03/05/14 - CPC: Pipe Cleaners

 
 
Another day, another inspiration...
 
The inspiration this time around? 
Pipe cleaners:
 

 
 
 
I didn't have any pipe cleaner creation pictures...
and I didn't want to stage a picture just for the purposes of this challenge.  So I went with the rainbow color scheme of the first inspiration picture. I also was inspired by the googly eyes in the second inspiration picture so I included a sticker of a googly-eyed pumpkin and his not-so-googly-eyed friends as an embellishment.
Here is the layout:
 
 
 "Pumpkin Patch Thugs"
Journaling: "David and Madison hate taking pictures so I am thankful for any pictures I can get...
even these!"
 
David and Madison are such clowns! Madi gets it from her Daddy...
Well, actually I'm a clown too so she gets it from both of us, but he is more so a clown than I am.
Basically what I'm saying is she had no chance! LOL!

Anyway when it comes to pictues I can hardly ever get them to agree to take one.
And when I do, it's hardly ever a serious one.
It's frustrating!
But what can I do...ummm nothing, except take what I can get.

I was able to convince David to take more pictures w/ me this year as a kinda joint "New Years Resolution" and so far so good.  I have at least 1 picture of us together for each month of the year...so far...well, it's only been 2 months...but still that's a start.
I'm hoping we can keep it up.

Anyway, I digress...
Back to the original subject which is the current challenge over at "CPC".
Please stop by and check out the other fabulous layouts and join us...
Pretty please?!

03/04/14 - SID March Single Page Layout Team 1

Hello!
Stopping by to share the latest "Stick It Down" sketch for my team: Single Page Layout - Team 1.
Warning my layout subject matter is total "TMI" (Too Much Information)! LOL!
 
First the sketch:
 


And my layout:
 

"IBS"
Journaling: "I have stomach issues.
I've had them since I can remember but having children made it worse...and each child made it worse than
the one before (thank goodness I only had 2)!
I was actually diagnosed w/ IBS = Irritable Bowel Syndrome
This diagnosis came a few short years ago and thanks to it, I know what I need to do to manage it.
But there are some days that no matter what I do it causes me great pain.
On those days the only comfort I get is lying down w/ my feet elevated.
Sometimes this happens at work.
I am thankful I have an office w/ a door and a lock
And my Snoopy blanket.

Yup, like I said,  TMI.
But my IBS is a part of me; a part of my life.
And scrapping about life isn't just about the good and the pretty.
So there you have it: another piece of my story.
 
BTW - if you can't figure it out, that's a selfie I took of me lying on my office floor.
 
Thanks for stopping by and please stop by the SID blog to see other takes on the sketch!
