This has been a busy, busy month. I defended my doctoral thesis last Friday and can finally call myself a doctor! Everything went well and we had a nice celebration dinner in the evening. I'm just so relieved that it is over. My Mac actually broke down the day after my dissertation, and it turned out that fixing it would cost me almost as much as buying a new one. So here I am, writing my first blog post on my brand new Mac. I actually didn't think I would be making the May tag this month, but today I finally found the time and inspiration, and here it is. Since I love steampunk, I chose a steampunk color palette.
Papers are from the Bo Bunny Zoology collection. I am not a big fan of zoos, but I am a big fan of wildlife and these papers are brilliant for that as well. I love the muted colors of this collection. I'm dreaming about going on an African Safari and have kind of been saving this collection for that purpose. However, the safari hasn't happened yet, and I couldn't resist to use some of the papers for my trip to the Amazonas rainforest two years ago (yes, I'm a little behind on my scrapbooking...). I love the rainforest! All the sounds, the smells, the greenery, the humid air, the animals - it's magic!
