And off we go..... Twenty 15 Album started !!

Good morning everyone.. I am back at work this week after a long 9 weeks off after my shoulder surgery.  All going well so far.  I hope my cortisone injection holds up tho.  I am like walking on eggshells hoping to not get any pain at all.
I have been thinking about my title page for weeks.  I liked my last years one but I wanted to go away from my favorite tiffany blue colour this time and not sue black and white photos like I did last year.
Nice to change it around.  Gold is one of my favorite colours and has been for over 12 months now. So I wanted to put this in.  I really wanted to ouse the photo of Ken and I down the bottom which was our 2014 Christmas Day photo.  This is what prompted me for the gold colour.  It works in really well.  So I went from there.

Below I have used an overlay which was great to have the pop of colour.

I just adore this fussy cut out from Flutterby Designs.  I have inked it up with my lovely gold ink and cut of these words from Crate Paper.

Us - the investor and the creator.. we work so so well together. I love my man so dearly.

And the mixture of us - our boy Corey.. Amazing and so intelligent ... Love this kid.  The gold card is from Becky Higgins Lovely kit and a Heidi Swapp overlay.

Ohhh look what I found in my stash of frames.. a lovely Crate Paper gold one.  The gold writing underneath is a beautiful transparent overlay 12x12 sheet.  It is so sweet and nice for an add in to any pocket.

Thanks for stopping in today.. I have the day off so doing a bit of coffee and socialising and then out to see this FIFTY SHADES OF GRAY tonight for a hens night.. Dinner and drinks before... Im not that excited about the movie.  I have heard it has been rated with a 2 lol
Ohhh dear.
Bye for now..
Keep smiling and be happy.. Life is amazing.. and we are free!!!

Feeling amazing

Well on this lovely note on this fine (well dull rainy but relaxing Thursday) I would like to jot down that I had a cortisone injection in my shoulder after such a nasty 8 weeks of trying to recover after surgery.. and it has freed me up something amazing.. I am so so happy that I listened to my body and went to my surgeon. I have got a nasty thing called frozen shoulder.. this can unfortunately happen after surgery. I have not been able to move my shoulder or do my rehab exercises due to it freezing up. Steve gave me one nasty needle Monday morning then he asked me to lift my arm as I did 3 minutes earlier. I felt like a free bird. My face lifted andy he sadness and pain left me. I have been great since Monday and I am feeling like a new woman. I think I am ready to go back to work.. on light duties.. I am so grateful I feel like my normal Moonie again. Pain is shocking.. I feel for anyone suffering from any sort of pain. Last night I went over to my lovely friends place in the stunning Glasshouse Mountains.. Kirsty Blinston is an amazing Mummy to Five and it doesnt stop there. She is one person who every single day amazes me. Kirsty took up traditional Project Life last year after seeing how I do my pages.. BUT... she also does it digi too. Yes.. she has 2 albums.. Her digi work is to die for and amazing.. You will find her work quiet outstanding.. so much to see. Last night we brain stormed for about 4 hours and Kirsty gave my blog a new make over. Im so happy with it. Was indeed time for a change. A new look is always nice and fresh. Our son went to camp on Monday morning.. He is not the one to rush off and cant wait to get away from us. He is quite the opposite to be precise. He was sobbing quietly on my shoulder about not wanting to go. I know it is a separation thing for him.. but I also know that he loves it when he is there and we are out of sight. The night before my DH suggested we take off in the camper van just the two of us as we never ever get time out on our own. During the day if I have the day off but over night and two nights??? It's just unheard of. So DH packed up the camper van the morning I took Corey to school. We didn't tell him we we were going.. that would have blown it for sure.. We took off to this lovely remote part of the Hinterland. A place called Mount Tamborine. It was a lovely quiet caravan park in the bush and just a little township. The weather was perfect and the time out for us was delightful. We didn't do much except be together and go for a few bush walks, photos, tried to perfect my new selfie stick I got for Christmas, had lunch and organic coffee, and a scrumptious piece of steak and mushrooms, cherry tomatoes and zucchini on the BBQ for dinner. Asleep at 8.30pm. Bliss.
I had a bit of fun playing with my camera while I had the whole bush to myself.
I love that I was able to catch the sunlight in the background.


This was a vintage furniture store.. All I could say was OMG... LOL

My beautiful friend who sat with us every evening while I was having a drink.

In at the Botanical Gardens.

3 metres from our camper van.


Ken in his glory setting up camp for us both.. He loves to look after me out here as I am not the biggest camper.. I do glamping.. not camping lol

I have my few home comforts.

Now I am back at home I am excited to get back into my Project Life weeks. I am up to Week 3 and need to do my title page for twenty 15.' Anyway that's it for now.. I will post some photos of my coming weeks soon x Love and hugs Moonie x
