The Digit-al Dozen Does Brands--Brand!

Hi Everyone!!! Happy Friday!  I am so excited for it to be Friday because I am FINALLY not working a weekend! Woot!  No more Saturdays or Sundays for me.  Today I am just like most of the res of the world and today is the last day of my work week.

I have to say I had a blast this week on the Brands theme.  But I will let you in on a little secret.  At first when our fearless leader, Debbie of The Crumpet, told me this week's theme was brands I went "Brands?!  Why are we even thinking about cattle?"  Yes people, I went directly to steer branding!  It wasn't until chatting with the rest of the gang that my mind wandered to store brands, company brands, and even nail polish brands.

But I got to thinking about it and read up on brands and name brands and OF COURSE the whole idea and theory behind a name brand is because of cattle branding!  Back in the day when fences could get broken, or deliberately torn down the only way for ranchers to identify which wandering--or stolen--cattle were theirs was by the brand they had given it.  When the world started to grow and people bought items such as food, tools, clothing and vehicles. individuals or companies started "branding" their products with their name so they would get repeat customers.

So in the end I was right!!! Woot!

So today I give you my "brand"  
My brand, the double L with love is just my initials. I like to think back in the day had we been on a ranch this would have been brand my dad came up with for our family LOL!  Hey it could have happened, all of us girls had LL for our initials!

I got my look doing a saran wrap mani on middle and ring using Zoya Farah and Loreal Brownie Points.  My index and pinkie are the lovely Elevation Aiguilles d'Arves.

Let's make sure to check and see what everyone else came up with on our last day!
