And yet another challenge layout.

You can tell it’s the end of the month when most challenges are due!


This one is for Scrap the Girls … another because Mrs Frizz did it …

This was one was supposed to be mostly turquoise … how could I not do that … I have turquoise … lots of turquoise, in papers, card, fabric, ribbon, lace … you name it and I’ve got it in turquoise … or maybe teal if it comes down to it.

It also needed ‘love’ in the title and to use chipboard.

I almost forgot the chipboard part … I figured the fact that I used chipboard circles as the base for my ‘flower’ thingys probably wasn’t enough. I also decided using chipboard lettering wasn’t really enough so I added the two little chipboard birds too … figured that would cover it!

I ended up doing journalling hidden under the photo for this one cause it turned out kinda long and didn’t really fit any other way.

Love Is …

Asking you to tidy your room.

Making you have a shower once in a while.

Reminding you about tidying your room.

Saying no sometimes.

Insisting that you tidy your room.

Placing rules on how you spend your pocket money.

Not letting you have a friend over because your room isn’t tidy.

Expecting you to come straight home from school and not stop at the dairy.

Asking you to open your curtains and open the window occasionally.

Checking on your cell phone use to make sure it’s being used appropriately.

Turning your light off at 10.30pm and telling you to stop reading already.

Confiscating the power cord for your radio because the music was too loud again.

Celebrating when you get it right and being proud of how you are growing into a beautiful young woman.

Just wanted to record some of those pre-teen issues we are dealing with at the moment …
