Sisterhood Journal page and Color of Summer is Purple!

Well I am very slowly getting there I think... finally can load my camera and my printer now works.. I really hate figuring out this techie stuff but it's been harder not being home much either...all of these things take sheesh ... go figure! When I downloaded and installed Firefox it said it successfully got all my bookmarks from IE.. but so not sure where they went.. or any kind of tool bar
I did finish up my Summer of color Purple page though.. you can't see in the pic but it has a top layer of clear sparkle paint on it..
I am so sorry that I have missed everyone's red pages and probably will miss most of the purple too.. there isn't a day that I will be home or have family here over the next 10 days.. I am hoping I can catch up and see everyone's arty pieces once the wedding etc is over....
I finally finished Eva's June book pages and got it sent off to Lori on Friday for the Sisterhood of the Traveling Sketchbook.. so here it is.. I hope she likes's a combo of acrylics, wax pastels and paper...

I was so lucky.. I was a little ticked when I went to Michael's after my computer died because I hadn't had a chance to print off the coupons.. first person I saw when I walked in was a friend.. laughing I said you didn't happen to print off extras did you? well..... she had printed off them all.. so she gave me some artsy ones she said she wouldn't use.. and I got a set of wax pastels and AND.... the Inktense watercolor pencils I have been wanting forever for 40% off.. whoo hooo!!!!
Anyways the sale is tomorrow.. will have some gorgeous pics of Lake Winnipeg to show you I hope.. car is packed and I am soooooo ready for bed... it was a very long day at work today.. craziness abounds.. school supplies coming in like crazy.. and need to be put out asap...
Sweet Dreams.. have a great night.. talk to you all again soon... I

  7. Ooh, PURPLE! And I love those beautiful June pages you did for Eva's book. They're gorgeous, you did a great job!

    It can be sort of annoying to try and figure out new techie things - I'm always afraid I'll ruin something, which is why when there's something to download on my computer I let Dad do it. ;) I'm sure you'll get the hang of your computer soon if you keep working at it, though! :) At least if you couldn't print out your own coupons, your friend was there to give you a few. :) That's what friends are for, right? ;D LOL

  8. Alright! computer is up and working, awesome art supplies at huge discounts,hummingbirds, flowers and purple! Wheeee!

  11. Computer stuff stinks, doesn't it? I'm so glad I have a computer savvy husband who fixes all of my problems for me... ;) I LOVE your pages, that one with the hummingbird is fabulous, although the purple is pretty striking too!
