Be Inspired Challenge #8

Happy Friday!! Hooray! And I got a chance to try one of Beate's Inspiration Challenges last night. This is Inspiration Challenge #8 based on the picture below. (I love that dress, but it's definitely not made for a short, round person!) At first I started to replicate the inspiration piece very literally, but then decided to be a little more funky and have fun with it. I wanted to use a green ribbon originally for the flower stems, but I could not find one narrow enough with a color I liked, so I used the paper piercer to punch holes diagonally and make faux stitches.

Two last things...were any American Idol watchers shocked about Michael Johns going away last night? Boo! Hoo! I was worried about Brooke, so I voted for her, never dreaming Michael would be in trouble. I don't think he's the best, but he's definitely better than three others I can think of. Darn! And second...if you go to Starbucks I tried a new drink you might like. I usually get the White Mocha (I'm a sweetaholic!), but I tried one Caramel pump in place of one White Mocha pump, and it was the yummiest!! Another coffee shop I go to has a drink like that so not sure why I never thought to have Starbucks try one like that.

Okay, that's it for now! I'm afraid I'm going to regret staying up until 12:30 last night...somehow convinced myself that it would be okay since I had a 30 minute nap and today would be Friday. The kids will be testing this morning, then I'm interviewing new teachers for next year from 12:00 on, so I guess I'll make it! Hope you have a great Friday!

Great job with the inspiration challenge! And yes, I was VERY surprised that Michael left last night. From his face, he was pretty surprised and dismayed also!

I am sooooo sad about Michael Johns...I had the same shocked look as Paula! I thought exactly the same thing....not the best but way better than a few that are still there...hope we will here something soon! :)

The other day when I was driving down the highway singing ABBA music at the top of my lungs, you happened to pop into my head and I was thinking "I picture Angie as being a tall person but I bet she's short!" Ha
