Random Art and Silliness

This is a tag I made for a friend who is turning 50 this year. I did it digitally and then added the hat, pink jewel and lace on the bottom after printing.

This is a 4x4 tip in page I made for a swap in my Mixed Media Madams group. The theme chosen by the recipient was "Grandmother's Sewing Basket". As I was humiliated and tortured by a 7th Grade Home Economics teacher, I do not sew. So instead I decided to make a page that looked sewn with digital scrapbooking elements. The poem is by me - It's not great literature, but tells the story of this page well enough, I think. :) I'm thinking of adding a few things once I print it out. Maybe a button or two and some lace.

And lastly, here is some random silliness from my honey Shea's workmates! He has three Meercats on his desk along with a palm tree for fun. When he is gone, he has the "meercats" send everyone silly emails. Well, he took the friday before Valentine's off and when he returned on Monday, they had all the Meercats smeared with cupcake frosting! There were crumbs everywhere, one was head first into the cupcake and they even sprinkled meercat "poop" all over his desk! Heh! I think silliness like this really makes going to work a lot nicer, don't you?! I wish I worked there too! :)

Have a nice weekend all! Don't forget to hug your honeys and your furry pals! And please, make sure you stop at all the red lights! Nothing is so important that cannot wait just a few seconds more for the light to change! Smooch!
