I got online this afternoon to see what time our local scrapbook store closed today. (Turns out that they're closed on Sundays.) I saw that they had posted a new challenge so I took it! The challenge was to make a funny ATC with a photo of yourself as a child. I don't have a lot of photos of me as a child. I think they're mostly slides. But I do have the one above. Yes, I'm on a carseat on the side of a tractor. Looks safe, doesn't it? That's probably illegal today. It reminds me of the words to a country song:
...Our cribs were covered in lead based paint. No child proof lids, no seat belts in cars. Rode bikes with no helmets and still here we are... We got daddy's belt when we misbehaved. Had 3 TV channels you got up to change. No video games and no satellite. All we had were friends and they were playin' outside... No bottled water, we drank from a garden hose. And every Sunday, all the stores were closed...
I won again!!! This time I won Carolyn Peeler's giveaway. She created this piece of art for her new book and to celebrate she gave it away. I was the lucky winner. This is giving me hope! Someday I'll win that $5000 Home Depot prize! :-)
Tomorrow we're going shopping for a graduation dress for J then going over to eat with some friends.
