Memories of another time…

Posted on

Going back a decade to when I first became really REALLY serious about scrapbooking, one of the things I just loved were all those rub-on words. Honestly I couldn’t get enough of them: boys, girls, good times, bad times – whatever they were I wanted them and I wanted them all, lol!

Consequently, when I began the downsizing of our house in Australia in preparation of our pending move to Canada, I still had loads of these rub-ons, it was embarrassing. So many of my supplies went into the garage sales but not before I created this card. It seemed to come together of its own accord.

Memories of another time

The large eyelets and the felt-flowers are all retired supplies of Stampin’ Up! – talk about memories. It seems much longer than three years since all those items were integral part of one’s stash!

By the way, the reason there was no Mojo Monday last week, this week, nor will there be one next week is that the family is away on leave. Fortunately I’ve finally achieved some creative time, sparing you all the agony of having to look at my scrapbook pages over and over again!

Oh, and have yourself an... Inkee Fiddling Day!

End of semester already?!

Well… we ended this term the same way we started… SICK!

I couldn’t believe it as I had quite a few things on my list that required ticking off this week as I wanted to be “all clear” for the school holidays, heck I even had  a lunch planned for today, but with the kidlets home since Wednesday not much has happened but the icing on the cake was waking up this morning and feeling as if the entire FLEET of buses had hit me. No No No… I have all my fingers and toes crossed that next term is ours!

Fortunately I had moved the TV into the lounge room yesterday. Yes, I know this is where most people keep their TVs but I have this aversion to a TV being the pivotal part of a lounge room. And yes,  I KNOW most of us spend more time watching TV there then anything else in there but I just don’t like it. However… with everything that was happening yesterday I didn’t want to miss a moment of it so out it came and we all agreed it should stay.

Anyways, it did make for a comfy day today as I set myself up in the corner of the lounge, complete with  my blanket, coffee pot and remote. Of course I couldn’t just sit could I and brought up my box of ribbons to start putting them all on separate cards and hang them in their colour families.

This is my days work… JUST the pink ribbons. Only the red, orange, yellow, green, blue, purple, brown, black, white, cream, silver, gold to go… it’ll take no time will it? I love how they are coming together and all it’s taken are two punches  (the TAG punch and the HORIZONTAL punch) and my CROP-A-DILE. Too easy but effective don’t you think. These  tags have been punched from acetate but next time I’ll simply do card-stock.

I guess at this rate I’ll show you the rest in a few weeks time!!!

Oh, and have yourself an... Inkee Fiddling Day!
