Welcome friends to the September Colour Bloghop as organised by Amy. If you have arrived from here you are in the right place. Below is also the full list of participants this month








Can't believe a whole month has passed since the last one, and indeed it was my last post. Since then I've been to Kew Gardens in London, went on holiday to Slovenia and Italy, and it was 2nd wedding anniversary and my 37th birthday. More info on Kew and my holiday coming up in next few weeks.








This months colour scheme incorporates, yellow, pink, turquiose, mustard and black. I decided to use a black background to make the other colours pop off the page. I have used embellishments from the Make and Create Shop Spring to Life Kit ( I think it came out in April this year). The colours are absolutely perfect for this challenge. For the pink lettering I used colorbok Flavia range (an old kit I purchased years ago), yellow lettering is Carla Bell Pepper from Bella Blvd and the other lettering is Faded Blue by Cosmo Cricket.






See you next month when we have a Autumn/Fall theme with a choice of colour schemes






Please head here for the next participant in this blog hop

Look forward to seeing you all soon

  3. Hi Lesley, nice to "meet" you in Blogland!

    I like the black background, with the light blue photo mat - it really does "pop". The embellishments are fun - love the dragonflies! This colour-scheme really works, even though I'd never have thought of it myself. Great page!

Happy Birthday to Me

Its my Birthday.  I am 42 years old.  Wow, how did that happen?????? Is still feel like I'm 21

A fresh start

I am currently at ease with myself and the way my life is at present.

That is a huge statement for me to share and also a very long time coming.

The past few years have been really tough.  Life seemed to have totally gone off track.  My life felt off kilter and to a point not my own.  I suffered deeply with depression, had a crappy job, my relationship with my husband was at times very strained and I had become very insular and within myself.  Life felt hard and I suffered greatly.

I got a new job, and for a few months I hated it.  It didn't float my boat so to speak.  I thought I could do better.  I felt like I had taken a huge step backwards career wise, I was unhappy and felt broken.  But I suddenly had an AHA moment.  I realised that I could and should change my attitude towards it.  I didn't want to look for a new job as it had taken a while to find this one and I hated filling in application forms and going to interviews.  I didn't want to find a job where I would…

Happy wedding anniversary

Seven years today I wore this beautiful dress to marry my best friend.  Seven years today I vowed to love and cherish my best friend forever..  We have had many ups and downs over the past seven years but I wouldn't change a thing. 

AJ I love you.  You are my world xx
