Emma Jane emailed me this morning to let me know that the LO I put together for Ribbon Mad DT had been selected as the LO of the week over on UKScrappers....WOW...that sure bought a smile to my face after the gloom and doom thats been going on around here for the past couple of days.
Try as I might its so hard for me to "move on" sometimes.
Im missing Caroline so much....miss my Dad even more and as it approaches the date which would have been FIL's birthday I can sense that Rob is feeling a little low....I know he misses his chats with his Dad.
One of my jellie friends lost her FIL yesterday, Anna's father died the later part of last week and then it was posted on UKS that poor Lisa had passed away suddenly....its just too much sometimes :(
My Dad was forever quoting his "sayings"...some are far to explicit to be unleashed on the public...but one that springs to mind just lately is " Live your life girl as best you can, cus you is a long time dead"....how bloomin true...embrace life, live it but most of all enjoy.
The guys came home from school and were well impressed to see the LO on the home page of UKS, but not as impressed as I was to hear that Robbie had been given an A grade for his Art assignment! He made up a boxed canvas, painted it with acrylics and then added loads of snappies of us doing our thang.
The theme was family activities...the guys skatin & BMXin...Rob surfin and me scrappin. He spent hours working on it and it really did look fab. He even raided my stash and added blooms, rubons and unbeknown to me some Heidi Swapp Chipboard alphas....argh....hands off they are mine!!!
Silly Mom that I am forgot that he had to take the assignment in today and he had disappeared off to school with it before I had chance to take a snappy of it....never mind it will be back soon enough and then I can share.
Christmas is just around the corner and my buddie K has organised a Christmas Card Challenge to kick start us crafters into cardmaking for Christmas. Ive made up a card using various bits and pieces and then sent duplicate items onto someone else....she then works her magic and creates her card. Comparing the cards is such fun and its so inspiring seeing different designs made using the same items.
My design is very "different" so I am looking forward to seeing the creation she makes with this bundle of goodies making their way to her.
Gotta go pack....we are off to see Robbie at The Bowl tomorrow.
