these 2 weeks have been so emotional for me. everything has come to a head for me...the house, my job, owen, henry, brian, missing my sister, not going to the celtic festival this weekend. but the sadness is over. BYGONES. DONE. GOODBYE.

This is the first time i have ever found creativity in sadness if that makes any sense at all. The thing is i couldn't scrap owen. I will though. tonight was good watching him play soccer tonight, explaining his scars again. BYGONES. DONE. GOODBYE.

Today finalized something for me about scrapping my future. Stay tuned on that one.

Thanks for letting me vent the past few days. I am done with all that and ordering some boots from Urban Outfitters. Specifically these. I feel like I kicked some butt lately.




Or maybe some from Piperlime. I am diggin' this site. I can order shoes for me, owen and brian all in one shot. yup. nice. or their are these lovelies from Black House White Market...hmmmm...decisions! hello Judly sling back~meet ellen!



oh and i didn't even check out Anthropologie yet!

these boots were made for walkin'...you know the rest!


Or maybe the Bind-it-all. Feel free to vote!

I leave you these...two layouts with some Fancy Pants love that I got from HSS. And the Pageframe star! THANK YOU SHARON!!! I sprayed some Tim Holtz spray washes on it {Stream} and then sprayed it with glitter adhesive {a new FAVE of mine} and then while it was still tacky...i added Doodlebug Glitter and voila! they made green but funky, sparly kinda fun greenish blue and yellowish!

Oh and pop up dots. Please. Could i go through one more packet of these??? LOL!

I will happily support you shopping to feel better. You deserve it!! Those WH/BM ones are cute but I can't decide if it is cute in a stripper way. But then the heel would be clear, so I guess not. They are ever so tempting though...

Im not a boot wearer but those are nice. Spoil yourself, you deserve it.

Take time to work through your feelings, scrapbooking can be very therapetic.

You've been through some real stressers lately, and I think buying yourself some new boots is a nice little pick me up!!
