He's Got Magnificent Feet...

Hey everybody! It's movie tribute week at Scrapping The Music, and this month we are featuring the title song from the movie "Footloose!" Here's what I created...
The name Footloose made me think of feet which made me think of this little duck that we saw in San Diego. Aren't his feet amazing!?!?!!! Talk about fantastic camouflage. Here's the full picture of what he looked like standing in the weeds...


It's kinda funny cuz his feet are fantastically camouflaged, but then he's got this big round black body that stands out like crazy - so, ummm, what good do the camouflaged feet do? Unless, maybe they are meant to camouflage him from someone/thing that swims under him in the water??? Maybe that's it. In any case I just love the little guy - he's adorable!

Hey, guess what? There's a new scrapbooking community/challenge! I just found out about it yesterday and it's called "The Color Room." Lots of people are joining already and it looks like they are going to have different challenges every week, like color combos, sketches and techniques! The first challenge is already up and it's a gorgeous color combo! Click here if you want to check it out!

Congratulations are in order for my friend and Fave Things cohort Jamie Dougherty! She made the new design team for Couture Cardstock! Check it out here! Congratulations Jamie!!!

Look what I found on ebay! It's a 4+ lb. lot of vintage ephemera, and I had the winning bid with only $7.00!!! It came in the mail yesterday and it's even more fun than I imagined! There are things in it like letters from the early 1900s, receipt books, old travel diaries, ads for everything from old felt hats to fishing bait. Now I just have to figure how to work it into my art! Hmmmm... I love a challenge!

Have you ever gotten something really cool from ebay? If so, what was it? I would love to hear!

Alrighty, I am really behind on my projects, so I'm off to start making stuff. Have a fabulous Friday my friends!
