Blog my heart and a card

Cute Monster narrow

Hi there...how are you today/tonight??

I hope your week is going along nicely....TGIF tomorrow hey ;-))

I'm popping in tonight to share a card created for Manor House Creations....using the cute Little Monsters Collection from The ScrapCake.

But first of all I want to do this.....

Untitled
Do you follow Stephanie Howell's Blog? Well I have recently rediscovered her blog with my newfound love for scrapping and she is encouraging us to be REAL on our blogs and say what's in our heart.

For me tonight it's sadness. I had to give someone some disappointing news today and it didn't feel good. In the big scheme of things in some people's worlds this will probably seem trivial but for me, right now I feel sad. I joined a mother and daughter's netball team a month ago to play with my daughter who was keen on the idea....deciding to do it was pushing myself right out of my comfort zone and my intuition was screaming "what- are you crazy?? Say "NO!".....but I didn't. I said "Yes" and the last month of games have been some of the most anxious times of my adult life. I have been hurt, humiliated, frightened, embarrassed, stressed and as a result have today pulled out of the team. I don't feel good about it. I don't feel proud of myself. I feel rotten for leaving the team and letting them down. But I also feel relieved. I should never have said yes. It was so not me right from the word go but I was trying to be someone else. Someone who enjoys running around like a crazy person, chasing a zooming ball, fighting to win and sweating like a pig in the process. That's not me and I knew that a month ago. I have learnt my lesson! Sad, sad, sad :(

Anyway.....onto my card now.....

Mini Album continued....

Hey....hope you've had a great Monday!

I have been busily working with DT jobs over the weekend for Shop and Crop (the November Card Kit) and Manor House Creations (sweet new range of flowers and Scrapcake Papers).....nothing I can show you just yet...but I do have a few more 6x6 layouts for DD's Dinner Dance Album.

As anyone with teens knows they love to take photos of themselves with their friends....often holding the camera out at arms length and snapping away.....which I'm appreciating I must admit since I wasn't there to take pics in person ;-))

(I like to blurr out names so you'll notice the "smudges" in different spots)

Along with the bright and bold Echo Park Happy Days range the layout above has a beautiful new Manor House Creation flower....called a Velvetine...it's so beautiful:-)

Alrighty, busy night with a function to get to so I better run and organsie dinner.....thanks for popping in:-))

Ciao!
