Panda Love

Doesn't everyone love Pandas?  I know I do.  I just adored this image when it came out.  The artist for this stamp is Morgan Fitzsimons and it's called New Life Panda at the Scrapbook Stamp Society (Click here).  I can recall seeing the new baby pandas when I was visiting the National Zoo in the Washington DC area.
  My husband and I were there for the NBA All Star Weekend that year.  It was just fabulous and also very special as I had just watched them (from NASA at the Redstone Aresenal in Huntsville Alabama, in the building that I worked as an engineer), load up the module of the International Space Station to a special made Semi truck to be taken to Florida for launch.  Then while at DC with my husband, we were at the National Air and Space Museum when all the TVs broadcasted live satelitte images of the docking of that module that I saw a few days earlier a few feet in front of me (and everyday being built) get hooked onto the International Space Station.  Brought me to tears. 

Project Materials:  Cardstock (Bazzill, AC, Neenah);  DigiStamp (Addicted to Stamps-Scrapbook Stamp Society);  Bling (Michaels, Sticko);  DieCuts (Lifestyles);  Adhesives (Popdots, Glue All, Glue Dots);  Color (Copic Markers);
