Scrap and Play have their first challenge up and with LOAD well under way
too, I was in need a bit of something to get me going.
This sketch was perfect.
The LOAD prompt was "Puppy Love" and asked us to scrap about something that we loved
when we were growing up.
I changed my title to "Pippy Love"
and the journalling reads (hankies at the ready!)...
"There was Billie Beans and Mouse, Rabbit and so many others that I loved and cherished. However, there was one that got away - Pippy Long Stockings was one of my favourites until she vanished. Our Primary School was holding a Blue Peter Bring & Buy sale and as I walked through the school gates to see what I could buy with MY pocket money, another young girl had just done the same - she was walking out with MY Pippy Long Stockings. My Mum had given her away. My husband says I’m a hoarder and I think this is the reason why - my Mum gave everything away, my first ring, my Brownie Uniform with all my badges and all those sentimental other things that I wish I had now. I vowed I would never give anything away that held sentimental value which is why our loft is full of
teddies. clothes, bikes etc etc etc.
I found out recently that Mum does keep ALL my handmade cards - knowing what she has always been like, this news brought a lump to my throat.
Imogen will probably curse me in years to come when she has to sort through all those things that I have kept although she is a bit of a hoarder too so I think she will understand!!! "
What did you love when you were growing up?
Are you a hoarder?
