Paper08 - The Smaller Picture

The Paper08 challenge this week is telling us to take a look at the smaller picture. It says we all think we should be looking at the bigger picture. Well I for one don't! I am a person who lives for all the small moments & the happy times because life has dealt me a bag of crap & I've had to learn how to make the best of it. Here is my page. The photo isn't good as it is old & taken with an old 110 camera. But this journal is about me & for me so it doesn't matter if people can't really see the detail. I have half done my Wednesday Stamper project but am waiting on it drying before I can complete the second side. Hope to share tomorrow but its my last day home so will want some quiet time to myself to coplete my packing. I intend to enjoy myself, this has cost me over £200 & I had to spend my xmas present money to be able to go.
Good news today, my team mate Nic gave birth, yesterday, to a beautiful healthy 7lb 2oz daughter, Isabella Jane. Congratulations Nic & Ian. We shall miss her as she can't attend the retreat but has far more precious things to take care of.
