Alter Ego

Just a quick hello and new layout before I go to work at the bookstore. (I got a little mojo yesterday and finished 3 layouts.) Some good news -my layout "Joy" done with Harlee-Quinnz Designs stamps and paper was published on page 16 of the November/December issue of Scrap n' Art magazine (Yay!!!!), I won a giftcard from Scrapgal for the 10days of Halloween contest (Yay!!!!), and last night we received 2 1/2 inches of rain (Yay!!!!! to explain how thankful we are for that rain, you have to realize that we only received 1/2 inch in October instead of our usual 5 inches).
Over the weekend I watched the DVD Inkheart and fell in love with the incredible house in which Helen Mirren lived - that is my fantasy!!!! I think it is on the Italian Riviera but it's not just the outside which was incredible - the inside, especially the library, was totally perfect. I also loved the clothes in the movie - Meggie, the young heroine, wore a coat that had all kinds of buttons sewn on the collar (such a cool idea) and I could totally see myself wearing the clothes that Helen Mirren wore (but not the earrings - too huge!)
Gotta go - hope to write again later in the week.

CONGRATS on the pub & the wins! How fun & well deserved, too!

That new LO is really cool, Chris! I always ♥ the way you mix products & found things together!

I've never seen Inkheart, but I may have to rent it now just to see that coat, if for no other reason! :-)

Have a GREAT week, Chris! Hope you get ALL of the rain we were getting back home! :-)
