I have been a little MIA lately, I had a bit of a melt down last Thursday and have been trying to pick myself up again... story goes like this. My DH and I went to the Home Hill Growers Races on Saturday, and I thought that I had all of my outfit organised, I was going to wear what I wore last year to DH work race event, so I came home from work on Thursday afternoon (after nipping out to buy just a pair of shoes to match, because I have wore the heal of the ones I was going to wear) anyway, so I come home had a shower and tried on my races outfit (that I wore only 9 months ago) to my disgust found that it was now skin tight, but that never has stopped anyone before has it. So I get it up over my hips then onto my shoulders do my zip up (very stretchy dress) then breath a sigh of relief and as I am breathing out my zip pops (arghhhh) so this is when the crisis starts, I can't get the thing off because it now doesn't fit over my head can't get the zip down because it has busted. So I get onto the phone to DH (he is still at work) "THERE IS A CRISIS AT HOME", he thinking that the place is on fire or the dog is missing, "what's wrong", "MY BEAUTIFUL CUE DRESS THAT I HAVE ONLY WORE ONCE DOESN'T FIT AND THE ZIP IS BUSTED AND I CAN'T GET IT OFF" after he laughs at me said "that's OK darling we will go tonight and buy you another one" I was a little calmer. BUT... I finally get the thing off and try on a back up dress (a girl can never have to many dresses), the backup doesn't fit also, so we went out and bought a new dress, shoes and jewelery. So much for me thinking it will be a cheap weekend. So long story short guess who is on a diet...... So this week has been very busy preparing food and doing a little exercise. Now ladies can you see my drama. But in the end we had a fantastic day at the races and I also had a couple of wins.
So for a post. I showed you earlier my take on Shelli's card she made at convention, well I have also created an 8x8 scrap layout, which my lovely ladies who came to the May workshop made.
I have used Pink Pirouette as my base, Kraft, Very Vanilla and card stock, then complimented with Close to Cocoa and Chocolate Chip ink and used the ever so versatile Versamark with my Pastels, I have also accented with Pink Pirouette in the flowers, and also cannot forget the Pretties Kit and White Grosgrain ribbon. This layout really shows off how beautiful the Friends 24-7 and matching wheel are. Love it, this is definitely my favourite set out of the new catty.
I hope you enjoy... Until next time and hopefully a few kilos lighter...
