Surprise #3 + Personalia

Anyone sensing a theme tonight? I cannot sit on a card. I must must share it immediately. I guess it's just as well I'm on no design teams or getting published (ha ha! you can't win if you don't enter!!) I'd hate to keep things under wraps for months on end.

Anyway, I also finished my layout for Kristina's ATC swap. I'm really happy with it. I hope everyone else in the group is too! OK, by now, y'all know the drill ...

Wait for it!

Are you sure you want to peek?

Here you go ...

All images by A Muse. The patterned paper is by Basic Grey (Hippie from the Romani line) the rest is by SU! The brad is from Joann's and that there prima ... it's actually ORANGE. I don't know why it looks red. I sponged the edge of my marvy giga scallop rhombus ... no, square (just checking to see if you're paying attention) with lime green colorbox chalk ink. I used my blender pen and ink from the ink pad lids to color the word "super" -- love it! Also, there's a little A Muse twinkle sticker on the super's belt.

I also finished the layouts for my three swaps. I will try my hardest to sit on these until they mail out. I may not be able to resist my urge to post every last living thing though so no guarantees!

On a personal note yesterday was our SEVEN year wedding anniversary. We celebrated by going to the same restaurant we always go to, Le Fou Frog. If you're ever there, you absolutely must get the Moules Marinieres ou Marseillaises (in white wine, bien sur!). O. M. G.!!!!! Seriously. If it were socially acceptable I would've licked the bowl. It's one of my favorite dishes of all time. What a treat. Anyway, I thought I'd post a little personal picture just for fun tonight. Just so I don't get sued or anything, I'll preface this by saying, I DID NOT TAKE THIS PHOTO! (Well, I took a picture of Isaac's picture, actually ... it's up on my magnet board over my craft space.) Our wedding photographer, Isaac Alongi, took the original photo. He is amazing. We were lucky enough to have him shoot our wedding way before his prices got as insanely high as they are now. (WOW!) We did splurge somewhat on the photos (it was one of the only areas we did that) and they were worth every single cent. Anyway, enough of my rambling ... (sigh)

Happy Anniversary to us!

And, if you've managed to get this far ... I have another little surprise for you. Actually, I'm just going to say that I will have a little craft related announcement on Tuesday (hopefully!). Nothing too too big mind you, Linda didn't call and ask me to be her best buddy, but it's flattering and exciting nonetheless and I look forward to sharing.

All the "surprises" were so cool! I can't wait to see what you did for your card and ATC swaps! Looking forward to your news -- are you going to be published? Have you been invited to be design team member? DO TELL!

P.S. Happy anniversary!

Hi Sarah,
I just found your blog last week while looking at AP Ambassador participants' blogs. I like your work! I'll be checking in tomorrow to see what news you have to share...(I think I *might* know)

That card is great! I love the different colors in 'SUPER'! And happy late anniversary! Hope you had a good one!

GinaP said...

Happy Anniversary! What a wonderful photo, too... it looks like something out of a pro magazine or a movie. Love it! 7 years and counting, eh?! GREAT!

As for your SUPER card, it's tooooooo cute! Love that too! That little superhero stamp is just too adorable!

Thanks for sharing both with us.
