Dans Ma Maison and "A Book of You" FREEBIE Part Two

This week, the challenge at Dans Ma Maison is "Doors", and so I figured I wouldn't give them just ANY doors, I'd give them
THE Doors...

And now for your freebie!

Today we are celebrating the fact that I have (somehow) survived the annual school jeans expedition with THE PRINCESS. Normally this child radiates the serenity which comes from being blonde and assured of one's absolute perfection. But alas, the Eighth Grade is such a hotbed of social pitfalls that even Her Royal Blondness was in full-blown adolescent-angst-mode at the mall this year. This manifested itself as an unending stream of anxious (and judging from her glare at responses, rhetorical) questions that sounded something like this:

How low on the hip is a low-rise supposed to be? Which is cooler, the skinny cut or the boot cut? Do flares make my butt look big? OMG, what if ALL the kids shop here and EVERYONE has this same pair of jeans? Is a size 4 fat?

AAAAAARRRRGGGHHH!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Thankfully, after six hours of this (and a long, arduous trudge through EVERY STORE in the mall), we emerged with a supply of jeans that met with THE PRINCESS's exacting standards, and by the time we were in the car she had regained her tiara of confident magnificence.
ANYWAY....
Part Two of "A Book of You" is a collection of eight journaling cards, to help jumpstart the journaling engines. Each one has a different design and a different question about YOU. And you can snag them HERE:

  3. Tammara your Doors piece is a brilliantly oblique and unique take on the theme. You take the trophy this week and making me laugh out loud.

  4. Nice take on the word "door." LOL! I'm thankful that my "princess" is not so picky - we call her the chicken charmer (she really is). On the other hand, she'll only be 7 next month...

    Thank you for the next part of your fabulous kit!
