A new layout

It's a very short working week for me this week, since Friday is a public holiday. So tomorrow is my only day, WOOHOO! And it's nearly the end of the school holidays here. We have enjoyed our holidays but they sure seemed to go fast. We have caught up with quite a few friends tho, and got to do some fun stuff so we've had a great time. And more fun stuff is planned for the weekend - we are going to watch the balloons take off at dawn! I have always wanted to go, and Dave has never been keen. Then out of the blue yesterday he suggested we go on the weekend, so Tassy and I are very excited! Not too excited about the early start tho - I hate giving up the chance to sleep in a bit on the weekend, but I KNOW it will be worth it!

I was keen to use some new (to my collection, anyway!) products so did this layout the other day. Thanks Moi for the background cardstock for this layout! I've also used a bunch of Heidi Grace products that my in-laws gave me for my birthday. You can click on the layout to read the journalling. :) My funny girl...
Don't forget KSK is running a charity auction. The winning bidders win have a custom made layout scrapped for them by the relevant Design Team members. Check it out!

what a great story and layout of Tassy!! and look at you using up more of that heidi grace stuff!!!!! Capri was like Tassy too with the loud noises!!! She couldn't handle the vacuum cleaner or any sudden noises!! But she's not like that now!!! Enjoy your early morning start with the balloons!!!!!

Lovely layout Yvette - beautiful, fresh colours.
Have fun watching the balloons - I have done that too once before - in the city here, it's very beautiful with the sun coming up at the same time.

Wow I LOVE that layout!!! I knew you'd put that CS to good use. It looks great with all the colourful stuff. Love that scallopy border and I can SO relate to the LO ... Roie is very sensitive about loud noises too, and can be quite loud as well (though I suspect Tassy would win most times ;)). We've been to the balloons most years. I think we may be going but CJ just got out of hospital (!!!) so I'm not sure. Great to see you last weekend. x

Another gorgeous layout Yvette... and what a beautiful photo of Tassy! Love the journalling too.

Hope you're enjoying your weekend. Were you watching the balloons today or tomorrow? I'm sure it will be fabulous to see!
