I been playing

It suddenly occurred to me last night that when I got my replacement lappy I hadnt backed up my old Photoshop elements and filters grrrrrrrr So today was spent tracking these down - although there is an old colour tint one that I cant find for the life of me....typical!


Decided to have a play with the fairy brushes as there are some fab ones on Deviantart.

HS:MS Show off Sunday

This was taken a few years ago at Oia in Santorini - one of the top ten places in the world for the best sunsets...it was truly stunning. People arrive really early there for the sunsets and it gets very busy so finding a good spot is difficult but definitely well worth it.

What a cutesie!!!



I had been hounding Mum to drag out all the baby photos and gave up in the end and went for a hunt myself and found them - it was so lovely going through them all that I thought Id show you how cute I was whilst young.....not sure what happened after that LOL

The top pic is my ultrasound scan - Queen Charlottes one of the first to start offering ultrasounds (on a monthly basis too) but for the life of me I cant figure it out, even when Mums explained it LOL





Worlds best grafitti!




These creased me up so I just had to share LOL

HS:MS SPS

Well its self portrait saturday and Im quite an expert in the art of self portraits as the cats havent yet learnt how to take pics and I have no-one else to do it *1,2,3 aaaaaaah*
This one was taken back in the summer last year - you really dont want to see one from today as Im sat in my PJs with 2 huge spots LMAO scary stuff!!!

My thoughts & prayers are with California

In this time of need I want to dedicate this post to all of those suffering on the west coast due to the dreadful fires. I have many friends and clients there and so my thoughts are with everyone.

I feel your pain
and long to touch the hurt
and make it melt away.
Yes, I know
that I can’t really see
the breadth
and depth
of this dark valley you’re in.
I can’t truly know
just how sharp the knife is
in your soul -
for it is you in its path,
not me.
But I have known other valleys
and in my heart
still bear knife-wound scars.
Even so,I would walk your road
and take your pain
if I could
I cannot.
And yet, perhaps
in some way
I can be a hand to hold
in the darkness;
in some way, try to blunt
the sharpness of pain.
But if not –
it may help a little
just to know I care.

HS:MS Indigo

I was always the child that would never do as I was told and am pretty much the same in adulthood so after much contemplation I decided to take a completely different stance on todays HS:MS challenge (well actually I couldnt find anything indigo in my space LMAO)

The Chakra meaning of Indigo is:

A mix of blue and violet, it is the color of knowledge. It is the color of dignity and Intuition
Some signs that the Brow Chakra is out of balance are:
Jumping to conclusions
Confusion
Indecision
Inability to see the bigger picture in life situations
Too much INDIGO and our ego can get the better of us, thinking we are spiritually above the more "common" folk.
Too little INDIGO, and we can become oversensitive, fearful, and undisciplined, withdrawing into the fantasies of romantic novels and wishful thinking.


This photo was taken at my cousins wedding when I had just split from my fiancee - it was a challenging day for me as I had just cancelled all my wedding details and was oversensitive through the whole ceremony. I was certainly lacking in indigo that day!

HS:MS

Decided to join in all the fun on Her Space:My Space as it will encourage me to take pics more often LOL

Today was a simple one though - best pic. I love this one to bits...it was taken at 8am as we arrived in Grand Cayman - taken into the sun it shows a fab silhouette of a Carnival ship and caused the dark, night time, effect. I like to break the rules of photography LOL

Wouldnt you love to send one!

These hate mail cards are truly superb - I can think of a few I'd love to send especially after watching the video LMAO
