White Shirt


Me: Boys, find a white shirt to put on and come here when you are done, I need to take a picture.
Boys: Why?
Me: Because I said so.
Boy #2: Mama, I don't have a white shirt.
Me: Why?
Boy #1: Because you said so.
Me: Oh dear.


Judith has an absolutely lovely inspiration photo up for her challenge at Jay Gee's Nook. I was inspired by the hues, softness and silhouettes. I created some faux leather paper with a few ink pads and foam.


The above conversation happened when I was attempting a good picture for a project I have up over at The Project Girl today, featuring some kits designed by Jen Allyson at Design House Digital. (Yes, Mom, you'll get a copy if I can get my act together to print it out!)

  1. I can relate to your dialogue--I try not to "do" white shirts/clothing of any kind at our house, too! Pasta sauce magnets, all ;).

    Love this beauty of a CAS card, Karen!

  6. The faux leather is so cool looking Karen! Your story about the boys with white shirts makes me laugh. I try to prepare myself for the boys all having nice shoes, pants and dress shirts for the holidays or school concert, but it never seems to happen. We took Ryan and Jonathon to a play on Saturday night and I was walking behind Jonathon laughing. The pants we bought two months ago are too short already and he had white socks on with his black dress shoes :)

  9. That's a beautiful card Karen and your boys are going to be heartbreakers. :) I can SO relate to the white shirt conversation. A white shirt and a 4yr old just shouldn't be together in the same room. Ever.
