My Behind


When we were walking to the Bury market last weekend:

M: Mommy, me, Jovie and daddy, we’re skinny.
Me: Whoooa, what? How about me?
M: No, you’re not skinny?
Me: Why?
M: Because you have a fat butt
Hubby: Emma, mommy doesn’t have a fat butt
M: Yes she does, she needs to work-out
Me: {grumbles} Oh ok…

After we came home I secretly ran upstairs and looked at myself in the mirror — or my behind to be more exact. I twisted my head and flipped my pants size out and it said size 2. So I’ve outgrown my size 0/1 — I swear giving birth made my hip wider — and I’m no spring chicken but I really think M needs to get her eyes check {::SMILE}.

M’s first day out of school and I’m taking her to a doc’s appointment, ha! Laters!!!

Page details:

This page was inspired by the Play Date Cafe challenge #39. Check out the muted neutral and elegant colors! I LOVE and perfect for this photo that I printed out a few weeks ago. The page is pretty simple. The main pieces are from My Mind’s Eyes, a Halloween kit from last year but if you don’t use the witch and things that reminds or say Halloween this kit makes a lovely man page. I added some stamping too, the air balloon that was stamped on a pattern paper.The flower, tag and the two pieces on the right side of the photo came from a sheet of flock stickers. I don’t remember what company.

The photo is of my super adorable husband (I hope he’ll miss this blog post today… he’s not too fond of me advertising him as adorable, he he…). He was reading a magazine, so nothing mind shattering there, but he really does love to read and he reads anything. He can go from stupid to classic. From fiction to non-fiction. Sometimes he reads more than I do which bugs me because I love to read too and I do want to read quite a bit but sometimes I got to pick and choose what I want to use my time for. That’s why I love this guy. He’s very knowledgeable and it’s really fun to talk to him about anything and everything. There’s just something extra hot about a guy who reads {::SMILE}.

  1. oh, Savitri! I really love this! I love how you used all neutral colors which gives it such a great vintage feel. I've been thinking that I need to use the balloon image from PCD for a vintage project, just haven't been able to get it in my head yet. thanks for the inspiration. Oh, and yes, guys who read are most definitely hot! Also, guys who do housework and know their way a round a kitchen. I think that's hot too!
  2. Fabulous layout, Savitri! Love the paper piecing on the balloon. A size 2 behind is a tiny behind! LOL! I'd be happy to just make it to a single digit size.

  6. savitri....this is stunning. I love when we get layouts that really work and tell a story and this is definitely one! Curious....where in the UK are you living? Your story about walking to Bury market spurs my interest because my husband is from Heywood in Manchester. So glad to have your LO in the gallery at The Play Date Cafe : )

  14. I LOVE the design of this layout! And I hope he DOES read this post! Your story about the size 2 fat butt cracked me up! MY son (who is now 19) pokes my waist when I'm in my bathing suit and I tell him if I hadn't gotten pregnant with him, I'd still be skinny. That shut him up!!
