bedtime stories

wandering through the bookstore the other day, i stumbled upon a book that deb and i had as a kid that we would read over an over. the book was "a bargain for frances" . and i have so many memories of curling up and reading it again and again (even though i knew the ending). i told david i wanted to buy this book for our kids. and i told him the premise of the story. i don't want to spoil it for you but basically, frances got punk'd over a tea set from her friend thelma and well it was bad news that thelma messed with frances b/c thelma got punk'd back. david laughed when he heard this b/c he said "that explains a lot about you" - i pretended that i didn't know what he was talking about. but we have this book again and i plan on passing it along to our kids to read.
i created this LO the other day as i was thinking about 2006. i had some bits of papers and left over embellishments on my table i wasn't ready to chuck yet so i decided to create this LO. this year should be fairly interesting and challenging. but i enjoy that. and i wanted to capture this in case i feel differently later (LOL)!

LOL! I love that you used the word 'punk'd' to describe a kid's book! Too funny, Caroline! LOL!
