a shrieking tale - Digi team Crafts and Me challenge - Anything goes

Good morning everyone...ok what happened to the weather while I was away when we left it was bright sunshine and we arrived home to a freezing cold Belfast airport and not so much as a sweater between us, standing in the drizzling rain waiting for our transport to our car...bbbbbrrrrrrr...I must tell you a little story before I forget and I'm sorry if it makes you shriek...sitting round the pool day 4 or 5 a Spanish couple arrive, very beautiful, tanned and the girl was stunning but had one of those awful thong bikinis on which kinda grossed me out a bit, if you wanna wear a thong wear it under your clothes not where everyone can see...but that's beside the point later on I was sitting on our balcony reading and glanced down to see her with her knees up and her head staring intently between her legs...what on earth is she doing I thought so grabbed my camera and zoomed in...you will never believe it but she was using a pair of tweezers and plucking her bikini line...yes plucking it, then when she had all those strays she plucked whatever hairs she could find on her legs...now really woman whichever way you want to remove hair is entirely up to you but please not in public...Phil couldn't stop laughing about it and saying women are mad, I did think of getting the tweezers out and starting on his legs but didn't fancy chasing him screaming down the street lol...right enough waffling my card for today is our the Digi teams new challenge over at Crafts and Me challenge which this week is Anything Goes with the added option of using kraft...I used one of the newest digis called Natalie, isn't she just stunning and fantastic to colour...I used distress inks as always to colour her and I glittered her a little...this amazing paper is from Jillibean Soup and is called Talk Soup...fab isn't it, I also added a bit of amazingly yummy glittered ribbon and a large Prima flower and finished with a few pink pearls..the amazing sketch is from Mojo Monday thank goodness for it as I'm finding it a bit hard to get back into a routine but should be ok in a few months or need a new holiday lol...I'm also entering this for the Papertake Weekly Bloom and Grow challenge too...I'm slowly catching up with blogging but it will take me a little but I will get round to everyone one of you fab peeps who left me a comment I promise...when you have time don't forget to pop on over to Crafts and Me challenge to have a look at the amazing Digi DT's creations...I'm off to catch up on some DT work and then its the dreaded cases which I haven't even touched yet...have a wonderful day everyone and don't be all dashing off to hunt for your tweezers lol
