- someone stealing one of each of our slippers on Christmas eve (whoever you are, someone up there saw you do it ok?!! and its not Santa Claus!)
- having to play Lego and Barbie dolls for the whole of Christmas day
- carrying out the annual 'toy purge' amidst some protests
I had a good Christmas because I remembered to be thankful and got lots of hugs.
So.... Lesson learnt this Christmas:

Layout Title: "Give Me the Simple Life"
Journaling for this layout is taken from one of my favourite songs "Give Me The Simple Life" (Lyrics by Harry Ruby, Music by Rube Bloom)
Folks are blessed who make the best of everything
Living by their own philosophy
Everyone beneath the sun must find a way
I have found the only life for me
I don't believe in fretting or grieving
Why mess around with strife
I never was cut out to step and strut out
Give me the simple life
Some find it pleasant dining on pheasant
Those things roll off my knife
Just give me tomatoes and mashed potatoes
Give me the simple life
A cottage small is all I'm after
Not one that's spacious and wide
A house that rings with joy and laughter
With the ones you love inside
Some like the high road, I like the low road
Free from the care and strife
Sounds corny and seedy but yes indeedy
Give me the Simple Life

Here's my contribution to all the lovely Christmas goodness going on at Purple Onion right now. (Kiasu Singaporean shoppers alert - there's a SALE on! Date's been extended - good stuff)
Love the photo - especially how that big golden ball lines up perfectly with his butt....totally unposed - very Ben.

I love how it looks like someone spilled pesto sauce all around the white letters. And I love the 'mucus' look on the "Good Stuff" - haha, more cooking in store!
Claudine Hellmuth's Sticky Back Canvas - Good Stuff!
My favourite page / effect
So I'm almost done (just a bit of journaling needed here and there)....now to move on to the next project.
P.S. Is it normal that I keep smelling the multi-medium...? That stuff just smells to good to be glue you know? I seriously love it..... it glides along so smoothly, sticks perfectly and I absolutely love the finish. And did I mention the smell?....Hmmm, does this qualify as glue-sniffing?

Journaling - "Hug tight tight, Hug three times, Hug while you can"
This layout says what I'm feeling right now - that the year went by so fast and I want to remember to hug the Critters all I can, while I can. Beth used to be "Li'l Bear" 'cos she was 'hibernating' in my tummy....seems like only yesterday.
Symbolism Junkie says Did you notice the string going up and down representing the many ups and downs in life? (Haha, yah, I just made that up - so lame). No, nothing symbolic this time, just like the colours and the photo. (It's slightly misty cos my lens was fogged up - nice)
