Dressing up

Prompted by a thread on UKS i was thinking today about dressing up, i know some people absolutley loath it but i have to say i LOVE it, it is so much fun...over the years working in the soft play centre i had to dress up as a weird and wonderful array of things from a devil to an elephant and once an alien! Never am i embarrassed to go out in full dressed up galore, it is great fun and for all those prudes out there i say get those witches hats out and make a stand and make fools of yourself! you only live once afterall :D

Critical Scrappers

Over the years i have been scrapping i have come to notice that we as scrappers can be very very critical of our own work, i often browse other peoples galleries and adore the work they do but most of the time look at mine and think what a load of tosh!!! Well after getting myself into a little bit of photography i have started to like my pages more, the better the photo the better the page i think, although that is merely personal opinion! In my last post i showed you a photo of my gorgeous nephew Jamie, I had been sitting looking at this for days and i loved it so on sunday i sat for 4 hours playing with paper and ended up with a page that i personally think is one of my best pages. Some of the UKS girls have even said it is my best ever page!!! so here it is......i have learned from this that your work is always good, and not to be to critical of yourself because if you are you will never be happy and appreciative of your own work :) happy scrapping

Happiness and Sadness

Well this week has been a complete and utter roller coaster of emotions.....the begining of the week saw the family have a leaving party for my uncle Tony and cousin Chris who where over visiting the family from Australia for the firt time in 18 years, we had a great time and got a family photo which is a great scrapping oportunity :D On the sad side we have the news on tuesday morning that my gran had passed away in her sleep, she has had a long battle with cancer, after being diagnose with lung cancer three years ago she went into remission but in june the cancer came back, in july my parents where called to say she was in hospital and they thought she had broken her back, my parents went to spain to be with her (thats where she lived) After a week they where told that the cancer had spread to her stomach causing a compression on her spine which had paralysed her, she was flown back to the UK and put in a hospice, after a horrible few months of pain and heartache she passed away in her sleep. RIP xx

Scrapping myself..

With the arrival of the wonderful classes in this weeks UkScrappers Summer Cyber Crop i decided that for a change i should scrap a picture of myself, and my lord am i pleased with the results, i mean i relaly love the page. it isnt very often that i admire my own work but i am very happy with this :) I do wonder if i should scrap more about myself for the future when i look back or for when i am not here anymore for my family to look back on and get to know me through my work.....does that sound odd?? lol
