Counting the years isn't the same as making the years count...

Hey there,

Haven't been scrapping much lately, 'cause I am not in the mood to sit in my attic all alooooooone. I am more into watching the telly, and especially my recently bought DVD series of "My so-called life". I had to watch that show, as die-hard Jared Leto-worshipper, ofcourse ;) And I must say I am enjoying it thoroughly...He's so darn cute! But vague, heartbreakingly vague even. The serie gets to me, I am back in highschool instantly. All insecure, withdrawn, head over heels in love with someone I can never call my own...So depressing, so recognizable. I had made a deal with myself to watch 1 episode every day of the week, every workday more specifically. Since there are 19 episodes, I should have been able to enjoy the series for almost a whole month! Go figure...Got the DVD on Monday, and I have only 3 episodes left to watch...Teehee..And I really can't imagine why the show got cancelled after 1 season!!

I actually did a little scrappy project too, I had started on it like 2 weeks ago, and was finally in the mood to finish it! It's basically a transparant LO, framed by a currogated board with a circle cut from it. Did some painting, embossing, glimmer misting, stamping, etc. As title & journaling I used the phrase "Counting the years isn't the same as making the years count..." I thought this sentence was appropiate for the engagement picture of my parents. (Back in 1973) As my mom passed away almost 3 years ago, we are so very much aware that it is soooo important to make the times you have together count. Seconds chances rarely happen...

I would love it if you would take a look at my LO and leave me some LUV! And remember to let your loved ones know they are loved by you!!! Perhaps a nice Valentine's Day card, a date or a present...? I still want to make some Valentine's cards of my own. Any nice ideas/links/sketches/whatever? Let me know!

Happy scrapping, happy living & loving. XOXO
P.S. The woodgrain-like background is actually my floor, since the LO is clear... :) )
