Mandy (BFF since the 4th grade) and I stayed up late last night playing Yahoo Canasta. It's a variation of our favorite card game (hand and foot) and is what we settle with doing since we live across the state from one another and can't really stay up playing rummy and listening to the same Tim McGraw cd all night while taking swigs of bad whiskey and chain smoking cigarettes.
After losing terribly, or rather "looseing" as the person we were playing against kept saying, I went to bed at 1 a.m. and for some reason unknown to man, Terrance decided that she wanted to get up at 4:30-ish a.m. to have her morning juice and banana. I'd be lying if I told you I didn't put up a good fight that consisted of me begging her to lay back down and go to sleep. It was to no avail. We were up by 5. And at 6 she thought that it was a good time for her to go back to sleep. Me, not so much. I'm already up. I made myself some coffee and reached for the chocolate milk (to make a mocha) and decided that today I was going to shake the jug really hard. I like the foam it makes. And on the second full swing shake (I meant business) the lid popped off and chocolate milk went everywhere. Including all over the inside of my fridge because, let's face it, I was so eager for that chocolately foam that I couldn't wait to close the door before I started shaking.
So, the much needed morning caffeine had to wait. I had chocolate milk up to my eyebrows and everywhere within a 5 foot radius of my toes. *sigh* Fast forward 15 minutes: I've got fresh, clean PJ's on and my floor is not as covered in chocolate milk. What I can say? It was way too early and I was way too sleep deprived to properly clean it up and I decided that the inside of the fridge could wait a few hours for a thourough wipe down.
The circles here create a large pocket that some journaling and extra photos have been tucked into.

And a lovely detailed shot of the title.
One thing that I often do (and you can see here) is color rubons. This one blended in with the stamped image on the tag too much so I couldn't leave it black. I used my Uniball Signo white pen and just traced over it which made it more noticeable.

I've decided that I have way too many pictures of T doing cute stuff and am hardly able to keep up with full page layouts. So, this little album will house snapshots of her being her super cute and hilarious self and bits of journaling from my POV.

The cover is all that I have done, but I have a small stack of pictures waiting to be put in here. I'll post pictures of the inside layotus as I complete them.
p.s. This lace stamp is my favorite. Notice I used it on the tag in the layout above?
And I've decided that I need a new camera. I've had mine for almost 4 years and it's becoming obsolete. It only has 5 megapixels and the grainyness of my photo's is really starting to bother me. That and the fact that it's getting harder and harder to snap the pictures that I want. She's too fast and my camera is too slow.
That's all for now.
