Here.

Today, my thoughts are in some whimsical place full of bright colored sunsets and pink sparkly ice cream and sand. =)1. candy pop land, 2. A postcard for the Margarita island, 3. Butterfly Show 2, 4. one with the sea, 5. mmmummm..mummm...mmmmummmmumumum, 6. IMG_7477, 7. Paradise*, 8. Mallorca 2007 -- Waiting for summer to come, 9. Beach fire

But I am stuck here at work...ha ha....=) We had our holiday weekend in Canada last weekend, so work today, it is! I am seriously dying to go somewhere hot and toasty....to bask in some sunsets...to relax on a lawn chair. Lovely...=) So at least my eyes can enjoy that thanks to some gorgeous Flickr love...soooo much inspiring stuff there!

Anyways, hope everyone's weekend was fab! I worked from day til night both days on my animation, but hopefully I'll be done by Friday and can sleep in and be done and enjoy the sunshine!! Yay!! Sooo excited...I have about 6 scenes of 28 left to finish off, so it's going really well!! The end is near, if not right in front of me....=) There were a few ice cream at the beach breaks over the weekend, though...and I have a little bit of pink tan to prove it! hah...and a lovely friend shared some tunes with me and that made the day much more bearable...=) It's hard to work when the sun is shining through the window right beside me!! lol...but I had some Guster, Anna Nalick, and Ting Tings to help me focus.

Oh! I also got this delicious book in the mail:

(Totally borrowed this pic from Elsie's blog...) yesterday and it's amazing!! So happy I snatched one up before they all sold out...I very rarely buy scrapbook goodies anymore, but this one I just couldn't pass up! All the pages are amazing - and it was so awesome to see Rachel and the other girls in it, too! Sooo..inspiring! So it is now waiting for me on my desk, amoung some other new goodies like my May Dozens' kit (there are still a few left!), a Maya Road chipboard tree album, and some lovely Living Room Floor stuff that's waiting to be played with! It's all just accumulating...lol...Can't wait til the end of the week when I can dive into my kit! And have you seen the Red Velvet June kit peek?? Yummy!!

Also, Jodie over at KittyRobot is doing little featurettes on us DT girls every week - this week is moi! Check it out over on the Kittyrobot blog!

Happy day everyone! Here's hoping you dipped your toes in the ocean and had a cone of two over the last few sunny days! =)
