these twirly twiggy thingy bobs was actually introducted to me by Geli.. and guess where they are from...$2 cheapy shop.. yay....
the swirly big fun journalling...
oh and have a look at the flowers on the frame.. they are actually more off cuts that we got at the brissy expo.. i just covered them in glitter.. {yeah man its back}.. and added them over the flower on the frame ..just to give it alittle something extra.
showing the height.. you know i love alittle height in my layouts...
and AT LAST... yep at last i have finished all 4 angels.. the last 2 have been sitting on my desk being moved around for the last few days coz i.. well... just wanted to scrap..lol.....

Your Cloud - Tori Amos



my bff Tracey found this song for me...
oh and here are the words..

"Your Cloud"

where the river cross
crosses the lake
where the words
jump off my pen
and into your pages
do you think
just like that
you can divide
this you as yours
me as mine to
before we were us
if the rain has to separate
from itself
does it say "pick out your cloud?"
pick out your cloud
if there is
a horizontal line
that runs from the map
off your body
straight through the land
shooting up
right through my heart
will this horizontal line
when asked
know how to find
where you end
where i begin
"pick out your cloud"
how light can play
and form a ring of rain
that can change bows into arrows
(i found a thrill)
who we were isn't lost
before we were us
indigo in his own
blue always knew this
if the rain
has to separate
from itself
does it say pick out your cloud

so thats about it for me today.. am part way through a page..yay.. Glitter is making a come back....

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.
