This week's challenge at Scrapping the Music is Daydream as performed by Jason Castro, whom I gather, was a contestant on American Idol.  If you can believe this, I've only watched AI a few time, and only because I was at someone else's house and was forced to watch it. (Hi Aldien!)  I think this song was originally sung by the Lovin' Spoonful.  (I don't really like reality tv, well...except for paranormal stuff.  heh!)

I wasn't feeling very creative this weekend...I've been detoxing again, and all I could think of is when can I eat some meat!  (Thursday, day 11!)  And please, oh please, can I have just one glass of wine?  It was a struggle to come up with anything.  I do like the colors a lot.  I used Michelle Clement's Walnut Ink Tutorial to grunge up the edges and added some spatters. (Or splatters? Or can I say Jackson Pollock technique : .)  There's a bit of velvet on there too.  And the cute picture was taken by my little friend Cady.

I've also been brainstorming "eye-deas" for gift bags for my friends for our annual girls trip to Disneyland next month, so I played around with my reaper stamp and made some tags for the bags, lol!  I'll unveil those soon, they're very similar to the ATC in my last post.  We'll be there Halloween weekend, (which is my favorite "holiday" next Christmas and my birthday) and I like to put together some fun stuff for the weekend.  We've got a scavenger hunt planned, search for Hidden Mickeys, dinner at Bleu Bayou, and viewing the new Disney's World of Color, and SHOPPING!!!  I'm so excited!!!  (I looooovvvveeee Disney's marketing! Those Imagineers, they're geniuses!!!)

Other new developments...(the hot) Dr. Steve thinks I have a stress fracture in my right foot.  That wouldn't be a big deal, but I have a half marathon in 2 weeks, and I'm supposed to be in training for Disneyworld Marathon in January.  Here I thought, third time's the charm.  It makes me sick to think that I might have to bail again!!!   I have an appointment with a podiatrist next Monday (That was the earliest appointment, made last week! What a popular guy.  sigh.), so I hope I'll hear good news.  Bad news would be having to be in a boot for 6 weeks.  ai yi yi!!!  At least I haven't booked any flights or travel.  I did buy a 2010 Birnbaum's guide to Disneyworld, maybe I'll sell that on craigslist or something...I know I won't even want to look at it.

Aaaah, sorry for ending on such a downer...I think I'll go to my happy place now : .)

Love this - the splatters are fab.
I have never watched an episode of idol either and have no idea about survivor etc (although I am a sucker for amazing race but that is IT!!). Oh and the latest where a bride gets extreme plastic surgery - what on earth is that about???

Good luck with the stress fracture x

ok, i am all in favor of finding excuses to see (hot) DR STEVE!!! but sheesh you don't really have to INJURE your poor foot again...just PRETEND, silly!!!!!!!!!!! (sending "good news from the podiatrist" vibes your way! one of the many specialist vibes available from lauren dot com!!!) :)

btw, this LO is ♥AWE♥SOME♥ much so that i am willing to overlook the fact that "the lovin' spoonful" will now be in my head for the rest of the day!

ps: re the imagineers, also MY fave disney thing by far. i love THIS book: also, if you DO get to go, (which i hope hope HOPE!!!) you have to see THIS display: my very favorite thing at any disney park, all about walt and the imagineers and the IDEAS behind all the other stuffs! BRILLIANT!
