A layout! OMG!

I had a business call on Tueday night (same night as my dummy saga, I’ll get to that in a minute...) and I said on the phone that I had forgotten how to scrap! Shock horror as I have done only 15 layouts THIS year (plus one mini album.) So I decided to set myself a task of scrapping and use no Stampin Up products or very minimal. I hit the Making Memories stash pretty hard as most of the products are from MM.

Materials list
Cardstock: Bazzill
Patterned Paper: Making Memories
Ink: Stampin Up – Creamy Caramel, Palm Plum, Perfect Plum
Other: Making Memories rub ons & chipboard hearts, Heidi Swapp ghost shapes & photo corners and Stampin’ Up! rub ons

Tuesday night of course Drew didn’t want to settle as I had the business phone call. He must have sensed my anxiety or something. Josh had a sleepover at Nanna’s after the hand surgeon appointment (no more visits required for the moment) and the girls were asleep. Drew managed to lose his dummy somewhere in the house (still hasn’t turned up) and wouldn’t take any other dummy I’d offer him. (I even took Nikki’s dummy off her whilst she was sleeping and tried him with that!) I was at a loss what to do, with Nat at work and my phone call in less than 15 minutes I was frantically searching the house (for the damm dummy!) As soon as Drew got her desired dummy he was off to sleep in a flash (thank goodness) as I was at the end of my rope with him.

Obviously, I have been struggling with coping the last few days (especially yesterday). Many people aren’t noticing (I think) as I do a pretty good job covering it up when I try to but it is a lot easier to let it all out especially when it is just you and your thoughts.

LOVE this page Ros! Great to see everyone in our group scrapbooking at the moment! Fun to play with "long-lost" products from your stash isn't it! This page is VERY cute. Anita. x
