Football & Gas

So, y’all all know I love me some Bama football! We live for football season. My toddler’s nursery is decorated in sophisticated Alabama decor. So when I read this I about fell out of my seat laughing:

Gas shortage leads to fights, threatens college football in South

Athens, Georgia
A petroleum executive suggested that the football game between the University of Georgia and University of Alabama should be canceled this weekend because fans could drain all the gas in the Athens area, WSB-TV in Atlanta reported.

“That gas needs to be used for people to go to work, and for people to take care of their families,” Tex Pitfield, president and CEO of Saraguay Petroleum in Atlanta, told WGAU radio in Athens. Watch an iReporter’s take on the gas shortage in Georgia »

But representatives of Georgia Gov. Sonny Perdue said he would not consider “a ridiculous idea like this,” WSB said.

 

Ridiculous indeed!

Zutter books

Ok, so I officially made it in under the wire for the Zutter Zister’s DT entry. However, last night I dream about an idea. I’m working on these projects for 2 weeks and NOW come up with an idea? Man this stinks. But, this is my idea for future reference. LOL. Instead of tying the ribbon on the binds, on one of them, I should have weaved in and out until the spine was covered and then tied a pretty bow. Oh well. What is done is done!

But, I wanted to show everyone what I did make:

CD Mini-Book.  This uses two CD fronts, a real CD, and alcohol inks!  Loooove me some alcohol inks!

Samples! Samples! Everywhere Samples!

The clock is ticking. Do you hear it? It is telling me that soon (less than 2 weeks) I will be teaching my first classes by myself at a Great American Scrapbook. I am so excited I can’t stand still. I want everything to go perfectly and am trying to remember everything I need to do so that things run smoothly.
Part of that is samples. I love making samples because these samples are using chipboard! CHIPBOARD!!! I love chipboard. LOVE IT! I love that is gives me a 3 demension aspect to my work. I love that it is so darn forgiving. I loove it! Right now I am covering chipboard in tissue paper. Gorgeous aqua-colored tissue paper.
I’m encouraging you today to find something new, intersting and use it to cover some chipboard!!!! Come on you can do it!

Happy Scrappy,
Mandie
