Yup! totally can - this woman still knows how to boogey! Entirely different kettle of fish that it didn't last till dawn as it used to do some 25 years ago ha ha! I had sooo much fun at the party, no kids snickering at the weird moves and no hiding the mojitos from them. Aaaaghh!! killer heels means killer feet ... :))
I've pre-scheduled this post to go live at Tuesday lunchtime European time. I'll check in from work to see that it has worked as planned. (No hubby to do me the honours this time). After a very long blog post last time, this is going to be a short one.
CSI case file nbr 44 was released last Friday US Eastern time. Beeeautiful happy colours and a MASSIVE reveal presenting the new DT's work for the first time. I just say WOWZER!
THE SCHEME (USE ALL 5 COLORS)

EVIDENCE (USE AT LEAST 2 ELEMENTS)
doily pattern (inspired by pillows)
something that rolls up, like the window shades
TESTIMONY (USE AT LEAST 1 ELEMENT)
Document something you love in your home.
Fan mail (inspired by ceiling fan!) Write a fan letter to either someone famous or someone you're close to you. Include details about why you're a fan.
Write your journaling in a swirling shape (inspired by those swirls on the framed print)
Write four things about your subject (inspired by the blades on the fan)
Frame your journaling
Inspiration Words: cheerful, sunny, open -- use these as inspiration for your journaling, not just as a title.
And here is my take that I have called "Nothing Is Like Home";
The papers are from Basic Grey.
My testimony is about something that I love in my home; our balcony.The inspiration words sunny and open are also very much what our balcony is about.
As we live in the city, it is such a blessing to have a balcony and not live on a street that is heavily trafficked. Just outside our balcony, there is a huge maple tree. We follow the seasons in that tree, the first tender green of spring and the blazing orange and yellow of autumn. We have a park on either side of our street and our balcony overlooks both. In the summer we practically live out there and the cats spend all days watching the birds and children playing.
I have flower pots and lanterns, a couple cozy chairs and blankets. It is heavenly to sit out there late on a warm July evening drinking rosé wine and watching the lanterns glowing. The bench in the photo is a symbol for the two parks. The silver numbers "93" are for the street number of our house and the torn strips of muslin are our white linen curtains gently billowing in the breeze. There are stripes in one of the papers under the photo.
I made a small banner from washi tape, I think it is MME.
Our balcony is like a cornucopia of summer memories, from which we draw pleasure during winter. The evidence I have used are the rolled back paper, something woven (the muslin), and flowers.
The frame is not around my journalling, but I tucked it into the floral cluster.
And that's it this time! Thanks ever so much for taking the time to visit me, I really really appreciate it!
So happy that the British TV series "Downton Abbey" is back again. My fave!
Toodelipip! xoxo Eila
