One Little Word - Automatic

I started out with gusto on this layout & then got quite fed up at the end as I realised that despite using the word stickers from the same sheet, the "m" appears far smaller than the other letters.
Paper is chatterbox Chateau Upholstery, which I scalloped myself using my Ek success corner rounder. (tip I picked up from sisterhood of scrap) Brackets are cut from cereal box & painted brown then 3D gloss added. Tags are from clothing.
Behind the photo is a journal tag which tells the story of how I had to save for 5 years before I could afford a washing machine. I have had it 5 years now & can't imagine how I managed before. I had to hand wash everything & my sister took my bedding & towels. I got this one from our local Water Authority. It cost £100 less than in the stores & is ECO FRIENDLY....

My friend Joy, also share some fab news with me earlier today. Lewis (Bradley, of Joseph) is to star as Joseph in the West End as Lee, who won the part ,doesn't think his voice is up to the extra performances that the show has been extended by. I am so thrilled. Well Done Lewis, see I knew I had faith in him for a reason!!!

I love the smaller m on the page. Even better is the story. Sometimes we don't appreciate those items that make our lives easier. What a great capture!
