One new LO

So I felt like creating another LO for last week's challenge at the Spraground, I really liked the grungy color requirements. I had fun with it. I created the background, then added a ghostbone texture to it, threw on some elements and voila. The picture is from about 1964, I think, that's me on the right, my younger sister is standing in front of me. The rest are girls we were hanging with from Church and/or school, I can't even remember, and that bothers me. I remember some of the faces, 2 girls I was really good friends with, but the others, whe knows. Of course it was a really long time ago. The photo wasn't very good, it was a scan of an old picture, but I used one of K.Pertiet's dirty frames over it, so it looks kind of grungy. I like the effect.

It has been raining a lot here lately, and it is quite chilly. That makes it a little harder to get a nice picture for the photo a day challenge. I went out yesterday to take this picture. I was pretty wet when I came back in. I really wanted to get a raindrop picture though, I saw Hedderlee's header and loved it!!! I have been looking for a lovely branch like that since, LOL. This will have to do for now.

The kids had their piano evaluations yesterday, so we still had to get up early, since they had to be there at 8.20AM. Then at 10AM we had to be at Karate for certification and Michael had his testing at 1.30 PM. I didn't get out of there until after 4PM. That much for a Saturday off! It seems as though there is something going on every single day, but that comes with the territory of being a Mom, I guess. At least I don't have choir practice tonight, so I can play a little, if they let me.
