CTMH Emporium Mumps Memories

Yes - this is probably the most un-flattering picture I have ever taken!!  I was 8 years old and I had a REALLY bad case of the MUMPS!! Yikes!!  Luckily the Summer Olympics (L.A. - 1984) was on at the time - so I spent my hours in isolation happily watching the summer games!  (I love the Olympics - summer or winter, doesn't matter.  And I'm not an athlete (at all!).  I just love the patriotism - everyone cheering for their country - and the spirit of it all! I've had my TV on all day catching the first events of the Vancouver games!  Go Canada Go!) 

I love this week's simple Design Dollies sketch and thought it worked perfectly with my photo.

Materials Used (all Close to My Heart):


  1. Fantastic LO!!! even if it is of the mumps...! We need to savor every memory whatever the occasion. I just LOVE how you used this beautiful paper.

  2. Great layout, Carla! I remember the mumps, too. It was pretty awful, actually. You do look very swollen!


  3. love your layout. I'm glad you had a full recovery!

  4. Super cute take on the sketch! So sorry it was about being sick though :) Love it! Thanks for playin with us Dollies!

  5. Fabulists layout Carla!

    I love the Olympics too...glued to the TV!!
