Thank you and Sunday Stamper: Blue

Firstly, THANKYOU for your lovely comments they meant a lot. Mum died peacefully this week. I am not feeling as I thought I would, I'm a bit lost and at times function normally and then get lost. My mum was ill for a long time so she is at  peace now.
I managed to concentrate for a few hours at a workshop the other week and wondered if my journal page would qualify for Hels' challenge for this week. As you can see I have used blue as an accent colour. Thank you Kate, I learnt a lot and to Wendy at the Stamp Attic for the lovely workshops she puts on.
Not my usual style but I have always admired the way Kate Crane produces such vibrant colour and I realise now that I must be patient and make it up in layers! The dolls body was the outlandish bit for me and the other journal tag could have been 'I don't have a thing to wear!' but it was lovely to play with all the stamps Kate bought for us to play with. I have made her shoes sparkly with a sakura pen but it doesn't show in the photo.
My mum would have laughed so at this, she always enjoyed drawing and looking at my offerings.
I think I must try and do some dreaded 'H' word things now as my home has been sadly neglected. Love to you all x

  4. Hello Barb, so very sorry to hear about your Mum, such a sad time for you but as you say, she will be at peace now and that must help to know that. Thinking about you and am only on the end of an email if you I can help you in any way at all.
