Love these girls.
I've meet some incredibly cool ladies through scrapbooking. but these ladies take the cake. And the chocolate. And the diet coke. And my adhesive when I'm not looking. LOL. I must make the effort to find my way south, pack into a bach with 8 other fabulous ladies, scream at the olympics, throw myself off random sand dunes and play murder mystery games after just a little to drink, more often. Now to get the pics into layouts! (Pics actually taken byTrina McClune...)
One of my fav discoveries for the weekend.... Huntly and Palmers cream crackers Custard Squares. Just like the real thing. Seriously, did everyone else know about this?! I'm a custard square fan from waaaay back - I don't buy them often but now I can make my own! In fact Braden and I made a batch already! lol. Sometimes it is sad what makes me happy LOL.
I'm slowly getting myself organised after the weekend away.. I'm overdue in congratulating my fab SIL Lesley Cooper for her runner-up position for MMM. I said to my hubby how cool it was that Lesley had won the runner up position but how frustrating it must also be... you know... so close yet so far.... and Paul reminded me that I also won a runner up position the year before I won. I had forgotten! I even argued with him for a minute that I didn't. I remember now though. I remember calling Paul over to see the list of winners on the screen and saying to him "Next year that's mine". Looks like perserverence paid off. Next year, Lesley!!
A dilemma - I'm trying to organise my family Guy Fawkes day ahead of time.. but the 5th November falls on the Wednesday. What weekend do you think most people will celebrate the Guy Fawkes day? When do Fireworks go on sale? So when do I organise it for? The 2nd or the 9th? I'd love to hear everyone's opinion. Help!
A layout to share - another one from the Aussie Scrap Source blog. The challenge was to use clusters, torn, ripped, distressed, lots of different manufacturers and the theme had to be fun. There isn't much that is more fun than spending time with this special chickie :o) Trina took the pics at the weekend, I printed them out on a handy tiny little printer thing and scrapped the layout. Fun!
Summing up for the week.
* One of the hardest things I did this week - choose winners from the SketchBook Olympics gallery. (Oh and I got my 14yr old Tattoo fixed - I clearly don't handle pain as well as I did when I was 21... )
*One of the things that made me happiest this week - Custard Squares. A concrete Driveway. Wallpaper tomorrow. The Kindy trip to Beijing. "I love you more lots".
*What I wished I had got around to this week - Solving the Guy Fawkes dilemma. Washing the outside windows. A thousand assignments. Read the E-Book from ScrapScene. (Gotta do that... must make time).
*What I'm looking forward to this weekend - Time with my boys. Cuddles with my girl. Tidying up the section. Just being a home-body. I've got lots of travelling coming up. I need to get myself in credit with those hugs :o)
