Layout: 42

Somehow the last half of May and all of June has zipped by in a big frenetic blur. And somewhere in all of that mess, I turned 42! How can that possibly be? Surely, I can’t be a day over 26. But, then that would have meant I became a parent before the age of 15, which is most definitely not the case. LOL So I guess I must accept reality. :)

It’s odd – when I was younger, I always knew off the top of my head exactly how old I was, and it felt as if that was an intrinsic part of who I was. Now age just seems to be some abstract number floating around in my peripheral vision, flitting out of view if I turn towards it. These days, if someone asks me how old I am, I often actually have to stop and think about it and do the math. The other day I even had a hard time summoning up what the actual current year was, giving me no starting point from which to calculate. Perhaps the first stages of senility? LOL Nah, more likely just a result of too much chaos, mixed in with a little fatigue. :)

Anyway, the layout below includes a quick self-portrait I snapped on said 42nd birthday. :) It’s using PixelWorks’ latest fabulousness, a yummy little vampire-inspired kit called “Irrevocably In Love”.  As you can see, it can be used for much more though! :)

If you want to know more of what I’ve been up to over the last month or so, you can check out my P365 blog. I’m still a couple of weeks behind, but I’m working on it. I picked up a nasty head cold or something that has fairly effectively sidelined me for the last week or so, leading to many extra hours in bed, and a very mushy brain and non-existent energy level when I’m actually vertical.  Hopefully, I’ll be able to shake this nonsense and get back up to speed soon!

I love that layout, how the flower and mesh are tucked in over the photo and under the frame. So great!
