Uni life!

Being a student nurse is a mix up of both fun and a challenge! Uni days are much more self taught than I ever expected, with pre reading, then a lecture, followed by a seminar and work at home. The assignments are hard going but then you wouldn't expect a nursing degree to be easy! 
My current assignment is about the free radical theory of ageing and how it links to the digestive and respiratory systems, finding articles is much tougher than you might think! 
I'm also revising A&P for an exam we take in Oxford, prior to that I have a practical exam on psychological status and observations.
I can't believe how fast time has flown from beginning this course! The two placements I have had so far have been fabulous! I have met both amazing patients and staff, the experiences I am having are life changing, I'm like a sponge....absorbing lots of information!
Wish me luck with my exams! I'll be back soon

My favourite deputy!

Whilst I took a study break today, I scrapped another Mini-moon LO! Firstly, I was inspired by the like for ever Sunday challenge, this week it was out of my comfort zone but I went with it...
Firstly, I haven't printed any small wedding photos, so chose a 6x4 which I trimmed slightly! Woody was such a laugh! As I'm rubbish at cutting up patterned papers, I tend to scrap them whole or slightly trim them, I decided to cut up a Disney comic book I purchased from a cool book store in Brighton! The comic strip would become my second paper...
I then couldn't decide on a title & google searched some of Woody's Toy Story 'sayings'. I took out one of my inky shaving brushes....I have lots of different colours! ...then started writing some Woody sayings on the page.
Initially, this was going be a background but I decided not to put a title over it or write across it. 
I also added some ink splatters... that just so happened to come out Mickey head shaped, a must on any Disney Layout, here it is... my take on the sketch!
I included the date, it's stamped underneath the photo. I added a tag. Instead of ribbons, I used stars! The shape of Woody's Deputy badge! Thanks for stopping by.
Catch up soon xo

April already ?!?!

Where is this year going? It's really flying by I realise I haven't posted since Christmas day! Eeeek! I'm such a bad blogger ...I hope people see this..."Hello!!???... anybody there?!?!?" Haha!
To keep you all updated with life here in wonderful Wiltshire, here I go! I am still in love with Disney! My awesome friend Martin went to NYC and brought me back these cool tsum tsums! I love em!
I have tried to do as much scrapping as I possibly can! The only thing I'm scrapping is our Wedding and mini-moon! Although I'm pleased to say it's coming on...
Paris is one of our favourite places, it's just so beautiful!
For this LO I used a French Disney comic, then a parks map stamped and cut out for the title! It is busy, busy, busy just the way I like my LO's....well, sometimes... it may be bright and loud but it follows my Wedding Album RULES...
...every LO MUST INCLUDE something gold and/or a heart! I haven't done many LO's but getting the like forever kits has certainly inspired me to scrap more! I LOVE this kit! As you know I stopped my Studio Calico kit and stopped Project Life two years ago when I started my education again, I miss them both very much but studying is priority at the minute
We have enjoyed many 'family' days too! This year is milestone birthdays and important years for both of them. As Lolly leaves college and Cal leaves school...
...time flies far too fast!
I am currently having an Easter break but I am loving my uni placement at a local Walk-in-Centre! I cannot wait to become a NURSE! I'm doing lots of assignment work and exam revision at the minute! Not long to go before my exam in Oxford! Aaaargh! I hate EXAMS!
Before we know about it summer will be here! I have no plans at the minute but will look forward to some family and scrapbooking time!
Catch up soon xo
