Shoppabella Sunday!

If you are as old as I am you can remember the days when stores were closed on Sunday's in Ontario! Living in Windsor if we were in the need for some retail therapy we would hike across the 'pond' to Michigan and do some shopping there! Boy how times have changed!

Anyhoo...I had a busy couple days. First off was the Friday excitement with Emily posting those TO DIE FOR Ketto's! And I gotta say I am sooooooooo envious of those peeps who live close enough to the bootique to get your inky fingers on them before I do! HMPH! But as they say, all good things come to those who wait!

After the excitement of Friday I went out for dinner with friends to celebrate my BFF Kim's b'day. well...a few glasses of Merlot and it was after 1am before I hit the pillow! Normally I could handle that, but I had to get up at 5:30am for work! YIKES! I was fortunate enough to be able to work from home so I didn't have to get out of my comfies. Since I had an early start on the day I decided to get some colourin' in and the shopabella's said 'pic me'.

This was one of the first Bella images I ever bought and has sadly never hit ink until yesterday. AND another realization I had when colourin' these little bella's was that I REALLY need new glasses! But I persevered and at an arm's length got them done! AND I LOVE THEM!!!!!!!!!! See that one on the right...that's me! I'm not a frilly girl like the one on the left and god forbid I wear a halter like the one in the center! I also must have been feeling really creative because I got out my .005 marker and gussied up their shopping bags with some funky stripes. I am pretty sure they were shopping for purses because they are all carrying very glittery purses, a sure sign of a love affair! And do you see that hot fix crystal on the bag in the lower right corner...I think I have a purse just like it!

Here is to all of us who live vicariously through a Bella!
