My word today is Laugh

A close up of my "laughter corner" LOL. We 'scrapped' these letters at a scrapbook convention and I just had to hang them up above a panting that my mum did. Mum loved to laugh, and its a constant reminder that laughter is the best medecine. The poppies are so joyful they also make me laugh!!!

Took this shot again in the dark this morning and oops I did get a bit of 'glare' on the wall.

LOL, just tok this pic for my post on "It's a Creative World". I bought some Pizza boxes to store some of my stash !!!

My word today is Stones

A small collection of stones collected over the years. I love to just touch and hold them...
May I say a big thankyou to all of you lovely folk on HSMS. I have been selling my home and packing up for about 3 months. Just recently I heard that the sale had fallen through and we start all over again. You and the designers at IACW have been my anchor. I'd love for you to visit "Its a creative world" and see what we are doing over there. I normally post on a Monday, but the awesome design team have something exciting every day.
Thanks again from Di the newbie photographer inspired by you...

As it is 6.00 am it is still pitch black outside...Normally I get the flash reflected in my pics so think I must be learning and improving !!
