I'm home!

I am home!  Gosh, I missed you guys something terrible! Yet, I got to spend time with my parents and that was great!  My hubby and I helped them move from Nevada to Arizona, what a trip! It was very hard on my parents for they weren't sure where to put everything once we got there. DH went home in five days and I stayed 2 weeks to help unpack. Would you rather pack or unpack?  Me, I rather pack any day of the week over unpacking.  When you unpack everything has a new home and your just not sure where that might be. I'll tell ya though..I will never fly with US Airways again if I can help it. I wanted to stay an additional week to finish helping my parents and they wanted $490.00 to reschedule my flight. I thought maybe somebody didn't read the figures right and went to the airport....same thing. I asked what happened to the 50 -100.00 fee for rescheduling and the answer I got was "no it's now 150.00" I stood there and thought something is wrong with this picture so I asked "then why are you telling me it is 490.00 and the answer I got was "oh, that is before the fee is added"  Let me tell ya, if they go out of business it won't be anyone's fault but their own. I was not buying a new ticket and was flying ONE way in the USA...I wasn't going to Timbuktu...gesssssssssssh.

Anyhoo, my card today was designed by Daphne and I was on her DT in the very beginning. Very sad for she no longer does any digi's.  This was one of my favorites and I added the sentiment in Photo Shop Elements.
  
Challenge:

 Copics:
  • Skin: E11, E00, E000
  • Blue :  B04, B02, B00 B000
  • Pink:  RV02, RV00, RV000
  • Hair: E35, E31, YR20
TIP OF THE DAY: Shadowing your image.  Adding a shadow to your image makes it look complete. In the beginning I hated to add a shadow by taking my marker and just out lining it. I felt it was so dang obvious and didn't like it. Then I learned to take my colorless blender and go back over the outline shadow to give it a soft blend.

I am SO Happy you are back! I am sad however that US Air tried to charge you a small fortune to change a flight.

I flew Southwest on my last trip and we changed to an earlier flight on our return trip and only paid $50 and NO baggage fees, so overall I was very pleased with them, but I know too many other airlines really are awful and don't care a bit WHY you have to change!!

Shame on them! It's a seat on a plane....not some luxury!!
