Happy Friday! Yippa-dee-doo-dah!!!! Scrapbooking in Melbourne, Florida

Friday - super yum!!! I am hosting my first official crop tomorrow! So far 15 gals are confirmed. I can't wait! I'm all ready except for the food. I'll have a little money leftover, so I'm going to spend it on food for the gals. We are finally doing that card class with all those cards I posted in May.
These are some of the cards that I made to give to the facility that hosted my Open House in May. I was inspired by Julee's blog here. She "is" Verve Stamps and hosts the Mojo Monday sketch challenge that I am now forced to do every week. tee hee! My cards "don't hold a candle" to hers, but I'm aspiring ;-) I just love her style and find that it is very close to my own.

I have a funny little story to tell you. You probably do not know that my job that pays the bills is recruiting physicians for a large multispecialty group. I do other things, but that is my main responsibility.
Well. We have a lot of sweet young physicians who are just delightful. It may sound trite, but I try to find doctors who are not only top-notch physicians, but ones with good hearts who will get along with their peers as well as their patients.
Well. We had a candidate interviewing yesterday to join a department of four genuinely nice guys. She would be the first female in that department, but everyone was at ease. Everyone was so at ease at dinner that the spouses started telling little stories on the doctors!
Now that I am writing this, I realize that it will not likely be so funny in the re-telling. But I'm commited now. So picture this tall, slender young physician with a beautiful young family (one boy, one girl). Nice looking young man, quiet and "mild-mannered". A private guy, if you will.

Well. Let's call him Bill, 'cause that's not his name. tee hee. At dinner, Bill's wife was mentioning that Bill was shy and didn't want patients to recognize him when he was out shopping at Home Depot, etc. etc. So he wore a disguise. far would this conservative young man go to disguise himself from his patients? Did he wear a ball cap? Makeup? Padding to look bigger? No! He chose a sure-fire disguise. When he goes out, instead of wearing his half-rim glasses, he wears FULL-rim glasses!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! True story!!!!!
Like I said, you had to be there. Not so funny in the re-telling. But he is one of the brightest people you will meet (triple-board-certified)....naively thinking that adding that lower rim on his glasses would fool everyone!
God love. What a laugh we had!
Have a great weekend!
p.s. Thank you for all of the wonderful comments and e-mails in response to my post about my Dad. So many fond memories. Enjoy your Father's Day!

Your cards a beautiful! LOVE that stamp set!! What an interesting job you have, and your story about the smart, albeit a bit naive, young doctor was funny indeed. Good luck with your crop tomorrow, and have a great weekend!

Your story was funny and I just want to thank you for looking for nice Dr.s! I work at a hospital and it is so nice to be around docs that know what they're doing and actually care about people!!! Your cards are gorgeous and good luck with the crop!!!

Love your cards, wish I could see them close up so I could case them. Funny story. Wow 15 ladies for a crop. I would love to be able to do that.
