Meanwhile, we leave in the very wee hours of tomorrow morning for a trip to the beach! We are going with the kids and Shirley to the same resort we visited in Mexico last year, and I don't think I need to tell you how much I am looking forward to it!
In the meantime, it's Friday! Time for a new challenge over on the Festive Friday Blog... this week's it's time for a theme challenge:
When I chose this theme, I was picturing the fifties... swanky cocktail parties, poofy skirts and bright, bold colours.
October Afternoon goodies fit the bill perfectly for me! I love this old image - ones like this make Shirley cry out with delight because they remind her of her childhood (so I knew I was in the right era... *wink*)
And I LOVE the stamp set that was included with the Make it Merry mini-album kit I bought last year... it's one of those sets that just *works*, you know?
So that's what I have for you, but head over to the challenge blog, because the team all interpreted this one differently - so fun to see all the different takes on "retro"!
