Father's Day ...

WARNING A LONG TALE OF WOE .......

What a horrible 3 weeks I have had ..... my college course is coming to an end, so trying to get all the last minute assignments and work handed in .... then to top that on my teacher training day on the first of June, I went and sprained my knee (found out on Thursday this is what I have done, d'oh). I was opening a deadbolt on the bottom of a door, and when I went to stand up I twisted my knee, hear it pop!!!! Me being me struggled on through out the day and the rest of the week too!!! Then on the Saturday, I stood up wrong and twisted it again, now that one really hurt, by Sunday morning both my knee and my ankle swelled up!!! Went to the doctors and she gave me some inflammatories and the sexist support tights you have ever seen .... NOT .... it went from the top of my thigh to my toes!!!! Anyways since I had a college observation I went back on Wednesday instead of staying off and resting it, (when will I ever learn). So I struggled on for the rest of the week. Then on Monday while at school, the pain was really intense so I went to the business manager/HR (yeah I wrote that correctly, all schools have these) and told her that I wanted to self certify for the rest of the week. So I have been at home with my feet up .... going absolutely banana's .... as I couldn't find a comfortable position to do any crafting, read my latest book in the first day tried to watch tv, but my oh my day time tv is bad ... wasn't interested in the movies they were playing! Anyways, went back to the doctors on Thursday as I couldn't bend my knee without being in extreme pain couldn't drive, as I did that on Monday and I was so close to crying in pain, so I took the bus. The doctor examined my knee and said I had a severe knee sprain, which footballers, gymnastics, tennis players, etc get a lot due to the twisting and turning they do on their feet! He signed me off for another week, with the warning to take it easy, especially when I go back to work!

So that leads my to today, where at last I can sit and do some crafting, yeah, yeah, yeah!!!!

Love you so



I have made this layout for Steve for Father's day!!!
I love this photo of the three of them!

The page is made up mainly from Tracey's Kit from her shop!

I cut around the swirls and inked the edges with distress ink along with the edge of the paper.

The journaling tag is from a kit that I have had for ages! It was a Cosmic Cricket kit both from QVC! I cut the white border from the tag, and inked it up with distress ink! Then wiped it off again with a baby wipe as it was very dark! I then added a few tares and pearls. I did the same with the titles!



I was going to dye the white lace, but when I put it on, it looked good so I left it alone!

Did you see the cute little owl???? hehehe and also the little fairy????? These aren't meant to stand out at all!!!
