FWF is Such a Treat

Hey there everyone! I'm taking a chance today and posting with dial up. If this goes wonky, please accept my apologies!
Only one more week until we move and then we'll have real internet again! Wooohoo!!!

Okay, now that I have that out of my system, guess what? It's Friday and that means it's time for Friends with Flair! Check out the Unity Blog for a full list of participants. As usual, somebody is hiding that elusive blinkie. Find it, leave a comment, and you could win some Unity goodness!

I am Etsy Inspired again. The shop this week is called My Zeotrope. I tried not to, really, as I wanted to do a layout this week, with my new Donna Downey gigantoid stamps, but I kept seeing all these little dessert prints, like this adorable cupcake, that reminded me of the Cherry on Top kit from the Caffinated Cropper (now sold out, but her newest one has just been released and it looks totally fab!), so I took the hint and put my layout away, since it just wasn't coming together.

NOT. AT. ALL.

I think my card, however, came out pretty well, especially considering that I pulled the parts together at about 3 this morning and then left them on my desk to actually assemble and photograph when I got up this morning. Sleep was necessary.

I've used Laura's Sketch #54 from 2 Sketches 4 You. The cherry and sentiment are from one of my fav Unity KOTMs, June '09, Perfect in Every Way.Today we're taking a trip down to Walter Reed to get the results of some neuropsych testing that was done for both our younger son and our youngest daughter. After that, it's back to packing. We're really lucky in that we'll be able to move some boxes into the new garage already. I think I love our new landlords!

Oh, and for those who are interested, it's not our car, but those are two of my kids. Check out the new digs!
