Lisa-Jane – LOL!

Sometimes you’ve got to laugh at a situation or you’ll cry.  And sometimes you have to embrace the ridiculousness of a situation by using poo emojis.  And some cameras from the pre-cut ‘Camera Mesh’ cut file.

My brother was really ill in the Spring with a problem with his liver (he’ll have the issue for life but it’s now under control) and he was more yellow than I believed a person could be.  We kept his spirits up by sending him texts of lots of emojis, Bart Simpson, highlighter pens, and our favourites, the Minions.  My niece and I went to visit him while I was in my air-cast and my Dad happened to be there (in between waiting for more heart surgery) so we really did look a sight together and I don’t think my poor niece will ever recover from the chaos and shouting and general mis-behaviour of when we all get together.

LOL - Lisa-Jane - LOL!

The Simple Stories Emoji Love collection was the perfect ridiculous collection for this ridiculous situation and I used a challenge idea from Shimelle at the Go-Go-Getaway for the placement.  The idea was to have the page split into two halves with a line of embellishments down the centre-ish.

I had some camera die-cuts left over from the ‘Camera Mesh’ cut file (available in pre-cut or download options) so I backed them with some of the small papers.  You can really stretch a cut file this way.  I created a strip using a mix of the cameras and some chipboard and stickers from the collection.  I don’t normally journal but this was a story that I didn’t want to forget so with the journalling on one side and the photo on the other it balances nicely.  To finish with I added some enamels dots from the shop.  Sometimes the every day stories are more important than the events like birthdays and holidays.  This photo was near the beginning of a LOT of hospital visits for multiple people in our family so it definitely deserves a place in my album.

With love and colour

COVID 19 UPDATE – Unfortunately I am currently unable to process any further physical cut file orders for at least the next 2 weeks.  The logistics of dealing with the new and necessary restrictions, while also homeschooling my children and caring for my Dad, mean that it is becoming more and more difficult and the restrictions may even become tighter as we seek to control this awful situation.  Obviously I’m keeping a close watch on the news so that I can start processing and posting again as soon as possible.  You can still browse and order but they will not go out in the post until there is a further update.

Digital orders can still be purchased and instantly downloaded as normal and remain unaffected by the restrictions.  However, there is a slight glitch on the website that means some devices are duplicating items as they are added to the basket.  You can remove them in the final screen and I can obviously organise speedy refunds for any that slip through the net.

Thank you so much for your continued support for Pretty My Page.  Every order and message is so important to me but even more so now.  Wishing you all health and happiness x
