Things have been quite crazy for me over the last few months - quite a few really sad things have happened and work has been very busy, and in the last week or so I've felt like everything is getting on top of me. Because we shouldn't always scrap the happy stuff, I thought I'd try and cheer myself out of my woes by creating a layout reminding me that it isn't always so bad!
The photo of me was taken by SJ who takes spectacular photos and has made my eyes look blue and sparkly which in real life they are not. I was really happy when the photo was taken, at a retreat with friends and scrapping all weekend. So looking at the photo reminds me of that.
The papers I used were Scenic Route and Scrapworks - I've also used a multitude of different stamps on there from my collection to create the embellishments. A bit of bubble wrap paint stamping also thrown in for good measure. I love that ribbon printed to look like a tape measure too - I found it in my stash, I think it came with a kit.
It has been snowing here for the last hour and we have quite a blanket covering the ground. Not enough for another snow day, but it does look pretty. Just hoping the drive to work isn't too treacherous in the morning!
