How lucky am I?? I had coffee and lazed around in my jammies this morning and watched "The lovely bones", a movie I had been meaning to watch. It was good but sad! Then I played around in my art room and was able to play along with 5 challenge blogs!! The first two I played with was the
Take a word blog and the Fun with ATC's where the theme for both was "black and white" so I made this using my Slice die cut machine for the skull shape and some of the Tattered Angels tissue paper:
Then I used one of my favorite stamps to make this ATC for the Crazy Amigos where the theme was "remember":
Then I used a stamp and stamped onto an ATC that I had used alcohol inks on for the background and made this for the Shopping our stash challenge where the theme was "fall colors or halloween":
and last but not least I played along with the Three Muses where the theme was "wings" and I had this gorgeous image that I just love:
That's it for now, until the new challenges all start up again tomorrow!
Right now I'm reading "The hunger games" on my Sony Reader:
and here is the description as per Amazon.ca:
In the ruins of a place once known as North America lies the nation of Panem, a shining Capitol surrounded by twelve outlying districts. The Capitol is harsh and cruel and keeps the other districts in line by forcing them to participate in the annual Hunger Games, a fight-to-the-death on live TV.
One boy and one girl between the ages of twelve and sixteen are selected by lottery to play. The winner brings riches and favor tohis or her district. But that is nothing compared to what the Capitol wins: one more year of fearful compliance with its rule. Sixteen-year-old Katniss Everdeen, who lives alone with her mother and younger sister, regards it as a death sentence when she is forced to represent her impoverished district in the Games.
But Katniss has been close to dead before — and survival, for her, is second nature. Without really meaning to, she becomes a contender. But if she is to win, she will have to start making choices that weigh survival against humanity and life against love.
Acclaimed writer Suzanne Collins, author of the New York Times bestselling Underland Chronicles, delivers equal parts suspense and philosophy, adventure and romance, in this stunning novel set in a future with unsettling parallels to our present.
It's supposed to be coming out as a movie and I really wanted to read the book before it did. So far it's amazing!!!!! How about you, have you read it? Want to read it?
