Free at Last, Thank God I'm Free at Last

OMG, I thought I was NEVER going to get out of this semester!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! I've been working on school projects the way the Israelites were building pyramids - work till you drop, and dodge that cracking whip if you know what's good for you! BUT the last pieces of my final project are drying downstairs on my kitchen table as I type (and it's due on Friday, so I'm AHEAD of schedule! What a concept!).

Get this - all I have to do is drive to school on Friday and turn my stuff in for my final grade, and then I'm FREE for FOUR ENTIRE MONTHS. I haven't taken a summer off since I started school in January of 2008, but THERE ISN'T ENOUGH MONEY IN THE BERKSHIRES to pay me to go to summer school this year. I am going to sit on my well-upholstered fanny and BLOg, and design freebies, and BLOG, and make snarky collages, and BLOG... you get the picture.
This is my entry for this week's Three Muses challenge. The subject this week is "relationships", so I opened up the folder labeled COUPLES in my library of vintage photographs, and decided to work with a pair of bathing beauties I call "Hard Bodies."

I also made a piece for LAST week's Three Muses, when the subject was "legs":

To check out the great artwork over at Three Muses, go HERE:


"Precious" has 11 papers, glittery stuff, and 42 elements. Here are a few layouts I made with this bright, beautiful kit:

  4. Your "Legs" artpiece for our challenge is superb, Tammara. It is so whimsical, witty, clever and absolutely scrumptious. Can you tell I love it?

  5. I'm baaaaaack. I'm not sure if my first comment went through as it isn't showing. I realised I had only commented on your "Legs" picture and not on the "Hard Bodies" which is hilarious and so beautifully designed. Tammara, you are a legend and a genius at digital art.

  6. Both entries are brilliant, Tammara, love the relationships one!
