Living in Old Navy tights and graphic Tshirts

I'm a simple girl, really. If I could, I would really change from one tights to another, from a tshirt to another. The thought of having to 'dress up' sends shivers down my spine. LOL. *not really, but you get the idea*

But dressing up my blogs... oh yeah baby! Anytime! (anytime I'm not too busy with the kids, school, meeting up with friends for cupcakes and coffee, dating my husband while the girls are in school, visiting my parents.. yeah, basically, anytime at all - *grins*)

So you see, that is why it's oh-so-great to have friends in high places, like the Super Creative Stoodle Team :) They designed the new blog header for me. They saved me from pulling my hair out, the very few strands I have left. LOL. I *heart* stoodle!

Do you notice the new blog header? Yes? No? What do you mean, no? LOL. Refresh if your screen is still showing the old header, pretty please. Because I am absolutely head over heels in love with my new blog header. Pretty cool hey? Looks like us, right? LOL. The Stoodlerist aka Mimi did a great job designing the banner for me. Thank you girls... you are the best!

You guys want one? Go ahead, I know you want to *winks* I sent them our photos for reference. That is why my husband is sporting his YNWA - Liverpool jersey. The man is a loyal fan, let me tell you :) Has been one for 32 years *ahem, even I'm not THAT old* LOL :D

Pheww... are you still here? I sure hope so, because I have a layout to share. A precious one at that.

thank you!

This is my friend Deedah, the one I altered the postcard for :)

close up 1

Pouring my heart out on paper, because I would feel weird saying all these to her face. Haha!

close up 2

I applied Hambly Antique White Rub ons to the ghost heart. Layered some Teal Blue Brocade overlay on a piece of yellow cardstock. Also framed the Black Brocade Paper with some scraps from a copper colored Hambly paper. Those are actually the leftovers, the negatives, when you used the Scallop Edge Punch - see, never underestimates the power of scraps! :)

I'm going back to my turkey salad with feta cheese and chips! See you soon!!xo :)

I love your new header and what a precious layout for your friend. Ha- funny- I have the same problem telling my friends such words into their face- Paper is so much easier. German saying: Paper is patience :)

Sasha, I'm loving the new blog banner! It's so much fun!!!

The layout is stunning and I get what you mean when you say that it would be too weird for you to say that to your friend, i'm the very same way, i can't voice those kinds of feelings, except for my girls and DH.

You asked me how made the tissue flower, I found the instructions here http://noelmignontandt.blogspot.com/2009/04/how-to-make-tissue-paper-pom-pom-flower.html, it is so very easy! Can't wait to see yours!
