Speaking of marbles, I have a childhood memorable of my friend's father who used to scare the crap out of me the few times I went over there to play. Her name was Glennie June and her parents were very old. Glennie June had a sister who was in high school for heaven's sake! Her father had a booming voice and one time he walked into the kitchen where we were having Kool Aid and he yelled at his wife, "Emma Louise, you have lost ALL your marbles!"
She whipped around and whacked him with good nature, but not before I saw the look of fright sweep over her face. I was conflicted between thinking it was cool that an old lady still collected marbles and thinking it was weird that an old lady still collected marbles.
Either way, I knew that for some reason it had scared her for a second, so after that I made sure I kept track of ALL my marbles. I still have them. Even my special bottle of metallic marbles.
They are ready for playing, proudly on display as memorables on either side of my Lil Bo Peep pitcher, and proof that I still have my marbles, no matter what Mister says. However, one of these days I'm sure the twins will sell me my own marbles out of one of their cardboard retail shops, which would be proof that I'm wrong and, in fact, I have lost my marbles!
Arteests, head's up! We have another new crafter come to follow along with us! Please welcome Sandy of Simply Sandy! Thank you, Sandy! She's just made a crack-up card featuring Captain Von Undervare!

*So, turns out I should have posted first and then baked yesterday as I went and missed the deadline for the ColourQ challenge. I'll link it later during the After Tour so it's all good.
