Take a Picture, It will Last Longer!

Good morning all!

Well, that's me a year older! My birthday was on Monday and I turned 36, jeez Louise I'm getting old LOL. Ok, maybe not THAT old, but certainly on my way ;) Anyway, we had a lovely evening. Hubs wanted to take me out to dinner and a movie, but it being Monday lots of places were shut. We ended up at Micky D's, which was fine with me! We then saw World War Z, which I liked a lot, even though I am really not into scary movies. One reviewer said this is a zombie film for those of us that don't usually like zombie films and I think he hit the nail on the head there; not too scary but still startling and something disturbing (mostly off camera though). Never understood where all the zombies came from, but I guess that really wasn't such a big plot point here.

Anyway, from zombies to crafting, not a small step. Although, after a long crafting session, I might sometimes look like one ;) As it is Thursday, a new Delightful Challenge is starting up, themed "Celebrate with Glitter & Sparkle". I took a short cut for this one, cause even though I had the image coloured and ready to go for ages, I hadn't gotten round to making the card and with the deadline fast approaching and me being so tired I could barely keep my eyes open, I opted for using Glitter CS as a base for my glitter element and combined it with several pieces of scrap DP I have left over from previous projects. I used the Say Cheese Polly, which I think it such a lovely image.I bet it works great with scrapbooking pages too, haven't tried that yet but certainly will!
