I can't write the numbers to this tag because my best friend in second grade told me it was the devil's favorite number.

I've been tagged by Charrette to show the world the 6th picture in my 6th folder - but since I'm a compulsive organizer, it turned out to be the 6th picture in the 6th folder of the 6th folder of the 6th folder. Ahem.

So during one of my extremely ambitious moments (they are few and far between), I decided to start a Brazilian Scrapbook. There are so many things I want to remember - not just the people, but the culture. The art. The food. The landscape. The architecture. The streets. My Man and I made a list of all the things that make Brazil Brazil and got to work. This way, when our children inevitably ask us about that crazy country on their birth certificate, we can just hand them the book.

I've only done about 10 pages (out of over 70 - so far!), but this picture was taken for the nature spread.

Brazil's predominate color is GREEN. It's everywhere - year round. And they have the most beautiful, funkiest plants imaginable - as you can see.

Alright, ladies, I showed you mine, you show me yours. I tag:

Wonder Woman - Because she inspires me and makes me giggle - often at the same time.

Stephanie - Because I adore her to life (because adoring someone to death is rather frightening), and the 6th picture in her 6th folder is most likely my nephew and I want to see his little face.

Katrina - Because she's an amazing photographer and I wanna see what she's got.

It looks so beautiful down there! I wish I could have green all year round, but there is mostly white, a little green and a lot of brown. Kind of boring.

Fun tag! Check out my blog to see what I posted. :)

Um, you won't believe this, but I was tagged with this last week and JUST posted it. Like, 2 seconds before I read this. Crazy. CRAZY.

I like being your blog friend!!

Do you think that lovely plant would transplant to my yard? No? Shucks.

I so wish it were hot here. Love the pic.

Hey, I did the evil numbered picture, too! (may we not be struck by lightening)

I love learning about Brazil.

I couldn't resist...curiousity got the best of me and I had to do the challenge as well...you will never guess what I found.

Great photo. It is fun to think of you in a green, warm land.

Cool photo! I love that you're doing a book on Brazil for your kids. My son went to Brazil with his choir and it forever changed him. He's dying to go back.

And your title? Is awesome!
