Ok....So I admit it....I'm a..........

Ok so I admit it, I'm a Scrapaholic and I drink too much............ well I didn't actually think I had a problem, but after a visit to the Dr's last week (for my annual 4yearly checkup....he actually said to me "Well either you don't get sick much or your scared of me" you know he says all this while resting his "Dr" hand on my knee, I do always try and sit in the furthermost away chair but his has wheels and he comes closer and closer!....now you know why I dont go much....but I did need more drugs for my back and the Nurse wouldn't give me a another script unless I saw the Doc,
hence my visit, which as it turns out wasn't exactly working in my favour!)
Apparently I drink far too much COFFEE and that is apparently the problem, once again I don't see it as a problem, what really is wrong with having one at 5.30am and then having a continuous cup while scrappin until bedtime usually around 11pm....ok so maybe there are a few I could cut out, but WHY? The Doc informed me I would be much better dropping some coffees and having GREEN TEA..................GREEN TEA! what the hell is green tea I said, does that come in the form of a coffee jar and have "Moccona" on the label, cos if it doesn't then this gal ain't drinking it!
Well just try it he said.....................he must have thought Ha! I have her here now lets tell her she needs a blood test................to which I replied "What the hell for" I'm not sick...ok i have a problem, apparently i drink too much coffee but does that really require a blood test....I don't think so! he wants to check my liver (its fine its pickled from the over excessive amount of wine I also drink) he wants to check my cholesterol (its fine, its not like I eat a lot of takeaways...oh hang on yes i do! na its fine) he wants to check my Kidneys (they are fine, they go hand in hand with my liver) and a heap of other things, when he tried to hand me the form I said "No thanks" I'm feeling fine, Maybe (definitely)a kilo or 5 overweight (due to the takeaways and the heavy drinking I suspect!) but feeling fine and your not going to send me for a blood test to find something and tell me I will only have a matter of weeks to live...........cos that's what happens, people go to the Dr feeling just a little off colour and then wham the next thing they are drinking up a storm cos they have been told (via a blood test....) that they have cancer or heart disease or whatever and they better sort out their priorities cos it will all be over soon........my theory is cut out the middle man (the Doc), drink eat and be merry and scrap away to your little hearts content and if and when your time comes then so be it..................Anyway I was sidetracked.........
I found some GREEN TEA Yesterday and thought Ok I will try this for one day,
Verdict:- I don't like it!!! I woke up this morning feeling yuck and like I was floating......is it possible to drink too much GREEN TEA, I think so! the box had 25 tea bags and now theres only 17 left........................at least I know where I stand with my trusty cup of "Moccona" its my inspiration for scrappin, if I hit a wall and can't find that idea in my grey matter then a cup always sorts out the brainwaves and puts everything back in place and off we go again,
GREEN TEA and DOCTORS are the only 2 things that should be taken in very "little" moderation!
So while I have my 4th cup this morning and think about the scrappin day ahead, I will think more about the Blood Test form that is on the side of my fridge, But I will win...............

Hope you have a great weekend and get lots of scrappin done

BPS - Week 3 - Green with Nic...

I am not really a big fan of green, but I do seem to use it alot in my scrappin' it just seems to blend into any other colour thats on the page and it really is the "Woman behind any good Man". I did enjoy this challenge but unfotunately the dimension is not visible from the photo.......................what do you think?



Of course there had to be a little Prima and Timmy (as usual) but a little never hurt..... did it?Anyway I would love to hear your thoughts on this layout so please let me know what you think

The Colour (color) Orange/Yellow BPS Challenge with Nic.....

Well this one really took some thinking, not 2 of the easiest colours to work with, but together they seem to compliment each other. I used a black and white photo of My Mum on her Wedding Day way back in 1959. I used some pearls on my layout because Mum borrowed Grans ones for the big occassion. I had to play around with lots of different combinations before I was happy with the final layout and then it had to be "Robbi-ed" of course...no wonder a single layout can take me 3 days to complete!
Can't waste time now tho Adrienne has given me bags of goodness to play with and make some 4/5 page kits and then some gorgeous papers to make a 2 page kit and guess what its guna be "Robbi-ed" so you know there's guna be a little Prima here and there
Anyway what are your thoughts on this layout, please leave me a comment and let me know what you think.



Thanks for looking and Happy Scrappin...

The Colour RED..........................

I have joined the BPS 6 week challenge with Nic Howard, this 1st week was the colour (or is it color?) RED. Not really one of my favourite colours as it is very bold and as you all know the eye goes straight to it on a page, however I did enjoy the challenge and am looking forward to this weeks one ..............orange/yellow

Here is my take on the RED Layout Challenge


Letz know what you think.......................
