Burn, baby burn!
Man oh man is it hot here in sunny North Carolina! As I sit here in my living room, the ceiling fan is spinning above, and I have another fan going full blast straight at my face. I'm comfortable in this little space, but if I move into other parts of my apartment, it's rather miserable. My poor a/c just can't keep up on a scorcher like this! And as I look at the long string of 90 plus days in the forecast, I can't help but worry whether we're going to make up for the incredibly mild weather we had last summer. Sigh!
Early this morning, in the pre-sweat hours of my day, I decided to 'turn up the heat' in my scrapbooking. In this layout, you can see Duke students and alumni celebrating our latest basketball National Championship. I used Pink Paislee papers from a kit they recently offered online. The flowers are all colored with Glimmer Mist. I tried to capture the school colors and the colors of the flames. Unfortunately, I really struggle with capturing the colors of my layouts without getting sunny glare in the image, so this is close to how it looks in reality, but not quite there. Soon, I'm going to make another layout featuring the people I celebrated that night with, but today, it was all about the flames!
