Out of the Mouths of Scrapbookers...

These days I feel like the dog in the movie "Up" (I love this movie and highly recommend whether you have kids or not - Ed Asner as a grumpy old man, who would have thunk?!).  So the dog is having a conversation with Ed Asner, (by means of a device) and mid-sentence he says "Squirrel!" and is totally diverted.  That's me these days... except the word is "Prompt!". 

So I have compiled a list of the things you might hear around the house if you stopped by (maybe actually coming from my foul mouth, maybe just the voices in my head).
  • Leave me alone... I'm in my happy place, dammit!
  • I have homework I must get done for my class so I can't do that today.
  • I know I'm taking up the kitchen table, but I've been considering moving it all into your room.
  • No, I don't have any scissors!
  • No, I can't make you a sandwich... I have adhesive on my fingers.
  • Don't sweep around me - all those little pieces are for embellishment clusters!
  • Oh, that was nothing - just my punch got stuck... oh, and I think we may need to replace this tile.
  • WooHoo....Prompt!
  • Everybody's hungry! Have an M&M!
  • Will you make him stop choking... I'm trying to get my letters on straight.
  • If I wanted to look at you, I'd be scrapbooking your picture right now.
  • I heard you... you said yada yada yada blah blah blah.
  • I know you're sick, but get out of the bathroom so I can put on my makeup and take a photo for my avatar.
  • I'm sorry I'm 3-hours late picking you up, but I gotta Prompt.
  • Look, the only reason I had you in the first place was so that I could scrapbook my grandkids - go away.
  • Did somebody touch one of my pink brads?!
  • Honey, I'm sure your leg is only a little broken... it can wait until I post this page to the gallery.
  • Oh My Gosh.  OH MY GOSH.  Did anyone see a little punched butterfly?  DID ANYONE SEE A LITTLE PUNCHED BUTTERFLY?!!!  (Can't you make another one?) Oh.
  • No, I don't have lunch money baby... I need adhesive.
  • My Prompt's not here yet... I think I need a Xanax.
  • How many times do I have to tell you not to eat in the kitchen?!!
  • What?  What?  What?  What?  What?  What?  What?  What?  What?  What?  What?  What?

NOTE:  I know butterflies have nothing to do with fishing... or arrows... or maps.  But it's for my personal album and butterlies provide continuity - besides, is a layout really done if there aren't any butterflies?

Go have some fun & be creative today... you deserve it!
