Funny Story...

On Monday I had to get my blood tested for my white cell count to see if I could get chemo on Wednesday... all the counts were good and I got my chemo. While I was getting my blood taken, this nurse walks in and is staring at my hair (aka my wig) and I'm getting rather paranoid... I kept thinking she knows it's a wig, she knows... then she blurts out..."I love your highlights!"

OMG, I was floored. Talk about making my day. You have no idea how weird it is to walk around with a wig on. At first it was itchy, and made me cry, now it's not so bad, I'm getting used to it, but I feel like I'm wearing a hat all the time.

Of course, I say, in my typical Chris fashion, thanks, it's a wig. Why I tell people this stuff when she had no idea, I don't know, but I do that stuff all the time. Like someone will say they love my boots and I'll say I got them at TJ Maxx for $25! It's pretty funny. I'm weird like that I guess.

Are you ready for Christmas? I'm not ~ but I did a Christmas type layout. There was a challenge on Serendipity Scrapbooks board to do a layout of your favorite movie, and the one that came to mind was It's a Wonderful Life. We have the dvd, but I always can't wait for it to come on TV. That movie is Christmas to me.

I made this layout pretty graphic looking. Pulled the photos from the net, and printed them on a matte paper.

I pulled some of my favorite quotes from the movie, like "Every time a bell rings, and angel gets his wings."

Here's a close up:

Take care, and don't forget to feel your boobies this month coming up!
Have a great weekend!

HELLO SUPER CUTE LAYOUT! For reals. I love it! And I do the same thing when people compliment something - I blurt out the great deal I got or whatever! LOL! Then I kick myself! HA!

Lydia said...

This is so awesome what a sensational way to document your favorite movie. Love it~

Christie said...

I do the same thing! And my dh is even worse! Love the layout and that is one of my favorite movies too. I have the Hallmark Christmas ornament of it.

Andrea Amu said...

Ohh, I love this movie too and always look forward to watching it. I also think I have a certin fondness for Jimmy Stewert because of his connections to PA! Beautifully finished page design!

I think it's amazing that you got comments on your wig's high-lites! That must be one gorgeous wig you are wearing... good for you!

That is so funny! I'd totally do the same thing. :D My mom LOVES It's a Wonderful Life, LOVES it! Like every time it's on, she watches it. Then, she digs out her copy and watches it. For me it's White Christmas. I gotta watch that multiple times during the holidays. Just love it!

LOve your LO and that movie. The film strip and poster are a perfect addition to your journaling.
I'm so glad you were able to continue with your chemo. And I usually blurt out the price of things. But, aren't we usually excited to tell what a great deal it is or to shock someone. LOL Take care Chris and I felt my tata's today...
