I know it's late but who cares LOL.

Well hello everybody! It's 10:13 pm, the house is quiet and I'm sitting here watching American Gigolo. Yes it's unsavory but nothing else is on and I usually watch The Twilight Zone- yes I love watching T Zone. It's the episode where Carol Burnett was severely clumsy. I've seen it, but I'd much rather watch Richard Gere get framed for a murder he did not commit. How crazy is that. It was a good movie but I didn't like the way that it ended. Crap now I am going to have "Call Me" by Debbie Harry on the brain....Yes that was the opening theme song of the movie. On the other hand, have you seen "Play Misty For Me"? That lady was bat crap crazy but it was good....

So about my day, out of 10 ppl scheduled to come in for their review's today, only 1 of them came in, and she was supposed to have a phone appointment. I do income maintenance with the State of Wisconsin, you know medical, food stamps (well they call it food-share) and child care assistance. Yes my job is stressful but it has more to do with my coworkers than my clients. I would love to get into the outreach field someday. But for now you can call me a case worker.....

So I stopped @ Michael's, only picked up 2 items. Ditto glimmer spray in lime green and a pack of green and blue dot cupcake liners. Yes I am getting into other colors but I still loves my pinks! I then stopped @ TJ Maxx and picked up a bunch of Thickers. Hey for $1.49 you can't beat the price. I got a pack in pink of course, green, cream....the cashier asked "just being nosy but what are you going to do with all this?" I told her that I scrapbooked. She smiled and said it was a big industry. Then we went home. The kids were a howling mess and tired. I was tired too but not too tired to finish this layout YES!. 

Journaling reads:

You are such a vibrant child. You are loud; everyone knows the exact moment you enter the room. You love bright colors, you are creative, and your smile is awesome. You have so much energy; you love to run (everywhere), jump (on everything, including us)and play (dress up, pretend school). I don’t know how you have so much energy every day. You even love to wrestle (something I wish dad hadn’t taught you). In fact @ this very moment you are wrestling with your sister while you guys should be sleeping….

This was really fun to make. I've been working on it for a week or so. I put the banners down first~painstakingly hand cut then it sat for a few days while I mulled over what to do with it. The stamp is from "Ditto, Hero Arts" Got it from Michael's in April. Isn't it cute? The have another 1, its more like an outline of this one. When I saw it I knew I had to have it. $3.99, great price. I painted a container top in lime green and stamped with it. Then I started misting with lime green and Tattered Angels Polka Dot Pink. I wanted the colors to add to the theme. Gabrielle is very vibrant, she's very loud and makes her presence known!  I love that she's smiling more rather than giving me that "Don't ask me to smile" look. She can give someone the ice grill in a moment though. Oh that sweet "heartbeat punch" Is Martha Stewart. Dontcha love it? I'm glad I saw it because I was actually on my way out of the door but decided to have a look see in her aisle. 

Well that is all for now. Have a blessed evening and happy late night crafting.
