52Q ~ Q17 and Q19

Q17 - What is your superpower?

I've never thought much about having a superpower, but moving has meant that I couldn't find my tablets for a couple of days and that meant that my sleeping was all over the place. Some days I'd be awake for 20 or so hours at a time, but once I started back on them, I'd want to sleep for England. As long as I'm taking them every day, my sleeping settles into a great pattern and I can happily sleep for the recommended 8 hours and also at night, which for anyone who knows me, will know that that is a big thing!!

Here's my LO done using the free Little Monsters digi kit from Daisy Trail.

Q19 - What keeps me sane?

Not so long ago, I would easily have said that a bar of chocolate certainly helped keep me sane. Nowadays it's a different story and as chocolate just doesn't have the same effect, it's more a case of 'who' not 'what' keeps me sane. My Mum, bless her, is a star. If I'm feeling down, fed up or ready to scream, a simple call to her puts all the wrongs right (or if she can't right the wrong, she helps me make sense of it all) and makes life seem bearable again. She's lovely is my Mum and if I could, I'd lend her to you all to help you through your times of wanting to scream and shout too.

My LO was done using the free Playground digi kit also by Daisy Trail.

Try It On Tuesday - Guest Designer Slot

 I'm honoured to be asked to Guest Design for Try It On Tuesday. I was given the task of travelling back in time to the 70s and using inspiration from that era to create something to help inspire you all to join in. I was lucky in that I was a child in the 70s and remember quite a bit from that time (especially the children's TV!!), but I've used Saturday Night Fever as my inspiration for my digi-card. I think I've used elements from Shabby Princess together with an old, but free Dottie digi stamp to create it too. If you can't read the writing on the slide, it says 

 "You've gotta' dance like there's nobody watching, 
 Love like you've never been hurt, 
 Sing like there's nobody listening, 
 And live like it's heaven on earth."
