Today you are you,

....so how excited was I when I got to use my fave Dr. Suess quote on a page?? yay! The newest Dr.Suess-inspired challenge is up at Scrapmojo: Head on over to pick from one of the quotes to use on your page, and also grab a link to a cute book cover to use as inspiration for the sketch of your page. I used this one:Love me some Dr. Suess! (Bekka just reminded me that this is, in fact, where my odd blog title address came from) I'm also super-excited about "Horton Hears a Who"...that book was one of the most influential books on my 8-year old mind, I remember...it was so freakin cool that there's a little world in a speck!! eek! I still remember to this day being blown away by the idea when I read it...lol...can't wait to see the movie!

Hmm...what else? It's Friday and suddenly I have a lot of freelance concepts to work on, as well as a custom etsy card order (love custom orders!! they're so fun!) the painting is done, it just has to be sealed and photographed, which I'm dreading cuz our apartment is so teeny there's always some kind of distracting background goin on...I started a new mixed-media felt/acrylic paint/collage project last night...whee! Should be a busy artsy weekend...I haven't scrapped forever, either! Dying for my Dozens' kit to play with!

Oh! One of my lil owl cards was featured on the lovely Cuteable blog yesterday....there are some wonderful finds there! There's also a cuteable flickr group...love flickr groups! And I also ran across a posting of Etsy's 100 great artists, a whole bunch of awesome illustrators/artists/mixed-media collages/painters....go check it out for some serious inspiration! Annnd...I can't believe I didn't have Scrapscene linked up til recently; there are some other great places that they mentioned recently here. There's also a list of fab people who link up to them here that I had fun browsing through..some familiar faces, there! =) he he...

That's all for today....Happy weekend, everyone! =) Hope it's sunshiney and fun!

So when I saw this layout on SIS I was like, where on earth did she come up with that idea for the side of your layout (because it rocks!) and now that I see the book cover it totally makes sense! love it!

Have a great Easter weekend!

wow. I love love love your layout! :) I so enjoy it that your LOs are always wonderful and colourful. i don't really know anything at all about dr.seuss, but I think that this quote is just fantastic. I have already written it down for myself. I wonder if you will see that in one of my LOs, too.

Too cute! I totally knew you'd pick that quote since its your blog title. I didn't know it was Dr. Seuss until then.. What book is it from?
