SOUS # 11

Wow, I've made it, by the skin of my teeth... Mr McLinky closes in a few hours, thank goodness Australia is ahead of the rest of the world!!!!....

Here is my take on the sketch over at SOUS

The sketch, by Liz Qualman....

Papers are Bo Bunny "Abbey Road", brads are Bo Bunny, Flowers - Prima, Lulu and Kaiser....

Flourish @ 3.5" - Home Decor

PRECIOUS @ 1" - Gypsy Font (shadow)
x @ 0.58" - Gypsy Font (shadow)

2 @ 1" - Gypsy Font (shadow)

Nearly didn't get this one finished in time, what with WORK (ugh), and the heat, yes, toooooooo hot!!!

We emigrated to Australia to get away from the freezing temperatures in Scotland, and for the most part I love the weather here....

However, usually during January and February, the temp hits the waaaaaaaay toooooo hot for comfort zone. Fortunately, these temps only last a couple of days at a time. I think we hit 43 degrees on Monday and Tuesday (must Google that to see what it is in Fahrenheight (is that how you spell it?)) Anybody know?
Very uncomfortable, and not scrapbooking friendly - glue melts....

And, no, I don't have air con in yet. What with this being a brand new house, and finances being spent on more essential items for scrapping (only kidding), air con and pool are going in next month (too late, I know).
Anyway, this photo of me with two of my adorable granddaughters was taken on New Year's Day. We spent the day at Caversham Wildlife Park here in Perth, where DGD # 1 was able to feed the kangaroos and met her first Joey (baby kangaroo), he was adorable, jumping all over the place like a coiled spring - or a Slinky (remember them girls). Will scrap those photo's later....

So, if you get a moment hop (!!!!) on over to SOUS and see what the design team have done (wonderful) and the other girls (amazing)

Til next time....

Your LO is just fantastic. What beautiful colors, Jane...and I loved reading your comments... Here in AZ we are in the middle of winter, although AZ winters are mild. No snow here in Phoenix but we can drive about 2 hours and be knee deep in blizzards.. We've had 3 days of rain.

Drop Dead Gorgeous layout - it would have won!

109 degrees and no air conditioning???? What? Are you nuts??? We have that kind of heat here every summer - but we all live in a/c. Wow.

I hope it cools off at night, at least?
