Visual Delights and Blessedness

Okay, this post is dedicated to some visual “ta-da” work while at the Scrap Therapy retreat.

Love these Collections Owls (class with Relsi)

Noice Tag book for all the photos (another class with Relsi)

Class with Belinda (a 8.5×11 layout converted to 12×12)

Class with Natalie but layout was by Julie – who couldn’t make it :((( (another conversion to 12×12)

One challenge was to create a layout using some stuff from the Goodie Bag

Another was to create a card from the same Bag


I’m feeling a little blessed about now. I’ve pretty much won a prize from every challenge I entered last month.

I’ve just been told that I won the Monthly WORD inspiration challenge at Scrap Therapy for my “I had an Idea” layout with all the Fancy Pants pp!!

It’s one thing to be published, but there’s nothing like being judged by your peers, people who you know and who know you and think you’re doing okay with all this PAPER, SCISSORS, GLUE thing!!

A little overwhelmed right now but oh-so thankful!! (for once I’m a little lost for words….just a little)

There are photographers…..and then there’s RACHEL!!

Rainer’s was lucky (and I mean LUCKY) enough to have the immensely talented Rachel Richter photograph his AEIOU centre. It’s a brave photographer to work with typical children, it’s another level of commitment to leap into the world of ASD!!!

I met Rachel briefly that day and then she emailed me to say that Rainer was a little challenging to photograph.

And then she produces this……




I cannot take my eyes off it and can’t wait to have a canvas printed.

Working hard on meeting my deadlines now. The back has had another go at the Chiro today after being in pain for the last 3 weeks.

Brighter and buoyant……
