Guess what???

It is Wednesday.

I like this quote. What do you think?

"None of us knows what the next change is going to be, what unexpected opportunity is just around the corner, waiting a few months or a few years to change all the tenor of our lives."

What happened to Tuesday?

Poo Bum Wee.... thought I did a quote for Tuesday. Ok, just pretend it is still Tuesday and then I will be back later for Wednesday, OK??

"The issues are the same. We wanted peace on earth, love, and understanding between everyone around the world. We have learned that change comes slowly." Paul McCartney

See ya when it is Wednesday - LOL!

Oooops missed Sunday...

was too busy driving around Victoria. Andrew decided that it was only 200 kms to the snow so off we went as it had snowed on Saturday night! Here is the top of Mt Buller.

Spent all day in the car and didn't get to the computer!!

Here is a change quote for Sunday:

"I thought I could change the world. It took me a hundred years to figure out I can't change the world. I can only change Bessie (myself). And honey, that ain't easy either." Annie Elizabeth Delany

And one for today....

"Change will not come if we wait for some other person or some other time. We are the ones we've been waiting for. We are the change that we seek." Barack Obama
Hope you all had a great weekend? I will put more photos on my blog.

let's CHANGE ......

So here is my version of this month's challenge set by Kathryn. I hope that you like it as much as I had making it!! Here is my little metal butterfly added to my page. As you all know I am a little into flutterbys, so I thought that I would add one to my layout.
Journalling was to be a focus for this challenge, so I created a little story. hee hee

Different sizes in photos were placed together as a bit of a mosiac look.

Chipboard letters were painted in colours that change as they go along.

I thought that this would be a different subject to create a page about ...... and , yes ........ they were YUMMY!!!!
Cheers Sandie xxxxx

spring has finally sprung!!!

hi there guys, sorry for the lateness of this last layout . yes sandie it is here, thanks for helping me but it has been hidden under paperwork, buying and selling houses has me a bit frazzled!!

i chose spring follies in paris as my theme. checkout my suitcase, i am proud of that, made it myself.

i used so many things but graphic 45 makes an appearance and of course distress embossing powders and lots of yummy goodness..

Today's quote is....

The more things change, the more they are the same. Alphonse Karr

Interesting Quote

I was neurotic for years. I was anxious and depressed and selfish. Everyone kept telling me to change. I resented them and I agreed with them, and I wanted to change, but simply couldn't, no matter how hard I tried. Then one day someone said to me, "Don't change. I love you just as you are." Those words were music to my ears: "Don't change, Don't change. Don't change . . . I love you as you are." I relaxed. I came alive. And suddenly I changed!

Anthony de Mello

Hello again...

... and here is another quote for you.

People can't live with change if there's not a changeless core inside them. The key to the ability to change is a changeless sense of who you are, what you are about and what you value. - Stephen Covey.

I hope you are all having a lovely day. Today Daniel and I took Granny to the Sacred Heart Cathedral. Even for a non-religious person like me, this amazing gothic style building was awe inspiring! It is huge and on the top of the hill in the middle of the city. Check out my blog for pictures later.

Then we went to the big shopping centre for a wander around, including a yummy citrus tart and gloria jeans coffee. I found a lovely teal coloured crocheted top on sale, so a great day out!! This is part of my change from a country bumpkin to a city slicker!! LOL

More Posts

to liven up our little blog, I am going to add a quote for each day for the next week. I hope you enjoy...

There will be two today as I meant to start yesterday, but got carried away with housework and driving to Melbourne Airport to collect the Granny Bird.

Any change, even a change for the better, is always accompanied by drawbacks and discomforts." Arnold Bennett


Confucius said, "Only the wisest and stupidest of men never change."

Have a great day. Love Kathryn

Now you didn't expect this that quick did you...To be truthful I had been planning to do this layout in my head for a few days now and coincidentally the journaling was going to be along the lines of change anyway so imagine how happy I was when I read about the theme of Kathryn's challenge. there is a tone on tone border (fiskars) on the brown cardstock that you cannot see in the top photo. Papers are cosmo cricket , stamps are Technique Tuesday and the cardstock is from (Kraft)Aussiescrapsource and the brown from Camelot, not sure of the brand though. will be stocking upon more of this colour next time I am there, it's a lovely shade.

Can't wait to see what every one else comes up with
(I'm hoping that by writing this big you will all see it and post your layouts, ha ha...)

What?? Is it really October?

Yes, Kathryn and it is the 12th already which means you are 12 days behind setting the challenge for the month!

Apologies lovely ladies, please forgive me?

Ok, your mission this month should you choose to accept it is....
A one word challenge....
and the word is......


You need to do a layout on this word, with the journalling being an important part of it.

Change is inevitable. Change is always happening. You can do your layout on the change you can see in ...
your life
your child
the seasons
the economy
the world
or in your pocket!!!

"If you don't like something, change it. If you can't change it, change your attitude. Don't complain." - Maya Angelou
