Stepford Wives

I got this paper from www.scrapshed.co.uk when I went to the Enfield crop back in December. I just never realised MM did such gorgeous paper... I used the last of my light blue thickers (well, ok not the last but butchered some to make the title and the letters I have left will make nothing but a 'zzzzzz' LO... ) It looks better in rl, as I can't seem to get a close up thats not all blurry of the fab-a-rooney brass charms stiched onto the lace trim. The pic was of Em at Crimbo 2005, just before we found out I was preg with Ben...



I've scrapped this pic before. I know. It seems wasted scrapping it again. But the whole piccie says so many things to me... and I wanted to use this paper and the wooden letters, that i'd brought ages ago and just forgot I had. You can't see well but the heart is raised and stiched round in blanket stitching...



This makes me giggle. Emily drew this back in October. I don't know where she got the idea from. All of a sudden she comes up and thrusts this piccie to me. 'it's a whale mummmmmmmy...!' And sure enough it does kinda look like a whale. A whale with legs. I wanted to scrap this to actually have something in an album, rather than a box tucked away somewhere. To say how proud I am that I think she's gonna take after me and like 'making' as she calls it.




http://avocadoishyummythings.typepad.com/thedozens/ I found these kits today. Yum. These are just MY scrapping thing. And I remembered how much I love SiStv. Whenever I go onto that site I remember why I love scrapping and feel all inspired. UKS doesn't do it for me now in that way :( There are some super fabby peeps on UKS but I feel that my sort of scrapping just gets lost there. Ever feel that? That no one gets what really gets me going??? And I know that a few UKS'er think that SiStv is 'Stepford Wives' HA HA, that makes me laugh so much. It just isn't. But if i'm on there often... does that class me as a Stepford Wife??? (ROFL)

I love that whale. Look at all that talent already! I have tons and tons of pictures the boys do, just got to get it in a few layouts. I don't really play a lot over on SIS, but there is some awesome talent and such an array of styles that I love.
