Ive kept this page plain so not to take away from the printed accetate used. I used black paper as background so the writting on the accetate can be seen. It was not the easiest of pages to photograph either but I think I have managed ok.
Oh well, time to go and get organised for work. I still have a bath to have and eat my tea before leaving at 6pm. Thank goodness Im only working 2 nights. Take care all and I will catch up with you soon.

Hi Guys, here is the results of my crafting afternoon. Smile, is of course an old school photo of me aged 13. This brings back memories as I really was never a girlie girl though my choice of colours might contradict that statement. I was always one of the lads and liked to play football and stuff. I never had my tie done up to my neck I hated the chocked feeling. Im rather pleased with the results of this, particularly as the photo is a copy of a scanned smaller picture. My page is 8x8 and the first of a new project Ive got on the go. Im going to put all the school photos of my family in an 8x8 album including my dad and mum. It should be an interesting project.
This is my answer no. 6 It is done using much of my own writing even though I dont think my writting ever looks that good. Its basic message is that if we go back in an effort to change our lifes would it make ours or those we have touched any better? What makes us who we are is our lessons learnt from our experiences so we change those experiences and we become different people. Therefore although I think there are things I would like to have done differently if I had I may not have found myself where I am today. Its not always the best life I have but it is my life and I choose who I have in it and share it with. Besides how could I know Im experiencing the feelings of joy and excitement and all the other good feelings if I was unaware of what the bad feelings were? Doesnt a small gesture from our freinds make us feel so much better when we are feeling low? Would we experience the same depth of feeling if we were feeling happy? hmmm all interesting questions dont you think? This post is getting a little deep so perhaps I should round it off there and let your imagination run away a little.
Take care folks speak real soon

Good morning folks, Im not long home from a night shift. Im feeling pretty tired but I thought Id stay up just a little longer this morning to try to help me sleep longer today. I dont normally sleep too well during the day when Im on nightshift so I find Im ultra tired at work by the end of my week :( This week Im lucky I have 2 nights to work then off 3 days then another 2 nights to work. As I dont cope with the lack of sleep too well this is probably better for me.
The picture at the side is my latest creation, I needed somewhere for my pens so I thought Id take an empty jam jar (washed of course lol) and I added a ribbon at the top and made another label for it using blue and pink thin card. The letters and flower prints were done using the pens to ink the stamps. The letter stamps I had bought in hobbycraft months ago, but the flowers were a freebie in a craft magazine (sorry cant remember which one) It didnt take too long and now I have my pens on hand when I need them rather than diggin into the basket, which is oddly in the background, to find them. I have a tendency to use the basket to shove little bits and bobs into so I dont loose them when working on a project on my desk.
Right folks as much as I would love to stay and chat for ages, I guess I should be winding down to allow myself to sleep. Oh I hope I sleep well so Im ready for tonight. Last night I forgot to take my glasses so ended up suffering for it (I get headaches if I dont wear my glasses when I need to) So note to self, I must remember my glasses tonight.
Sparkles and bubbles to all. Thanks for taking the time to visit and read my post.
