Lookie What I FOUND in MUNICH!!



Isn't he just the CUTEST??? I think I will take him HOME with me!! I look pretty crummy in this picture (in Devan's words? "Mom, you look pretty beat!"). Ouch!! The truth hurts! I had been up for about 32 hours when this picture was taken. I WILL look better after a good night's sleep, that's for sure!




And . . . as promised . . . here is Beginner Ugly Card #1. To be fair, the biggest problem I had with my early cards was color. I remember when my friend got me started with Stampin' Up I had been scrapbooking for several years. I had accumulated a LOT of cardstock. So, although I bought the inks from SU, I refused to buy the cardstock, 'cause I had accumulated so much lovely cardstock over serveral years. The scariest part? I actually thought that some of these looked GOOD, baby. WhatEVUH!! I only post these to prove that i was not ALWAYS as Wickedly Wonderful as I have become. So, SEE JAN, I think we ought have an ugly card contest and see who WINS! Mine just go from bad to worse, seriously. I am not even going to bother listing supplies so that I may protect the innocent . . . notice how I didn't even wrap the ribbon around the cardstock (trying to be frugal!). I cut it right at the edge of the card, which means it started to fray. It doesn't even MATCH the cardstock! Sheesh!!

I will update with more trip photos and MORE ugly cards when I get internet connections . . . stay tuned (and Jan, if you are reading this, I am SURE I have you BEAT girl!!)!
