Sleepless in Seattle - NO! Sleepless in LA - YES!

Our visit to Seattle was short but sweet. I have fallen in love with salted caramels, which are apparently a Seattle specialty. Definitely head over heels and if you have never tasted a salted caramel let me warn you that they are addicting. I made a simple file-folder mini to fill with memories of our trip and although I haven't had time to complete it, the cover is done. You can view the video HERE.

The Purple Cafe was our favorite restaurant but their card is brown.
Go figure? It's Seattle!

We returned home with great anticipation of the delivery of our new, very expensive latex bed. Hate it! I spent Saturday night on the sofa and last night was the husband's turn. The salesman warned us that we would hate it at first. I thought he was being facetious so I didn’t ask him when we would start liking the bed. Can hate turn to love or is that just a bad romance novel plot?

I have said it before, but it deserves repeating. The best thing about blogging and all this YouTubing is making friends. I just received a very special surprise from SuperTinaFey. She viewed the video I had made about the Bird Flu and commented that unlike me, she didn’t own much bird crap. So, I sent her a paltry little RAK of tweety items. Imagine my surprise when I found a package from her in my mailbox. I will now have to rethink my relationship with birds because this tag is gorgeous. SuperTinaFey you rock girlfriend! Many, many thanks.
You can see the Bird Flu video HERE. If you watch it you will be under no obligation to send me a tag, but if you do, it will be greatly appreciated. LOL

Goodbye Cruel World

Ladies and Gentlemen and children of all ages welcome to the Greatest Show on Earth!

This week the Circus is coming to Los Angeles and to commemorate the occasion and for your viewing enjoyment let me introduce the one and only Le Cirque mini album and Circus wagon. (applause)

Whenever anyone mentions the Circus I get a giggle in the pit of my stomach. Unless you suffer from coulrophobia or a hard core animal activist, no matter how old you are, there is something for everyone at the Circus. Popcorn, beautiful ladies atop dancing horses, trapeze artists that fly through the air with the greatest of ease and best of all the tiny car filled with a never ending bevy of clowns. As a child I could never understand how so many men could fit into that tiny car. I mean, I had trouble sitting in the backseat with just my two sisters.

My absolutely favorite circus is not Cirque du Soleil ( a close second) but Lady Circus, an all women troupe out of New York City. The performers are all amazing but my favorite is the glass walker. She is beautiful, talented and best of all, she is my daughter. I quite literally hold my breath every time I see her perform, and although I trust her ability, I always carry extra band aids.

The STAR of this year's Circus!

This was easy peasy to make! A bit of paper, glue, ribbons and charms
and voila, the Circus is in town!! 

I added Glitz Afternoon ephemera to the mini.

Only 14 tags so Dr. Scrapman's treatment is definitely working.
My Tiny Tag Syndrome (TTS) is under least for now.

To see more of my mini watch the movie HERE.

Let's talk Circus. Like it? Hate it?
