{Work Girls}

Back in 2008 I was working in a job that was really having major effects on my health. And after some really hard months I decieded enough was enough. I handed in my notice and went looking for another job. 2 days after I left my previous job I started a brand new shiny one. I have been in this job ever since. It was a change in direction, into a area I had no knowledge of. But I have grown, learned and actually enjoy my work. I work part time in an office, my team I work with are all girls. Which makes for a fun time. I am lucky as they do make going into work (on those bad days!) a little bit better. I have a good realtionship with them and I was honoured they were able to come and enjoy our wedding day with us.

These girls are awesome!

Also this is another challenge layout from www.Shimelle.com on mixing patterned papers. I remeber when I first started scrapbooking and struggled with trying to get different lines to mix. Whereas now I do it without thinking. I just go for matching colours, or complementing styles. This layout uses Echo Park, Bella Blvd and Sassfrass plus a little JillyBean from my scraps. A slight cheat as this uses my April Studio Calico kit (which does make matching a little easier!!)  The blog has even more awesome examples of mixing and matching papers!

Thanks for stopping by.

Happy Crafting



  1. Good for you to have the courage to change jobs and do what is best for you! Love your layout.

  2. I did something very similar almost 4 years ago and have never looked back! I love my job and the lovely people I work with. More so than the evil woman had to put up with in my last job and the reason I left after 6 years!! Love the LO BTW :-)

  3. I love this. You are a natural with mixing papers.
