The Things I Say

This is a page I finished late last night and I'm happy with it. Actually I love it. I even left a bit of spare space in the top corner - do you see? I'm itching to add more to it but don't want to do overkill. I'm terrible for that - "ooh a bit of space, cover, glue, slap on some more and then a bit more just to be sure." I don't know when to stop so have taken to consulting Craig who is honest to the point that you want to punch him But I do, I like this one even with the space.
Whoopidooings - Carmen Wing - The Things I Say - Toddler Scrapbook Page - WordleRuby is saying more and more lately, something new everyday so I wanted to get it down and the wordle cloud seemed perfect as opposed to just doing a list.

Materials used:

  • Bazzill Cardstock
  • A wordle cloud
  • Sassafras papers, stickers and alphas
  • The deer is cut from a piece of fabric from a Kenner Road kit
  • Leonardo Da Vinci bookmark - bit random but I thought it looked 'motherly' it's probably something completely opposite.
  • Oh and not forgetting the Cropadile - for the holes all round the wordle cloud and the mask underneath it all. That's another thing that once you start, it's hard to stop. My floor looked like it had been snowing ;)

Just off topic a bit now. Does anyone know a polite way to end a blog post? I always sit here for a few minutes wondering how to sign off. It feels rude to just list my materials and go as it's like being in conversation with someone and just walking away without saying goodbye - other people seem to have it so down pat and I'm not a natural conversationalist at all.
So yes - any ettiquette tips would be nice please :)

 Thank you, ciao for now!


  1. I can see why you like the page - it's great. Nice and lively.

  2. It is gorgeous. I really wish I had started scrapping when the girls will little. I love the word cloud and what you did with your cropadile. I am presently planning out my scrappages for Scrap club on Saturday, so quite excited to be getting back into it.

    I always find it difficult to end post. I go from TTFN to Thanks for stopping by. It is difficult - you almost need your own signature ending.
