Sleep Challenged!!



I have been missing folks because I have the lovely Miss Lilly staying for 5 days, starting last Saturday. Unfortunately for her,  she has not been so well. Her little tummy has been naughty and her teeth are on the move, so she has been pale and flushed in turn. I feel so sorry for her as there really is so little I can do except give her Calpol and cuddles. The Calpol has been carefully measured but the cuddles have been unlimited.

Sleep has not been easy for her...and thus not a lot for me either. I look a fright...I am not the prettiest picture in the box at the best of times, but at the moment I could audition for one of the witches in Macbeth and get the role with flying colours...just on looks!! I would only need to learn how to cackle and I would be ideal!! I just hope that Lilly feels better soon, poor little mite or we will both be basket cases!!

But, I have managed to rock her off to sleep and so I decided to have a go and see if I could get a post done. So far this week I have been too tired to post or too busy.  So here's hoping her sleep last's for a little while longer.

So its just a little freebie from me tonight, two vintage stamps. I hope some of you can find a use for them. And check out the wonderful layouts below..they are gorgeous!!

You can download the Vintage Stamps here

All but one fo these these wonderful layouts was made with my new kit Simple Things. The layouts are beautiful ladies thank you for sharing them!


Leaonna has made such great use of white space in her layout..the eye is just drawn to that great photo!! A wonderful page Leaonna!!


The patchwork effect that Linda made for the background works really well and look at that photo it just pops out of the frame at you...great extraction Linda!!


Look at Kim's gorgeous page...I love the angle the photo is set and the flower clusters add that extra touch. An other great use of white space too!! brilliant!


Bina made this terrific layout with Cens Loft blog freebies (check the posts and download them) and look at the variety of things she has all hangs together beautifully. The date tab and the torn paper are clever little touches and look at that photograph...that takes flexibility and skill!! Fantastic page!


The clustering around the frame and the striped panel make this page standout other great job Linda!! You have made this kit look great!


These flowers are lovely and the quote is so true! Love it, a soft and gentle page, so apt for the photos. Wonderful layout Kim!


Last but not least is an other one from Linda. look at the radiating word art!! It's a fun page full of nice little touches...marvelous!


Well, I hear a little voice calling me, it may be from a little one but the voice is BIG!! Believe it or not, it has taken me 6 hours to get this post small bits!! I had forgotten how much attention a sick little one takes!! So I take my hat off to all mothers who still have young ones!!

I hope to see you tomorrow but that's a new day and as I still have Lilly..who knows!! I'm off to find 2 matchsticks for my eyelids!! Lol!

Hi June!
Have you tried Lavender essential oil to help you both to sleep? It is very gentle but effective. I use it by putting a few drops on my pillow.(has never stained for me but test small area first!) or in a burner in the bedroom. You can put it directly on your skin also, but again test first esp for Lilly, because everyone is different. And use pure essential oil, not room fragrancer. It is calming and also sterilises the air which is great in a sick-room, and is anti-inflammatory when applied direct. Love your comments about Macbeth witch, know the feeling!
