Lottery Winner!!

What would you do if you won $50 million dollars playing the lottery?
That was the question posed to me, and fellow "Circle Journal.ers,"
in Mz. Jennifer Priest's Circle Journal assignmnet that she submitted for
the Pink Pineapple Design Team "CJ group".
Jennifer wanted her album to be pink, lime and black....I have to admit that was a challenge for me, so I hope it turned out ok and she likes it will be in HER book!
We were to write a list of things we would do with the $50 million (well...the $25 million after Mr. Sam's cut) and then add pictures of places, things, etc. of what we would do with our winnings. I didn't think it would be very fun to just have a picture of my church and bank in the Circle I went with the vacation spots and a waterfront property.
Ahhh....I must say, I had to rack my brain for quite a while to try to come up with stuff to spend all that money on.
So, my list was pretty boring....tithe to my church (OF COURSE), trust funds for the kids, cash in the bank, pay off the house and bills.....but here's the good fun stuff.......BEACH FRONT house in Carlsbad, MANY vacations, my hubby wants a boat and a "sports" know, the mid-life crisis type....never did think of anything I wanted personally. Oh wait!!!! NEW BOOBS....darn it....that's not on the list and I already turned it in! Oh well, now the world's just not in Jen's book...hehe.
I have Mz. Gloria Kings Circle Journal to do next.....can't wait to get started!!

ATC Peek.....

My dear friend Ally is hosting ATC swap's these days and I just HAD to take part!! Our challenge was to create an ATC (Artist Trading Card) using transparencies. ATC's are 3 1/2 x 2 1/2 fun little cards to trade with your friends (or in this case, random people that have decided to join Ally in her quest for ATC goodness). The goodies I decided to use in my card were a Hambly transparency (the bright orange with the owl perched on a branch in the bottom corner...which is NOT displayed on the cards due to size constraints), a piece of Creative Imaginations pink die-cut dot paper, turquoise glitter ribbon, an acrylic stamp (actually two) that says..."Be... You" stamped inside another acrylic stamp which is a conversation bubble outlined in dots, a Maya Road frosted flower that I painted using Lil Davis sheer green paint, an iridescent flower crumpled up and layered inside the other flower and fastened together with a rhinestone brad. Had to use some pop-dots here and there to add dimension, oh yes and a splash of orange stickles here and there. Pretty simple, but fun and cute. Our next ATC challenge is to use glitter.....ok....SO excited about that one.

Oh yeah...and my digital camera is on the blink from being dropped on my kitchen floor by my daughter (accidentally), so the photo here of my ATC is not that great...they are actually MUCH cuter in person....if I do say so myself....and I DO!! HEHEH
