With Mum-In-Laws arrival imminent, I know my scrapping time is going to be almost non existent over the next week, so I’m squeezing in as much as I can & out of necessity have combined a couple of challenges in to this next one!!
Firstly the current challenge at ‘These Are A Few Of My Favourite Things’ is ‘My Favourite Quote’…
… & then another Sketch challenge at ‘Dixie Pieces’…this time from Leah.
She chose a sketch from her favourite source, Creative Scrappers.
So with both of these challenges in mind I put my LO together…
The quote…”Stop Living Life For What’s Around The Corner & Start Enjoying The Walk Down The Street” Grant L Miller…is one I discovered recently on the home page at Soul Scrappers & it really struck a chord! So much so I now have it set in my blog sidebar as a daily reminder! I am so guilty of putting things off ‘until I lose weight’…it may sound a small & silly thing but life doesn’t stand still & in spite of all my good intentions & determination, my track record on the weight loss front means I stand to miss out on a lot! No more!!!
The photo’s I’ve used are two of my favourites taken in Chicago last year…Karen & I walking through the rain in a lovely neighbourhood street, taken by Hilary & my impromptu attempt at pole dancing in a branch of Paper Source, later that same morning, taken by Karen.
I bought these Prima PP’s in 2008! Intended for a Christmas LO that never materialised, so it was nice to put them to use! I managed to follow the sketch quite accurately, but did get a bit carried away with the flowers!!!
Right, I’m off to blitz bathrooms & yes Karen, the bed is now clear, freshly made up & there’s not one iota of evidence as to how I spend my days in total relaxation….yeah right!! I wish!!! LOL!!
Thanks for stopping by & Happy Wednesday!! : )
