This week Sissy Sparrows released a beautiful kit called 'Hopes Float'. Its filled to the brim with gorgeous embellishments and delicious watercoloured papers. The extra packs in this release include some fabulous watercolour brushes and a set of crayon stamps that are a tonne of fun.

The kit really reminds me of summer and those delicious sorbet and gelato ice-cream ya just gotta have on a hot summery day. These pics of Tige sharing his 'i-keem' with me were a perfect fit don't you think?

This next page uses a photo I've scrapped before. It's one of my faves of Dan and I and is a reminder to me of how far we have come over the last 2 years. We've been through a very difficult patch (not uncommon I suppose in any marriage), but after lots of understanding, forgiveness and support toward each other I am ecstatic to say we are good mates again... which is always a crucial part of any marriage...well I think so...so am adding a big fat PHEWWW right here! lol 

The one thing I have learn't is that sometimes things happen out of your control. That although these upsets can be difficult to process namely because the hurt is so paramount sometimes stepping away from it, looking at it from a different perspective can be incredibly humbling. I can say observing someone else's greater battle than your own and watching them rediscover themself is an invaluable lesson in understanding acceptance, forgiveness, empathy and well the most important thing recognising that love truly does win in the end.

Once you love yourself a whole new world opens up... a much brighter and happier one thats for sure!

Anyways I thought this kit was also symbolic of how far we have come and how with just a little bit of hope you can find peace, resolution and a new found respect for any relationship thats perhaps going through a difficult time.
