I often wonder what I'm going to do for laughs when my kids grow up enough to stop wanting to talk to me. Paul and I sat after dinner watching Abby dance her way around the room to random 1990's videos - whatever happened to Nenah Cherry? - including her version of the newly popular shuffle dance the kids all seem to be doing these days.
She then posed like a ballerina in full curtsey - well as beautiful as a girl in pyjamas that have dinner all over them can be - and declared that she is glad she lives in the present, because in the past there was no colour. "Everything was sooo black and white, black and white clouds, black and white skiiiin, black and white clothes, everything, everything was black and white"
I questioned where the colours came from. One day the clouds were black and white, and everything around us was black and white and what happened? Apparently coloured clouds came across the sky and then the colours came. that was the first time I asked anyway. I tried to get more information on soemthing I clearly had missed when I studied the earth's history but she shrugged and said "i don-know" and skipped off out of the room.
Seriously, how will I get my kicks once these children have locked themselves in their room and will only grunt to ask for dinner?

Did I tell you all I have a 4 week workshop coming up for Big Picture Scrapbooking? Point of View runs for 4 weeks from the 9th of July. It has 4 weeks worth of handouts, including instructions for projects for each week, a lot of tips and tricks from me (as well as a few audio messages!) and a gallery of layouts from myself as well as talented ladies such as Suz Doyle, Trina McClune, Ginger Williams, and Hera Frei. Hoping to see some of you there :o)
Alrighty... a layout.. this one didn't download out of my head as well as I had hoped, in fact I didn't like the way it turned out at all, the version in my head was way better - I think this is something that happens to everyone though so I can't be too disappointed. Created with the May tarisota kit.
