Nike Pink Shocks

My daughter was so excited when we went to Dillard's and the Nike Shocks were 75% off! Can you believe it? We got this pink pair for $14.95 regular price was $55. Can't beat that price. I ended up getting her two pairs. For this layout I used Manda Bean's and Robin Carlton's Isn't She Lovely kit, available at SweetShoppeDesigns, fonts are Melissa Baxter's Lipgloss and Barcode font. Frame made with cookie cutter tool.

Sand Painting by Tibetan Monks

This sand painting is just amazing. The Tibetan Monks are at the university I work at doing a sand painting. It's really incredible what they are doing. They use an instrument called a chak-purr and it lets a small amount of sand out and they guide it over a table that they have drawn the outline on. The top photo is my daughter with one of the monks. They are so nice and my daughter is quite sad that they will be leaving tomorrow. They have spent many, many hours on this painting and the closing ceremony is tomorrow.

Birthday scraplift

I did the above layout for a birthday scraplift on 2Peas website for Cindy Liebel. She did a gorgeous layout of her and her husband, called "I love this man."

Tonight I took my daughter, Julia, to see a sand painting being done by some Tibetan Monks. It is really quite something to see. I took some photos and will post them on here soon. They were also selling silk purses, CDs, rings, necklaces, t-shirts, all kinds of stuff. The proceeds go towards the monastery. So of course I bought some stuff. I'm going back tomorrow too. It takes them 2 1/2 days to finish the painting.
