On our way to church this week, my boys were in the backseat, playing some sort of "blow 'em up" game with their toys. It was LOUD. I turned to my husband and wondered, Would it sound different with girls in the backseat? (My friends with girls tell me it would be louder, LOL!) Raising boys is an adventure.
My boys' relationship is a constant topic for me. Inspired by the die cut tags from Sassafras' Monstrosity line (heh), I made this page, called "2 Monsters?" (click the image to see it larger):
Lots of stash on this one. I added the little red blop on the top to create a better sense of balance.
My boys aren't always monsters. I wrote about the other side of their relationship inspired by this photo, another 8x12 photo:
I used some newer Lily Bee papers, which for some reason made me think fall. I also used my ubiquitous Bazzill stitching template and some gorgeous Pebbles felt trees that I've been hoarding. Time to put those babies to use. (BTW, Jackie asked about my stitching: I do both hand and machine stitching. Sometimes I stitch with a template by hand, other times I stitch without. I'll post about this in the future.)
Do you have any relationships in your life that are complicated? Look at both sides in one or two LOs, and let your product choices reflect the emotion, whether it be monsters or serene trees.
