POD 4: Pretty Sunset


I wasn't quite sure what to title this.

But the one awesome thing about the L.A. smog is that we get really gorgeous sunsets. Some days are better than others and today was one of those really beautiful sunsets.

We were driving to USC to hang out with a bunch of friends (my friend is an RA there and so we watched it at her place) and the sky was just so pretty. So I just kept taking pictures. I had a hard time picking just one....but I really liked this one because of the palm tree silhouettes.

Speaking of USC....THEY LOST. I'm no Longhorn fan, so it was more the cheering of the lesser evil (those blog regulars should know that I'm a UCLA Bruin girl)....but my goodness. I could not believe it happened. WOW. That ending....when USC scored their last touchdown I really didn't think Texas would make the comback....but when they did WOW. Awesome. Vince Young = amazing. And Matt Leinhart and Reggie Bush really didn't have their all today and USC is really nothing without them, soooo. Yep.

To address a comment left on my last entry...here is where I get my scrapping supplies (this is the second time I've answered this today. lol): I shop at about 4 different LSSes. I refuse to shop online. My first LSS was Scrapbook Buddies in Temple City, but the more I immersed myself in scrapping, the more tired of it I grew and the more frustrated I got with their selection. I can say though that I keep going back because I love the owner (she is so nice and knows me, so) and that they've gotten better with their product selection. And if I just go once in awhile, I'll usually find a ton of new stuff there. Another place I go to is Hearts N Crafts in Covina, although seldomly. I remember I freaked the first time I went there because that was when I could not find ANYTHING I wanted at the other place and I just LOVED their KI, Basic Grey and Chatterbox selection. I stop by Scrapbook Safari in Woodland Hills sometimes....not very often because it's a little too far for my taste. But they always have the latest and greatest. It's where I found the Scribbles paper and Lil Davis Stamps on that mailbox LO in the post below. They're also located in a mall so they bump up their prices a bit which I'm not too happy about but their product selection definitely makes up for it. I found a Memories store in Burbank a couple of months ago....and it's where I keep going most often nowadays. They have a pretty good selection and it's not horribly far. Okay so this turned into a novel. Whoops.

Oh and another note - if I owe you photos for a swap, they're coming, I'm just having a horribly hard time picking a picture to send y'all!

Holy Cow! Beautiful picture. I love the palm trees... we don't have any of those here in VA. Sounds like you have a good selection of LSS to shop at. I have 2 fairly close, but about 6 within an hours drive....

Gorgeous picture, Caroline. I adore all your work- too cute, so I'm glad I found your blog! Ok, I shouldn't make myself sound so resourceful. By "found," I mean, I clicked on the link for one of the comments you left. sweet, right?

sounds like you have a lot of stores in your area! a lot of our lss have shut down because of archiver's and such.
