Home Sick today

Gosh... don't you just feel sometimes your on top of the world and you can handle anything then BANG you feel like shit and your struggling to cope. i feel sad today, I think sometimes we push to far and the body says slow down and hands out a couple of warning signs. All of me is aching today, worried about work, I was suppose to get my hair done tonight but cancelled!... My Noah is on his way home that always makes me smile :O) Just thought I would share.

Completed this layout acouple of weeks ago wanted to step outside my comfort zone. I have a good selection of embellishments however don't tend to use them as the are the wrong colour or wrong size so I've decided to be more adventurous and use them when ever.

Second try.

After talking to a friend today, decided to come home and give blogging
another go and try and make my blog pretty ( i love pink)
And happy with the outcome so far. Just need to workout how to add the
