losing control......

I was gifted some gorgeous Websters pages back in 2009.
I would lovingly admire the beautiful papers stroke them talk to them
but never, never lay a hand on them!!!
Till one day I reached the point of no return and decided to 
make a layout 
with one of these beautiful papers
well one thing led to another and I could not stop
I threw caution to the wind,
I listened to my heart and not my head 
I defiled these gorgeous papers
I ravaged them by tearing them 
I distressed them with no consideration for their feelings
I splattered them with inks and paint
I added graffiti, stuck letters on them 
I smothered them with embellishments 
and in a desperate attempt to ask forgiveness
for my selfish destructive acts
I added flowers, beautiful flowers
 hoping to win  back some respect........


  1. Wow, what wonderful LOs and so great papers. I can absolutely understand why you never wanted to use them... But I am sure they will forgive you, you made something absolutely wonderful out of them.

  2. Irini, how many times have I found myself in the same situation!! Just looking, admiring, dreaming about, but never daring to touch my precious precious precious papers! (do I sound like Gollum????)

  12. Wow! Love what you did here Irini! Simply gorgeous! Yup, I do the same thing...some papers are just too gorgeous to cut. It's good that you got to use them rather then forget about them, and then remember them when they're out of date.
