The Sweetest Thing

One of the joys of parenthood is sharing whatever bugs and germs the children bring home...usually after you've nursed them back to health! That's where I'm at today...finally child free after a stretch of days-off-school and broken-nights-sleep, and I am up to my neck in tissues and throat lozenges. Blah.

After unsuccessfully trying to attack my rather long to-do list, I decided to sit myself and my tissue box at my craft desk and see where the mood took me. Looking at the scrapbook layout I created, you may see the inspiration the tissues provided? LOL

Lots of white on white....although to be fair, white-on-white seems to be my current favourite where scrapbooking is concerned :) I laid out paper doilies on white cardstock, and carefully stitched them in place with white thread.

 I stitched around the outside of the white cardstock with black thread, to mimic the Amy Tangerine letter stickers in the title. The cute little house and heart stickers came in my Studio Calico kit, and I created little tags to stick them on, then threaded them onto grey twine.

The photo is from our shoot by Sharon Manning Photography last year. Not a single piece of patterned paper was used in the creation of this layout, and not a single polkadot or bright colour either.

I know. I really must be feeling sick.
