Wonky Silhouette Digi

Hi there!

Well, I'm on my second week of full time Daycare and I'm doing okay!  

I don't know if I'll ever get used to getting up early though! In addition to my daughter in law going back to work for a while, my son has also started a brand new job, and once he goes on shift I may have to get up even earlier. Blech...hopefully not!

I love spending time with the grandkids though. They are SO much fun! We sing kids songs in dutch, and I hop them on my knees, sometimes together since Kai gets upset if I just do baby Lauryn. Oh my aching legs!! Lol...It's okay, they need the workout. :-)

While they were napping today I finished off a digi I've been working on for a while.


 It's a city street silhouette!

I started out making normal houses, but somehow they ended up skewed, and I liked it better. I'm really predictable, so any opportunity to do something a bit different makes me feel...well...

Unpredictable. Lol...

They're wonky, and I like wonky! Hope you do too!

CG from Cg-Says Something Loudly created this beautiful card with this Digi!

The inside:
 Awesome job, CG!

Have a wonderful rest of the week.

  24. Fabulous! Thanks so much, Carmen.

    I don't blame you for disliking the early mornings. I'm a night owl. How fun to make special memories with the grand kids though. :)

  25. Babysitting the grandchildren is always fun! It reminds me why I had mine while YOUNG! Once in awhile I have to bounce the 2.5 yr old and I, too, figure it has to be good for the legs.

    I love the wonky houses. Thank you.

  26. Thank you for this great image!!

    You are so lucky to have your grandchildren live close to you. They grow up so fast treasure each and every moment you spend with them.

    I use to be a morning person - but when I my health deteriorated, I found sleeping in to be awesome.
