My husband is a freakin' genius

Well, being that today is our 6th wedding anniversary, I have to say that, don't I? :-) No, but seriously... he is! I was finishing up my third DT layout for Create My Keepsake using the Inque Boutique stamps. I decided that the palm tree rub-on looked too plain, so I filled it in with clear microbeads and covered it with dimensional adhesive (like I did with the wave stamp). Well, this time, I put too much adhesive on, so since it was taking forever to dry, I decided to break out my heat gun. Um... bad idea. The glue ended up drying hard and white instead of clear, and the palm tree was a mess. So, after having botched it up, I started performing surgery on my poor LO, using my scissors to chip off the dried glue. I got much of it off, but the palm tree looked really pathetic at this point. Enter Tony. He suggested I use alcohol inks on top of the palm tree since the microbeads (the ones that were left anyway) would soak it up. Well, it worked! I filled the entire tree up and then used a black marker to trace back over the rub-on since much of it was covered due to my mishap. Ahh, the benefits of being married to an artist who has a good eye.
So, we had a fun date day today! My parents came over to watch the kids (thanks mom and dad!) and we went to see the new Harold and Kumar movie (very funny!). After the movie, we went to Carrabas for dinner, hitting the bar first for a couple strawberry margaritas (yum!). It's always a treat to get some alone time with my hubby, so i'm glad we got to do that. Hard to believe that it's been 6 years already - my, how much our lives have changed! I'll sign off with a picture we took tonight (not a good one, I might add) and a few wedding pics (and one of us boarding our cruise on our honeymoon). Happy Sunday everyone!
