Hey everyone! Well I'm back from my sojourn along the coast
with my daughter & she's all settled into her new apartment and I
am back to work. Just prescheduling this to keep up and going
with this blog of mine. It's been a challenging 12 days with no
internet at all at home - a line fault in our area apparently - and
no-one can give us any idea how long it will take to fix. I also
have no computer as my hard-drive has crashed, worse than the
first time 6 months ago, as now none of my data is retrievable
and my computer has had to head to the capital city to a retrieval
expert. So please go easy on me, I'm doing my best to keep up :)
I have lots to share that hasn't gone up here so I'm sharing a layout
I created for I created for my DT debut at ScrapFriends in January.
I had a short but sweet time there of one month as I resigned when
I had to return to full-time work. I've copied and pasted directly from
the ScrapFriends blog due to my computer issues. See my layout up
at ScrapFriends HERE.
And as usual stunning layouts from our creative design team
I had lots of lovely close-up shots for you but they are now shattered
into cyberspace unfortunately. This challenge is still open for another
3 days! So enter if you like - ScrapFriends always has amazing prizes
and Guest Designer opportunities.

I have a 3G card now that I will be testing out tomorrow & hopefully
that will keep me ''in the loop" online until our internet gets restored.
Please say a prayer for my hard-drive - it is with a retrieval specialist
who is trying to retrieve all my data, from e mails to images, the lot.
I don't back up daily as I store my external hard-drive somewhere
else - due to the ever-present crime factor here but my new system
is virtually foolproof. My IT man is installing a SECOND hard-drive
to back up automatically in future, so that if I have a THIRD crash
before my monthly back-up I'll have everything copied over already -
unless of course they crash simultaneously - in which case...LOL
