Firstly, can I say a HUGE Thank You to all of you who take time to leave such lovely comments, they really are appreciated & help me keep things in perspective.
Secondly…WOO-HOO indeed!! Yesterday was such a good day!!!
In the morning I went along for my first weigh-in at Weight Watchers & to my joy had lost 4lbs!! :)
Then off I went to the nurse for my BP check-up & all three of the tests showed by Diastolic number (the bottom one!) in the eighties…so I’m now officially safe
to have a General Anaesthetic!! :))) I now have to wait to hear from Admissions as to when I can be fitted in for my surgery…even my shoulder seemed a little less painful yesterday..for a while anyway!!
As it’s the first of a shiny new month, I have some scrappiness to share. Firstly this months poster challenge over at ‘From Screen 2 Scrap’. The poster for your inspiration is ‘The Day After Tomorrow’.
The added criteria were…
1. to use only one photo
2. to keep it monochrome with a touch of blue
3. to use a white title
…& here’s what I did with it…
The photo is of Alex, taken when he & I had our walk around the village on that wonderful snowy Sunday at the beginning of last month. What doesn’t really show up in this LO photo is that each snowflake & stamped sparkle is glittered! But hey, you get the idea!!
I did find this poster more challenging than some…but what would you do with it? We’d love to have you play along with us this month…pop over to ‘From Screen To Scrap’ & join in!!!
It’s also time for another LO for the lovely Dawn’s ‘Chinese Whispers’ & this month Jacky’s LO for me to lift looked like this…>>>
& this is my ‘lift’…
Again, my muses! This time enjoying the giant inflatable slide at last years ‘Beds County Show’. I had fun gluing down all that twine into swirly patterns…I made a template first to pencil onto the page & then glued as I went along…I’m pleased with how that turned out!
I do hope everyone gets to enjoy a bit of sunshine this weekend & I’ll leave you with something else that made me smile yesterday…
Thanks for stopping by & come back soon! :)
