Red alert, panic stations...
Can someone tell me why it is that although my daughter is a TOTAL organise freak when it comes to all the things SHE does, that she insists on constantly only giving me one day when she wants me to make her something!
Her organising freakiness is such that plastic boxes cause her to *sigh* almost as much as patterned paper causes me to open my handbag and get out my credit card! The best present she has ever received was a book about being organised! Everything, and I mean everything, has a proper place - with attached labels! I caught her boyfriend coming out of her room the other day, with his name taped to his forehead (just kidding... but even that wouldn't surprise me!). I tease her sometimes and pull out my label printer and when I see her drooling and casting furtive glances towards it, I put it away again. She takes the bait EVERY TIME, and when she asks if she can borrow it, I tell her the label cartridge has just run out - the look of disappointment on her face is priceless! Ha ha ha.
Where does this come from? I don't mean my meanness, I mean this need to be organised? Well...
I DON'T KNOW - I'm messy, perhaps whilst growing up she decided she really didn't want to be like her mum! Now the only time she makes a mess is when she is with me, so I can clean it up! I can't help but love all the quirkiness kids show as they grow and develop whilst they are growing up and learning who they are.
Anyway back to the panic... "I need a thank you card for someone who likes cats... like yesterday, that ok Mum?" my reply, like all accommodating mums... "yes, of course, when do you need it?". "By tomorrow". It is ten o'clock at night! Cheers, daughter mine! Not too organised today, are you, love?
So my cute little cat is from the 'CINDY LOO' Cricut cartridge, I also used the 'ELEGANT EDGES' cartridge to cut out the shape behind the cat. I used three different design papers as well as Cricut CS.
