Entry for NZ Dare 48




















I thought I blogged this from Flickr so hope I don't end up with a double post. Hmm.
Anyway - the dare requires stamps to be used on your background paper and on an element. I stamped a daisy stamp on the lower left corner and embossed it with clear embossing powder. Then stamped again with a purple colour. Then made some pop up elements with some more stamped daisies. I should have scanned this LO rather than photograph it because the light isn't the greatest (been a cold, wet day) and you can't see the blue behind the dots so easy.

Missy Moo is obsessed with shoes so I wanted to record this. She will try on any shoe around including my ugh boots which come up to her crutch. One of her first words was "shus" for shoes.

She also says "cacka" (cracker), car, "vish" (fish), "kit-teh" (kitty) and of course, NAAAOOOOO! She calls every truck, large car or van "Jarge" (George) after George the steam roller, one of DS's collection. This annoys DS intensely and he will correct her saying, "No Lydia! George has rollers! That one is a truck." Heh heh. I hope she keeps doing it.

  2. Unlike most women I hate buying shoes. It comes from having a size 10 foot at age 13 (they never grew beyond that) and having sales assistants say in disdain "Oh we don't stock them in THAT size". As though you can control your shoe size! Luckily these days size 10 is pretty normal and I can buy what I like. But the early experience just put me off and I don't get any pleasure from shoe shopping! Shame - maybe I need to take a lesson from Missy Moo?

  9. Awake in the night and cannot sleep. Decided to get some inspiration for the week so I began to jump around on blogs to see if my eye can catch some new ways. I´m really happy that I came across your blog and I have stayed much longer then I should at your place. Thanks a million for all the inspiration.

    julian says "cacka" (cracker) for most foods. in fact, he was yelling it at me today while we were at the grocery store because he wanted something to eat.

  15. Beautiful job. I love the colors and especially those flowers.

    When do you find the time? Someday when I get to stay home I can crack open my supplies. *sigh*

    I made a feeble attempt, more like gesture to scrap the other night. I got as far as looking through some pictures I've lined up for projects. lol
