I did it!!{a layout}

Finally, I decided, I am leaving the dishes, not thinking of the ironing, I WILL SCRAP TODAY!!
So,I did this layout, of the last photo taken of Megan.
I used some new Bo Bunny, "flower child" paper and stickers and some Daisy D's Rub on's.
I did a plain page, keeping my focus on my photo.
Without noticing, I am doing more and more single layouts these days.
I also don't often scrap on yellow, but with the photo being black and white, it was easy to use this time.
The journaling reads: Megan, don't become, what people want you to be. Be the writer of your own story, A Beautiful Life.

Then this, ok, READ CAREFULLY: This was not done by me!
Megan made this!
I promise, I only did the chipping of the tiles, she had to do it in a 6 hour, practical class of Art and Design at school.
So, being scared, that she might not finish, we did the chipping at home.
The sticking, designing and grouting,they had to do outside their class.
Seeing, it is quite a large cross, it did take farely long to dry.
In total, with her exam paper, she got 96%
She enjoys this art, she is busy doing a cupcake, over weekends, whenever there is time.
Megan is experiencing some stress lately, I am not too worried, I do monitor her mood and keep in contact, via sms during the day.
It is a long story, I thought it was over, BUT NOT!! {will maybe share the whole dilemma, some day}
Otherwise, we are ALL doing well.
Thanks for coming over.

  1. Love your layout... and congrats to Megan on her wonderful creation and exam.

  2. Looks good Tania...one needs to take a day or two off from the housework....I've taken off more than that so u can imagine how gritty my house is right now...
    Well done to megan...

    You are a mother and will worry about your child...its okay, just be there for her as you are!

  3. Love your LO and that cross of Megan's is really beautiful.

  4. Great layout...and I love Megan's cross.

  5. The LO is great.
    The cross is totally amazing, she is very talented.

  6. Love the LO - beautiful. I'm definately into the simple single LO's - not that i've scrapped for an age.

    Hope all is OK with M and that the drama from earlier this year has not reared it's ugly head. Be there for her. That's what you are doing so continue.

    LOVE the cross - it is stunning. Very creative and talented daughter you have. xx

  7. Your layout is really nice. Once you start looking at layouts over the internet you get into the single page thing - I love it - much more practical I think - quicker & easier - unless of course I have enough photos for a double. Like also that it is not too busy & you have some "white space" - Megan's cross is brilliant! Really neat & well executed. Sorry to hear she is having a bit of a hard time. Our poor kids always seem to be going through some nonsense at school. Hope it comes right soon!

  8. Lovely layout of Megan with the Bo Bunny !!! & I love the journalling that goes with it !
