I've been a bit busy getting a few posts organized as Walshie and I are planning a little trip to Fiji in search of some sunshine.  It's been a year since our last big trip to Celebrate Ian's B'day so the time is right and our Sydney weather is horrid at the moment cold and very wet!!!

Hope you'll call back tomorrow for AnnaBelle Stamps Friday Challenge which this week is a colour challenge.............Hope to see you then.
