Well, today is Friday May 25th and if all is going according to plan I am wrapping up my work in Taipei Taiwan and heading to Tokyo Japan by the evening.
But even being 6,750 miles from home won't stop me from playing in Papertrey Ink's monthly Blog Hop.
Of course I made this card before I left and pre-posted this blog entry so it would be here ready to go in time for the hop!
This months challenge was a photo/color inspiration. I love these colors together and I'm not too shy or proud to let you all know that I discovered this color combination - all - on - my - own - a few weeks ago when Lisa Somerville challenged us to use black and white and a splash of color. Yup, my splash of color for that challenge was lime green. And yes, it's super hot now and very, very cool. If Tangerine Tango wasn't the Pantone color of the year, I'd be doing everything in lime green.
And before I finish, let me share my i-phone dump from my last day in Taiepei Taiwan with you.
First, my one purchase from the night market. My 18 year old son Eric asked me to bring him back something with a dragon on it. How cool are these boxer shorts. I hope he likes them.
Okay, so I've told you I'm staying at the very posh 'W' hotel in Taipei center. They have this cool decorating thing where there are these red ceramic animals. Here are some in the gym... There is a rhino in my room. Cute and very stylish...
Last night while we were walking to dinner I captured this photo of the 'Man Purse.' Many of the Taiwan guys have these feminine bags that they wear as a purse.
So this morning, our last work day, we are starting a little later. So I took some time to enjoy the locker room facilities at the W. The W has a spa so these facilities are part of the spa. Very nice.
This is the area where the hot tub, showers, sauna and steam room are. The ceiling erupts in cool mist every few minutes.
Thanks for stopping by my blog today. Come back later this weekend to see my photo's and post about my weekend in Kyoto Japan and a few more Asian themed cards. Have a GREAT memorial day weekend (for those in US) and a great spring/summer weekend for all the rest.
