I have been lurking around here, for SOOOOOO long, and you guys are all so creative! I actually felt pressured to make a GREAT SUPER AMAZING first post, but I was like: what the heck!
I just wanted to show you this 'thing' (not sure how you call it, but we call it a collage Cheesy) made of like a thousand magazines, glue and scissors.
I made it for a friend from my my mother, who's addicted to alcohol. It's such a sad story, because she is really heavily addicted to alcohol, but she denies it all the time, and doesn't want to go to rehab AT ALL... She kept her job, because her boss and colleagues thought is was her only distraction form the alcohol. She had to be fired as she turned yellow because of the alcohol, and she couldn't go round working in a hospital looking all yellow and stuff... And she keeps on loosing friends my mom told me.
When I was little, I used to make a lot of drawings for her, she has two of them hanging in her toilet. So I thought I'd chear her up, and make something different as a drawing, to show her how everybody should live their lives, including her!
I made it a while back, but my mother wanted me to be there to when she gave it to her. But we were very busy, etc. etc.
But not long ago, she had to be taken up in hospital, because things were starting to look serious. So my mom told me that she wanted to give it now... before it's too late  Cry
So my mom gave it to her, and she thought it was so sweet... My mom made some copies before she gave it too, because she liked it so much.
It's a scan of a copy, so you can't see it that well, but it sparkles in some places. And the blue part is stuck on very messy, as I finished the flowery part (which also includes an undie with flower pattern  Grin) and then though it might be nice to use some blue at the top, or it would be like to much patterns and stuff...
Whatever, here it is:

Please correct my English if it's wrong, originally, I'm from Holland  Smiley

I love this, it's so pretty, you did a really neat job, I've never been so good at collages.

It's beautiful! I like the flip-flop!

 have a friend who used to be addicted to alcohol.  She went to rehab several times, and hospital (also for depression) but kept going back to drinking.  Last time, she went to rehab for 3 months- she didn't think it was long enough really- and had a relapse after she left.  As far as I know, she's not drinking at the moment, but that doesn't mean the battle is over.
