TGIF

Gosh, what a week. I've been getting ready for company this weekend, and it's just been one of those weeks where everything is kind of going wrong--light bulbs burning out, appliances acting up, etc. The carpet is fixed and good now. The carpet people came back and tacked the piece that was a poll mark down really well (so no one was tripping on it-it's thick carpet so it stood up, weird) and now it looks a lot better. It takes about 6-8 weeks for a poll mark on carpet to go away completely and ours is very nearly gone now.

Here are my last offerings for Your Scrapbook Stash.com guest design team spot:
This one is using the Jillibean Soup Old World Cabbage line. This paper is perfect for black and white photos. I might need some more. Although, my love affair lately has been with color photos and not black and white.
This one uses Jillibean Soup Chicken noodle (mostly with some old world cabbage tossed in). The journaling is from a quote Doris Sander used on one of her JBS layouts. I can't tell you what the design of the page was or the colors or even the photo she used, but the words stayed with me for weeks after I saw it and that makes it the best page I've seen all year. I knew I had to leave J something similar. The numbers on these are his age. The photo, well, it's the only one I have of him that he looks kind of pensive. But knowing J, he could have just tasted a bug or something. Really. 99% of my photos are him smiling, so it was hard to find a photo for this. :)
And last a quick one about how lucky I am to have this little guy. Uses Lillybee hello Sunshine paper and rub-ons with Jillibean soup Egg Drop soup paper (again with some old world cabbage and chicken noodle tossed in).
So I'm worried. Not as worried as when I give J a lollipop, because then I know I won't find it for a while and when I do I'll wish I hadn't. No, not that worried. But I am concerned. What does it mean that I keep using string on my layouts? What would a psychiatrist say about that little ink blot litmus test of my personality lately? That I'm all tied up? Tying myself up in knots? Not sure, but I'm concerned none the less. :)

Well, gotta vacuum. I'll be back to return comments and check some blogs this afternoon. You can also check out the AC blog today to see my AC/Pebble offerings if you are just surfing. :) Happy Friday to you (and you new blog followers!) Until tomorrow.
