Apart from cake-eating and wine-drinking, are there any other rituals you and your friends act out over and over again when you get together?
A ritual such as ... say ... something like ... putting things on your head while someone takes a photo ...? No?
Just us then?
Personally, I blame HannahBanana whose personal fondness for head adornments seems to have infected us all:
In this instance I'm wearing the ends of a reel of ribbon in the style of Minnie Mouse:
And here I am again rather fetchingly modelling fish-shaped chipboard door hangers:
- bunny ears;
- a cat's eye mask;
- a ribbon wreath;
- a polystyrene wreath;
- a paper tea-cup;
- a large fake flower;
- an apron;
- a large Halloween bat decoration;
- an inflatable pumpkin;
- a bicycle light;
- a pop-up bin ...and ...
But, from that trawl through my albums I've come to realise that there's another sub-class of ritual going on too ... it's not just a simple case of putting things on our heads ...
No... it's other body parts too. There are just as many photos of us with things:
- over our eyes;
- in our eyes - like monocles;
- hanging from ears;
- over our mouths;
- over our top lips - like a moustache and over ...well, let's just call them 'other' body parts ... and leave it at that shall we?
I tweaked my page elements to fit with one of Shimelle's 'National Scrapbooking Day challenges. Challenge 2 was to create a triangle of features - which I did by repeating snippets of colour 3 times across the page.
