plenty to look at

and now for something completely different (or not)...........


this is for sketchbook's fortnightly sketch challenge
- i did 3 layouts in one sitting!!!
and sketchbook's friday night challenge (TBC by sunday nights) - i never seem to get this one done - until this weekend! rainy days help i guess :)and this one for inspired blueprints. the last layout i did for them was colourful too!
this one's for my sketch world. i got the 'then and now' idea from my friend margot (via BPS i think) i really think i have a sketch addiction problem! still, if it's good for the scrapping mojo, who am i to complain?
this is for creative scrappers. one of their weekly sketch challenges.
those fall colours were just amazing
has anyone noticed how random my blog posts have become since i started my new job?

today's blog post is brought to you by the number 50...

my spring fling winner was jaime over at handful of blessings. she ALSO hosted a giveaway that coincided with her 50th blog post. she wondered what the chances were of the random number generator picking number 50.

well you just know it did.

and you just know who number 50 belonged to...

..a few closing thoughts:

  • please take a moment to remember natasha richardson, who died last week.
  • my parents are coming to stay next wednesday!
  • we're all going to a travel quiz together and i think our team name will be 'roman holiday'
  • 190 sleeps til italy
  • yesterday was the last game of softball
  • today's the last day of netball trials. a long winter of freezing saturday mornings on the netball court sideline awaits us...
  • 4 sleeps til my birthday
  • bands that have colours in their names:
white stripes
green day
yellow card
red jumpsuit apparatus
black sabbath
pink floyd

feel free to enlighten me regarding orange, grey, brown and everything else inbetween.

happy sunday

Regardless of whether your posts are random or not, they're always fun to read. :)

Hey, I'm nearly famous - got a mention on your blog, hee hee!
Did you realise that Hello Sailor's songs (the ones that were hits anyway) nearly all mentioned colours: Gutter Black, Blue Lady and I'm sure there was another one that I can't remember now....
Glad to see that working hasn't stopped the blogging (and randomness is SO trendy!).

Thanks for stopping by my blog and participating in my giveaway! Unfortunately there could only be 3 winners, I wish I could make cookies and give them to everyone, but I think Hubs would protest that he wouldn't get to eat any cookies because I'd send them all away. lol Next best thing?? I'm posting the recipe tomorrow so everyone can give it a shot! :)
