The "I love you too much!" story.



I love you too much

So the other day littlest nephew J ran up to his grandma and declared very loudly, "Grandma, I love you too much! " 
Beaming grandma corrected him..."so much, not too much." 
Aunt Y [aka me] asked "What about me? Don't you love me?" 
He answered, "No. Only grandma." 
Puzzled since Aunt Y is only his fave person ever *winks*, Aunt Y tried to hug J, hoping to change his mind...but he ran away. When she finally "caught" him 5 seconds later, she discovered his dirty little secret - he just pooped in his diaper and wanted grandma to change his diaper! Once he was in a clean diaper, he happily ran over to Aunt Y and said, "I love you."

Turns out he really didn't want me to change his dirty diaper and will run away from me every single time it's soiled. *LOL* Gotta love how considerate he is towards me! :) 



I wanted to play along with True XOXO scrapbooking's challenge to complete a layout under an hour. I went with the minimalist approach...did a little masking and misting, a little fussy cutting and embellishing and lots of journaling...to complete this in 45 minutes. The bulk of the time was spent colouring the chipboard letters with a black Sharpie and then outlining them with a white pen. :)

Supplies: Sassafras patterned papers, Maya mists, Heidi Swapp chipboard letters, black Sharpie, SRM stickers, embellishments, black pen, white pen.

Love it love it love it. I don't think I've ever told you how much I value journaling. You absolutely rock with your journaling. I cannot for the life of me believe that you completed this thing in under an hour. I don't think you want to see the results of something I've completed in under even TWO hours!
