THIS is where I was this weekend.
And THIS house is only one third of the entire venue.
GoGo getaway 6 was a rip roaring success and even though I don't think my feet touched the floor, I had a fantastic time.
Ive yet to take a daylight pic of my layout of the class I taught but I wanted to show you a few snips of pics of the beautiful backdrops I had as part of my photo shoot duties at the event. Ive also been playing with filters for the photos and so far, the results have been brilliant!
No filter on this one but almost a SOOC image. Look at those lush daffs!
This is a buttery overlay, just one simple twist on a photo makes it look dreamy
This is a muted filter which create a creamy finish
This is a wispy haze finish
And this is coffee cream!
This is just a few of the seven hundred pics I took. I was very very busy. Buuuuuuut it was worth it
Now I want to draw your attention to something VERY VERY important.
Please spread the word to your freinds and other parents and teachers. I cannot relay how incredibly MAJOR this little bloggy bit is.
So, you all know my girl is photophobic and is struggling at school, don't you? You know she is this determined little thing; the little voice who has to work double hard to get half the recognition. Well let me tell you something that could help your little kiddy.
GET THEM TO HAVE A COLOUR DYSLEXIA TEST.
It is the best thing you could ever do if they are struggling with reading, writing, concentration, letters back to front, eye strain, distractions and lack of confidence.
It is by far the best £50 we have ever spent because tonight Ellie took the test and although she is NOT strictly colour dyslexic, the test did prove that she should wear blue tints on her lenses. I can't believe how significant this test is, especially as she has to strain, visually, in both forced and natural day light.
Here she is at the opticians, trying out the blue lenses. Bug eyes?!!!! Look at how juicy those kissy lips look, too!
She will, without a doubt, get to see the world how she is supposed to.... without squinting or shading her eyes. She will be able to enjoy her vision which has tainted her view on the world; one that often seems like a big, watery blur. And she has had to suffer that for 15 shitty years, poor kid. Breaks my heart.
If anyone watched the documentary about Kara Tointon's struggle with dyslexia and how a colour dyslexia test has changed her life by way of reading, then you ought to understand how this test will change Ellies life. Watch it here - its in 5 parts. I strenuously beg you to watch them (an hour in total). I honestly think every parent and every teacher in the WORLD should watch it so that kids who struggle may get the opportunity to have this test and be saved.
This is such a breakthough for my Belles and well worth fifty lousy quid.
Let me know your thoughts x
PS: Stampers, have you seen THIS?!!!
