LIFE BOOK 2015: Danielle Donaldson Lesson


This week's lesson was one I adore. As I adore Danielle Donaldson to pieces.  
The image was adhered to my SMASH album I use for various drawing and adventures with Tony. 
I thought the background was too loud for the girl so I applied a thin coat of gesso and love it so much more. 
And then Danielle issued a challenge on her blog for a giveaway, and this is what I created for it #creativeGIRLgoodness. 




And now time to dive into her new book "CREATIVEgirl"

PORTRAIT CLASS W/ KATE THOMPSON: Practicing

I found this image in a SMASH album and decided to apply the lessons I've learned and recreate it.

WHAT A DAY: June 12, 2015

Off to a fun day together with Tony and his niece, Paris
at Greensboro Science Center in Greensboro, NC.
Up first, the SciQuarium.



Otters having fun and a dome was created to get a close up encounter.




My favorite new site was the spotted stingray....very pretty and different.

Paris made every attempt, but just couldn't come to touching them.  I got a quick feel and that was enough for me.
Eww...slimy.




We ended up eating lunch near this beauty...my birthstone.
Paris took a chance and felt the "Arctic Blast"
 
All about dinosaurs and bones....Paris was wanting to bone hunt, but that wasn't an option.
 (We saw "Jurassic World" last night.)
Then off to a quick walk through of the zoo and petting farm area.






After dropping Paris off, we munched on some yummy Outback Steakhouse.

TONY AT TONY'S

After going on a new venture to Steele Creek Church, Tony and I ate lunch at Tijuana Flats and then stopped by Tony's Ice Cream for yummy grape and butter pecan cones. 

Mine tasted like a grape lollipop. It was delicious homemade ice cream. 
And on Monday before he left, another sweet note was left on my bed. Such a sweetheart. And he totally gets my Project Life and scrapbooking needs by dating the paper :)
