Just a quick posting to let everyone know Gramps is still fighting although they had sedated him this morning to help him sleep.
I made the biggest mistake last night of going through all my LO's I had done over the past few years - and for those that know me, Gramps is certainly a character!!! However it made me very sad to see pictures of such an incredible man and to think of how he is at the moment. I want my real Gramps back x
Scrapbooking is so precious in times like this - to be able to read through the journalling and the titles you have chosen is so precious, something that a simple photo just cant achieve. Ive never been a huge journaler, more a commenter, and a lesson Im learning here is to journal more, to put down every ounce of feeling as once that feeling has gone from your mind it can never be recaptured with the exact same thoughts. Journal the silly things, the big and little things and the things you may think are unimportant at the time.
Whatever you are thinking or feeling put it in writing. Every minute of what happened put it in writing because the future happiness it will give you is irreplaceable x

Your soul is painted the color orange, which embodies the characteristics of balance, heat, enthusiasm, flamboyance, playfulness, aggression, over-emotion, danger, desire, strengthens the ability to concentrate, attraction, adaptability, and stimulation. Orange falls under the element of Fire, and symbolizes glory and fruits of the earth.

Im not a really a pressie girl as I tend to get pennies most years but I did get this year from Mum some adorable Chanel earrings - well I knew they were coming as I had to order them months ago hahahaha
I also had a gorgeous Lush Cosmetics bath bomb kit from my Aunty Christine and have to confess that was opened on Saturday as I wanted pamper time but there are still 2 bombs left!!!
Tonight is belly dancing night and yes I am still going even though its my birthday - even if I didnt want to I have to as I missed last week due to my bad leg.
Off now to eat lots of cakes and spoil myself rotten LOL

Using the JB papers I decided to do a LO inspired by my birthday next week - I always end up feeling a bit down this time of year but it gave me encouragement to document what I can be proud of.
Karen Russell papers with a Narratives transparency and Heidi Swapp birdie - the LO says it all!
Just a simple one of me and Pix when I was feeling poorly - Pix never sleeps with me and isnt a lap cat so this was one big occasion!
And finally Gramps who I adore - kept it simple due to the journalling which reads:
"I love looking at the photos I have of you Gramps as they really make me smile.You bought me up as one of your own children and you will always be a father to me - you are always kind, caring and looking out for me....I dont think I will ever stop being your little girl! I have so many wonderful and silly memories of you, always acting the fool and doing anything to make people laugh! Your true grit is amazing - you are always up dancing like there is no tomorrow (how you do it I dont know as Im always tired before you!), the determination is breath taking and a delight to see. All I can hope is that I have half of what you have when I get to your age (or if I do!). Gramps, Dad, words cannot express."

My fav photo and loved scrapping this one - I wanted to try and keep it as simple as possible but Im not very good at that LOL
Dont you just love Elsie! These papers and chipboard buttons are full of inspiration - I cant wait for further designs!
This was actually the first page I started with and actually struggled with it so put it away and got it back out towards the end - Im still not 100% happy with it but couldnt figure out what it needed without overdoing it :-(
I even took 2 Jenni Bowlin kits with me and forced myself to use them - not because I dont love them but just because they normally just sit there being drooled over LOL I love this LO as I wanted to use a lot of pics and think it turned out really well - it takes a while to get used to using multiple photos but now Im addicted!!!
