My Feet Have Landed

but my head is still floating due to being OH SO TIRED!

Dave and I had a nice time. Didn't take oodles of photos, weather was very dismal while we were there, rained lots and we didn't see blue sky till we left. But here are some of the photos I did take.

On the first day I left Dave at his work thingee and I walked around lots, got lost, not really cos I had a map, and was in awe of the closeness of the bushland to the city. Took this shot of the HUGE ferns

took the photo while standing back here

We stayed at 2 hotels, we figure if you move hotels you get a different view etc. This was the view from the first hotel, which overlooked the harbour

So I was quite happy to sit and watch the fountain

or the airplanes

or the boats

Seeing the shuttle buses running on the electric system made me smile and miss Melbourne

Got lost and found my way past the 'Beehive'

On the Saturday Dave and I caught the cable car

we wandered through some of the Botanical Gardens

and then caught the cable car back down.

and that is all the photos I have!!

Flight home from Melbourne was an hour late so we didn't arrive back home till 11pm but thankfully Mum and Dad had all the girls in bed asleep. The girls had a fantastic time at Mum and Dad's shack. So good in fact that we had photos sent to my mobile at around 5pm the day we left. They were at the beach playing already lol.

So in other news....

here is a sneak peek of a page I made with the Scrap-n-Crop November kit.

The kit will be available 1st November along with full views of the creations from myself and Rachel.
Also there was an email awaiting me, an exciting one!!! Karen from Karen's Scrappin' Kupboard had invited me to join her design team!!! WOW!! I am excited about this because it's a Tasmanian based scrap shop and I am looking forward to being part of her team!!
Been a full on busy day today so am off to watch CSI and try and solve the case before they do ;)
Pin It Now!
