Audio Book

Recently, I really get into listening to audio book. And, I found out I can focus and follow the story while I am making cards. What a perfect combination. I love it when I can do two things that I love at once. :)

Right now, I am listening to Rick Riordan "The Lost Hero". I am sure many of you with kids, know the Percy Jackson series and this is a continuation of it. I love Greek mythology, so even though this book is aimed at teenagers/young adults, I really get into it. It's fun to read Greek mythology being weaved into current year. And, I found myself laughing out loud a few times while listening to it.

Pretty much I go through 1 audio book a week. Sometimes 2, as I listen during my drive and then continue at home while making cards. I simply love books. It takes me to many wonderful places in my mind.

Now, that I have shared what I am loving at the moment, how about a card I made while listening to the book? :) I made this card using one of my favorite image from Some Odd Girl, "Kimono Kaylee". Yeah... I have several favorites. Can't help it.

Simon Says Stamp - Anything Goes
Partytime Tuesdays - Anything Goes

The background paper is from Basic Grey. I think it matched the image well. And, hint.. hint.. Some Odd Girl will have a new series of stamp releasing next week. 

Have a great Thursday everyone!

I almost always read books for that age group! I figure they have to be entertaining to keep the kids interested! Just bought that book and his Red Pyramid at Sam's yesterday!
