A funny week

a funny week
london ambassador pod
Hello hello! How can it be Wednesday already? Well… it’s because it is indeed a funny little week in my world. Throughout this week, I’m wearing a bright pink and purple uniform and standing next to a pink and purple kiosk to help the fine pedestrians of London with any questions or concerns they may have. (Sorry, I don’t have any tickets for sale. But I can provide a free map, if that’s any consolation.)

I have several hundred more CHA photos to share with you, but I just need a bit more time… and I know it won’t be today since I have my day of bright pink combined with the super excitement of heading over to watch the dress rehearsal of the opening ceremony tonight. It’s so exciting that I’m afraid you’ll just have to pardon me for collapsing into a heap by the time I get home tonight and not blogging. (But you better believe there will be new photos to scrapbook from tonight!) But I really will get them all shared here, and I thank you for your patience. (I know there are some other posts I need to get live here. Please know they will be available as soon as they are ready! That includes some videos and the new class I’m working on and all that sort of goodness. Thanks!)

As it’s Wednesday, Glitter Girl will have a new adventure today. When it goes live, you’ll be able to find episode thirty here.

Have a fabulous day!

    can’t wait to see what your new class will be!!!
    Also, did you ever share your last video with the 4th add on from SC kit?? i can’t find it!

  16. kirsty A Says:

    Sounds like an exciting week. Look forward to seeing the photos. Just watched Glitter Girl Scenic Solutions. Great layouts. Don’t you gut your papers? I’d have gutted that pale blue background so I could use the cameos on the back for something else, rather than buying another full sheet. But I guess Superheroes don’t need to worry about that sort of thing!

  17. Sabrina H Says:

    Have a great time!!! Sounds like a blast!!!!

  18. Gela Says:

    What an AWSOME adventure! Have fun.

    Hey Shimelle! Loved the new Glitter Girl Adventure. As always very very pretty and omg, I wish I had half your creativity and talent! But I was just wondering, wasn’t there another Scrapbooking with Studio Calico video/ project left? I thought it was five of them! Anyways, I was just wondering cause I was loving those videos so much!! Thanks for your great work!! For me, you are the best “scrapbooker”! =)

  28. Katie Scott Says:

    I’m watching the Olypmic Opening Ceremony & can’t help thinking, I wonder what Shimelle is up to over there. I lived in London for 6 months when I was in college and so love that city and miss it. I was at 32 Gower Street near the British Museum and could walk down the street to Trafalgar Square.

    Just wanted to post to say that I love to listen to you on Paperclipping Roundtable and I love your scrapbook videos too.

    I ESPECIALLY LOVE the video you made last summer about, I can’t remember what you called it, but it was about scrapbooking everyday – I saw it a week or so ago, it was awesome!

    Ok that’s all – Have fun with the Olympics in town.

    The MINI Clubman is an exceptional phenomenon in the premium compact segment. Its modern interpretation of the classic shooting-brake concept offers unprecedented space and flexibility.

    Toyota announced that the Scion brand would be phased out in August after the 2016 model year, arguing that the company no longer required a specific marque to target younger demographics.
