Yep, decided to follow just about everyone else I know who blogs…and changed it to white. Can’t seem to find any interesting templates – all a bit ho-hum, but then again – the CONTENT should be the most attractive element in a blog!!! (hehe, just being cheeky)

ANZAC DAY today. Another march from the High School to the memorial. They’ve changed the location this year. It used to be so close to us, but since they’ve widened Settlement Rd, the noise and traffic problems were beginning to get on everyone’s nerves (think of the disaster last year…yikes). Much better at Walton Bridge. Wouldn’t know however. Michael took the boys and I stayed home, put 2 loads of washing on before the ceremony finished and I met up with them at the cafe. Poor Pramesh was not prepared for the influx of people. He was a man possessed at the coffee machine.

Managed to finish ANOTHER layout. What’s going on???

Am I peaking too soon before the Retreat?????????

Will I REALLY have to spend the entire time at the Poolside Cafe??? (Belinda!!!! where are you?? oh, bring Kerry with you!! and my roomie can come too…….Vicki!!!!!!!!!)

Anyhoo…..this one is for the COLOUR COMBO CHALLENGE at FOREVER ALWAYS. It really was a “challenge” with CHOCOLATE RED AND PINK!!! Thankfully I had a conniption a while back and bought some pink pp (what was I thinking???)
I’ve been channeling the very sweet Steph Devlin with the napkin/modpodge bizzo on this layout.
The photo is of me and the chikkie with the golden larynx – Kelly HD. God love her!! I really love this photo at Kelly’s 40th. She really REALLY loves “Talk like a Pirate” Day. (can you tell??)

I have THREE more challenges to finish this week. That’s on the TO DO list and I’ve already printed out the photos so no turning back. Although I’m a bit “iffy” on one and might shaft it. I do have the Retreat to pack for … and print photos for … and all the other weekly housekeeping (bleh!!) merde. I can feel some “Simple Scrapbooking” vibes coming on …

Mum turns 70 tomorrow so my Inkredible class has been postponed till May (can’t remember when exactly). The camera battery is charged, the flash card is empty, the grog is in the fridge and the platters are on order. This will be a very emotional day for everyone as it’s 5 months since Dad passed away. Boy oh boy. I have NO IDEA what will happen (there’s always “one” in every family, right?!). Hopefully the kids will keep our hearts and minds in a good place.

    I really love the white look Gigi.Great layout too – you are on a roll aren’t you. Peeking too early? Mmmm…I have thought the same about myself. I seem to be scrapping all of the ‘good’ pictures that I had planned to take to the retreat. I’m afraid that when I get there I’ll be all scrapped out – yet on the other hand I’m worried if I stop now, my mojo will go. What’s a gal to do?Mmmmm *insert big eyed smiley here* ‘Poolside Cafe’…yep – we’re there! ;)Belindaxx
