mon amie

I finally got to scan some old photos and resize them.This layout was for Shimelle’s prompt to use up stickers.I had a whole pack of Parisian inspired stickers and papers.We used to go to Paris every other June for the Paris air show.So I had bought them in anticipation of future trips.But with the recession these trips have unfortunately now stopped for us.

So I pulled out some pictures of us from 1993.We had taken the children to Euro Disney for Tasmins 3rd Birthday and couldn’t resist taking them into Paris to see the sites.I don’t think my children realise how lucky they were to travel to so many places when they were young.

I used up a lot of oddments of stash for this layout.I even used a metal P I had bought for a Paris title for whenever I got around to using  these papers.The black word fabric stickers were a freebie from a scrapbook retreat. In fact for some reason I have two lots,I have a feeling these will be in my stash for a very long time.The buttoned flower I made out of some prima ribbon I bought this week.

Shimelles next prompt was to use up our ever increasing garden of flowers.
















Another scanned photo from the French trip from 1993 was calling to me to be scrapped.So I have pulled everything out of my stash that I hope could be used and I will get to work tomorrow.

I had an email from the freaky eaters site to say they are asking people to start writing blogs about their SED problems.A lot if not the majority of people keep their disorder hidden from everyone but close family.So they never get to talk about it.The site is hoping that by talking about it,we could all get help,hope and just realise we are not the only weird one in the World.They are hoping to set up a weekly challenge,where together we will all try and attempt to eat a certain food and write about our experiences.So watch this space.

Love how you've managed to include so much on the page without it looking cluttered, the photos still pop.
Will watch you posts about SED with interest. Have you looked into EFT (Emotional Freedom Technique)? Works with lots of different conditions. Look up Gary Craig site at and his video clips on youtube.
