PMSabella and blah blah blah!!

This lovely little girl's is doing just what I wanted to do when I used to have PMS!

Eating popcorn....of course, now I just have the hot flashes!! I wonder if Emily over at Stamping Bella would consider doing a Hotflashabella..... LOL!!

Why the heck do they call them hot "flashes" - there really is nothing "flashy" about them! The word implies they last a split second but ohhhh nooo, that "flash" hangs around for a few long minutes, quite a few times a day. I never really thought it would be that bad until I started having them and then WHAM -- hokey smokey-- literally!!

Anyway, this poor thing is having a heyday with her chocolates and popcorn-I was at my daughter's house looking after my little grandson Jake, and I was rummaging through her paper when I found the gold paper with blue stars and I could just picture little Miss PMSabella on this paper.

I colored her with my tombows - I mean, I have nothing against copics but I can not afford $100.00 for 12 pens! - although I do think they are lovely and if I could afford it I would have them. Not instead--but also *wink wink*

I doodled around the edges, backed her on some gold cardstock and then on blue - just on the edge - since she is obviously on the edge herself!! I tied a ribbon around the bottom and applied a double sided sticky star to the corner. I mixed three different colors of glitter together, teal, brown, and fine gold. Then I sprinkled it on the star and wiped away the excess. It is a pretty neat embellishment and not too difficult to do except the star was paper thin (no pun intended....) and very pliable so you have to be careful when you are adhering it to your card.

Then I attached a label on the side that says "blah blah blah" and wrote on it in glitter pen so it would stand out. Done!

This was a sketch challenge over at the Paper Pretties Yahoo group. Those challenges are exactly that - a challenge - for me anyway!! Check them out! Head on over the Paper Pretties and see what it is all about!

Tomorrow I am attending a Stampin' Up Demonstration - I have never been to one so I am really looking forward to that!!

Then on Sunday, I am volunteering at Canada's Scrapbooking for Kids at the hospital in London, so I am definitely in for some fun at that place! It will be interesting to see how it all comes together. I have been reading about it for months and a lot of work has gone into the organization and having all the demonstrators able to be there. Anyway, I KNOW it will certainly be a learning experience and maybe I will be able to take a bit of free time and take a class or two!!
