dressed only in flip flops and a bikini.  Yeah....I made the flip flops and bikini part up.  Kind of made you want to flip right to the end of the layouts, didn't it?  I mean Denise in a bikini?!  How tantalizingly scary.

And in case you are worried...ha...I am kicking my coke habit.  I have given up coke and have been clean for ten days and since we have brought it up, it totally stinks.  Let me say that in 1903 Coke claimed that they no longer used cocaine as an ingredient in their soft drink.  I'm not buying that for a minute.  I am sure the secret recipe is comprised of 96% cocaine with a shot of meth and a shake or two of artificial flavoring.  Why else would I get hand shakes every single time I drive past McDonald's? OK...I totally admit it may be due to my fear of clowns.  But that story is for another time.

Thanks for stopping by!

Snow Queen

Taking a bit of a break from the Project Life posts.  I make it sound intentional and planned.  Truth is I'm behind and need a day to put more together.  I even went to a crop this weekend with the intention to get caught up.  yep...I seem to have grand and unrealistic hopes and dreams.  After all, I am only a month and week behind.   I completed exactly one 4x6 - January 21.  Nothing else.  Cracks me up.  

The layout below was done a month ago when I still liked snow and knew how to do 12x12 layouts.  I have to somehow re-stamp the journaling over the stamped background as it faded.  I'll do that as soon as I am caught up on my Project Life.  HA! I have to say that this layout proves two things.  One...I used my Silhouette machine and; two, I finally used one of those fancy pins.  I doesn't prove much, but I have wagers out there and it is time for those suckers....ehh people to pay up. I'll take the payouts in large bills, if you don't mind. 

Non scrap-wise I saw the movie, The King's Speech, yesterday.  It was great.  I hear my boy, Collin Firth, may be knighted due to his portrayal of the Queen's father.  She loved it very much.  I don't understand this knighting thing, but kudos to the soon to be Sir Firth.  That sounds wrong.  Does this mean he won't do movies, like Bridget Jones, anymore?  That would be a travesty. Anyway....just go see it.  If for nothing else than to see and hear a theater full of white hair (I went during senior time it seems) people laugh hilariously through a shocking slur of profanity.  Only Collin Firth could get away with making prim and proper people laugh over a string of explicits that would normally raise them into a fury. Love that man.

Project Life. Week Two.

Not sure if I mentioned it or not, but this is my life.  Or I should say what I wish to document.  There are parts not fit for public consumption.  HA...I lie.  There is no way to make this ordinary life sizzle with excitement.  Well, there is, but it isn't legal.  So anyway....let's keep this short and simple.  This is week two:

Still no dancing men.  To be honest, if there were dancing men, I sure wouldn't be taking photos of them with my iPhone.  I would be hurriedly folding dollar bills into bow ties for the purpose of ....ummmm....tipping.  Here's the instructions just in case you are in need of some fancy origami money or just want to amaze your kids, friends or local police department.  There is always a wealth of information on this blog.  Unfortunately, it isn't always needed or wanted.  LOL  Thanks for stopping by!
