Live your Butterfly Bliss

The Calgals (see sidebar) got together on Friday - plus my Mom who was in town for the weekend. I made 4 cards there that night. This is one of the them. I picked up an 8x8 paper pad from Mike's that I used. The paper pad is from SEI and is called Black Orchid - the epoxy sticker is also from the line. Mike's has started to carry a few more designer lines.

My weekend with my Mom was great. We stamp/scrap shopped on Friday, went to Nancy's on Friday for the Calgals meeting. Saturday was filled with clothes shopping and the then dinner at the Redwater with friends and off to the Broadway show 'Rent'. I'd never seen Rent didn't even really know what it was about - I do have mixed feeling about it. It is always great to see a live musical, however this one was a bit strange...... it doesn't live up to shows such as Phantom of the Opera, Cats or Mama Mia.

Mom left on Sunday at noon, after I took her to the airport I put my PJs back on, found Grey's Antamony finale on the CTV website as I missed it (ABC doesn't allow Canadians to see the full episodes) - sat in front of my computer and watched it. It was so so so GOOD. I can't wait for next season. In my searching, I found a website that has a ton of tv on it Surf the Channel - so I went on to watch about 5-6 episodes of Season 4 of One Tree Hill. I missed that season however, I've seen the current one when they went ahead 4 years right through college/university. I thought that was a good move as so many series fail when the cast goes to college. - the whole point of this story is to tell you that I made an additional 8 cards for a total of 12 this weekend. I will have lots to show you soon. I also have all those double page layouts (5) to photograph.... hopefully I will figure out a good setup for that soon. So, LLL&S should be a pretty active blog .... about time I know! - plus next week is a sneak peak week for Hanna Stamps..... where did May go?
