WOOHOO!!! Leanne, Mel and I will be off to spend the day with Heidi Swapp... a whole day of classes and inspiration and we can't wait!!!! We're counting down the days already... Who else is going? Hope to see you there!
So I guess I should do a quick update for the rest of the week too...
I had invited Leanne & Mel around for a cuppa on Thursday morning so Wednesday I got busy in the kitchen in preparation. I was pretty proud of myself because I ended up baking some coconut jam biscuits and apple crumble slice (both from scratch!) and some mini cupcakes. (Paul will tell you... I very rarely ever bake... it's just not my thing... and usually if I do it's a quick packet mix... I know it sounds terrible but I'm just not one of those people that enjoy cooking! LOL) Here's a pic...
Then Leanne arrived Thursday morning with this amazing home-baked sponge cake!!!! I have to tell you it tasted even better than it looks... sooo YUM!
Mel arrived soon after and we had a lovely morning full of great conversation, laughter, drinking & too much eating!! I just love these girls... they are such great company!! (You know the crazy thing is we took photos of the food and not ourselves!? How silly was that?! Have to fix that next time...)
It was the most beautiful day here on the Gold Coast today! The sun was shining, it was nice and warm with a slight cool breeze... so we took the kids down to the park at Burleigh Beach. They love it there! They wore themselves out playing on the swings, the slide, running around and playing with the other kids. We had fish & chips for lunch then went for a walk along the beach. It was so nice to get out into the fresh air and enjoy the outdoors for a change! I'm looking forward to the next few months if today was anything to go by!
I haven't done a lot of scrapping this week, but I did throw this one together the other night using scraps that I've had sitting around for a LONG time. (I was feeling all inspired after visiting Janelle's & Helen's blogs. Thanks girls... you know I love your work!) Still not sure if I really like it though! LOL Paul's comment when he saw it was "Oh that's not too bad!" LOL Maybe the pink background wasn't the best choice.... Oh well! It's done now... but I do love the photos!
I didn't realise my 100th post was going to be so long! Sorry about that! PLEASE don't forget to leave a comment and say hi to be in the draw for the RAK!!! Enjoy your week everyone!
PS. Thankyou so much again Mardi for my happy mail this week!!!! You really are the sweetest!!! xx
