Here in my Gloomy Place...

Today was a very grey sort of day. Drizzling and cloudy and least for the better part of the day cause it got a bit chilly as the day progressed. Didn't stop me and Ruby from doing a bit of running around though. Stopped by a couple of stores; didn't really find much. Had to run by Walmart to pick up a few things I needed; laundry detergent, water for the turtle's tank and I had to fill my gas tank...$1.86 today.

I got a chance to do another LO today. This was inspired by peainapod over on 2Peas. And speaking of 2Peas...I've been doing the Grant a Wish thread over there and have been getting the most awesome things. Today I got a brand new tin of Maya Road chipboard cupcakes!!! Woo hoo!!! I also went by the PO today and mailed out like 6 packages of things I owed from the thread. Lots of people will be getting happy mail;) Anyho...back to our regularly scheduled program...The background diecut paper is MM Chelsea's Place. Stripey pp is Cosmo Cricket Gretel. The little piece of text paper is from a K&Co. Life's Journey pad I just recently got at M's. MME diecuts, Prima flowers (LOVE these:) Some Sizzix cut stems. I also made a ruffle again using a strip of another Cosmo Cricket Gretel pp and added a piece of lace trim over it when I sewed it down. This pic is of V and Mattie on Easter morning.This was another LO inspired by the FAB Stephanie Howell. This is NOT my actual finished LO exactly. I can't seem to find that pic:(...??? So I will update this one when I do. The only difference would be that I added blue adhesive gems to the centers of the Prima flowers. MM Passport stamp edge pp on white cardstock. Cricut cut scalloped circle and circle of MME Tres Jolie pp. MME diecut. Stems cut from Scenic Route pp.

And here's the pic of the other Hello Kitty Sizzix dies Steve bought me:)

The one on the end is the one I actually wanted and he got me the other two. I ended up going back to look for the ladybug one and happened to find the last one hiding behind some other dies. Guess Steve must've overlooked it.

Well I was planning to start working on another LO, but now I'm just getting tired and it's getting later so I'll do that tomorrow. I'm also getting tired so I think I'll call it a night. Bye:)
