BARB'S ROPE ALPHA


Now, with this alpha, I highly suggest you add your own drop shadows and use an OUTER bevel to bring it to it's potential. If you're a newbie to scrapping and don't know how to do this and are working with Photoshop you can always ask me and I will see if we can work thru that together! More zoo animals are on the way.


I'm sorry if I've not been about - I'm currently help my dearest prepare our income taxes, finish up a website (ugh - proofing!) and I'm designing a cd cover for a little girl who has luekemia and I'm packing as well. Thus today's entry will be short but sweet.



THE REASON ONE SHOULD FOCUS ON EATING ONLY...

(poor DH!)

I just wanted to share a picture with you, of interest - it's about the Grand Canyon Skywalk which I was learning about on BBC radio last night. It will be opening almost immediately. It belongs to the Hualapai Indian Reservation. I heard the natives saying while some are very opposed as they feel this is very sacred ground, others are hopeful this venture will be the ticket to give hope and jobs to the young people. Whichever, it seems to inspire a passion to these people.

The skywalk juts 70 feet out into the canyon - 4000 feet above the Colorado River. It can hold up to 120 people comfortably. It was built with a million feet of steel beams. It was designed to hold 72 million pounds, stand under an 8.0 magnitude earthquake 50 miles away and be able to take in excess of 100 mile per hour winds. The bottom and sides are glass, 4 inches thick.

BARB'S HANDY TIP #226

Let Them BUG You!

I know, Moms... you hate the thought of bugs in your house but lets face it... it's inevitable your child will be fascinated enough to want to adopt one of those interesting critters. Well, if you find yourself in that situation you may need to know the care of the little fella.... fortunately there is a website just for this purpose.

  2. Hiya Barb!
    Well I'm glad you managed to find time to blog today. Seems you have a full plate this week. Thank you for the alpha- it's cute. I'm glad you like me razzing you since you seem to razz me too I figured you were fair game. As to "neiner" that's what my siblings and I would say to each other as we stuck our tounges out at each other. It's a friendly taunt filled with love and giggles.
    Hope you get everything done that needs doing.
    Hugs,
    -Amy
