I wish life was more like 1984


Reminiscing about simple and uncomplicated times. The times when drooling was allowed and there were no worries about water damaged walls. When life was full of smiles and some one else cleaned up the poop ;) I love John Mayer and his song 1983 always makes me think of carefree diaper days and my childhood. I guess one of my photo corners fell off in the picture taking process. gonna have too hunt for it. Ill be lucky if the dog didnt eat it :( I bought 2 new rugs for my kitchen Monday. Tues i found one outside covered with grass so i brought it in to wash it and apparently when we hooked the washing machine back up something went wrong. So the rug kinda disintegrated. Wed I get up happy day, let the dog out, go to shut the door when he came in(he can open the door himself sadly cant shut it) and i find rug number 2 in the yard with a hole in it. Thank god they were cheap ones but still geez. bad bad bad dog!!!
Tip of the day: Haul out those fabric scraps and wallpaper remnants for your next layout. They add texture and zing to any page!! The green paper i used on this is vintage wall paper.I got it here and i totally love it!! The bottom piece of the flower is diecut fabric. I didnt make this one but when i do i usually either cut the fabric by hand or run it through my cuttlebug with a sizzix die(flowers or circles or whatever you feel like). I think their dies cut fabric perfectly. I need to try cutting fabric with my Nestabillities. Not sure how it will work.....stay tuned!!!
