Last Day at Work - tomorrow

I'm going into work for the last time tomorrow and I know there is a presentation and other things organised for me. Whilst it was my decision to take voluntary redundancy for many reasons, I know I will find it difficult to say goodbye to everyone. I have worked there for 20 years working my way up from being a temporary member of staff to being a member of the Senior Management Team. I wont miss the stresses of the job but I will miss my team of dedicated support staff who have always been very loyal and supportive. I've got a lump in my throat and tears in my eyes already - get a grip girl !!!

Title or No Title

Today has been one of those days where nothing has gone to plan in fact I have felt a little bit let down - never mind tomorrow is another day.

I have managed to do some finishing off of LO's I started at yesterdays crop and the one a couple of weeks ago

Title or no title - I always put a title on LO's - well until now. I couldn't think of a title for it and the more I looked at it the more I thought it looks OK without.
What do you think? Its of my Granddaughter and husband climbing above the falls at Aira Force in the Lake District

Favourite LO's

After going through my gallery on UKS to have a clear out and me being a poor blogger last year I decided to post some of my favourites from the last couple of months.

I love this photo of my daughter as walking behind her it really did look as though she was carrying someone in her rucksack (even though the boots are on the wrong feet). This was quite a graphic simple LO for me as I'm usually into lots of detail and inking

This one is of my granddaughter horse riding and was for the sketch and scrap group I am part of. Title was cut on the Cricut and the glossy accented. MS border punch and lace and a Prima twig

Back to the inking and distressing with this one and as you can see changed the photo to sepia to fit in with the papers. This is granddaughter again with her dog Tana

And now my lovely husband who is quite particular about the photos I use of him ( just as well he doesnt see them all )

Lots of inking and distressing again. This is from a Sarahs cards kit
