anniversaries...


I just realised a few days ago that it's been two years since I started scrapbooking. I did my first scrapbook page in September 2006! And I also realised that it was twelve years ago this month that Declan and I went on our first date! How time flies! 
Got a bit stressed out earlier today when Oisin got home from school. Is it normal for a five year old to cry for half an hour because there are no clean track suit bottoms for him to wear? I told him if he cried really really loudly, one might appear. He gave this theory a good try, but surprisingly, still no tracksuit! 
I've been struggling a bit with this months StudioCalico kit. The main kit had a lot of PP I wouldn't normally go for, but I have found when this happened with previous kits that I usually manage to surprise myself and come up with a few LOs I really liked. I have done four LOs with the kit so far and have only done one that I like - which was the shell collectors one below. That one actually looks much better IRL than it does here - the brown paper with the circles is a gorgeous shimmery paper but it is from an add-on. Anyway, I'll try to get a few more LO's done before the next kit arrives.
This LO is one of the ones I wasn't that happy with. I like how the green rik-rak looks with the pins and the staples, but the rest??????

its a beautiful LO Lynn! Its not a nice feeling when you feel you cant get a LO right, but I think you did! I too have those papers and have been struggling with them, and I dont know why because I love circles! Hope you are well! Hugs mandyxx
