"How Do You Spell Hungry"

Lucy asked me today
I replied "L...U...C...Y"
She laughed :)

So here is my 1000th post!! Was going to have bells and whistles, lights and sparkle but it is what it is and its all good ;)

Today was sunshiny, although the morning was cold to start, so Lucy and I had a picnic lunch in the backyard and enjoyed the sun shine.

So 1000 posts!! Hmmm how can one celebrate?? Well I am going to put together a box full of treats, all sorts of things, and one wonderful person will have the opportunity of having that box turn up on their doorstep. Want to know how you might have that opportunity?? Every person who leaves a comment on my blog between now and March 17 (AUSSIE TIME), which is my blog's 3rd birthday, will have their name in the hat to win. I will post some piccys over the next few days of some of the goodies I am adding. It's just my way of saying thank you for visiting, thank you for reading and thank you for your encouraging words and for saying hi when you visit my little ol' blog.

Took lots of photos today, trying to inspire myself to create again and will leave you with this page I made today. It started out 12x12, I didn't like it so I ripped the top off, liked it and realised that I am bored with the 'regular' 12x12, square shaped page and realised that I like the different looking page. So this I like...

also liking to take my layout photos in a way that isn't square either so you might see more of that ;)
Pin It Now!

    LOL at hungry Lucy :-) hehehe
    And I grinned to myself when I read that you ripped the top off your LO. heheee Good on you. And yeah ... things don't need to be square all the time! Some of us are round (or in my case pear shaped!) LOL Cool LO by the way :-)

  2. With my feral 4 I have had some of my pages end up like this without the deliberate artistic intention!
    Yours looks fab ;)

  5. Happy 1000th postday, I can't imagine ever getting there myself as I'd much rather read other peoples than write my own. I love to travel the world from my front room to find out what the weathers like and what people are doing, it's so cool.
