Mine is only to create.
This is what I tell myself when I find i have inadvertently printed off the goofy "junk" pictures the teenager has taken with the webcam.
Do i really need 10+ pictures of Pooh staring into the camera as she blows the world's biggest bubble. Need this be documented? No.......BUT - they were already printed off. AND they are just going to take up space in my printed picture files. Why not do a swanky-artsy character study of my oldest spawn? I'm sure she'll look back on it and laugh....like maybe 15 years from now......in the meantime, I'll pull out this layout everytime she has company......BWAHAHAHAHA!
Please confer with brain before proceeding in such a wonky fashion. Thanks so much.
After sleeping on it for the night, I grabbed a cup of coffee and sat down with a renewed perspective the next morning. I really liked the misting that I had done using the drywall tape as a mask, and I didn't want to start over. Nancy Drew to the rescue!
I grabbed my old Nancy Drew book that I use from time to time and ripped out and misted a few sheets. (Why Nancy? You ask?.....well, I'm a little OCD. And I would seriously loose sleep if I used some other book that may not have kid friendly content. And since I'm not really up to pre-reading a book that I only want to tear up anyway, Nancy seems safe to me.) Now it seemed it was all coming together......Add a ginormous paper clip and some Fancy Pants coffee filters as a journaling block (although I still need to do the journaling. I mean, what do I even say about this? haha); and WOOT WOOT, I was finished!
