The Story of the 'Sick Bowl'

Good Morning,

As my regular blog readers know, Louis gives me many a story to scrap. Today is no exception.
So for my 'Studio' DT page this week, I have scrapped the story of 'The Sick Bowl'.
Does every family have a sick bowl?
This below was ours. A light weight, melamine bowl. Easy to clean : )
That was until I knocked it down from the top of the cupboard a couple of weeks ago and it shattered. Dropping things from a height onto a tiled floor, isn't good!

(click photo to enlarge)

Louis came into the kitchen, knelt down to the pieces and was devastated.
''Oh no, I loved this sick bowl''. .... ''all the memories''
I had to keep this story. Who else would feel sad at a sick bowl breaking???

I used a piece of MME paper from my Cocoa Daisy Kit along with the corrigated Jillibean alphas. The red paint is Claudine Helmuth. I love the feel of this paint and love how it smooths on so nicely with the side of a credit card. Love this technique. And a water colour black pencil has been used LOTS.

Here is this weeks sketch that inspired me. If it inspires you too, visit the Studio and link up your page : )

I'm fighting off a cold right now. The sore throat started Friday and has now thankfully gone, just left feeling tired, achey and abit 'snotty'.
(love that word!!!!!)
And by the way, for my non UK friends who commented yesterday, the X Factor is the UK's Simon Cowell version of American Idol. Hope that makes more sense now.

Tons to do now. Lots of work and a brand spanking new Cocoa Daisy Kit landed on Friday and hasn't been given the attention it deserves yet. ooohhhh and I forgot to mention the 4 add-ons that came with it too : ) : ) : )
So much to play with and so so many ideas. I need a whole week to scrap, if only!!

Have a happy Monday.
Lots of love xxxx

Oh yeah, I know about the sick bowl! I love that you scrapped the broken pieces! Sometimes I get sentimental attachment to things like that, scrapping seems to be a good way to hold on to it. Also, doesn't hurt that it's a gorgeous page!

Reading Louis' comment made me literally laugh out loud! I totally remember the sick bowl at my parents house, which ironially was also green.
