This week's challenge for Embellished Idol was to scrap a page about either (a) the five things we'd like to do before we die, or (b) five places we'd like to travel to before we die. This is what I made:
This layout came out very ethereal and wistful - like a "head in the clouds" feel. In addition to the gorgeous Collage Press papers, I've used calico and feathers. I should have taken some close-ups.
My five things I dream of doing are:
1. Hot air ballooning
2. Drive a convertible with the top down - a porsche or an MG preferably ;)
3. Buy art by a famous artist - and, no, it wouldn't need to be the Picasso pictured
4. Master yoga and meditation - I would love to have a yoga studio right down in the back of the garden, but given that I can barely make it through a beginners yoga class, I have a long way to go on this goal!
5. Rent a villa in Tuscanny - for a couple of months during the European summer
Aaaah. A girl's gotta dream.
In the meantime my today consisted of a sleep-in (I so needed it!), a visit to a friend's house for coffee and mud-cake while the kids played, then shopping for birthday presents, then shopping for groceries, then vaccuuming, then stripping and making the beds, then tidying up, then cooking tea, then bathing Jamie and getting him ready for bed.
Thump. There's my reality ;)
