I must apologise peeps...

...y'see I really hadn't intended to make you suffer yet another card with that paper on today (I've tried to make it up to you by using one of the new Sarah Kay images), but yesterday I stumbled across this challenge blog. I had to make this card!
Lemme explain...

One of the reasons I'm soooooo happy to be a part of Stampavie is the fact that as a child I loved Sarah Kay - I even had Sarah Kay wallpaper in my bedroom. And pink gingham curtains...See where I'm going with this? The Moving Along With the Times theme for this week is "Childhood Memories" and every day until 1988 I woke up to Sarah Kay and pink gingham (what happened in 1988 is another story**...)

So there's my childhood memory card - it makes me smile :D Thanks to all over at MAWTT for the fabby inspiration!


**Another story... 1988 was the year my brother got a Boglin. Anyone remember them? If not have a looksie here... Pretty vile lookin' yeah? Trust me, the reality of them was even worse - they were made of the most disgusting feeling slimy rubber you could ever imagine and had eyes that glowed in the dark. I can't even begin to describe the nastiness of them. The arrival of that Boglin into our family stopped Sarah Kay and pink gingham being the first thing I saw every morning...my brother found it utterly hilarious to place the evil creature on my pillow every night. Right in front of my face. So that when I woke up I was staring right into it's glowing-eyed, revolting face. Some of you know that nowadays I'm a troubled insomniac.
Is it any freakin' wonder?

Poor you! I guess I should be grateful that I've only got a lil sis then, and didn't have any brothers with scary toys!
mind you........ I do remember being scared of my Giant teddy bear.......LOL!
LOVE your sweet Sarah Kay card!

Are you kidding me, give me more, more inspirations with this gorgeos paper! I love it, in fact I bought 3 sheets just for that side of it, lol! And I cut all my papers to 6x6 when they arrive, I find less waste, and so it looks like I have even more of it! Your card is just absolutely STUNNING, has the wee vintage feel, mixed with simple, elegance! I'm in love, do you need my address, hehe!
What a loving brother!? NOT. I have never heard of them before?

Hi Leann! your brother has a lot to answer!!!! your card and earlier memories are just adorable, I love Sarah Kay too, but unfortunately can't remember that she was part of my childhood - enid bliton seemed to play a big part, first noddy and the dreaded big ears (another story) and then the famous 5 - ah those were the days! and did I say I love your pretty card .. .. I do!
hugs, annie x
