I’m going to count to 3

and every parent or teacher knows what happens next.

Luckily as the Aunt of this cute girl I don’t have to count that often because let’s face it your job as an aunt is to spoil kids, at least I’m pretty sure I read that in the ‘How to be a good aunt’ handbook.  But there are times when the educator in me has to draw the line and then she gives me ‘the look.’  The ‘you can’t be serious…I’m going to pretend you didn’t just say that…I’m storing up my breath for a major tantrum‘ look.  I know you know the one I’m talking about.

Patterned Paper: October Afternoon, My Mind's Eye; Alphas:AC, Girl's Paperie; Glimmer Mist; Basic Grey Stud

When I first opened this pack of alphas from Girls Paperie

for another title all the numbers kind of ended up in a bunch together and I knew I had to use them all together in some way so the idea for the page was born.

I think having all this time on my hands is really allowing me to play at bit more with textures.  When you only have an hour or two to scrap you don’t want to waste time waiting for paint to dry.  Not that I’m a waiter even with the extra time, pretty sure I brought out the embossing gun on this one. anyway…wasn’t to fond of the base paper I used so I decided to go to town covering it up, first a layer of mists — I think I used 3 colors here, then a little paint…voila new paper perfect for my layout.

A with that I’m off to spend a day with this precious one, cross your fingers we don’t get this look at all today.
