6 down......too many to go

Well I passed my subjects in semester 2.....yay me

However i was a bit disappointed with my marks.......2 credits and a pass.

Maybe I just have too much of a high expectation of myself - i dunno. Maybe if i was in a more ideal situation when it came to study I would do better - never said I was smart though - he he. Just means I have to be a bit more selfish next time { My good nature gets me nowhere}

Thank you to everyone who supported me throughout the semester - I couldn't do it without you - mwah

I am not sure whether this page needs anything know when you get the feeling that something is missing?

I did this challenge for The Boxx fortnightly challenge set by Leanne Jago - use 2 photos, fabric/tulle, Paint and a Chippy and Challenge Heaven November word challenge which was to use the word "Remember" and the criteria was to distress.
Here is my little cluster in the corner up close -

Here is my journalling { FYI I am still struggling with my handwriting}

I just thought I would throw in a pic of the ridiculous photos close up - I was 14 years old - he he

Oh to be young again :(

Laughter is the best therapy

I don't know how true it is for all you other parents out there but for me it doesn't matter how loud it is children's laughter it will always lift your spirit.
That was my inspiration for this page.
One of the Scrap Apple challenges was to do a layout on what sort of therapy works the best for for me it's obviously LAUGHTER

You can get these super dooper coolio Mr Men Bottle Tops from Lil Red Rocket

I funkied { Is that even a word?} up this tree sticker to give it a bit more dimension

And lucky last is my journalling

Thanks for taking the time to look.....

This page ticked 3 boxes for me:

1. Scrap Apples Challenge - To use the senses

2. The talented Julie Winks designed this sketch when she was Featured Member on The Boxx

3. The first Inspiration challenge at Get Picky - I drew my inspiration from the colours

Here is the journalling up close - if you knew my husband well you would know how fussy he is when it comes to safety { Man, if he knew I Whipper Snipped the lawn with thongs on and no safety glasses I would be in big trouble }

You can pick up this Super Dooper Coolio Kite at Clouds and More

And last but not least some Paper Strings I made - obviously not hard to do

For those of you who know me well you will realise the inspiration behind this page........lets see if you can guess????

This layout was a challenge from the scrap apples.....create a layout with a song title or verse. Can you guess where my verse comes from??????

Here's all the goodies on my page - thanks to all my lovely friends who knew i would put these bits and pieces to good use.....have you worked it out yet??????

Last but not least here is my journalling - I just wanted to reflect and relate to the craziness in my life........if you haven't worked it out by now you have lived a sheltered life...he he

It's just a jump to the left...........and then a step to the right.............put your hands on your hips.............and bring your knees in tight..........and its a pelvic thrust...........that really drives you insane

Are you singing and dancing yet?
