Anyone else as ready for the weekend as I am? (Storytelling Sunday!) It's been good to settle back into our routine here, though we've been a bit perplexed by the number of things which seem to have broken while we've been away. The house alarm engineer was here on Monday; and after he left, I started to make dinner only to discover the hob wouldn't do its thing either. So, Tuesday, the hob engineer came out and told us we needed a new one. When I went to go looking, I found my car battery was flat. Comes in threes, they say, comes in threes.
Scrapbooking wise I had a page up at Get It Scrapped this week. It's based on - coincidentally - "three in a row".. as a design feature, not a list of moans (though there could be another new layout in there combining the two..)
This is such an easy way to get your design started! Head over to Get It Scrapped for ideas on using the power of three - three is good! - and while you are there check out all of the new offerings for the week. It's definitely worth taking a look at Prompts, Sketches and Templates for the Month of August.
My page is a let's-play-with-paper one. There isn't a big story. Or maybe there is. maybe it's a starting point: because the more I think about my lack of green fingers, the more I think about gardening stories from the past (the wet weekend my parents built the green house..). But for now I simply wanted to record that I'm not at all good at making things grow. I love flowers, but I can't help them to flourish. My answer is - sshh - to fake it. What do you think? That spring posy? Real? or just realistic?
Speaking of stories: it's Storytelling Sunday this weekend. I'd love it if you joined us. Your story can be about anything at all: Pick Your Precious or go rogue..we'll read them all. I have a Precious to help me celebrate this month, so I'm suggesting something about togetherness, or something given in love. But anything and everyone is very welcome. See you there.
