Another layout completed

I hope everyone is having a good week, we're almost over the hump!

Daniel comes home tonight and I just can't wait for him to be here to help me with Abbey. The last couple of days she has turned into a pre-teen little...hhmmm, what's the word I'm looking for....PERFORMER!! That's the word. She is trying to compete with me for "master of the house" status and it's just not making me happy at all! I am trying to be as calm as I can about it and just explain to her that she is the child and I am the Mum and as soft as Daniel is with her there are times when I just need his male voice to blast her back into reality because mine sure isn't doing it right now! Fingers crossed she gets over this stage very quickly!!

So...to try and calm myself last night I did a little scrapping but I wanted to watch Packed to the Rafters at the same time so decided that rather than dragging all of my scrap stuff downstairs I would just take a few things across the hall to my bedroom and scrap on the floor in there and watch TV....for anyone thinking they will give this a try DON'T!! I ended up packing it up and putting the layout aside until I could figure out how to fix it...it was terrible! I ended up pulling it apart, tearing the paper as I did that, then I had to distress things with ink and make it look like it was meant to be like that, then chop here and chop there and finally came up with something that I am now quite happy with. I can't take any of the credit for the buttons and pearls cluster at all....I got that from page 99 of the current creative paper magazine - layout by Bridgette Hatton. So...here is my creation....
I'm hoping to get a little more done tonight after Abbey is in bed.

Just before I go, I want to say thank you to all those people leaving me comments on my blog, it's so nice to know that people are popping in for a look around, thanks for your lovely comments because it gives me a chance to stop in at your blog and peek around too, I love it!

Until next time,
Shell xx
