Don't Ask Me How I Know posted Jun 3, 2006
by koala1966


I’ve thought about making this album for a long time, ever since I first heard the song “Don’t Ask Me How I Know” by Bobby Pinson (a country song). I know we all have our share of our regrets in life, I certainly have mine. But I also know I’ve become a better person for the mistakes I’ve made. When I saw this paper pack, with the paper “Life Happens”, I knew that I’d found the perfect paper to use in this album. I used a simple page design so I could put this together in one day. I wanted to use my own handwriting since the subject is so personal, and the doodle rubons I have seemed to fit in with that too. I created a modified version of the song to fit my book, the lyrics are spread across the layouts.

Supplies:
Paper – Provo Craft 8X8 slab (Christina Cole)
Brads – Karen Foster (antique macaroni, antique zig zag, antique ric rac), American Crafts (premium brads - orange, blue, pink, brown), Queen & Co (big brads - green, pink, American Traditional Designs (brights lil’ brads)
Rubons – Polar Bear Express (doodle-rub dots), Maisy Mo Artsy Doodles (hearts, stars, arrows), My Minds Eye (distressed stitches)
Mixed Media stickers – American Traditional Designs (Bohemian Chic)
Epoxy stickers – Walmart (Girls Rule postage stamps)
Letter stickers – American Crafts (Simply Chic, Sixth Ave, Sarah Script) Doodlebug (Party Mix, teeny tags), Sarah Bond (tiny epoxy letters/numbers)
Pens – Galaxy markers, Marvy Uchida, Pentel
Eyelets – Provo Craft
Coluzzle tag template
Black ink

Journaling (my modified version of song lyrics for “Don’t Ask Me How I Know”:
Don’t steal your sister’s boyfriend just cause you can
Don’t walk away from your best friend or treat him second hand
Don’t take earrings from a store because you want more than one pair
Don’t look someone in they eyes and say the lie “I just don’t care”

Put family first
Stand firm in faith
Sometimes it hurts
But it’s worth the pain
Stay true to yourself
Walk that straight line
Give God what’s his
Give of your time

Don’t ask me how I know

Don’t throw away your dreams halfway there to see them thru
Don’t bust your buddy’s chops when you know her word is true
Don’t neglect your sisters at those crucial times in their lives
Don’t rush off the phone when your mama calls, for her you can make the time
You oughta make that drive to say goodbye to your grandma before she goes

Don’t ask me how I know

Sell your truck while it’s still running
Save the Jesus off the dash
Say a prayer when you feel like cussing
Save your money; pay with cash
Forget your pride; buy the roses
If you’re sorry, tell him so
Don’t drink the water in Mexico

Don’t ask me how I know (I just know)
