The 90's and Project 365 Week Five...

When I think of the 90's I think of the Seattle Sound of Bands like Nirvana, Soundgarden and Pearl Jam. My favorite of these was Pearl Jam. Eddie Vedder's roaring voice and thought-provoking lyrics totally blew me away. The album "Ten" quickly became an all-time favorite of mine. I remember playing it over and over trying to learn all the lyrics. So, when it came time to make my 1990's edition of the Decades ATC Swap, the subject matter was an obvious choice...
It's a simple ATC. I just scanned the "Ten" CD artwork and shrunk it to fit on my card. Backed it with some grungey patterned paper and attached with some staples. With that, I've now completed four of the five Decades swap cards! I can't wait to see what everyone else came up with for the 1990's! Now I've got to start thinking about the new milennium. Hmmm... What do you think of when you think of music in the 2000's?

Now - on to Project 365! It's the end of the fifth week already!

Monday: I got this idea directly from Becky Higgins. She did a similar photo, and it felt fitting for this day. On my way to a meeting for my new job - a job that will require a lot of traveling...

Tuesday: Urban Hope on my way home from work. Note all the Obama posters in the windows...(remember you can click for a larger view)

Wednesday: This is where all the happy mail arrives. No luck today tho - just tax documents and junk mail.

Thursday: Just a part of my beloved tape collection. This pic reminds me that I need to replace the lightbulbs in the scraproom. These are too yellow.

Friday: Dinnertime for the boys is 11:00 pm. I think they need little pictures hanging on the wall above their dishes - don't you?


Saturday : I am going to print the next two photos 3x4 and put them side by side in the 4x6 pocket. This weekend was project weekend for both Michael and I. Michael was doing taxes and building a new computer...
and I had about a gazillion scrapping projects to do. It was wonderful!

Sunday: It was my lovely friend Bree's birthday today, and I made her this notebook. I'm going to print the photo out small enough to make into a simple 4x6 layout like this one by Becky Higgins. Hers is digital, but I'm going to do mine manually.


A couple more things to note: The Crop Suey kits should be on sale some time today. Keep checking the blog for the reveal. I haven't gotten my kit yet, so I am as excited as everyone to see what they look like!

Elsie Flannigan's Online store called Red Velvet Art was supposed to be open last night, but they've been having some problems with the site. Hopefully it will be up and running today! It looks like it's gonna be awesome!

Scrapping The Music's new song this week is a classic by the Velvet Underground! Check it out!

Alrighty then - that's it for today! Here's wishing you a groovy Monday! I will see you tomorrow!
