A Wee Bit Serious and ALOT of Fun!!!

~So yesterday I did 4 layouts, yes i have been busy!!!! My first layout is a quite serious one, and it's also my layout for the challenge over on Punk Rock Scrappers, which is to introduce your bad ass self, the other 3 are a little bit more fun!!!

~Pieces Of Me
~My layout for the Punk Rock Scrappers challenge is one about the illness I have, regular readers here will know I have a long term illness but will also know I have never actually given any more details, so that's what this layout does!!! The journalling reads.....
~ In 2007 I was diagnosed with Dissociative Identity Disorder (previously known as multiple personality disorder), which means I have 3 other distinct personalities, each with their own morals, attitiudes and opinions, this obviously makes my life very different however I am slowly learning to live with the illness but that is something that takes alot of time and patience........
~This layout was obviously quite a difficult one to do, but I'm glad i've done it. If you have any questions or would like more information on DID then please check out the Healthy Place website. I used American Crafts, Mesh and some jigsaw pieces!!!!

~Tuesday's Child
~This is a layout using American Crafts, Die cut letters using the slice, and some random embellishments. The photo is my nephew Oscar on the day he was born.........
~Best Friend
~ I used purple cardstock, jenni bowlin PP, ribbon, AC rubons, slice diecut alpha and flower, and some dottie ann. The quote says "The loneliest woman in the world is the one without a best friend", and the photo is of me and jay at the beach (well our shadows anyway).........
~You Gotta Love Sealions
~I used K&Co Letters, sassafrass pp, cardstock, magic mesh, AC rubons, doodlebug rubons, and some lace!!!! The photo is of some sealions in Malta a few years ago!!!
~So that's all for now,
~Vicki xxx

And the other LO's are gorgeous too, love the pink lace especially on the Sea Lions page :)
