Catching Up....

Hello everyone,

Back again from the Sunny Coast, although it wasn't very sunny at all!!! It rained pretty much the whole time we were away but then again I don't think it mattered where we were in Qld, it pretty much rained everywhere.  My sisters wedding was lovely...haven't edited any the photos yet to show but just wanted to quickly pop up my photos for yesterday (!!!)...ooops!! I did take these photos on Wednesday but never had a chance to get them up.

With all the rain the the Central Highlands over the weekend and in our catchment area, it has caused our Dam to overflow (again!) and send huge amounts of water rushing down our river system (again!).  On the south-west side of town we only have 2 entrances into the town itself, one of them being this bridge and the other one, the large bridge in the photo below. When one of these bridges is closed due to flooding (and it can take weeks for it to re-open) causes huge traffic chaos.  So my reason for taking these photos was that on Wednesday, it took me 1/2hr to get Riley to school!!! Normally it takes me 10 minutes, if that!!

By late this afternoon, the waters had risen and well and truly covered the foot bridge.

Okay now on to scrappy things.....

A new month means new challenges!!!  A new sketch went up at Stuck?! Sketches.


Simple moments are the best moments... had fun playing around with some different brands of mists here....Studio Calico is the coffee coloured one and the teal coloured one is Maya Road.  Love how that one gave it more of a "paint" look.

Bo Bunny and October Afternoon papers and some Prima flowers of course!! :))

Chipboard was painted in some Shimmerz and then I added some Shimmerz sparkly!!

Hope you have a chance to give it a go....Entries are to be linked up over in the sidebar no later than 11.59pm February 29th to be in the running for one of this month's sponsor vouchers.


Have you seen who has been added to the sidebar of this challenge blog?????
