Monday Minute #58

Monday Minute

1. Think back as far as you can, what's the first tape, record, etc you remember listening to?

I remember listening to Disney's LP of Peter and the Wolf. I also listened to my parent's record of Nestor Pistor (they thought he was hilarious) and my fave Cheech and Chong record.

2. What's the first concert you've ever been to, the year and who performed?

Yikes, I think it was the Beach Boys, it was along time ago, too long to remember the year!

3. Ever bleed from your ass?

Those of you who answered no are lying!

4. If you went to your Senior Prom and had a date, do you still speak to said person?

We "went around" in junior high and stayed friends through high school. We are now both married to different people and keep in touch at Christmas and on our birthdays. He was my first love :)

5. Name the one television show that's no longer on the air that could have gone on forever.

Geez, so many faves! Family Affair, My Three Sons, Petticoat Junction (I think I'm aging myself here), That Girl, The Flying Nun ...

I love Kraftin' Kimmie's images although I have to admit I feel intimidated using them - I know it sounds weird but when I look through the amazing Kraftin' Kimmie DT show pieces, they look so amazing, the coloring makes the dresses look like velvet. Well, I've swallowed my fright and have come up with this for their "Let's Get Krafty" challenge: http://kraftinkimmiestamps.blogspot.com/

King of the Jungle

Firstly, Happy Mother's Day to all you mom's out there. I had a wonderful day, starting with beautiful treasures from my beautiful boys and coffee in bed!
The weather today is very unpredictable, sun and warm weather one minutes and grey skies with rain the next. This is a good opportunity for me to sneak downstairs and create!
This is Harold from Dude Time Doodles. I really like their images, they make me laugh! I'm entering this card in the following challenges:
