Because they Aaaaargh.
Which has been swirling round my mind as I made my Daring Card for this week. (I wish I could have remembered it when Carys asked me for a joke two days ago. When put on the spot I can only remember a rude joke told to me 25 years ago. I'm not repeating it now. But whenever asked for a joke that one comes to mind first and allows no cleaner ones entry and I always have to say "I don't know" rather lamely)
Anyhoo this week we were all sent die sets from the generous Docrafts to play with. And if you join in this week you can win one of them too!
I was sent the Nautical set. The die sets look huge and I did wonder how it would all fit on a card. Well
a) you don't use all the dies at once
b) they are deceptive. I used a 5x5 cardbase which is not that big and managed to fit a load on anyway.
I've also done a layout this week. It is based on one of Shimelle's most excellent scrapbook starting points - a sketch for two 4x6 photos. My photos are not 4x6 but that is the beauty of scrapbooking - it is adaptable.
After I had started sticking down the first word of the title (using BG chipboard letters) I realised that I had made a layout within the last 4 months about a family walk that also started with "another". Fortunately they won't be in the same album as I have just finished one. Still a bit annoying though. But then we do have a lot of adventures on family walks (and many photos of the back of my kids!)
Phil photoshopped a photo of the day to demonstrate my mum's poor choice of headgear and how windy it was. I thought it was too mean to put that on a page. But will still show it here!
