The monthly challenge over at UKS consists of a one word prompt - Joy. To be interpreted however you choose.
This is what I went with:
I immediately thought of these photos and, by happy coincidence, the colours in the photos went beautifully with the Renewed Spirit digi kit by Agnes Biro/Yellow Butterfly which I had bought recently and was dying to have a play with.
In some ways, this LO is a bit different for me... because I'm in it! :lol: I'm usually the one behind the camera, snapping away, so I don't often appear in the photos that I scrap. And, of course, I look horrendous in these photos! :lol: To be fair though, I had good reason to look awful... I'd been feeling like death warmed over just the day before, due to what was later diagnosed to have been a bout of swine flu(!), and was still dehydrated (as proven by the fact that it took two anaesthetists working together over 20 minutes to get that canula you can see into my flipping hand!!), and I'd been through a very quick, very painful, labour followed by a few hours of poking and prodding and, finally, surgery, to resolve some post-partum complications!
Nevertheless, I decided to scrap these photos - regardless of how awful I look - as, as the journalling explains, the moment these photos capture is one that pretty much sums up the word Joy for me. :)
This LO was made using PSE 10 and all the elements are from the Renewed Spirit kit, except the title and journalling, which are done with fonts installed on my computer (can't recall the font names atm, sorry!). :)
