A magical, fairy like feeling...

...has never appealed to me when scrapbooking.
But after I saw this kit that Karen made, I just couldn't help myself....
This is what I made with it:


This came to confirm my deep believe that, no matter how angry you are, diving into some mindless(well not so much mindless as focusing your mind in color and composition...) scrapping will always make you feel better.
I wasn't feeling all that well the other night, I guess the so dreaded teenage time, the adolescence period I know I have to get my daughter through is staring at me with those ugly green eyes....and threatening to wreck my beautiful mum/daughter relationship I have been so proud to construct all these almost 14 years (12 days to go...)

It all dissipated yesterday when we went to Cristina, whom I have been friends with for almost 20 years here in London, and we all had a great laugh, lots of wonderful food (feijoada completa!!!) drinks (just one caipirinha for me as I was driving) and dessert (caramel pudding) in harmony.

more than likely I'll be making something with the photos, but later...

Don't forget that Karen made some gorgeous word art for Katie's St Patrick's Day kit, you can find my LOs in my previous post , and in her blog Karen has a quick page made with Katie's kit as a freebie, plus the alpha for garbs when you sign up to her newsletter.
To get all freebies you can go HERE get all download links and update what's new around there...
Both kits are well worth having, as they (I think) can make amazing LOs for St Patrick's day but have amazing elements and backgrounds which will go along many photos all year around.
I know Karen was having some problems with a couple of elements which did not download for me at the beginning, but that has been sorted.
I had this problem with some kits from DigitalCrea Fr, and thought it was my computer but it obviously isn't...as many others are having problems like this...will try get to the bottom of what s causing it, but if you had some elements not downloading from zip files, I would love to hear from you, see if we can sort out what's going on :)
Hope you are all having a weekend as beautiful as mine!

Sorry things are tough right now. Glad you were able to relax with your friends. Too bad we don't live closer...like an ocean closer :-) You can ship her here to my mother's charm school. LOL We have threatened many a young lady with that option.

Thanks :)
I know is something we have to go through,ans is not all that bad overall, is just we always want the best for them, don't we? and is a fact of life that they need to learn by their own experiences...
I'm glad I have so many wise women around me :)

Praying for your relationship with your daughter, for peace, understanding and love.

Thank you so much for the encouraging, precious comments you bless me with over at my 'place'. I'm not as good a blog pen pal as I should be--but please know how much it blesses me to hear from you and how you always bring a smile to my face!
Blessings and hugs to you~

Well, don't you worry your little head. My grammar checker only works when I am at work and writing my own posts. I am sure Roban leaves her red pen at the door when she leaves her classroom, too.
