This is me kathleen fishing of the rocks at Cape paterson, I was about 14 years old. I day was sunny and my brother and his family were there too. He was teasing me aboput catching any fish. But, look I caught a fish and just look at the size, honestl;y can it be any smaller. BAIT FISH. My brother teased me all day about my big fish.
I have journalled about the magic of the ocean, about how it calms me when its rough. The hot air balloon element is holding my photo cut out Silhouette's. See the string that is attached to the balloons, it is tied around it dream story , and it is held up with the use of a dog collar and sandcastle.
Lots of flowers and the soft sheep wool circle is my soft element.The three star hold the initial of each grand child, the youngest is only now five days old, aaron, these are the stars in my orbit. I have used the words magic and drift in my journalling.http://csicolorstoriesinspiration.ning.com/photo
The background i have used gesso and the inside of the heart is gesso, white with a touch of pink paint. Pink flower to match the colour of her cake and the little beads to match the sprinkles on her cake. I love working with gesso the texture it gives various with what you do with it.

This is Tony and Bennie , visiting us in Nowra, N.S.W. We were all going on a holiday to Kingston, Tony's home town. The boys rode their bikes, we travelled in our car, with two small little girls. We spent two weeks together and saw the biggest lobster andother sight seeing places. Tony is the girls god-father and Bennie is a close friend of his. They were typical guys, big toys and lots of noise and dust.
Happy birthday jackie it another year. Here we are with the dog cake that her Aunty Eve made for her. With her sister Ness looking on she cuts her cake. Turning thirteen was great.
\I have kept with the theme, lots of yellow colour, a few flowers, dictionary paper with some birthday wishes thrown in from her mum and sister. http://challengeheaven.ning.com/photo

This tells my trip to jumping out of a plane and going back down to earth. The peace and quiet, and the thrill I experinced. All the elemnts relate to hot air balloons and songs and birds. That's me coming down with my parachute. wow what a great day 1st January,1997. My family was there to watch me come down.
This is my daughter jackie and my mum christina, sharinga cuddle and hair pulling. The expression on mum's face says it all. ow. I was able to use lots of stickles on this page, it would not be a page of mine with some glitter. All the baby elements are what jackie wither had as a toy or what i used when she was a baby. The thing about this photo is the look and the guiding hand my mumm gives to jackie while she is learning to walk. These are the moments i will remember the most. Lots of laughs and love.
