The time has come......

So, I have decided to take a little break from designing. It is a decision that I really struggled to make, but in the end decided that it is the right one for me. At least at this point in time.
I have gotten to know some amazing people, and made some wonderful friends over the last 3 years and want to thank them for all that they have taught me during that time. Thank you also to all that supported me!

Have a good one

Happy 2010 and a freebie celebration!

Happy New Year to you all and welcome 2010!! We ended up having a relatively quiet night at a friends place, just a few drinks and a little Balderdash! Have you ever played that game? What an absolute hoot!! LOL

What better way to ring in the Scrapping New Year than with a freebie, right? Well how about a whole bunch of co-ordinating freebies, that will make up one awesome kit? Start at the beginning of the hop so that you don’t miss any, then make your way to each blog where more delicious goodies await you. Make sure you leave a comment at each and every blog along the way because one lucky hopper will be chosen at random from one of the blogs to receive a $25 gift certificate to the DSO store! Whoot!

We skipped lunch while we were travelling, so decided to go eat early, and just for something different, had mexican. And mmmmmmm, was it good?!?!?

By the time we got back to the room after dinner, the sunset was just beautiful, so whipped out the camera and snapped a few of the sunset and the view…Brown County 30Brown County 32Brown County 31Brown County 07

Out and about in the USA

Hi everyone! Well I thought I would give you all a little update on what has been going on while I've been here in the US.
Bunny has been taking me all over the place, and we have been worn out!
Here we are are the infamous 'Hell'-mart! Really it wasn't that bad, and we ended up spending less than she normally would, so maybe I'm a good shopping influence! LOL

For Bunny's special day on Friday, we went out for a girls day!
We got our nails done......

And we went out for lunch at Bunny's favourite place to eat, ElBracero's

It was so funny,we were half way through eating when all the little mexican waiters come out singing and carrying a bowl of icecream, which they then proceeded to smear all over her face!!!
She was clapping and cheering like a 6 year old!

And then I got a turn with the hat....

And then Bunny insisted we document just how full you get eating at this place. This is me, about to be sick cause I've eaten so much food!


Then Saturday we decided we were going to cut and colour Bunny's hair.
Here is the before shot..... is the during shot.....

....and you will have to stay tuned for the after shot, haven't taken that one yet.

Yesterday we decided to go for a drive around and see what we could see.
Here are a few from the park...

OMG and here is the nose tree!! It looks just like a nose, and Bunny thought it needed a little pickin'! LOL

Tomorrow we are heading out to the 'big city' to gettin a little more shopping, should be a good day!
