ACDC!!!!!! Blew my head off!!!

Thanks to one of Stus mates,Add Image
we found ourselves on the way to Brisbane yesterday'
to see ACDC

We had sorta resigned ourselves to the fact that we wouldn't get there
and then out of the blue Sty gets this amaising phone call
offering tickets!!
And great seats too!!!
No one was infront of us and we get clear views all night!!!
Here we are ready to go...
Had no idea what to wear!!
As you can see............
He got lots of favourable comments...
I got some great photots...
I took 560 and most of them turned out really well!!
So love my new camera and the non shake lens!!
I set it to sport, and didn't use the flash..
They had some great staging
But i was so impressed with Angus!
This guy is 53 years old and total inspiration!!
The man didn't stop the whole night!!
All the crowd had those red light devil horns!!!
And looked great through the mosh pit!!
Angus's Solo fanalie
We worked out there was about 45 thousand people there...
When we turned up, the highway was blocked off....
there were so many people!!!
But of course, they are all arriving over the period of a few hours!
Leaving the place was very interesting!!
45000 people, all leaving via 2 gates!
With about 500 waiting buses!!
We were herded onto the buses with pot luck where we would end up!!
Thank goodness we ended up quite close to were we were staying,
but after studying the map at the bus terminal and then
walking in the exact opposite direction we needed to go......
Lets just say thank goodness Don hailed a Taxi!!
We might never have got home!!!

Another Layout Share

Here is another layout
I forgot about...
Did this a while ago for a challenge...
This is my friend Lindi that i went to school with, and two of her adorable three daughters...

Scrap Therapy Challenge Showcase

I thought it might be time to share some layouts that i have done during the month for Scrap Therapy Challenges....
This month we are featuring the many benefits of Tattered Angels Glimmer Mist.
And i have to admit, ive never really been a big fan of these "Novelty" kind of techniques, but i have won myself over this month!!!
Its such a versatile product!!!
See here for glimmermist
(Theres not much in stock at the moment, but a huge shipment is on the way, so keep an eye out!!)

This layout i have simply sprayed
Ink Potion #9 on the layout first,
(This stopped the Glimmermist from wrinkling up the paper, keeping it flat. If you dont use it, the page curls up and wont sit properly)
Then sprayed a light mist over the white section in the centre just to take the starkness of it.

"A Boys Story"
With this layout, i have used the glimmermist like paint, and just painted it on the clouds, aeroplane and the boat to make them sparkle a bit.
These layouts are for the
Scrap Therapy Cybercrop we have had this weekend
See here for the challenges
"5 Things"
This layout was the Theme Challenge.
This months theme is "What We Love"
and we had to name 5 things we love.
Ive used glimmer mist to colour change the white flowers
and also sprayed on the paper doiley.
This was the Inspirational Challenge
set by Me.
We had to gain inspiration from a photo
and scrap about a new addition to the family.
"An Angel is born to us"
I really love this layout.
I have also used glimmermist to colour change the lace at the base.

A Movie Weekend

Everyone in the family was off doing their own thing this weekend, and i was home alone... The scrapping bug just hadnt bit me, and i was so bored!!! I went and talked to the horses, but they didnt have much in the way of conversation happening, so i decided to head to the movies to see a couple of films that i had been pestering numerous family members to see with me.. But alas, i went alone....

The first was
"Its Complicated"
This movie was laugh and snort out loud hilarious!!!
Im usually not a huge fan of Alex Baldwin, i think he is a bit of a sleeze, and he totally is in this movie too, but so funny!!!
The guy behind me was cacking himself laughing!!
There is no sudject of grounds...
Including the "Your vagina will close up if you don't have sex" myth!!
If you want a good belly laugh, go and see this!!!
Meryl Streep is so loveable in this movie too!

Then i hung around and saw
"The lovely Bones"
I read some reviews and with most book to film movies, its always very controversial. Some reviews people loved it, some thought it was lacking...
I enjoyed it, but alot of the emotion in the book wasnt in the movie. And to tell you the truth, i kinda didnt even shed a tear and i totally expected to ball my eyes out!!!
But, I think each person sees things differently, maybe if i was in a different frame of mind it would have been better.

The Tooth Fairy!!
Emelia and i went to see this today....
What a cute movie!!
The scorpion king plays really good kids movies!!!
Funny, sweet and it has a moral to it like all good kids movies!!
Dont try to destroy peoples dreams!!!

Scraptherapy Cybercrop Friday 8.00pm start NSW Time

IM hosting the blind scrap
starts 8.30pm NSW time....

Here is my childhood happy place, for those that need it today....

Its funny how songs can have such a huge impact in our lives....
This one had a massive impact on me.
The thought that i might be able to find some place better than the place i was when i was young was the answer i was looking for....
All i needed was some encouragement from Kermit to help me find it..
I will always be grateful for this song...

I Heart Faces Week 7 - "I Wanna Dance" Photo Challenge

I dont really have the photos to "compete"
(not that i am ever a competitor!!)
this week as there really arn't any decent
photos that i have taken about this topic.

But I do have photos......
So I shall share as they are so hilarious!!!

100 years ago, when i had my 40th birthday
my dear friend Kaysie was asked to be the resident photographer!!
She did a brilliant job
and got some awesome and embarrassing photos!!
Let me share a few!!!

We had a jukebox
and everyone was getting up having a sing..
every singer need groupies!!!

So here we are:
I so LOVE this photo of Brenda!
I don't think i have ever seen her laugh so hard before or after!

And the fun continues....
We all get into the jive.....
And then the piggy tale has a mind of its own!!!
Brenda looks a bit bored by it all now though...
This was the total best party!!
Cant wait for my 50th now!!!
