finally, some art to share.

feels like it's been forever!
nothin like a little dare action to put me in the sharing mood.
the one, the only, the amazingly inspirational ae brought this dare to us and extends it to you.
play - it's fun.

may i just say...i'm a last-minute person.
many of you know...surgery was monday night.
did i have my dare done? no.
did i think about it as i was awaiting the trip up to the OR?
yes. i even mentioned something out loud to dren about bringing my scrap stuff to recovery.
he thought i was joking. i did not laugh.
thank goodness i was out of the hospital...the mama probably would not have allowed it.
but i snuck in some scrap time on the couch yesterday.
thankully, i had printed pix on sunday...planning ahead...who knew!?
chopped and rubbed and stuck and inked...for about a good 4 hours.
let's just say i was NOT speed scrapping yesterday.
it was fun though. but man...i never knew scrapping could be so exhausting!


i encourage you to think in an observational way.
it's very interesting and eye-opening.
then translate it artistically.
can't wait to see the creativity that comes out of this one.
thanks ali!

{{{{Gen}}}} I just saw on L-M. Wow- glad you're in recovery mode now, but take it easy, ok? Let 'em wait on you a bit. You're cracking me up wanting to take scrap stuff to the hospital- now that's a devoted scrapper! :)

Saw your Go See page from The Dares website which I just discovered last night after reading Ali Edwards website. Your page is amazing, really intelligent, clever, visually appealing and so unique. Was it a mixture of digital and scrapbooking? Anyway, I'm new to scrapping and digital stuff, so your work is a great inspiration to me.
