Here's my take on the sketch. Titled: Being You. I've used lots of new and old Prima goodies, including a new stamp (mesh/wire) that I just LOVE!!! I'm sure you will be seeing that stamped image on plenty more layouts in the near future. (-: Did I mention that this layout came together very quickly and easily? No struggles with this one.
Yes, sometimes I still struggle - like the one I am working on at the moment. Sigh!!! It's been sitting on my desk for a couple of days and it's just not moving. Now, what's that saying? Yes, that's it - chocolate fixes everything!!! Can someone please pass the chocolate!!! (-:

Malayla's still quite wary of the skates, but she is slowly getting the hang of it. She did fall over once yesterday, but there was no blood (thank goodness!!!).

And thanks to that sketch, I finally have a layout that I can share with you. I have 4-6 other layouts completed, but I am not allowed to show them to you yet. This is my interpretation of the sketch, and it is titled: Be Happy. Now, this layout looks nothing like what I had pictured in my head. Not even close. Even the colours are totally different (I originally had planned on pale blue, green and raspberry). Instead I end up with raspberry, white, and a dash of black. Go figure!!! But I can honestly say, I am really happy with the end result. (-:

Yesterday, DH decided to wear a funny shirt to pick up the girls from school. It says "JUNK MALE" on the front, and is bright red. So you can't exactly miss it. I warned him it wasn't a good idea to wear that shirt to the school where all the other mothers would see it. But he wouldn't listen, and oh, didn't he pay the price (ha! ha! ha!). One comment by a passing mother included, "I've dated one of those!!!". And several wry smiles and snickers later, and he's ringing me to say that they are laughing at him. Didn't I warn him? My response - "suck it up!!!"
Then this morning, DH decided to clean out some of his drawers. Now this was an opportunity I couldn't miss. Free entertainment for me (snicker!) You see, my husband keeps EVERYTHING in his drawers, and they are a mess (think teenager!). There is no order. It is pure chaos (which drives me crazy). My solution - I no longer fold any of his clothes - I simply open them up and shove the clothes in where ever I can find room. I then close the drawer and try not to think about it. But I digress - he was cleaning out his drawers, so I sat on the bed to watch. (-: He found the following - packets of cookies, muesli bars, glitter on all his socks (from the girls art work), shampoo, conditioner, and something that he didn't know what it was (grey electronic thing with a cord). The conversation went like this:
Me: "Honey, what is this?"
DH: "I don't know."
Me: "What do you mean you don't know? What does it do?"
DH: "I don't know".
Me: "So why do you have it in your drawer?"
DH: "I don't know, but I am keeping it anyway".
Yep, you see - free entertainment for me!!! (-: Worth every minute of the torture that I put him through (hee! hee! hee!). Enough sharing - I'm off to do some scrapping. Have a great weekend!!! (-:
