Hello to all you lovely Counterfeit Kit readers/followers.
This month we have a teeny tiny hop for you and we're hoping it's just because
the sun is shining and nobody wants to be indoors creating.
The full list can be found at the bottom of my post just in case you want to start from the start and finish at the finish!
Onto my creation for this month's hop.
I was going to create a panel card to fit with CH#3 but then
I found that chipboard triangle on my desk so I changed my mind and created a
second CH#1 which is to use more than five triangles on your layout.
The title here is quite ironic as the layout is all about hubby giving up smoking
and just in case you can't read the journalling here under the flap...
Here you are in the 2005(ish) on a mini cruise to Norway. Nanny and Gramps were looking
Imogen and this was supposed to be a lovely relaxing few days away from it all.
However, at the time, you were giving up smoking and you were “hell” to be with.
OK, you might be smiling in the photo but being in the small cabin with you for 3 days was
probably the worst 3 days of my life!
The ultimate came when you threw a tantrum because you wanted to hold your own passport
and you stormed off ashore. The ship set sail again later and I had no idea
whether yu were onboard or not.
I could easily have divorved you at this point.
You continueed to smoke until I gave you an ultimatum, fags or me?
and Imogen rolling you a fag out of A4 paper sealed the deal.
We’ve been through a lot, you and me, this being one of the hardest but it does show that we
can get through anything with our love for each other.

I didn't know the story of the child rolling up a piece of paper for him until today but
it and my threat obviously worked and we've had nearly 10 years of a smoke free house.
What are you glad you never gave up on?
Let me know before you hop to Cindy's blog.
