scraplifting Chloe...


Hi everyone. 
Over at Rainbow Splendour for the month of May it was Scraplift the  Design team month.
and well I started out with good in tensions but alas only managed to get 1 done.....
and that was one of the boss lady's layouts...
I chose this one......

And this is how mine ended up.. 
Yep not quite really alike but you can see some similarities.....

"these 2"
{i had to take a second pic of the layout at a different time of day. hence the different shades.. sorry}
and then for some close ups.....
 a Scrapmatts florish..yes embossed.... an music envelope that Chloe gave me ages ago..... 
 and of course some Rainbow Splendour goodness.. 
the Polaroid frame and some super cool leaves.......
 the Photo.. one of my all time favourites..yes they are a couple years old now but i still love them...
the Scrapmatts lamp..and LOOK its a flower...

thanks for visiting.. hope you have a happy day......

Serenitys Smile...

I started this one a while ago and I've only just got back around to finishing it the other week.. 
after a few minor alterations due to a little miss Ivy drawing on parts... including one of the photos... 
this is the end result and i must admit i'm pretty happy with it.

"Smile"
it seems a little dark on her. sorry if it seems that way to you..
and the obligatory close ups....
 Scrapmatts Arrow with some embossing powder.. yep still playing with it......

this one is a personal favourite and i've been waiting to use it.. you know how it is..

and then the last close up is with the denim flower from Rainbow Splendour.. 
speaking of rainbow splendour don't forget to run over to their blog and have a look at the scraplift pages that Chloe is doing at the moment and have a little go while you are there......


and then i just need to get some stuff off of my chest.......

recently some stuff has been happening..... Family despute resolution, Centerlink cutting me off and struggling financially, John moving in {that one is a good thing}, thinking of changing work, kids, cars breaking down.... all of it has gotten to me, i keep doing good things to and for people [even random strangers] and the good karma just hasnt been finding its way back to me. i've been struggling to find my usual positive in every day. i've been stressed to the point that i've needed the last day and a half off of work to catch up on some sleep and to try and work things out in my head... its not me and i dont like it. i want that positiveness back. so i'm taking the drastic step of possibly leaving work at amart where i've been for almost 9 years {excluding a little time off with kids} to start an apprenticeship with John as a painter AND at the same time doing a certificate IV in accounting so i can look after the businesses books.. drastic yes. scary HELL yes.. but i'm almost to the point where i can't just keep going. i need to take a leap. i know i have fantastic family support and more than positive that i'd be able to get retail work again should things happen to fall on their arse. i'm in love with John that i know, and the kids are liking him even though he is helping me out with the rigors of kids, he's not letting them get away with what they are used to and its so SO good to have that back up happening. so Im JUMPING In.....
thanks for listening.. you know me sometimes i've just got to get what is in my head out. so thanks. and hopefully the me that i want to be will start to return......

have a happy friday.... love you.
