Keeping it Real

Monday morning.
Another day another week.
Need to get back into work but really really struggling after the best weekend ever.

Let me start with this weeks challenge at The Studio.
Here's the challenge that Amanda set for us:

Grrr! What gets right on your nerves? Tell us all about it with a spot of creative therapy! Get it off your chest... you'll feel much better for it

I decided to go with a LOVE vs Hate theme.
I love my sister but hate the smoking. Yuk!!!
She's smelly at the best of times, but even more so like this.

I handcut a little frame to highlight the photo and stitched along the centre. I like bringing in a touch of the red and adding a bit of texture.

If you can think of something that really grates on you. Scrap it this week. Come and show us at The Studio and be in to win a prize at the end of the month.

Still on a Green Day high and I guess abit of a low today too as I know it's going to be a good while since we see them again. I should be thankful for seeing them twice during the same tour really.
But here's a couple more pics : ) and a mini video too.

I have the same problem with my dad being a smoker - the worst is long car journeys with him coz I can't escape it.

Love the page. I want to try stitching around a frame like that now. Great colours too!
