What food do you consider the best "date" food? In other words what meal or food item do you think is sexiest to eat in the company of someone you would like to look sexy around?
a popsicle, on a sultry summer day!
an icicle, on a snowy winter's day!
What well-known person would you like to share a meal with—with or without clothing. (saying whether or not clothes are involved is optional).
Dwight Yoakam, with or without the jeans, boots, or cowboy hat!!! YeeHaw
What does your perfect breakfast-in-bed look like? (Food AND the details, please. Candles? Music? Flowers? Hot tub? Dancing girls?
room service @ the Four Season Hotel *wink*
What do you consider the best application of whipped cream to be?
on a strawberry shortcake, whenever/wherever (preferrably with Dwight, of course)!
Oh-God-No, Biff, the yacht is sinking! You are sent to the galley to retrieve the food. What luxury food items do you snatch first? The champagne? The caviar? Smoked Salmon? Truffles? Chocolate? Or something else?
don't know about food, I'm definitely snagging the edible undies (cuz they would so totally dissolve in the water if we sunk) lol
okiedokie, Amanda - I'm officially tagged! Hmmm, let's see... who to tag back? It's gotta be my BFF & ScrapBud from ADSR3, Chris! (don't hate me for too long gf lol)

here's my nephew, Brian, savoring his favorite Hot Diggity Dog... we'd sing the lil' Oscar Mayar diddy while driving to and from the local Texas Hots store (but we don't live in Texas, and I'm quite sure they never used Oscar Mayar weiners lol)
For this weeks dare I want you to scrap your favorite poem, quote or saying. It could be a joke, something from TV, a religious quote or a poem. Silly or serious there is always that one quote, saying or poem that speaks to you and I want to see it!
1 photo, 1 flower (at least), 1 alpha, and a quote, poem or favorite saying

the last challenge from CG Essentials was an Intersection: I needed to supply a photo and journaling, and my partner, and friend, Chris... had to do all the really hard work and finish off the layout... which IMHO she pulled off magnificently... hip hip hooray!
Chris, in her own words, from the NDIS gallery:
This was really tough - I struggle figuring out what to do with my own photos but I was petrified scrapping someone else's. I'll understand totally if you hate it Vix!
I hunted high and low for elderberry berries and flowers, preserve jars, a blue ribbon and a county fair banner to adorn this page in honour of Vix's winning entry. And Anna's blue gingham seemed the only proper setting.
Blue gingham from Prince of Funk by Anna Benjamin
Scallopea Border by Lie Fhung
Vix's journalling reads: After years of canning all my favorite fruits and vegetables and giving away jars filled with yummy deliciousness, my friends urged me into entering their favorite, Elderberry Flower Syrup, into the county fair, and lo and behold, sitting amongst all of the entries, was my jar of syrup with the prettiest blue ribbon attached to it! It still, to this day makes me smile, and remains one of my best personal achievements!
and with that... another year of Racing comes to an end... but, hey... what a way to go (no one else has a Blue Ribbon lol) thanks NDIS, and most of all... to you, Chris (for putting up with me)

Altered Art Challenge, hmmm not really my style and honestly between internet and psp problems, I just sortakinda lost my mojo for this layout, and didn't add the, "Hanes Her Way" onto it, as I was working on the theme, bare essentials: then and now... oh well, they can't all be masterpieces, eh? lol
