Just because...

There's an old saying that goes something like when you're on a good thing, stick with it. I have to ask myself sometimes when this little polkadot obsession of mine is going to end, but as the saying goes, I'll just stick with it for now :) After all, it has made me pull out my scrapping stuff again, so it's all good, right? LOL

A funny thing I've noticed...when I'm not scrapbooking, I don't take the time to think about the little things that make up my life, the little things that make me happy....things like fresh roses on my kitchen table. Each week I buy some just for me, just because they make me happy. My favourites are white, followed closely by yellow.

This week I bought red, just because they were so stunning. My cheeky husband was away at the time, and asked me if I had attacked them with white correction fluid, to make them polkadotty LOL...he knows me so well :)

I've mixed up the patterned paper a bit here...some Echo Park, October Afternoon and a little Prima. I inked the doily with my Sepia inkpad, before attaching the alphas and adding some Kindyglitz sparkle to match the Prima chipboard.

It's so windy and rainy here in Perth today...I'm off to snuggle under a blanket and do a bit of stitching :)

I love what you do with your polka dots...scrapbooking to quilting, it all looks great. Fabulous layout, love the doily! Just had an idea...you could photo shop some dots on your flowers????? There is nothing nicer than fresh flowers.....I love how the perfume fills the air, that makes me happy!
Enjoy your week!

I love your polka dot obsession! Polka dots make me happy. Roses make me happy also-- I buy them too. I have a mix of white and soft pink right now... I have yet to find polka dot roses, but if I do you will be the first to know!
Hugs,
Jill

This is lovely; I wondered when I’d see the polka dot.
