TOFF #10 Stripes and WOYWW #118

Where did that week go?!!!  I can't believe it's Wednesday again already.  I've had a rubbish day, fighting off some stomach bug and generally feeling rotten, although I did watch 'The Adjustment Bureau' starring Matt Damon :) and got a journal page and a tiny canvas made - so maybe not such a bad day lol


The canvas is for a friend of mine who is moving out to live in Hong Kong for a year.  It's tiny so she should fit it in her suitcase!


I had to tidy my desk when I couldn't find my blank inkpad...


...ta dah!  It didn't take long either, as most things now have a home to go to.  More images for desk junkies available from others very like me over at The Stamping Ground!  The journal page I've been working on was for the 'Stripes' challenge over at The Octopode Factory.  I added stripes to the snail a couple of nights ago so just needed to create a background and add some journalling. [This is my A6 passport size journal]


I found it quite hard to come up with something for this little snail as she is so sad!  I wanted to do something more personal than making up a little story about her, but couldn't bring myself to write a list of 'things that made me sad' as I don't dwell on sadness!!!  This quote jumped out at me yesterday and as she has her snail shell strapped on I decided she was really a worm pretending to be a snail ;)

Lovely journal page, Life's too short to dwell on sadness so glad you found something else to focus on on the page! I like the colours, lovely and vibrant. Have a good day.
