See the flower? It's one piece yellow cardstock with 4 layers of matching tissue paper, joined by a large brad. We crinkled each layer of tissue petals separately and then partially straightened them, giving the flower this amazin' dimension!
We unscrewed the ends of the pens and added DP to make a matching set, and added paper pads rather than post-its. For added dimension we also roughed up the edges of the solid card stock that we matted our flower on. Easy peasy and SO t'riffic, don't you agree?

There's a new Woodstock movie being released - I worked at a theater when the first one came out and probably saw most of it about 20 times! Back in the day of single screens, I had to return to the candy counter any time someone in the audience got up but otherwise could watch all the movies I liked. Yeah, I'm a movie-aholic, and interested in catching the new release!

About a month after finishing the second survey, I received a link to a follow-up survey. After completing the third survey and returning all the test products, I received a package containing an incentive payment of $50 PLUS $50 in scrapbooking products pictured here! Sweet, eh?! Well, I'm curious, and they'd provided an e-mail address in their e-mail should I have any questions ... I wanted to know how they selected me to participate. They told me it was from my responding to a survey about adhesives.
The product test ended up being Tombow, and I just happened to be running out of my Tombow liquid glue, so it couldn't have come at a better time! And, I was just working on a stash of cards for the Cards For Heroes organization! Thanx, Tombow - call on me any time!

Here's the color palette generated from the picture I post on my blog, and yes, those glasses have been replaced - tho' I still really prefer big glasses! I've really gotta get around to updating my pic one of these days ...
It's simple to use - you just paste in the URL of a picture (so if you haven't already, you can upload to a free storage place like flickr or Snapfish), then hit the Color-Palette-ify! button, and voila! You receive both dull and vibrant lists of colors found in the picture, along with a hex representation of them - useful if you're working on a Web page. Isn't modern technology wonderful?!

On a side note, I went golfing last night. My DH and I golf on my work-place's league. Not sayin' we're GOOD, or anything ... well, HE is! We played 18 holes, making up some of the rainouts we experienced at the start of the league. I don't know if any of you are in Michigan, but lately, you can pretty much say, "If it's Wednesday, it must be raining!" BEAUTIFUL day yesterday too - upper 70's, sunny, breezy ... and I hit some wowza shots, but still managed to hit enough lousey ones so my average isn't declining. I thought there was some unwritten rule that said the more often you played, the better scores you should shoot?!
