Hair all over

from me pulling it out from working on a Graduation card for my daughter, Chelsea. I can not even begin to tell you how much paper has been wasted attempting to make this card. I have murmured over and over, it's only paper, it's only paper! lol! My chair kept leaning back in my craft room looking at my box that holds all my Halloween stamps. Every color combo with orange and black looks to me like it should have a ghoul on it. I've just got to walk away from it for a little while. Perhaps in the morning things will start looking up.
Chelsea is at her College orientation and is staying overnight so I had a little time to work on her card today without her peering over my shoulder. She is the real artist in the family. She received a scholarship from the Arts Council in White Plains for her artistic ability. I can't bounce off ideas on her for this one. I'm on my own. Tomorrow is another day...hopefully it'll be productive.
I just had to get out my frustration. thanks for listening. It's always that ones that are most important to you that give you the most trouble. (i'm talking about the card making and not my daughter! lol)
Here's a picture of Chels at the gallery with one of her pieces.

WOW; Chelsea rocks as an artist; I've got to show this to my oldest daughter. She had a piece in a local museum; not near as incredible BUT hey for an 11 yr. old - we'll take it!

Way to go Chelsea!!!
