Isn't it funny how one thing can change so much

No your not seeing things! This post does have the same title as a previous post but a complete 180 on that post!!!

Today we went to the supermarket, to get groceries and things for Megan's birthday tomorrow, she doesn't know it but a school friend is coming for lunch and we had to get things for her birthday dinner. We were at the register when the lady behind, in her lovely Canadian accent (love it!) asked if we were having a party. Megan told her that it was her birthday tomorrow and we got talking, about holidays, school etc. Anyway we pay for our things and start to load our trolley but before we move off she puts through the register a packet of snow balls and gives them to Megan and says they are for her birthday tomorrow. Sweet!!! So we returned the random act of kindness by buying a gerbera for her!! Turns out she became a Grandmother, for the first time, last night with a Grandson. I love that she took time out to get to know us and to step out with spontinaeity and make someones day a little brighter. So in her honour I created this page, so the girls never forget!!
I finally played about with the Picasa program and love that I could make everything b/w and just add colour to something LOVE THAT EFFECT!!!!
Also finished off this page in my art journal. Isn't what I wanted but moving on ;)

Found out today that I didn't make it through to the next round of the search for a fashinoista over at SIS. Honoured to have been in the top 100!! Looking forward to seeing who makes it to the end. So now I can share the page I made for the 2nd round, why I want to be a fashionista...

So there you go, a little more about what makes me tick lol

Dave came home while we were having lunch. He came bearing gifts, some Chomps and this...

Isn't he nice!! LOVE YOU DAVE! Grandma, he 'passed' his test :)
