Friday Night Scrapbooking
Tonight was Friday Night Scrapbooking and I actually made a card :)
I have been colouring images for my Christmas cards the last few Fridays, but tonight I actually made a card.
I think she turned out pretty cute.
She is a Pure Innocence Design and I coloured her up with my Copic markers and paper pieced her dress.
I popped the cloud up with some dimensionals.
Drew in the grass and did a bit of outlining with my black marker to mimic the grass drawings on the stamp to extent the grass.
Added some more pattern paper to the inside..and of course recipe/index cards for my message.
Onto My Day:
Today was a PD day for Kristy, so no school. Which means I got to sleep in ;)
I took Kristy out for lunch, just her and I. That doesn't happen very often, it was nice just the two of us going out.
Then we went to pick up her boyfriend Blake, as they had planned to do some baking (I am sure Kristy was doing the baking and Blake was the tester).
On our drive there, I got a text and asked Kristy to read it. It was from Wayne informing me that my girlfriends brothers funeral was today.
My girlfriend and her brother lived with us as I was growing up. Her dad and my dad worked the same job out of town, so they lived with us when our dad's went out of town. Then later her dad bought a place close to us.
We consider ourselves more like sisters then friends.
I had 45 minutes to get ready and go.
I have sadly been to a lot of funerals, but this one was just so touching to me.
He was only a year older then Wayne.
If your wondering why I didn't know about the funeral earlier, I don't read the newspaper. The last time I had read the paper, a baby was found in the trash bin, 2 teen boys were microwaving cats...so why the heck to I want to read that kind of stuff.
I know many are surprised that I am not up on the news.
I don't want to read or hear about these things. I know they happen, I'm not naive. But seriously, why do they have to focus on the negative things that happen in the world.
If there is a big catastrophe, my SIL lets me know ;)
Wouldn't it be wonderful if the news would just focus on the positives in the world...that would be news I would be willing to read or watch :)
I hope you all had a creative Friday :)
