Trying To Stay Positive.

This week has been a stressful one! no luck with interviews or new jobs and with work getting to me more and more I think its all just getting me down! so it is good I have had a nice relaxing weekend.

Saturday - I went shopping in the morning to buy my friend a birthday present, I also bought myself some clothes, candy, and a heated hair brush, all one my credit card! and I also bought some sushi for my lunch Yummo! I came home, and scrapped the above layout "Best Days" for the latest category stories challenge! my best days are like the day I had Saturday, shopping, scrapping, and eating sushi! I used paint, crayons and sakura pens to color the rainbows, it took me ages.

Sunday - Today I have been sooooooo tired! I spoke to my mom and she thinks I am stressed with work because I basically manage finance all by myself at 20 years old, and that combined with looking for another job is stressful. I got up at 6am to clean Roxies Tray and let her come up for a morning cuddle, I have been so tired I had breakfast, did my ironing and slept 11am till 12pm then I scrapped the above layout for Scrap Mojo.

My mom has let me have some old photos of me when I was young, and I thought this was a great photo to scrap "Oh The Places You Will Go" back then at 3 years old, I had so many dreams and I never knew where I would be by the time I was 20. I seem to be at a negative place in my life right now and this layout reminds me that things will get better, I still have alot to look forward to, and I need to stay positive because thinking "I will never get a job, knowone wants me" is not a good way to be. Also people have bigger problems then I do.

This layout really makes me smile! infact every layout I have created recently has made me smile, I feel I am a comfortable scrapper.

I will leave you with this snap of my sushi I ate yesterday. I am off to watch some friends on TV.

Great layouts in your trademark bright and colourful style. Sorry to hear about the stress. Hope you get another job soon.

I love your scrapbooking style and I think if you are a comfortable scrapper then you are a happy scrapper. People should always make Lo's for themselves, after all it's them who are going to look at the Lo's years later.
