I finally played in one of the Embellish Magazine challenges; this one was yellow, black, gray, and white plus background stamping. The inspiration pictures made me want to go in a funky/modern direction, and this is what resulted:
Emily's idea of making a wire body/attenae for it. I even had some black rhinestones I've been meaning to use that were perfect. I corner chomped two opposite corners to add a modern look. Fun times!
In other news, remember how I was all enamored with Gap's jeans? "Oh, they don't gape in the back and fit perfectly..." I take that back. They don't gape in the back for the first hour. By lunch, I am constantly pulling them up because they stretch so much. By the end of the day, it looks like they are at least two sizes too big. It's worse with the lighter wash, and not too bad with the darker wash. So I'm still on the hunt for the perfect jean, and found a new contender yesterday at Talbot's of all places. I know what you're thinking, but really, they're not old lady jeans or even mom jeans. They're even a funky distressed gray! I know many of you were wondering how my jean situation has been, so I hope you can sleep a little easier tonight.
In other other news, we went to see The Social Network yesterday. I would rate it a B+. I guess I was expecting A Few Good Men since it was written by Aaron Sorkin, but it wasn't that awesome.
Hope everyone is having a great Sunday! Cross your fingers--I may get another post up later today!
