What is your favorite tv show?

Join us at http://whatisyourfavething.blogspot.com/ for our newest challenge - what is your favorite tv show? I admit that I don't watch much tv - we used to watch a fair amount of it when we were younger but we were without a tv for most of the time that we lived on the boat (no signal anyway in the Bahamas or elsewhere) and we got very used to not watching it. I always loved Masterpiece Theater on PBS and still do - so many great classics, so many wonderful mysteries, so many gorgeous men! So here's my layout - we watched Sharpe on Sunday night and there will be another episode of Sharpe next Sunday night. My DH has read all of the Sharpe books - Dan really enjoys books about the Napoleonic wars, more naval than land, but he reads them all. Needless to say, he has read all of the O'Brian books several times and loves Master and Commander.
The layout is done on some Scrap in Style paper by Kerry Lynn (no longer available) called Pemberley (is that not the perfect paper for this layout?). I also used a Hambly transparency (what will happen when I finally use all of them ? I am using them on everything.), some Glimmerchip  frames and crowns that I misted and inked, a Webster's Pages cameo, and some vintage flowers.
Yesterday I started a new class called Drawing with Mixed Media, and I was so excited to learn new techniques. However, we spent 2 1/2 hours yesterday morning coloring in a color chart with colored pencils - I was bored to tears so I asked the teacher exactly what we would be doing in the class as it was advertised that we would be working with new and experimental techniques and materials - he said that we would be using pencils for several weeks, then a bit of pen and ink, and finally some acrylic washes. I was not happy (to put it mildly) so I went straight to the office, withdrew from the class, and got my money back. It is too late now to get in another class but I will definitely take another watercolor class in the fall.
I have a post up today on the http://thegalblog.blogspot.com/ with some cards that I made.
Tomorrow we are going to Epcot for the day - I have my camera battery all charged and I am ready to take lots of photos. The weather is supposed to be beautiful!
Hope you have a great day!
