Gutter Girlz Prompt #9

Hey all! I have recently found a great blog called Gutter Girlz. The ladies on there are just amazing! They really scrap with all their heart and I love that! I love showing all that emotion through your scrapbooking. This time the prompt was "I Can't." So I decided to do a LO about my husband and how I can't help myself for loving him. He is the best thing in my life and I hope he will always know that. I found this poem on the internet, typed it up, and printed it out on cream colored cardstock. The poem reads:

I'm not supposed to want you
I'm not supposed to care
And yet I spend my time dreaming
of all that we could share

I'm not supposed to think about you
or wonder where you've been
but no matter how I fight it
Thoughts of you sneak in

I'm not supposed to ponder
where you are each night
But you creep into my vision
When the stars shine bright

I'm not supposed to yearn so
Always wishing you were here
But I hunger for your kisses
And I long to draw you near

I'm not supposed to imagine
Where you are and what you do
I know I shouldn't caterto a single thought of you

I'm not supposed to need you
I know these things I do
And yet I can't help myself
Because I fell in love with you

I also did a new technique for me and that is embroidering on a LO. I embroidered all of the pink flowers that you see. The prompt also included the use of pink, so I have that in my paper. I really enjoyed this challenge!! I encourage all of you to stop by and check out that blog. It is awesome! So much inspiration. I have a link to it on here, so check it out!!! Thanks for looking! Hope you all are having a great week! Hugs!!

Pin It!
