One of my layouts has been published and is on page 76 >>
This layout was the result of being given a challenge to use a piece of red mesh on a page. End result? A very girly layout >>
The journalling reads “I don’t have a sister but i understand sisterhood. These girls are my strong, smart and beautiful sisters. I am truly blessed having these girls in my life.”
I have grown up with most of these girls [from my mum’s side of the family] and two of them have come into my life courtesy of my brothers.
This is my favourite photo of cousin Cathy. This was taken at her 21st birthday and I snapped it whilst we were doing the conga. Cathy is a primary school teacher – kids absolutely adore her. And she has a beautiful singing voice.
Cousins Jennifer and Angela (sister of Cathy) – photo taken during Jen’s hen’s night. Jennifer, a mum of one, is one talented photographer and Angela, a mum of 2 boys, works as a risk management lawyer.
Next is Michelle, myself, Rebecca and Maria. Michelle and i were flower girls at her sister’s wedding. (Her sister is my aunt). Michelle was 3 and i was 7. This has been a long standing cherished friendship. Michelle, a mum of two, is a social worker. And one crazy chick – i mean that in the nicest possible way.
Rebecca and Maria are my sisters-in-law. My brothers have given me the best sisters that anyone could ask for. Rebecca is a mum of one and currently studying part-time. Maria works at South Australia Police (SAPOL).
Jen with her sister Sophie. Sophie is in marketing, has a way with words (she is one of the funniest people i know) and loves her sport.
Michelle and me –
Cousin Angie, the youngest of the group, and quite a character, is a uni student doing a double degree and works part-time.
Beautiful, caring, smart, funny, loyal, crazy, sweet – there aren’t enough words to describe these girls but I love them lots and always.
“If i could give you one gift my friend, I would give you the ability to see yourself as others see you, so that you would know how very special you are. We’ve shared so much laughter, so many tears. We’re a spiritual bond that grows stronger each year. We’re not sisters by births, but we knew from the start something put us together to be sisters by heart.”
