Ouch!

Jimjams - Layout detail - vellum circles and raised titleHopefully my current trip to Durham to visit No.1 Son and his lovely girlfriend won't involve a trip to A&E like the last one did!

Many thanks for all the sympathetic comments and well wishes.

Thankfully the bruising has gone and the wound has healed well: I won't be needing the sunglasses unless it's sunny!

Of course the photos had to be scrapped for my Book Of Me and perhaps I might remember to duck next time!

Jimjams - Layout - Ouch!

I've used my June Counterfeit kit and adapted the current sketch over at Purple Pumpkin to fit the 11x8½ album that houses my BOM pages (and fitted in with a UKScrappers weekly challenge).

Do you scrap the good the bad *and* the ugly sides of life or are your albums filled with purely happy memories?

It takes a talented and creative soul to make a pretty page out of a disaster :). Your bouncy 'Ouch' is a perfect touch. Hope this weekend goes well!

It's good to record the ups and the downs. That does look painful! Hope this trip is less eventful :)
