Very apt title for me at the moment.....we are leaving for the airport in just over an hour and I haven't packed yet!!!!! But I couldn't leave without saying goodbye. This is the vacation we thought would never happen. Started planning/booking a year ago and everything that could go wrong has. BUT.....Kobe is in remission (although she has not been well at all this week, but that is due to a very bad, huge hot spot, rather than anything to do with her cancer; my doctor has given me the all clear to go, but I will be having more scans, etc the day after we return; my husband's sister has been in hospital since Saturday with a suspected stroke, but there is no news yet on her tests, and nothing we can do there anyway. And then there is always the worries you have when you are running your own business! I can only hope once I get on that plane I am going to take a deep breath, a chill pill (I am a white knuckle flyer) and I will be able to relax.
So...the layout. It's the Queen's Diamond Jubilee year & Kobe & Riley wanted to get into the party spirit too. Although my layout doesn't have the wild colours that Lizzy & Gabi's layouts have, or the unique playfulness of Sharon's style, I was influenced by these talented ladies to try and 'losen up' a bit, but I can tell you it wasn't easy for me to try and be so 'random' in my style. Had fun trying anyway....it's good to try different styles & go out of your comfort zone sometimes.
Did some Fussy cutting, stamping. Used up some old papers from my stash & scraps. TFL.
