So much on my mind.
I have these. Wait. let me upload this pic.
That contains every single LO I had in my book. Those boxes look far too small for the amount of work that went in there. Anyway. There they are, all the layouts have returned home. Seeing them again will be like seeing them for the first time all over again, I sent them all away so quickly after completion.
SO one would think that perhaps I'd rip in and check them out? No. No I didn't. Those two boxes and now stored nice and safely in the cupboard. Some weird superstitious vibe I'm having won't let me open them. And so they stay sealed, for now.
And remember how much I loved templates at one time? back in the day people always came to me to see if I bought my stack of templates to a crop. (hi Donna!) .. well it seems that things move in circles - almost literally so, check out that doty round template in this pic. I've been playing with some Crafter's Workshop templates lately. Lucky Lucky girl. Love the doodling ones. And the dotty circles, as I said. Kiwiscraps has these in stock I believe. A doodling template. one of those I-wish-I-had-thought-of-that moments.
Another pic - love this one. Katja's hubby came to visit us one Saturday, and he took this pic of Paul, Abby and I. Just a random pic. We were just sitting around the kitchen bench and he decided Abby was far too cute and he took some pics. Fine scrapbooker's hubby :o)
i think I love it because
a) Paul and I are rarely in a pic together, and b) if we are in a pic it is usually without the kids and posed with an uncluttered background etc. I love that I'm jsut standing there in my kitchen in my old t-shirt and there is a birthday cake on the bench and a party hat there too, although it wasn;t for party purposes, it was because Abby thought it was a cool beak. And the 'house plant' in the background. The plant has followed us everywhere we go... everytime we move I snip it off at the base because it is easier than letting it get tangled, when it reaches the floor again it is time to move. It has been at the floor for a few years now, no wonder I'm getting itchy feet...
