How did the country let the economy get so out of control? My theory is and has been - GREED! Everyone got too greedy. Everyone wanted to have it all at the expense of others. How could people do this to others and their country?
We are supposed to be the ones that take care of others...that come to the aid of those in need...that help their neighbors during times of crisis. But something went horribly wrong....
So, now who helps us if we can't help ourselves? And, where do we go from here?
I'm truly disappointed in my country and ashamed of our government.

Sketch 3 - This is my nephew Adrian and he has such a cute sincere smile.
Sketch 5 - I had fun with this one. My layouts are usually pretty simple and plain. I loved adding all the embellishments on this one. ( I skipped sketch 4 because it's a two page spread and I still have to choose pictures for it.)
Anyway, forgive the distortions, I'm still trying to figure out the best way to photograph the layouts.
By the way, Heroes was fantastic! It was action packed and intriguing. I used to hate Sylar but now I think he's an awesome character. Such a dark and mysterious villian. They really can't get rid of him. One thing I do think the writers need to research though... last season they showed the twins leaving the Dominican Republic. However, during the premier she mentioned she came from South America. The Dominican Republic is in the Carribean not South America. Will she be eating tacos and enchiladas next?

I know the photos aren't great of the layouts but I'll keep trying to make them better. I can't seem to find a place with good lighting.
Well, I'm off to watch True Blood the new HBO vampire series. I love vampire stories as long as they are not dumb. Thanks to Anne Rice.
On another note, I thought I'd share a little facial tip I use when I can't get to the facialist. If you would like microdermabrasion results at home and your skin is not sensitive, mix together some noxzema (or generic) from the jar with about a tablespoon of baking soda until it forms a paste (consitensy of toothpaste). Rub your face (make sure face is dry) with it in a circular motion for about 30 seconds and rinse off. Tone and moisturize with a gentle moisturizer. Do not use any treatment products right after you do this! Your skin will feel as smooth as a baby's butt! Enjoy!

I'm having fun already and hope to get more creative with my layouts and make some new friends while I'm at it.

I went through somewhat the same thing recently except I was betrayed by people I thought were my friends. I don't know what happened since no one confronted me about anything. What I know for sure is they weren't really my friends to begin with.
This was the first time in a long while that I opened up and let people in with the intention of having real friendships and it backfired on me. I'm not giving up hope though. Somewhere out there, I know there is someone like me who is just looking for a real, fun, and trustworthy friendship.
On another note, I signed up for the Got Sketch 102 class today. I love to scrapbook from sketches and this seemed like a fun course. I can't wait to get my passcode and get started.
