journey of life!!

well another day another challenge!! today is my scrapbook page for scrummystash cafe ,the theme this week is ~"bon voyage" ~anything to do with holiday/transport/journey ~so here is my take!! a magical holiday on a very (then) quiet and untouched greek island , kefalonia, back in september 1995!! where my husband asked me to marry him!! so for us it was a holiday journey and a life changing journey!!! this page did not come out as i imagined , so a bit disappointed!! used papers and words from my brenda pinnick set, embellishments from sizzix and quickutz. the wording on the computer!! (better detail if you click onto the pic!!)

for anyone interested here are lewis`s and my sunflowers , now two weeks old and measure 25 cms!!! (he loves the fact i`m putting the pictures on my blog ~so may have to see the flowering sunflowers every thursday ,girls!!)
well the pressure of the SAT`s have started , as my son got beaten up at school yesterday at break time!! ( not the only child this week) badly bruised and shaken, have got him back into school today (but for any of you who know me and aaron, that in it`s self is very difficult) so to all MP`s ~get rid of this pressure on our children and teachers ~sorry i will get of my soap box now!!
hope you all have a great day, and may your journey today be a good one!! byeeeeeeeeeee xx

Hi Vanessa, like the layout. Hope your son has a better day today. No what you mean about the pressure of SATS, my elder one has slept in our bed for the last month, she wakes up and then can't get back off, so crawls into bed with us. Thanks for doing the stamping. Anita

oo I love the page Vanessa, I really like the way you've ripped the photo's good look, I like a lot. Nice colours too, and cor don't you look younger lol.
Well done Lewis, your plants are coming on a treat. Won't be long until they are bigger than you. big hugs for my handsome little man.
And poor Aaron, makes you wonder weather these tests for teachers are worth it. I know I hate them. Big smile for Aaron for going into school today. Know he doesn't do hugs
Take care hugs Vicki oxo's

Love the LO the papers are fab and those sunflowers are great. Sorry to hear about Aaron, SATS are a pain in the butt, my eldest boy is doing his Yr 6 ones at the moment, but luckily for us he's so chilled out and is not bothered by them at all but some of his friends are. Hope things are better for him today
