I'm convinced . . .

 . . . that's there's a little monster in our washing machine or dryer that eats socks.

Exhibit A:
These are all my girls' single socks that are left over from the laundry over the past few months.  Believe it or not, none of them match each other.  I've tried to "sneak" mismatched socks together (I mean, why can't the white Strawberry Shortcake sock be worn with a pink Strawberry Shortcake sock??), but my girls always call me on it.  WHERE in the world do all those missing socks go?  There's probably some secret land of single socks, remote controls and lost sticky notes.  And don't even get me started on my sunglasses.  I swear they grow feet and walk away.  Sigh.

Since I've cut back on my DT commitments, I've been able to take some nights off from scrapping (a much-needed break!).  Now I'm going back through my files and sharing things I never got around to posting here before.  Here's a Prima layout I made using the adorable new foam dress form stamp.

I do try and journal on almost every layout these days (even if it's just who, where and when), but sometimes I just feel like creating a page with pretty things and leaving it at that.  That's okay, right?  My girls certainly have PLENTY of layouts that tell a story.

I used Prima's new stencils as a mask with mist, then I outlined it with a Sakura Stardust pen:

I'm off to go fold a couple loads of laundry.  Hopefully every sock will have a little friend.  Have a great week!!

Oh I can so relate, I have been scrapping the many things Nate has been saying and doing and unfortunately they just don't fit into challenges, I am only now on 1 DT so I feel free, I have to tell you that I called the man to fix these problems recently and he found 2 socks (odd of course) that had found themselves under the tub in my washing machine....worth a look. Love you my friend. MElxx

Some pages are just pages for fun and to use up some products!!! Lawd, don't we all have 20 pages per event??? Seriously, at this point, I got NOTHING more to say about my strawberries for example, lol. Besides, it's not like God painted the sky and created the mountains and then inscribed lots of journaling next to them, LOL. L O L

You need to check out little miss matched socks. Yep they purposely sell socks that do NOT match. Totally solves your problem. ;)

Gorgeous layout Miss Stacy! And yes, making a pretty page without journaling now and then is a must! My socks disappear too - maybe we can match up our remains together and get some pairs? The worst part is I can NEVER throw out the singles just in case their pair ever comes back. And this goes back to infant socks. Maybe it is time I give up? haha
