Those of you who read my private blog will know that today is not a good day...and to top it, Wynand took the boys to school with my car and some ignoramus reversed into my little car's vender!
So I decided to visit the mall and shop. Something I normally hate with a passion. But I shopped...and tomorrow when the guilt hits me and sanity returns I will just take it back to the store *sigh*
You know I learned a valuable lesson from the Dog Whisperer (TV show), the same thing that works with excited dogs also work with excited promotional ladies that want you to buy their products...the trick is:
NO TALK, NO TOUCH and NO EYE CONTACT.
S.E.R.I.O.U.S.L.Y. It works.
But today I learned that you should never, ever shop when your resistance is low. Those pretty Israeli girls that are promoting the Dead Sea Products in the mall...they are very good sales ladies, I kid you not. This pretty young thing tells me....what are those things?..are they little baggies under your eyes? (OH NO!)
Who wants baggies under their eyes?
So there she got me...hook, line and sinker. I was suckered!
I didn't want the darn products, but at the same time I am impressed with my bargaining skills... I walked out with it at 30% of the original price.
Onto something more exciting, you can go and read about it HERE ;-) I have always been a huge fan of Allison Davis of Sketch Support and her fabulous sketches. If you love using sketches for your scrapbooking go and check out her website, she has amazing double and single layout sketches and some pretty awesome card sketches. I can't believe that I am now part of the creative team...I will have to pinch myself.
Thank you for all the kind comments after my previous post about the Mission. I am planning to do a post once a week about the things that happen at the mission, the happy and the sad.
It is time for the sketch reveal for Sketch no 122 of The Scrappiest. Here is my layout that is based on the sketch:
Here is Liz' sketch:
You are most welcome to play along and upload your layout to The Scrappiest blog.
I could quite honestly not wait to scrap the photos of Lukas that I took of him while he was playing in the rain. I used an Allison Davis sketch and Nikki Sivils papers and embellishments.
Have a great day.
