Autumn Beauty

Hi everybody!
Hope you are all well?
Today I am here to share a layout I have done for this month's challenge over at The Creative Studio, which is the blog  for Canvas Corp Brands. You know who they are! They are the  home of 7 Gypsies and Tattered Angels.
I am a huge fan of everything they make. Great quality products!
Anybody that knows me, knows that I am obsessed with Tattered Angels glimmermists, paints, sprays, anything I can get messy with :)
So for this months challenge is an Autumn/Fall Mood board

For my layout I have gone really old school with my papers.
Some of you may remember them (please don't judge how I hoard paper lol)
7 Gypsies Avignon Collection, well what I had left after all these years ;)

For the background, I have used texture paste & Tattered Angels Glimmermist in
Pumpkin Spice (limited edition)
Olive Vine

For the corner scroll & title letters I have used chipboard coated in gesso,
then sprayed with Gold & Pumpkin Spice Glimmermists.

Scrap the Girls

Hi again. I'm back today to share another layout.
This is for the challenge over @ Scrap the Girls
This month's challenge is this sketch

And this is my take on the sketch
Hello Summer

I have used some yummy WOW honeycomb chipboard

I have used a mix of Simple Stories papers. A fun chipboard ferris wheel, also from WOW, that I have embossed in pewter. 
The full layout. I LOVE summer, its good for my bones :)
Well thanks for stopping by and I hope you enjoyed your visit.
Hope to see you again soon

Kraft+ Melon Challenge

Hi all
I am back today to share a layout I have completed for this months challenge over  @ Kraft +
The challenge this month is to use the this melon colour board

So, I finally got some newer photos printed. As you will see my kids are a bit older now (sob), Brianna is now 17!!! This was late last year as I'm still not up to much photography.
 So here is my layout.

 The Hello Friend tag pulls out.

Ummmm, I should explain that Blip, is my daughter lol. Its been one of her nicknames for a long time and the one that is printed on her senior jacket. Moe is our baby cat :)
Some yumminess, an assortment of My Minds Eye, October Afternoon and others.

And more close ups for the addicts :0

Thanks for stopping by.
Hopefully more to share soon

Anna's Craft Cupboard

Hi there!
This month there is a Colour Challenge  going on over @  Anna's Craft Cupboard.
This is the colour board

and this is my take on the challenge


I have used an assortment on this page. I started with using some gesso and stencils on the background. Followed by some mists and inks.

Pulled out the crackle glaze for the chipboard frame.
Some Bo Bunny, Prima & MME papers here.
Some pretties from Green Tara and D-lish Scraps.

I left my chipboard title bare (old Scrapware font, I'm still hoarding a few packs lol), as it gave the feel of the wood in the colour board.

Anyways that's all I have to share today, but thanks for stopping by

Lots of love

A Layout....... and some serious talk

Well hello there world! It has been awhile since I have been here.
I am writing here today for two reasons, the first is the most difficult  and I have been putting it off since it was first mentioned to me..... a few weeks ago lol.
Anyways so I'm here for therapy......yep therapy.  Apparently this is going to be one step towards my recovery (so they say :O)  so here goes it,
For the past couple of years I have been struggling, well with everything to be honest.  I have been struggling with my health for some time now,  and after 2 years of bullying and harassment at work. I basically ended up having a complete physical and mental breakdown.  I pulled away from life completely and have been struggling with it for the past 18 months, I don't leave the house other than to get groceries, or for dr's or specialist appointments.
 Its so hard to smile when some days your pain is so bad you can't brush your own hair  or even put socks on.
A few diagnosis's later, I am …
