Life is a shipwreck but we must not forget to sing in the lifeboats


Saw this lithograph by Picasso in the paper so decided to use it on a journal page today. The challenge over at Theme Thursday is girls..so I have had fun incorporating lots of girl stamped images on this page along with some paints and pastels...love the quote out of my daily paper by Voltaire. I have added some of my cinema stubs as I think an ideal night out would be to watch a movie. I went to my fav local cinema today and watched Limitless..recommend it as its a fantastic film with a good moral to it (life is not about easy solutions such as taking wonder drugs! but about gaining experience through hard work..watch out for De Niro's dialogue)


I bought a new bag yesterday in a different turquoise colour to my usual black so its nice and summery..wanted to art it up a bit so made this crochet flower adornment. We are having a heatwave so have got the paddling pool out for the kids who have finished school today for Easter..off to make the most of the rest of the balmy summer evening..life is a lot easier when the sun shines dont you think!
