Vintage Birthday

Well, I have finished my first class (back in school) and am well into my next one.  Goodness knows why I have to do an Art Appreciation class to get my BSN but I guess I do.  I never really paid much attention to old painting in the past, and now I know why.  Not even remotely interesting to me!  Would have thought with all the craft stuff that I do, it would be fun but, truthfully, it is really dry and boring.  Hopefully the literature and film part of it will be better!

Just been waiting for Our Craft Lounge to post a vintage challenge to get to play this card!  LOL
This is as close to vintage as I get.

I officially turned in my first required assignment for school yesterday!  Hooray for me!
To celebrate, I got to play in my craft room for 1 hour today.  This is what I came up with.
Sunset is crummy but otherwise I love it!  LOL.  Wish we would get some sitting on the beach weather.  Really tired of the pouring rain........

See that DP in the background....?  Went all the way to Maui for that.  Maybe if I use it up I will have to go back to get some more!   Sounds like a great idea to me.
