I can't tell you how happy I am that I was actually able to participate in this week's Tuesday Trigger over at Moxie Fab World!
I had such a crazy week - rushing rushing to get ahead at work as I had to take Thursday and Friday as sub days from the school I teach at so I could chaprone a four-day trip with our music department. Our amazing musicians headed to a big music competition this weekend (where they were gold winners, these kids ROCK!). I incidentally checked out the Moxie Fab World web page from my iPad while on the 8-hour bus ride and my heart sank when I saw that this week's inspiration was Orla Kiely!
I wish I could tell you the depth of my love for Orla Kiely (the love affair goes a ways back - see this post here). I'm generally not a "name brand girl" (well, unless it's called washi), but there's something about her wonderful patterns, swanky feel, and bold layouts that speaks to my heart. In fact, my graduation gift to myself was a fabulous Orla computer bag (can you just feel my heart racing????)
Honestly, my heart SANK - I knew we wouldn't get home until Sunday evening and I didn't think I would have time to participate in the challege - I was genuinely crushed!!! (Why couldn't this week be a 2-week Trigger???) Turns out, we had a great ride home (and a supa dupa bus driver), making it back to our hood in record time, and I actually had an hour to throw a quick card together. Ideally, I'd have more time to get it exactly how I'd want it, but this will have to do as I must now sleep for 2 days straight.
edited 4/2 - I noticed the photo I took last night showed the organe as being way brighter than it truly was, so I re-shot this morning (hope that's ok!).
