I just can't help myselfie....

Hi guys.
     Happy Friday everyone.  I hope you are all having a great day and are about to head into a great weekend.
     It has been a great Spring Break for all of us here at the Gobea house.  Even though we were only able to head out of town for a short time (family members getting sick while you visit does not a fun trip make for anyone.)  we have made up the difference here at home.  We have been having a lot of fun time together, and we even managed to do some work together as well.   Yep, we did some MAJOR Spring cleaning, and I've got to tell you even the M&Ms are feeling pretty good about all of the improvements and cleaning that we have been able to accomplish.  :O)  I know it sounds weird, but think about how great you feel after you clean your desk and organize all of your supplies that you have been meaning to get to.  Well, that is how we all felt after spending the whole day working on all of our bedrooms. We did them together so that it wouldn't seem like such a daunting task and it would go faster as well.  They all look so great and if it wasn't suppose to be a family week I'd spend the whole day in our bedroom just admiring how much more I love the room.  lol
     Ok, so I know you didn't come over here to hear about our cleaning or our family break either. So let me get to my card for the day.  I grabbed this digi image out of my stack of printed out stamps the other day and started to really take my time and just color her.  I have always loved this image and one of my favorite things to do is enlarge her head and just color her face and hair.  She is so pretty.  Once I finished coloring her up I just loved how she turned out, so I needed to figure out how I was going to use just her head to make a card.  Hmmmmm, can you say Polaroid die? Do I hear the word Selfie?  Yep, I went there.  lol..
     I just loved how she turned out and I just happen to know a gorgeous blond hair girl that just might like to get this card in the mail.  So I hope you all enjoy this as much as I do.  I just can't recommend coloring for just the sake of coloring enough. It really got me back into the mood to be creative.
     Well,  I think I'll give the M&Ms and Jerry the day off and see about all of us taking in a new movie or something.  Hope you all have a wonderful day and I will talk at you later.
Hugs Lisa G

So glad to see you posting again and I plan to do some major cleaning myself over the next few weeks. I LOVE this card! That polaroid was a brilliant idea and her eyes just blow me away, gorgeous!

I need to get some spring cleaning done...does it count that we rearranged my son's closet?!

Love your card and how you used the die for a Selfie...I'm going to have to remember that!

Wowzers! This card is a real eye catcher! It's been a while since I've done a big head card and and you've got me wanting to make one now. :)
Beautiful coloring too, she looks lovely Lisa!
