Fall-To Layout 97

I decided to take one of my comp days from working the Annual Meeting in early June. Even without my cell phone alarm, I woke up just in time to make it to spin class this morning. I peeked at my cell phone to see what time it was and OH CRAP. 8:55 AM?! I was shooting to leave the house at 9:00. Scrambling ensued. If it was another instructor, I wouldn't have been so gung-ho about going, but Anna was teaching so I knew that I'd get a good workout in.

After a shower, I zipped along to the mall to make it to a 11:45 showing of The Twilight Saga: Eclipse. Because I got there right at 11:45, I was afraid that I'd be climbing over Twihards to find a good seat, but much to my surprise, there were maybe 10-15 people (!). I also noticed that the theater had gone through a reconstruction since the last time I'd been there. Cushy seats, hardwood floor, leg room. Niiice. I must confess that I hadn't finished the book before I saw the movie, but I enjoyed watching it. I liked how there was more action with the wolves as compared to New Moon, or just more action, period. FYI, not that you really care, but I'm on Team Jacob. I don't really see the appeal of the undead or Robert Pattinson.

True to Friday tradition, I wandered to clean&simple stamping for their card sketch (#97). I didn't want to use flowers because that's what was used in the example card. thinkthinkthink. I dug in my toolbox for some embellishments and came out with beachy ones. I really wanted to add some texture to the blue cardstock, so I heat embossed some clear waves on it. When I finished the card, I was thinking that I had a slight problem with scale and the flip flops being much smaller compared to the starfish. But then I made it work by thinking that the flip flops were toddler size and the starfish was just plain big.
