Mummys and Darlings

Now onto Sassafras' CHA challenge Day 2...

Marcy set this one up and her challenge was to use alpha stickers as a design element rather than just a title. Well.... you know I love this idea at the best of times, but a challenge.... then count me in!

I've got plenty of ideas of what to do with these mini Sassafras alphas, I've got them by the bucket-load in every colour of the rainbow. But for today's challenge I made a little collage out of them - almost like a patterned paper but with a bit of texture. Hey, it's a great way of using up all those odd letters and numbers you know you'll never use as a title (but still can't bear the thought of throwing them away)

And to give it a little bit more oomph I scattered some pearls around in there too.... helped fill the gaps. Now this is very old-school Sass paper. It's been one of those papers that was just so beautiful I've been 'saving it'. Of course, it eventually gets to the stage where you realise you'll save it forever unless you actually take the plunge and cut into that baby. All the products for this page (except the Sassafras alpha stickers) came from my Kreatorville Kit from May (yes, alright.... that's May 2010) Now you know exactly how long I've been saving it!

The journaling tells the story of how Munchy has heard me call her 'darling' so many times that she actually thinks that's the real word for child. That's how she now refers to other kids. She'll want to play "Mummy's and Darlings" or ask me questions like "is the baby that Mummy's darling?"
Very cute!

I'm coming back tomorrow with Day 3 :-)
