Happiness Is My Soundtrack

Saturday....sigh...I forgot how much I looooove Saturdays...I got up at six and tiptoed into the kitchen, where I fixed coffee with loads of hazelnut creamer and tried very hard not to wake anyone else up. I visited my favorite blogs, caught up with my on-line friends and their latest lovelies, discovered the "Create" feature of Flickr, and spent a blissful hour playing with color and light effects. Sigh... sheer heaven. I got back in bed when Mr. Al woke up, had more coffee, watched the news, and, oh joy! The new elements from Collage Play are posted! Time to get up and get in gear; the day awaits: I will prepare a delicious omelet, spend hours collaging in the Attic with Ava while she writes, work a little on my new watercolor, get a pedicure, and tonight I will go to the movies where I will eat tons of disgustingly buttery, delicious popcorn and probably hold hands with Mr. Al. Can you imagine a more perfect day?



This journal page is what I created for the This Thursday "Colour is my obsession." Step Outside Your Box Saturday challenge "You've Got It So USE It" and Collage Play With Crowabout,as well as the Arty Girlz challenge. I thought I had finished the page, but Ava said "Add some circles!" The photo of the truck and tribal mask is one that I took last fall in Little 5 Points. I altered it with watercolor and by cutting it apart and rearranging the elements.

Ah, here it is! So great!

I love Saturdays, too! I used to get up early even before my son was born. Now on Saturdays my husby is at home with us and he gladly looks after the kid so I can have my time doing pretty much the same you do!
