Another freaking scrappy challenge sketch

Warning - this post contains images and descriptions of a younger and slightly more reckless me...

This one I love!! The sketch is so very cool - I will use the kites in the future - love the shape of them -but they didn't really suit the LO this time so a blob of glitter will have to suffice. And the criteria for your sketch is

'Please scrap something fun or humorous - we all need a laugh once in a while, and when there's nothing at all funny happening in our lives, it will be nice to look at our layouts and smile! You are not obligated to use clouds or kites in your layout - they just make me happy - so I put them in the sketch!'

How could I go past my blue jumpsuit??

I went shopping in the usual second hand stores with one of my (male and easily embarassable) friends for something to wear on our pub crawl. Anyway, we went into Vinnies, and I found the blue jumpsuit. Dixon about died when I tried it on. I was a size 10 (sigh) and this was a size 8. The very helpful lady in the shop said it would be just the thing for doing housework in(!!!).

So shiny. So veloury.
So Attractive.
With my hair big and luxurious, blue eyeshadow and probably even blue mascara - I was ready to hit the town...

By the end of the night, in our fav nightclub - Cocos - I was pretending to be Irish and I don't do good accents.

"Tequila sunrises, hmm we don't have them in Ireland, you must buy me one so I can try it out...'

'No I can't go to a party with you on the weekend as I am flying home tomorrow' -
This was my near undoing as the lad I told this one to turned out to be painting the outside of our next door neighbours house for the next couple of days - I was pretty much housebound.

Oh dear...

And that is my darling Hubby next to me - this was before we started going out - and
Batman behind us, our inspiration for everything!

And I still have the jumpsuit but fitting into it again is a mere dream.

Anyway - pop on over to Another Freaking Scrappy Challenge Site check out the other girls work - and there are some stunning and highly entertaianing works there. I can't wait to see what you all come up with!
