Back to Reality

Well an amazing summer holiday has come to an end, and we are home safe and sound. A twelve hour road trip with two dogs and four six week old puppies was a bit exhausting ~ but we have all survived relatively unscathed!

I am once again a bit late in posting last weeks challenge from over at Lets Scrap but from now on I should be a bit more organised.

The prize offered this week is from

This is the lovely sketch that Cheri prepared for us.

I used these gorgeous photos of my daughter Kerry and her friends Sam and Alex. They found this awesome cocktail bar in Port Elizabeth (where we were holidaying), where they served the cocktails in teapots and jamjars. The teapot cocktails were all iced tea based and the jamjars were white rum based. I loved the photos ~ good fun was had by all!!!!! Here is my LO.

I have a huge amount of scrapping work to do, to try and get myself up to date. We are organising an exciting blog hop over at Lets Scrap. It starts on 14th January, 2011 and runs through to 14th February, 2011. Why not go on over and get some more details. There will be loads of wonderful challenges, awesome prizes and a chance to meet up with a whole lot of new scrapping friends!.

Also want to remind you to sign up for my BLOG CANDY HERE. I will be doing the draw on the 16th January, 2011.
