by golly miss molly.. two..

you know how it is sometimes.. when things just dont go well... right... i had a day with Tarj on Thursday.. mainly thurs arvo and night.. he was Yelling, kicking, hitting and screaming at me HEAPS>. .. and for those who know Tarj will know how uncharacteristic these things are.. andyho.. that night when i went to put him in bed he started again over which book to read..so having had enought.. just walked out and said.. nope no books tonight.. and boy oh boy this started it again.. it got the stage that my dad came in and told me to go and sit in the lounge and proceeded to have a chat to Tarj about not speaking or acting that way towards his mum.. and well.. you have to know the full story now.. later that night he had a Tarj dream {hasnt had one for MONTHS}.. he is asleep but dreaming and then starts screaming and thrashing around . all i can do is sit there and try and talk him through it...and then after hes calmed alittle i try and wake him so he knows that its just a dream.. anyho this happend a couple of times and in the end i put him in my bed with me to sleep.. and he did right through till the morning.. and then when he woke, couldnt remember a thing and was as happy as larry.. so that got me to thinking that i really wonder what goes on in his brain sometimes.. and i created this...
"Wonder What?"
Photobucket the journalling.. for the circle bit i found these off cuts when i discovered SCRAPMATTS at the Brissy expo.. and i love them....together with a masking tape background a perfect journalling block.

and the cluster,, more scrapmatts... {oh have a look here scrapmatts new ning site}
oh yeah.. and the wire.. liking wire at the mo... and for the scrapmatts.. i got the raw chippy and coloured it in with zig pen and then covered it all in dimensional magic for that shinny appearance.
and lastly some height detail.. love layers..
oh did you notice the robot punch that i got for my bday.. just hadnt used it yet..so funky.

and now for a reflective piece...

Photobucket a local challenge group was to do a layout using circles.. all embellies and photos had to be circles.. {ps..notice there arent any embellies,, just journalling, photos and pp}..

these photos are of the wall of layouts from Roctreat just cut them randomly into different sizes and stitched around them..coolio.
and the journalling....

okay ..

so thats about it.. i have created 2 layouts on friday. worked today.. and about .. well soon ish go to bed so i can work again tomorrow..yay for me..lol.

By golly indeed! Your post is so timely, my DS has just had a moment and a half. Mind you he has had them all day. No toys left in his room and he has finally stopped screaming at me. Sigh... kids sometimes they definitely test you.

Must break your heart when you hear him having a bad dream like that though :(.

Love these layouts Leanne!!

Karen Shady said...

sounds like an amazing weekend Leanne... As a Mum of a 2 yo, I sooo hear you about the tantrums :) the dream he had sounds like "night terrors" My DD used to have them, and my 5yo has then very occasionally..... they are just awful aent they, and theres really nothing you can do.... hopefully he will just outgrow them soon.... xx

awww I know how you feel Leanne I have a sleepwalker and it scares the living daylights out of you when they do stuff like that in the middle of the night, hope he settles soon....and yep so was the best weekend ever!!! You nearly made me cry with that layout Miss J!! Do we really have to wait another whole year before we do it again :O xoxo

These are fabbo. That robot punch is cool. I thought you had handcut paper. Love the dominoes too. I agree, probably night terrors. None of mine have had them thank goodness. The cirlces look fab and how good does it look without embellies?? Loved reading the journalling. What an unreal weekend. Wish you lived closer so I could attend next year!!

Jules said...
