The bliss of having a pram...

New-friends

So I met up with bloggy pal Lavina and her lovely daughter Saachi when I was in Melbourne. And after 3 nephews and 1 niece,I finally experienced the bliss of a pram. Yes, I have a super mean brother who never provided me with a pram. *winks* I had to carry all of his children until they could walk [I have decent biceps to prove it...haha!] Of course little Saachi wanted to be carried so the pram conveniently became the "trolley" to haul our craft supplies..*LOL*


No prizes for guessing why this is a composite layout. *winks* Lavina and I had so much to talk about, we forgot to take a photo together. So she sent me a photo of her and her daughter, and I pulled out whatever pictures I had of the malls to put the story together. :)

Supplies: Bo Bunny patterned papers, Crafter's Workshop template, American Crafts thickers and stickers, Jenni Bowlin stickers and pearls, MT tape, Golden fiber paste, Maya Road stamp, brads, paper clip, white pen, brown pen, twine, tag, washer, photo turn.

Playing along with the sketch challenge at Artful Delight.

I so, so often forget that one photo of someone or of the group together. It's a beautiful LO and a good example of how to record your good memories without a photo from the day.

You wouldn't think scrapbookers would forget to take pictures together, yet it happens all the time! What's up with that?! And what's up with your brother?? You're expected to carry one (plus the diaper bag and whatever else) and somehow hold hands with 3 more?! I can't believe you wouldn't have demanded a stroller two or three kids ago!
