This is a two page layout on the theme sisters .I have four sisters some I am close to and some not so close, I have some fantastic memories of life knowing my sisters but have enjoyed one of them in particular in later life as all my sisters are a lot younger than me and I spent my childhood growing up with my five brothers ,it was ten years after me that my first sister came along and what a blessing she was it made a change from all those boys.Anyway I needed to journal it .
Hi everyone just thought I'd put a few of my recent pages on my new blog. Thank you for the lovely comments on my first post and thank you for following me I officially have 4 followers woohoo.
Can you believe that I've been playing with my photos all morning and I'm still in my PJ's I can see my blog eating up chunks of my life - but it is fun isn't it!
This first image is about how elephants never forget and reminds me of a difficult period of my life with lots of falling out, it isn't a happy memory but it is a memory nevertheless. This image is in a gorgeous 2006 diary that I found out that I'd never written in - how awesome is it that I can actually use something that I thought would just end up in the recycle box. It's a lovely A4 size and is leather bound so should take some hammering!
I love this image and just had to journal it and reminds me of all the adventurous men that I've met in my life!
This image reminds me on my Dad as he's wearing a flat cap, it would have been his birthday this last week and he would have been 84. My Dad was an awesome man and had 10 children and many many grandchildren. I miss him so much but it's been difficult in recent years as dementia robbed him of his memory. This page however reminds me of what a happy person he was always so gracious and loving and fun and just great company so it was nice to remember him in this way!

First ever blog, very new to this but follow quite a few, I like to see what people are up to and I've met some great people through Dyan at AFTH when I attended a beginner's art journaling course in February - had an awesome time and haven't stopped journaling since - it's taking over my life but I love it!
I've reached the big 60 recently and am now semi-retired which has given me much more time to come and play on my new laptop and with all my lovely paints and inks and papers and journals etc.
I promise to come back later once I've worked out how to photograph my journals and put them on my computer! See ya later!
