If I were cool, I'd have a MacBook. A sleek, thin, white hunk of technology that would make a grown man cry.
But I'm hopelessly un.
So I have a small, beat up, mostly unreliable Dell "compact" laptop. Not a mini, because that would be cool. My laptop weighs more than a jet engine and requires a team of miniature ponies to carry through the airport on a sled.
And yet, here I am, at the airport. With my lead Dell. Say hello.
The motto of the University of Rochester, where I went to college, is Meliora. "Better."
That means you can have a 40 year old hunk of tech, and you can make it better.
So, not being a Decor Elements on the wall type of girl, I took one of the white medallion Decor Elements and I set about turning my brick into a hunk of Stampin' Up! cuteness for convention.
First, I cut the medallion apart, because the center wasn't quite large enough to accommodate that decidedly ungorgeous logo in the center of the lid.
You need to use the little rubbing tool to go over the rubons before you remove the grid side, because this makes sure they are stuck to the backing. Then peel off the grid side, and carefully place them on your un-Mac.
Rub em again with the rubbing tool (or if you lost yours, like me, the Pampered Chef scraper works great) to make sure they are adhered and then peel the backing off slowly from one edge. Mine worked great - no mistakes!
So here is my ameliorated laptop, sitting next to me, waiting for takeoff. What do you think? Convention worthy? It might not be cool, but it's.... better :)
