do i get angry?


I'm sure most of you would think that based on my bloggy demeanor that I am not one to get angry. And, actually, I'm not. I am one of those "quiet... quiet... still quiet... EXPLODE" types. Bad for the ol' ticker, I know, but it is who I am.

So, because of that, my first layout for my January Guest Designer spot for All About Me was kind of a toughie. Challenge #9: What Makes Me Angry is ready for you to play along with us. I finally decided that when I do explode, it's the little things that finally overwhelm me.

My layout is about the dirty dishes, the laundry, the LIFE that gets in the way of when I want to have fun. It's not necessarily an angry feeling always... sometimes more of an annoyance.



I have to shout out to my girl, Heidi!! She has been playing around with bubble wrap as a way of applying ink with texture to her pages. I finally tried it and LOVE it! See the blue dots? That is Tim Holtz blue distressing ink applied via bubble wrap!

See the white and black larger circles? That is all me... applied by my infamous toilet paper roll applicator (LOL).



Well, I hope you find some time to join us this month over at All About Me! The new forum is up, there are new, cool things set in place (see Monday's post from AAM), and we are having fun over there!

Love yourself a good Sketchy Thursdays sketch? I made one exclusively for AAM for January. It can be used on any challenge in January as your starting point if you are one of those peeps that just needs a sketch to get your mind going. It can be found on their site in the sidebar.

Hope to see you over there!

I could've written this post myself, Diana!! I'm the exact same way... it's not usually anything "big" that upsets me... it's all the little, stupid, annoying things that add up! Like dishes and laundry and socks in the middle of the floor!

Oh, and I think you stole a picture of MY kitchen sink... it usually looks JUST like that! lol
