Funny projects

Don't forget to put your name in the post HERE, for the giveaway that I'm drawing for on Monday.

::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::

And.... check out the Heartwarming Vintage Blog and get you name in there for a giveaway, of ALL FOUR BOOKLETS.. also!!!
In the new post over there, not only can you get in on the giveaway,..but there is a fantastic project print out sheet. It's a project that my sweet and talented friend ( and CS Design Team Member) ,Janel did...you have to see it. ... it's darling!

:::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::
Look at this little twerp. lol I was looking through photo to find one to use on a School themed layout , that I could use one of the images from the "Childhood" Image&Journal Notes booklet, and decided to use this one. This little dress was actually a "redish" paisley..but just pretend it was pink okay. I laugh every time I see this photo..because my sister loved this dress, and she was the one who helped me get ready for school.. so consequently.. I wore it alot!!! Maybe that's why I'm such a paisley nut.
I used papers from the "Radiant" and "Earthy" Books , Stamps from "Sexy Little numbers", and Image from "Childhood" Image&Journal booklet.

My collar seemed pretty big and pretty white in this photo.. so I added a little foof. Just a little lace and a rose I cut from the paper.
Okay.. I have to tell you , if you would have been a little mouse in the corner of my studio today, you would have thought I was nuts. I was laughing so hard "to myself". No one was home ....just me and the pups. Here's why....
This image is in the "Summertime" Image&Journal Notes Booklet.. and there are two circle that say "Cut out circles"... to put your fingers through for legs. Oh .. of course.. I HAD to do it right way! I don't know why it struck me so funny...but it really did!



This shot really made me really laugh... check out those "thunder thighs" lol... between that and the wrinkles... the similarities to my actual legs was a bit too much... I could hardly control myself. ( I know... too many rainy days lately.. I need to get "out" more) lol ( you can click to see it bigger , if you think you can take it) lol
****************************************************'
If that did make to chuckle... check out this link on You Tube Wes sent me. He's always sending me You Tube links that make me laugh. (hmmm... maybe he needs to get out more often too?)
I didn't laugh the first time...but the second and third times... I had tears rolling.
TALKING CAT

*****************************************************
My friend Chris who lives in Omaha , sent me a nice little note today, and inside was this clipping about "Tilly and the Wall" from the Omaha World Herald. Yep that's my girl... Miss Neely. It's a fun article.. you can click to enlarge the photo , if you want to read it.
Okay everyone ... now run off and enjoy your weekend!!! ( and remember... I tried to make you laugh) ??? lol

I see from the comments that I'm not the only one who had the 'week from hell' and needed the wonderful laughs you provided.
The photo of you as a tot is adorable and reminded me of the dresses mom made me wear that had those big pique collars!
I think all the worst planets are in alignment this week just to torment us earthlings. Squirrels and snakes have made me so anxiety ridden that I could hardly sleep last night. I guess I was lucky that I didn't dream of the snake. Sorry to rain on your perfectly perfect post. Thanks for the memories and the laughs.
Hugs,
Liv
