Keeping It Simple

 Sorry I've been a bit AWOL lately (definitely not been blogging every week as I wanted to) but to be honest it's been a rough year.  I've had a cough since January.  I've had various tests which were clear & medicines which didn't help (& as my job involves LOTS of talking this has made it worse).  Now the doctors have referred me cos they don't know what else to do.  This is on top of the fact that I need a hip replacement op, I've been putting it off but the last few months it has got progressively worse & now they've said I might not be able to have my op because of the cough.  So as you can imagine I'm a bit fed up & to top it all my mojo went missing too!  That is why my creation for the new All Dressed Up Anything Goes challenge is very simple.  I used Wendy's fabulous Shoes image which I coloured with chalk & just added a crochet flower & a couple of buttons & put it in an old frame I had :o)

I'm really sorry to hear you're having such an awful year Tracey :(. I can only imagine how fed up you must be with it all. I do hope they sort your cough and hip out soon for you.
What a lovely idea to make the shoe image into a picture, it would fabulous on a bedroom wall and I love the addition of the buttons and cute flower. A wonderful creation! Hang on in there, Debra x
