Sloth- Originally the sin of sadness or despair. The modern meaning - a sin of laziness or indifference, of an unwillingness to act, to care.
This week we want you to scrap pictures of you, your husband, your kids, your dog, whatever! lazing around doing nothing-sleeping, playing Wii, crashed on the couch!
Use 2 handmade embellishments on your LO, one must be made from a non traditional scrapping product
Technique that must be used is Stitching
Monochromatic Layout Color- Light Blue.
You have until 8am Saturday May 16th to load your entries to the gallery in the Sloth layout…don’t waste time, don’t sloth about..get creating!
Here's my inspiration for you ! LOLMy handmade embellishments are the flowers, one of the embellishments had to be made from a non scrapping item. I used two non scrapping items to sandwich a kaiser flower with. Okay not technically correct but it just happened and I thought it looked good! LOL
here's how they originally started...
Where is the room, my family etc!???
here's how it should be done to good effect
( keep your eyes opened I've got plans for this pic!)
So after choice words were said I spent three hours wading through my files looking for the picture to reprint...in a hurry!
NOPE NOT GUNNA HAPPEN!!!
OKay, what was I to do (more choice words! LOL) ...
can you keep a secret?
Sad but true we had to have a reenactment ...it wasn't Saturday but we could pretend... the kids were an easy sell, it was DH I was worried about. But I wasn't giving in on this page. It had to be the way I planned! So trying hard not to look at hubby, I called the kids explained what I wanted them to do.
Still avoiding looking at hubby I called "places everyone". The kids were smiling and laughing... just maybe it wasn't as crazy as it seemed. Just maybe it was going to be okay.. ..and then I did it. Like that Greek chick who got turned to stone! I had to look! There was the look on Dh's face I had dreaded that look that said "are you really serious? This is a tad bit obsessive and you are loosing your marbles darl" and... I was stone!
Grinning sheepishly I said " yep I know!"..." just go with the flow it, wont hurt I promise!" LOL I regathered my faculties and re focused on the job at hand...
this kid sit forward , this kid sit back, that kid stop pickin' your nose! And I took the photo. 8 of them, in fact! just to be sure !
Half an hour later, while victoriously printing the pictures out, I felt a sense of relief. I'd stared down non artistic Mr commonsense & logic and and like a giant band aide of dread I'd ripped it off , & it only stung a little bit!!!
All's well that ends well !I got what I wanted, learnt some valuable lessons and best of all.... now nothing much I do in the future will come as a surprise to DH!!! LOL
As a footnote to this story the picture is completely factual, errr umm in what it conveys...("its the vibe of it" to quote DH's favourite movie, The castle), this is indeed an example of the perfect slothful Saturday that I long for and occasionally get to enjoy. Surrounded by the kids, enjoying the cartoons!
I love it most of all, in winter when the rest of the worlds freezing and the delicious warm afternoon sun comes streaming through the french windows. You cant see them in the picture but right beside me and my favourite plush recliner!!! Unfortunately, sometimes the suns glare leads you to have to make the tough decision to abandon your"research" ( reading the scrappin mags) so that's when you've been left with no other option but to .... have a SLEEP! raotfl!
I've got more to tell you all about, I have to show you all the latest work but it'll have to be tomorrow as I promised myself an early night, the first night in weeks! I thought it was time although I've become so nocturnal! I havent sprouted wings yet but was starting to worry I'm developing radar to guide me round the dark house, in the wee hours and have this overwhelming the urge to sleep upside down. LOL
YEP I"M DEFINATELY TIRED, DELIRIOUS AND RAMBLIN!!! LOL
