Epiphany Crafts has a new tool that is pretty darn cool. It is an epoxy tool that makes one inch bubble epoxies. I love it.
And I love it with this paper from October Afternoon.

We had a great day at the San Diego Zoo. We encountered one of the keepers in the children's area discussing a very rare animal at the zoo. We had never seen this creature before and we were so intrigued. It is a Pangolin from Africa and there are two in captivity here and they are the only ones in captivity in North or South America. They are not on display at the zoo, so you only get to see these mammals by chance when the keeper brings it out for a little sunshine. It is not related to any other animal. It looks a little lie a cross between an anteater and an armadillo. It is completely covered in scales that are made from keratin, just like our fingernails. It was a fascinating little creature and I am so glad
we had the chance to meet it. After putting him away, he walked over to an echidna and placed it right in front of Emma...we both had the chance to "pet" it. Lily decided to have nothing to do with it.
Have a wonderful week!

Oh dear. Poor Fifi. I am sorry to report that I, too, have a black lab (named Olive) who will be 3 this spring. And she STILL eats anything in sight. Her favorites are any plastic toys (Zhu Zhu pets, Littlest Pet Shop toys, Barbies) and any and all stuffed animals. Claire got a Ken doll this past summer and 20 hours after he came to live with us, he was missing his right leg from the knee down, eek!

Your scrapbook pages are so beautiful! Just got Modern Homemaker from October Afternoon in a little 8x8 and I save every mini scrap!
