These two were colored with PanPastels. Even though it is a dry medium, the color can be picked up and applied with a wet brush. As you can see, the result is much like using watercolors. We were almost done when we realized that Ellen went for the bright colors and Alta achieved a softer look. We had so much fun coloring and look forward to incorporating these "beauties" into finished projects. Stay tuned...

We usually end our trip with treating ourselves to an ice cream cone before heading home. There are some benches that are close to the doors and the area where people take care of their returns. This is where we rest our feet while we enjoy our ice cream. We had just finished when all of a sudden Ellen let out a loud scream that got everyone's attention! She quickly looked down to see why the next bench was coming closer to her leg. At the same time, a guy that was returning a VERY HEAVY bed rail thought he was propping it up on the bench next to her. Next thing we heard was the scream from Ellen as it slid off the bench and into her shoulder and arm. Immediately the guy started "sweating bullets". He felt so bad and was very thankful that her injuries weren't worse. Eventually, when the initial pain and shock wore off, we were able to ease the situation with a few laughs. It was a memorable moment for all and we're all thankful that there wasn't any blood or broken bones! When it was all said and done, we had another fun day at IKEA and I can't wait until I can take Alex home with me!

We were using Facebook to keep all of our CrAzY and CrEAtiVE friends inspired and informed...but that hasn't been working.
