live in Technicolor.....

well.. heeeellllooooooooooooooooo..... i'm here to share a little bit of fun with you.. {oh and a rand may be at the end..sorry...}
well to start with .. this one is all about the Lily Bee Design MEMORANDUM collection kit... i got this as my showcase for a manufacturer watch over at the boxx.... and how fun is it.. full of cool classics and some fun but not super bold prints....
anyho. i went with the not cool basics and a splash of not so bright pattern... added some super FUNKY photos and wallah....
"Technicolor"
Technicolor
and then some closies... {the only things not in the kit. the paint {obviously, the black card, thread and the technicolor title thats Echo park and the tags}...
so there you go.. a 6x4 photo at the top.. some black paint .. and some super RANDOM but planned well sort of ..as i went along planned stitching.......
the title ...
and then a couple of mini prints.. cool hey.. i must admit that i really like the way this all came together..wooohoooo i 'm lovin a layout... sweet as.. its the first time in ages that i've liked everything about a layout... woohoo.. HAPPY dance..... so thats it on the scrappy front..

BUT i just need to get this out .. so sorry suckers... fast forward to the comments if you want.. so ... is it just me or does anyone else feel somedays .. why.. why the crap am i a mum.. dont get me wrong i love my kids..they are almost all i have..but seriously there are days where i just think why the fuck.. when they just dont want to listen.. when they yell at me... or when after finally having enough of not getting listened to i loose it and ORDER them to bed.. well tonight took the cake.. i ordered to bed... but gave them the option of givin mama and papa kisses before they went and yes i'd still read them a LITTLE book.. so what does Tarj do.. he gets up and kicks the wall...seriously.. YOU are only 5.. holy crap what kind of attitude are you going to have in a few years... {and yes needless to say he WASNT read any books}... but .. i just wonder.. why.... ??? i know i shouldnt complain they are pretty good kids... and they are smart... granted Ivy does talk alittle too much..but mostly they are good..so why do i doubt somedays on having them.. i hate that i think it sometimes... and then they'll look at me or ask for a kiss or just do something funny and then i forget ...but is it normal to feel like this.. i know everyone has their bad days..but please someone tell me they have minutes or seconds when You think that...and i'm not insane..please.. oh and anyone who knows me KNOWS that i would never hurt them so please dont ring the child protection unit... i think that i will be better.. in about..oh i dont know as long as it takes me to finish writing this...but.... just a big fat BLAH... so thanks for listening..and i just had to vent..sometimes i hate not having someone here to actually say these things out loud..but then again i'm not sure that i would actually SAY them if someone was here... anyho.. thats it...
bye and thanks for letting do that.. oh heck its MY blog...so i can say what i want... ,, VENT ended..

i hope you all have a great couple of days.. and if i dont see you sooner i'll be back sunday for the SESH...

Your Layout is nom nom nommy!!! And we have kids because we are COMPLETELY BONKERS!!!!! We love them with everything we have....and more, and sometimes it's just exhausting. There is no "Self" anymore there is a person who has the responsibility of of others......man it can be blooming hard work.....your ALL good Miss L to the J.....venting is the best thing you can do : )

Ok, first of all the page. It is super duper awesome. Just the right amount of color and detail without losing the photos which are super awesome.
Now re your ramble. Yes yes. I sometimes wonder if I would be a different mum if I only had two or even three and that I didn't sign up to this gig to be treated without respect. And I am not sure at what age you should expect that. I continue to try and teach them but some days, well.....
I had a melt down as I call it about 2 weeks ago and I ran away for 5 hours (to the shops and then to the supermarket....woot woot. Still did the Mum thing and thought of the family and that I still had to feed them). But my time away helped and after a day or two I found the strength again to get on with it and not let them outplay me. So in the end I WON.
But yes, I have a 10 year old whom we cannot speak to without getting a backchat from. Honestly. If I said his top was red he would have some smart arsey comment and probably tell me it was blue.
So in saying all this, when they are in bed at night and I reflect on my day, even it was an ordinary one, I still love them to bits and I look forward to seeing them the next day.....well until about 8.30 when I am so glad we can leave for school....lol.
