I like to collect quotes. Some of them are funny, some are cocky and some of them are quite serious. Most of them are special to me, even though you can’t take all of them seriously. I thought I should make a little mini with some of my favourites. So here is my little birdcage album…
I have cut out the birdcage with grungeboard and painted it with Crackle Paint. The entire album has been made with Maja Design Vintage Summer Basics papers (6×6 pad).
I’ve kept the first page simple and you can’t read the text until you lift the birdcage.
My first quote..
“The greatest pleasure in life is doing what people say you can not do.”
That quote is more or less my life mission. My parents are very good at telling me what I can’t do, so as a result they got a rebellious girl…
“It is true that money doesn’t buy happiness, but does buy chocolate which is kinda the same thing.”
Those of you who loves chocolate understands. Those who don’t. Take a look at the next quote.
“Love thy neighbour but don’t get caught”
I think that one is too funny to miss, so of course it’s in my book.
“You miss 100% of the shots you never take”
Been there, done that. No more.
“If you want the best seat in the house, move the cat”
That’s what cat owners deals with every day…
“Of course I don’t look busy, I did it right the first time”
Cocky and fun!
“Be a girl with a mind, a woman with an attitude and a lady with class”
My second mission. I guess the first and second goes well, it’s the last part I’m having trouble with. He he.
“Inside there is a thin woman trying to get out… I can usually keep the bitch quiet with chocolate”
“My cat is not spoiled, I’m just well-trained”
There is no question who’s in charge in our house.
“A person that really loves you will never let you go. No matter how hard the situation is.”
“If being sexy is a crime-arrest me”
“It always annoys somebody” as my sister always says…
“I can only please one person per day… Today’s not your day and tomorrow doesn’t look good either”
That’s a thing one of my friends could say. I just love this quote.
“The prettiest smiles hides the deepest secrets. The prettiest eyes have cried the most tears and the kindest hearts have felt the most pain.”
I guess it speaks for itself… Beautiful and true.
“We had to get rid of the kids, the cat was allergic”
As a childless 35 year old I’ve had it with all stupid and nosy questions. I’ve heard them all. Over and over again. Sometimes I would just love to answer something like this… But in the end I’m just standing there and smile stupidly. Again.
“Anything that makes you giggle, smile or laugh. Buy it or marry it.”
Happy, funny and true.
“Try harder, I’m worth it.”
I guess we’ve all been there at some point…
