Missing: Peace of Mind

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!


  1. love this LO, just the sort of thing I was thinking about doing next - get it all of my chest! And snow? Lucky u, send some my way please...

  2. Hey you :) I had a few months like that last year's funny how through it all we keep scrapping! Paper therapy is prettier and cheaper than other kinds too. Lovely LO - the greens are beautiful. You take care ... the mind'll be back before you know it xxx

  3. Beautiful LO and a beautiful photo too.

  5. I think a lack of peace of mind is an occupational hazard :(
    Love your scrap room mess BTW, and very jealous!

  6. Hi, such a great LO, i never used to like greens, but it's work like this that has converted me. :)
