You know how much I love photography. 20+ years as a professional photographer probably gives that away. I also love scrapbooking. Once a month, I meet my sister and two friends at a local scrapbook store and we crop and crop and crop till we’ve had our fill for the month. Most often we just talk and laugh and talk and laugh and eat snacks, but sometimes we actually get some pages completed.
A couple of weeks ago, we all met for our monthly crop. However, this crop was an all day thing. Woo hoo. 12 hours of solid scrapbooking bliss. As per our usual course of events, we messed around for a good while before we jumped right in for a day of creative genius. Yeah.
Something extra special about this all day crop thing – there was a theme. Ooooh, cool. The theme was Glitz and Glamour. Hmm, what to do, what to do. My sister immediately came to the rescue. Seems she has collected (for some reason) a treasure trove of blingy stuff. She had tiaras to share. Who has more than one tiara? Better yet, who has even one tiara?
Look how pretty Kim is. Work it, girl.
Jeanine chose a lovely sparkly headband. Matches her eyes.
Sheri opted for the shiny crystal hair clip. It matched her shiny gemstone ring, you know, the one she ordered that she thought was a whole lot smaller than it was in real life. Oh, and all this coordinated with her big, shiny, blingy cross. Again with the looked-a-whole-lot-smaller-in-the-catalog-than-it-is-in-real-life thing. Marvy.
I felt so special in my Queen Crown. And my huge and long strand of pearls.
For some odd reason, my sister ALSO had a couple pairs of false eyelashes. I’ve always wanted to try these out. So we did. The glue is pretty tricky. I don’t think I applied it correctly. All day long, I kept seeing a blob of the stuff in the corner of my eye. I finally pulled these things off after a few of hours. Yuck. But the glue was still stuck to my real eyelashes. Yuck. I am positive that I will never wear these things again.
Ah, the price we
Have you ever worn false eyelashes? What about a tiara? Have you ever been an ACTUAL Queen?
