November 2011 Colour Blog Hop

Welcome to November's Colour Blog Hop. If you are here from Kirsty's blog you are in the right place

This months colour scheme has a cocoa/chocolate theme

I thought this scheme was perfect for a layout of my wedding dress (picture quality not good as taken using I Phone). Butterflies cut out of American Crafts kraft paper, Misting using Studio Calico's Mr Hueys in Calico White, and mask by Studio Calico. Brown paper also American Crafts and pearls (from my craft stash).

Please go here for the next participant in this blog hop and I look forward to seeing you in December for the next blog

Good Evening from Pickle Land

Hope you have a good day/evening wherever in the world you are

  1. Very elegant page! Love those butterflies and the background design you used.

  2. Beautiful dress! I love your take on the challenge:)

  3. This looks great - I love the use of the stencil on background. Very classy :0)

  4. Wonderful idea using your wedding dress in a layout! I've got the uniform I wore when I graduated nursing school and nurses don't wear dresses anymore it seems, so taking a photo of it and documenting it would be great. (use this link, not the blogger link with my name)

  5. Hi Lesley, I hope you're still ok to come on the Bloggers' Crafting Weekend next Friday.
    Just a memory jogger - I sent out a group e-mail on 11th, asking for several bits of info; I need a reply from you asap please! I'll post an e-mail reminder too, but just in case the e-mails are not getting through!
    Thanks, Lizzie

  6. Beautiful layout and dress. I love the butterflies and pearls.

  7. Gorgeous page about your dress - very elegant! I think I recognise those butterflies! (thanks for the loan of the punch)

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…

I'm back

It's been far too long.  But I'm back. Just checking in at the moment, but I'm going to start visiting again.  New attitude, new me, excited for the new journey I'm on.  Watch this space.

Love Lesley xxxxx
