This is my latest offering which has no gallery to go to!!! Its my Ellie with her eyes wide open. Again I feel I have to remind you that Ellie has photophobia and has always got a hat or dark glasses on. It's so wonderful to get a picture ogf her smiling with her eyes looking so happy and blue!
I love this little girl too, too much.

Enjoy a picture of my sweet Ellenor and yeah, sure - its gonna be scrapped. Man, I love this kid more than anyone has ever loved anyone in the world. Infact - all the love that has ever been given or received times a million - in fact times infinity. Thats how much I love her. She make my heart ache sometimes. xx

Page 1 & 2 - Kirsty and Jane
Page 3 & 4 - Dyan and the plot to steal the brain
Page 5 & 6 - Taking the brain and replacing it with pebbles chalk inks
page 7 & 8 - Splitting the brain - pics of each of us with Dyan
Jane Dean and I share a passion of all things altered - namely because of Dyan at Art from the Heart. I wanted to cheer dear Dyan up last week and got permision from Jane to use some of her photos to make up a collagey story of how both Jane and I steal Dyan's Brilliant brain. I now own 50% of Dyans brains but I still dont feel brilliant. Not even slightly more creative than the norm. Maybe its faulty. Perhaps its not her brains I need - I prolly just need to be Dyan.
Ill upload the pictures in order for you to read for yourself - you can enlarge the pictures by pressing on the blue and orange arrowy thingy when you have clicked on the pictures.
I had immense fun doing this and I believe Tim Holtz had a wee look too - fame at last. That man conned £25 out of me on Sunday (alcohol inks no less). I would love to be a penny behind his bank balance.

Here we are on our night out. The waitress took this picture and chopped off poor janes head (sorry hun). Starting from the left we have dougie, karen, anna, sue, claire, moi, donna, froooty soooo, kathie and jayne. Profiterole mountains, confessions of explicit candidness and howls and tears of laughter describes the best night out I have had in yonks. And although I would never host a retreat again, it was a good learning curve for me. I will of course go on lots of retreats held by others becuase I too love to learn, learn and learn. SLURP!

Im just popping into work to put finishing touches to this weekends retreats prodgies. My fingers are itching and my mind is whirring like crazy with things I have to make and do before the month is out. Im writing it all down so I don't forgetted!!
**CELEB ALERT** I gots an email from the one and only Ms Downey last night and after I had been resucitated from the shock and honour I replied with some conviction that she should come to Bonanza. Who has got £2000 for the honour?

a. Im quite resilient (even though Im not extremely happy about the sitch)
b. Working on my own allows me to burp and swear at my leisure (oh, I do that anyway!!)
c. I can come and go as I please
d and e and f.
Anyway, Belle and I had comfy couch snuggles tonight as I promised us both a whole 2 hours of un-interupted scrumpsh with her. Generally I am about in the house either cleaning, hoovering, washing up (ok only sometimes washing up as we have a dishwasher). I never sit solidily with Ellie for more that an hour as duties dictate otherwise and ok, Im on UKS or doing stuff on the my website from time to time. So two hours was a treat and a half for both of us although she did keep saying when am I going to leave her in peace? Can't flamin win at times huh?
She has been in bed for two hours and Ive been doing up a paper bag book for the retreat and finished off a layout I had started at Anna's. For those that saw it at the crop can I just say - erm, its nothing like you saw it last. I have this weird urge to bung as much on a page as I can and I hate seeing space. The last layout I did had so much space and Im literally itching to get some more stuff on it. So when I upload tomorrow, don't let it come as a shock - it's a Kirsty thing!
