SIC132 9/3/12 Counting, 1 2 3
 


I have just noticed lately that I have an obsession with counting. Every Sunday at church, I count the number of choir members. I don't leave it at that; I even count how many women and how many men. Why, I do not know! I found I was not alone in this last Sunday, as I heard the lady in back of me lean over and tell her husband that there were 20 men in the choir this week! I had to giggle! Okay, it is not only in church. I count the cars that the neighbors directly accross from us park in their drive way( they do not park any in their garage, it is too full ) in front of their house, in front of ours, and in front of neightbors either side of us, every morning when I get up, and every evening before I go to bed. The number varries between 5 and 9. I don't know why I do this. I count the pairs of undies as I put them in the wash, again as I put them in the dryer, and then when I fold them. I don't know when I began this obsession. I could go on and on telling you the things I count. Does anyone know; is there a name for this obsession? LOL

And BTW 46 years ago 9/3/66 we were married. So we are still counting!!!

Today, I will count what is on your page!

Your challenge:
Is to use the following on your page
1 decorative paper
2 similar embellishments (Ex.- I used two buttons, but different colors.)
3 photos


Here are two pages I did for this challenge

Here is the Counting Gallery

I look forward to your pages.

As always, they can be paper, digi or hybrid!!! Please remember to add
SIC132 and sbc12sep (or whatever month you do this challenge in, because you can do this challenge anytime you want. There is no time limit!) to your keywords so we find your pages.
And please post a link in this thread, so we know you did one for this challenge.

I hope you have a wonderful Labor Day!

:)
Sharon

You're too funny, Sharon. I often count my steps when walking, and when I'm lying on the table in the doctor's office, I count the ceiling tiles. Oh, I count the number of lights on the back of the car in front of me, like when they're in a row on the trunk or such. So, I guess I've got that little OCD thing too. Don't know if they have a special name for it! :wink:

I like this challenge and hope to play this week!

Yup
 
I'm giggling at your challenge as well because I too find myself counting ... but it's usually counting to "10" or "100" at work when I find something ridiculous and lately it just seems every day there is something that's just crazy....hahaha!

Thanks for another fun Challenge Sharon! I hope to get my page done this weekend ....

Nice and easy challenge Sharon. I think the only thing I count on a constant basis is the number of steps to my upstairs (just so coming down carrying a clothes basket I can count since I can't see the landing :))

I, too, seem to count things for no reason! And I've certainly done the stair thing Terry!

It might be a while before I get to any challenges. I have a big auction/raffle to get done by next weekend for my dance club and will be trying to keep my head above water getting that under control.
