So You Think You Can Dance? - Gosh, It's been so long since I've blogged so have to catch up on some things I've been doing. When tickets for SYTYCD became available I was able to snare one pit ticket and one in row 6. To get two together would have put us way back in the theatre. So, my daughter in law and I didn't sit together and we exchanged seats at intermission so we both could have the treat of the pit ticket - but we had a great time and the show was great.

I got a lot of pictures....don't know what was wrong with me, I do know how to take pictures, but I was so entranced by the dancing I just couldn't distance myself enough to set the camera for sports mode so I just took pictures in still mode. LOL.

Ivan was one of my favorites during the show. I love his personality!!!

Travis and Heidi.

Benji and Donyelle

Benji and Travis made a great team and did their dance from the show!!

Ivan again!!! He was very entertaining !!!

Not terribly sharp, but I kind of like it !!

Benji was great as an announcer and, of course, as a dancer. Such a goofus sometimes, ya gotta love him.

I like this one of Travis.

It was a very energetic and fun show. The crowd had a good time and it was over much too quickly.

A little slide show of all my pictures.

New Clay Pictures !!!!!

Well, of course I couldn't help it. With these beauties in hand I decided to do a 100% picture scrapbook page. Wish I had the high res pictures, but these will do.

Don't forget to check out Clay's new single, Without You.

Clay's My Space

or, some prefer Fanscape as the audio is even better -

My first Northern Cardinal pictures
I was raised in California where Cardinals do NOT visit and so, when I moved to Arizona, I was excited to discover Cardinals frequent the SE part of the state. Now, I'm kind of in the central part of the state, but I had my fingers crossed.

I saw my first one in a restaurant where they had a bunch of bird feeders outside the window. Then, one day a few months ago I heard a different bird call and went to investigate what it was. I'm not good at identifying which bird call is which, but I knew this was not one of my usual woodpeckers, cactus wrens, etc.

There was a cardinal sitting on my hanging bird feeder. I almost tripped over myself getting the camera and catching a couple of so-so pictures. I only saw him twice and he was gone.

One of the pic's is kind of nice after I PS'd it a little.

Today's scrapbooking challenge was colors again. This is the color pallet.

Hmm. Wanted to do something with a bird pic today but these colors didn't seem to go so I used the blur feature in PS filters to get a random blurred background and went from there. Not sure if it really works, but I kind of like the effect. And, I used all the colors from the challenge. They're there. Honest.
