So I LOVE that darn donkey from OA because I remember playing it when I was very little. I don't know how or for what to use it. But I REALLY just want to use it. I can't find a freaking photo that merits the donkey. Maybe because I'm trying not to be themed either.
I also have crazy donkey anecdotes through out my life where live and donkeys things end up appearing, should I scrap that?
Oh no! This is actually becoming yet another donkey situation!!!

Why not use a photo from when you were little and document your memories using the donkey as the primary embellishment?

You could call the page 'that darned donkey...'

Or you can do a layout where you pinned the tail on something:

"Pinning the tail on my honey" or "I pinned the tail on these shoes/this pocketbook/this dress". Then talk about how you got the perfect one of something. I hope that makes sense.

I love it too. I would just use it on a LO with an old picture of myself, if I couldn't find a birthday pic. Good luck, its really so cute.

I fell in love with the OA card of a kitty cat in a little boater hat saying to a turtle, "I'm a kitty, who are you?" from one of their older lines and ended making a framed wall hanging from it. It is right next to my scrap table and I see it all the time! Maybe you can do something like that with it?

What about scrapping about the feelings the donkey brings about? Childhood memories, etc?

I love this! I know my sweet husband will give me that opportunity !!

Anyway, I love that little donkey because in the late sixties , early seventies , that's what "pin the tail on the donkey" looked like. I'm planning to go on a scavenger hunt at my parents' house for pictures of my little girl birthdays so I can use that little donkey.

I have the pin-the-tail on the donkey that we played when I was a little girl. Looks exactly like the OA one. It even has all the tails still, but I just can't bring myself to let the kids play it at their parties.

@ nikomoon: so apparently you're not the "surprise " child of a family of four . Not very many pictures of me . I could probably get them on a double page spread

Now I got my OA donkey too!
I was thinking of using the donkey (and Cakewalk) for scrapping some pics from my childhood. We used to play that game at pre-school, when ever we had parties to celebrate someone's birthday or so. It brings back memories from that time and, amazingly enough, I actually have a bunch of photos from pre-school.
