another week gone!.............


well can't believe that another week is gone and the end of January is looming.....today was a day of running about and jobs at gramps's. He was brighter today..I definitely think that the weather helps....and I got to the cemetery to tidy up and change the flowers. .....Got some time this afternoon whilst Harry Potter was on to do this weeks challenge......Challenge was to incorporate:
* Display either Courage, Strength, Love or Dedication
* use Glitter in some way
* Use a full length strip or spiral of paper
* Stars
This photo is of my nan & gramps taken in 1941 the year before they married.......the quote which I love is currently displayed everywhere at work as it is the graphics for valentines day....thought that I would do a modern slant with an old picture....I'm quite pleased with the outcome as it is less structured than my usual style!!.....not staying on long as I'm hooked on CSI New York which is on shortly.
have a lovely weekend

ps...pop onto Sharon's blog she has a fab You Tube clip about man flu!!!! ha ha

over the rainbow...........



well this weekend in between housework!!!...i've finally completed some pages !!! yeh!! had lost my creativity recently...i did the weekly challenge on UKS which had to incorporate the following:
* Wizard of Oz theme
* use either Red / Green / Yellow
* Red Bling (ruby Red slippers)
* use Metal (Tin Man)
so here is my page.....Somewhere over the rainbow.....photo's taken at the Rainbow rooms and Top of the Rock in the Rockafellar centre New York.

January update.....



Wow .......where has the time gone
....apologies for not updating, but haven't been well and have been tied up with gramps as he's not been well either.......last weekend was my oldest's friends husbands 50th birthday, so stayed there the weekend. It was a really lovely weekend and the party was great....i have attached his card. Last Friday was also my friend Lucy's son's birthday...he was 3. I can't believe that it's 3 years since I held her hand as she had him...(where during labor she promptly threw up in my lovely Gucci handbag!)...other than that my January has been very quiet.....i am going to try and get some scrapping done tomorrow as I seem to have lost my motivation.
cupcakes & kisses

Happy New Year!


Just a quick post to wish everyone a Happy New Year, may it be filled with Health, Happiness, Love & Luck....

Looking back on the months gone by,
As a new year starts and an old one ends,
We contemplate what brought us joy,
And we think of our loved ones and our friends.
Recalling all the happy times,
Remembering how they enriched our lives
We reflect upon who really counts,
As the fresh and bright new year arrives.
And when Iponder those who do,I immediately think of you.
Thanks for being one of the reasons I'll have a Happy New Year!

for my very special friends...with love happy 2008...thankyou Tx
