9 Months Layout - Cards - My Creative Scrapbook

I created a layout and a couple of quick cards from the left over papers and embellishments from the April, Limited Edition Kit - My Creative Scrapbook.  I added in a paper lace doily, some gauze, glimmer mist, ink and stamping for texture.

The photograph is me as a baby at 9 months of age, such a chubby chops (hasn't changed)....
I remember the house we lived in, my parents built it and seriously, it was the most horrid 70's colours.  LOL  Purple shag-pile carpet throughout, my curtains were pale green and had birds on them.  I had a chenille ballerina bedspread, and a huge rag-doll my Mother made for me that used to sit on the bed.  The kitchen had bright orange loop net curtains and was full of trendy canisters and at the time modern orange stools at the bench.  I even remember eating my dinner each night at that bench, and stuffing the food I did not like underneath into the pantry part of the cupboard - I even educated my younger brother 'how to', so he would not dob on me!  I was such a good little girl eating my vegetables - until Mum smelt something not right and cleaned the pantry cupboard out.  Oh did I get into trouble.... 

Eating those horrid vegetables just about made me threw up!

memories........ (big smile)
and my cards....
 Looking forwards to creating with the next My Creative Scrapbook kit that will soon arrive...
