Not Always So Sweet

The prompt this week over on Spunky Scrappers is Things Only a Mother Could Love.  The timing of this prompt was serendipitous because I'd just come across a picture of my daughter that I knew I wanted to scrap but I didn't have a "direction" for it yet.

April 2011 issue

Take a closer look at the actual picture...

That was a common pose whilst around my daughter in her first few months of life.  That girl was STINKY with a capital STINKY!!  I mean it was foul.  It was embarrassing.  It was so much worse than normal baby stink.  But it was hilarious!!!  We were choking trying to shield our noses from the assault while laughing hysterically.  And let me tell you, that girl is still the gassiest little thing, too!  I'm just waiting for the day she burps her ABCs.  LOL!

So, I hadn't done a sweet, "girly" layout in a while and thought it was perfect for this one.  Lots of fun with floss and buttons.

I have a huge supply of buttons that I rarely use. 

Details - DCWV paper; K&Company chipboard alpha; DMC floss; unknown buttons.

Be sure to jump on over to the Spunky Scrappers site to check out what the fabulous and talented ladies on the Design Team made for your inspiration.  You will not be disappointed!! 

And, did you know there's a Design Team Call going on at this very moment??!!  We're looking to add 4 to 6 more team members and a couple sketch artists!!  So, if you think you're a Spunky Scrapper, you have until the end of the week to submit your name, blogsite, and 3 layouts to

Spunky Scrappers is also in the midst of changing from a ning to a blogspot site!!!!  Such exciting changes going on!! 

Hope you had a great Monday and are on to a great week!

I so want to be a Spunky Skunk. I applied. Again. I think it's been about 6 months since my first try, so perhaps this time will the charm. Fingers crossed!
