Jet setting

Well, tomorrow at 6am we set off for our 4 week trek around Europe! I may be able to post a photo or 2 while away as we are taking the handy dandy laptop but I am making it an aim to limit my computer use so I therefore maximise my travel time! This is the tour we will be doing. Pretty sure I won't be able to sleep tonight knowing I have to get up at 3am!

Better late than never...

Our wonderful friends Mala and Henri have had their engagement photos featured on one of my favourite blogs, Polka Dot Bride! They are so lovely and I can only hope one day I have some shots as beautiful! Here is an example and check the post on Polka Dot Bride for more:

The photos are taken by Ryan David Ahern

Some good news!

Well, I got the M-cups for my birthday as shown a couple of posts ago. I actually got 2 sets so have decided one set will be for measuring and one set will be for display and to fill with yummy goodies! Among other things I also received these delightful cupcake moulds, also by Fred!

In other good news, our trip to Europe is only a few days away and flights to the area are pretty much back to usual so now is the time to start packing I believe!

Well challenge 3 was to interpret a sketch you can find in this thread. I decided to risk doing a big paint circle and then had fun shopping at Spotlight after work last night to buy some material and ribbon and came up with this:

Today I {heart}...

I was browsing Polka Dot Bride as I often do and came across Johanna Johnson. I absolutely LOVE her accessories and hope to purchase one some day. My pick of the day:

New Love!

I saw these Babushka Doll measuring cups in House today and am massively regretting not buying them! I shall have to make a return trip I think and pick some up, unless someone takes my massive hinting and buys them for my birthday this weekend... Only $20.00 in House. I'm in love!

Chookscraps Masterchook

A new competition is underway at Chookscraps. Masterchook involves a new challenge being issued every fortnight with a couple of timed "pressure tests" throughout. We are already up to Challenge 3 and all details can be found here.

Here are my entries so far... Challenge 1:

Challenge 2:

Now to get thinking for Challenge 3 which involves interpreting a sketch...

April Cybercrops

OK, well there are a couple of cybercrops coming up in the next week or so. The first is at Chookscraps starting on the 16th of April. Pre chat and hints can be found here.

The theme has something to so with school but there is much speculation about still. Can't wait to see what it is!

The second is happening over at Bons Scraps from 20th of April and you can find the timetable and pre chat here.

I always love the photo challenge here and hope I will have time to upload a photo each day despite being in the last minute stages of getting ready to go to Europe for 4 weeks!!
