Interviews from the Twilight Zone and an rak for luck

It is either a really bad market out there or I am finding all of the crazies. I followed up an ad in the paper for a clerical position went in for an interview and ended being practically sexually harassed by a married man who thought I wouldn't notice him moving his wedding ring to a different finger??? what the &$#@??? Then proceeded to inform me that he was interviewing me for a Lab tech job and asking me questions like have I ever worked with animals and am I squeamish?? ok did we not just go over my resume and talk about all clerical positions or was he just listening to my boobs. I guess the real question is why the heck did I not just get up and walk out. I am not that desperate for money (maybe I am since I stayed) no no not that desperate! That pretty much shot my luck for this day hopefully tomorrow's interview will go much better please start the prayer chain because I truly feel like I am needing it right about now.
On to happier things. Can't wait to get my Label Tulip kit for August!!! I am so excited about that! I have been playing with a few layouts but still not happy with all of them but starting to feel the creative flow come back. Here they are...

I just feel that they are a little plain. I own so many goodies but for some reason couldn't think of anything else to put on these pages. Speaking of little goodies I would like to do a small rak. I ordered these little tags off of etsy and they are so adorable and they give you so many in a bag I want to give some away, and maybe some other flat items that will fit in an envelope. So the first 5 people to comment on this post will get the goods. Your odds should be pretty good! This is a picture of the little tag, isn't it adorable?

Here it is used on a layout.

Hope you are having a better week then me. I am sure mine is going to get better because tonight at midnight Topaz will be headed for PA!

To shed some light on the subject...

Had some awesome Thrift Store finds yesterday. This vintage goose neck lamp in this awesome marbled green color. I could not leave it. It has a little rust and its original wiring which looks to be good still. I have been wanting a lamp for my scrap table and this one wanted to be the one. I also got this acrylic recipe box, which even flips up and holds a recipe card. I thought this would be perfect for holding Ali EdwardsDaily something project or for an altered deck of cards. And then the card board suitcase I have been wanting to purchase one to house our Honeymoon album and the other items I brought back to keep so with I little paint and paper I think this baby will be perfect. Plus I got all of this stuff for $6.00 can't beat that.
I really haven't been in a creative mood lately. Not sure why just focusing on finding a job right now I guess. I hope that changes soon because I do miss creating. I think its time for an inspirational trip to the beach!

Love, Elsie layout

This is a little edgier then I normal do but I still like how it turned out. All in the name of free product. Still no word on the job front. Hopefully will be hearing from him by the end of this week. Just received Label Tulip's new kit haven't been able to play with it though. Can't seem to find pictures that go with this paper. But am lovin' the grid stamp.
