All Day Marker Class

Well, I'm so excited because I got to take a Copic Marker Certification class yesterday. My friends were teasing me because I spent all day learning how to color with markers, and I paid money to do it! But really, that's what I did and it was worth it in so many ways! Plus, isn't it fun to sit down and color!?

I went home so inspired and I wanted to play with the multiliner professional drafting pen they gave us so I picked up an old botched attempt at an ATC and "fixed" it up! Face stamp is by Club Stamp and I think the sentiment is from Stampin' up. The tiny text is just some drivel I wrote: "Do robots dream of electric sheep? Do sheep dream of dancing humans? Will humans learn to get along with each other? Are we human or are we dancer? Are dolphins smarter than yuppies? What is the meaning of life the universe and everything? Will you dance with me in the clouds? What does a cat really think about while asleep? Do they debate philosophy with each other or do they think they are the center of the universe and the rest of us really don't matter?"

The background of the ATC and the face details are enhanced with some Copic markers. I like how it highlighted his face and really made the pattern on the paper stand out. I wish I had taken a "before" picture so you could see how it changed.

Picture to make you laugh!

Need I say more? We had a great time, even though my blue 70's eye-shadow faded after the first hour and my Janice Joplin wig came off. Matt looked pimperific all night and Uncle Bill even danced. Laurel was the prettiest prom queen ever! And boy am I sore from trying to dance like we did in the 80's!

Just a short explanation: My crazy cousin likes to do theme parties and when she was younger her school was so small they didn't have a prom. So since that was 20 years ago and her stupid school didn't even have a reunion, she decided to make her own prom! It was all her friends and their kids so it was an all-ages bash! Everyone went retro with outfits from the 50's through today's fashion!

Pictures to make you smile!

Sorry I've been ignoring everyone lately! Thought I'd post pics to make you smile! Aren't they just the cutest!?

Here's a preview of what Matt will be wearing to Laurel's prom party! This will be a crazy, fun event! Oh, yeah--I think he's lookin' mighty pimp-a-licious, pimp-tastic and pimp-a-riffic! I'll post real pics of us after tomorrow!

I found the perfect 80's dress for myself and it was on sale too! Unfortunately, the sale price was $175 so I didn't get that one, LOL! I got the 70's dress instead that was only $30 and it matches Matt's costume better. I was so excited when it arrived in the mail and fit perfectly! Yahoo for polyester--only for you, Laurel will I wear poly interlock, LOL! Tomorrow I have to get some fake eyelashes, blue eyeshadow and hopefully some tacky "suntan" pantyhose!
