Visions of Purple

Today we went to Disney's California Adventure in Anaheim.  There's been a few additions since the last trip there.  One of my favorites was the new (at least to me) Toy Story Mania 3-D carnival ride.  It was awesome!  A car takes you from game to game where you use a control device to play games such as ring toss, shooting plates, darts and the like.  I really enjoyed that, but as in any game my husband kicked my butt by scoring more points.  No matter, the experience was worth it.
My other favorite ride is of course the rollercoastser, California Screamin'.  The weather was so nice, a great day to be outside.


Got a special order for another keepsake box, this time the request was purple.  I painted it in a sort of mixture of dark purple with lighter streaks in it but it just seemed to be missing something.  I had seen a box painted with tons of  dots online and the thought occured to me to use dots in painting a resemblance to lace.  It's funny, when I sit down to create something I have an idea of what I want to do but never really know what direction it will take or what the final outcome will be.  Once I get going, it just sort of creates itself.  Know what I mean?

Oh that ride does sound like fun. Reminds me of the Buzz Lightyear one at Disney World so long ago.

The purple keepsake box is amazingly beautiful. You rock at creating! Happy Friday Follow.

Crafting has always been a passion for me. I have yet to stick with any particular medium, as I love to switch it out and try new things. This blog is sort of a testament to that fact. Hope you enjoy...
