Ellephantastic Design Team day!

Good moring everyone!! Apologies I'm posting a bit later this morning. I have had a couple of mental busy days because one of my rabbits (oh just realised the digi is a rabbit too how fitting!!) Ebony was really poorly & I had to take her to the vets & she stayed there over night. She is back home now though & back to her silly self this morning!!

Ok now on to Ellephantastic Design Team day!!!
I would firstly like to say a big thank you to Jilli & a sad wave goodbye as she has had to step down from her DT post due to personal things.....but not to fear as the lovely Angie has joined us & this week is her first project using Rosaline rabbit & just look at what lovely creation she has made.

Linda is very lucky & is away at shepton mallet but has left us with this lovely card

 

Heidi has also done a beautiful card. I love the flower papers.

Jane has made a gorgeous bright & sunny card just right for todays weather!!
 

All the DT girls have used my digi Rosaline Rabbit
To see all my digis click HERE
if you would like to buy any then please EMAIL me with the one you would like & I will send you an invoice.
Sorry for the inconvenience caused this will be temporary till I have my new shop running!

ME/CFS update, MRI results, make Fybromyalgia visible

As most of you are aware I suffer with ME/CFS & for a while now I have been having some severe headaches. Yesterday I visited my doctor again about my neck pains.  My neck pains make it hard for me to do anything even simple things like brushing my teeth. My neck can also cause me to blackout/pass out/faint.

A few weeks ago I had an MRI on my brain, neck & shoulders. Yesterday the doctor told me that they found a few little things which were nothing significant & basically I am fine. This of course is good news but at the same time is bad news for me as yet again I was hoping they would find something to explain the strange pains, passingout & headaches. I wanted them to fix me.

I am therefore stuck with the fact that everything stupid little random thing wrong with me is due to the ME/CFS & Fybromyalgia, so now I am determined to make my life a tad easier by making everyone else aware of ME/CFS & Fybromyalgia

The links on the left hand side are all ME/FM related links
If & when I find things of interest I will be adding to them & will try & do the odd post too.
Thank you

Scrap book pages - sketch challenges

I'm making a scrapbook album as a gift for someone & have used sketches from challenges as my inspiration.
There are no images/photos because I am making it for the person to be able to put their own pictures in.

This one is sketch from Scrap & Stamp but I've not done it quite right so can't enter it!!

you can't quite see on the photo but there are 3 little flower stickers where the circles are on the sketch
