So - did you miss me???

Well you may not have even realised but I've been away for a week :)

Last Saturday my family, with my Mum and my nephew jumped on board this in Brisbane.....


(oh how we loved the sight of that wonderful Maroons banner :-)))) Yaaaaay QLD!!!!

....we saw this.....


...looking back from the Isle of Lifou.....

where the Melanesian women adorned us in these and fed us some of their traditional lap lap.....


....before we moved on to Vanuatu where we met this fellow.....


and learnt some amazing details about life for the traditional ni-Vanuatu.

Seeing our ship from different angles never ceased to amaze us.....



It was the most amazing holiday and I am so very happy to be able to say that because I seriously had to face my fears getting on that ship - yes I've seen the movie "Titanic" and I have in the past been very fearful of cruising but Mum "harrassed" me over many years until I finally gave in....and I'm so glad I did - I felt as safe as houses and we were so very well looked after it was a dream vacation :-)))

And now it's back to reality!!!! ....and washing and cooking - oh lord I'll actually have to get off my butt and cook dinner tonight - what a shock that will be - not to mention it won't be a 3 course meal as we've come accustomed to for the last 7 nights.


Aaaaah what wonderful memories we have :-))

So, I'm looking forward to getting busy with my July projects for Scrapbook Boutique and Manor House Creations and I'll be back on Tuesday to share the first of card for July's Scrapbook Boutique Blog Hop Challenge....I hope to see you then:-))

Sunday Salutations!


 Hey has your weekend been?

Just popping in to say "Hi"....I haven't been around as we've been away camping this weekend for a friend's 50th birthday.....we stayed at the fabulous spot you see above....Spring Gully Stays at was a dream our friend had to get all her family (including many from down south) and her friends all away together for her birthday weekend...and it was brilliant!

Those who didn't have camping gear could stay in permanent tents like these...


they were clean and comfortable and having everyone together like this worked so's a few piccies of what we got up to....


....a great spot to eat, drink and be merry.....'s the dance floor.....
and a beautiful flowing creek where we all had lots of fun on tyre tubes...

So if you're in the SE Qld area and looking for somewhere close for a great camping/clayton's camping getaway I can recommend Spring Gully Stays for sure.....a great weekend that we will long remember:-)

Okay....I'm off to wash, and tidy and catch up before the working week gets underway again....see you again with some creativity in a day or two.
