Whoopee Wednesday!

I had two, yes two parcels today!

How exciting is that?

As they were both full of stash and free ....very!!!

The first one was some gorgeous blog candy that I won from Helen just before I went away - it's divine - even yummier in real life! And I have NEVER won blog candy before so it was even more precious!

The second parcel contained my prize for winning A True Friend challenge - again, not something I usually enter as I can't keep up with them all and just scrap for me - but this time a LO I had just made fit the bill perfectly and I couldn't help myself but had to add a link! I'm so pleased - look at all this lovely Cosmo! Perfect for more little ratty boy pages!

The LO that I'm sharing today was one of the ones I made at the weekend using my Scrapagogo kit. It was called Fabrication and was chock full of sewing type goodies. Not something I do, ever, and being a scrapper who embellies with the photo theme I had to think outside the pizza box a little and decided to scrap this photo from Venice.

I'm not sure there is anywhere else in the world where laundry is photographed quite so much! An American couple and I were laughing about it whilst visiting Burano too. Rightly or wrongly though it did make interesting photos with both colours and shapes. My favourite had to be this one though - the childrens toys hanging out to dry looked so cute! (Sorry bad Blogger won't let me add the photo at the end so it's all out of order again!!?) This photo is going in my travel journal!!

Hope you are all well - nearly the weekend!

What lovely prizes, and isn't it lucky how both packages coordinate so nicely!
Beautiful LO Sarah. I love the way you pegged the photo to the page :)

Oh wow Sarah, what fabby candy to receive, some lovely looking things in there.

I reckon you ought to get busy with them and enter a l/o into our Stampalot challenge, the Tim Holt prize is fantastic.

We don't got too many l/o 's and it would be nice to see more and your's are always so great.

Love the washing photos. Those toys with that colour wall look amazing. Wonder why they needed washing though!!

Glad to see you had a lovely time, your photographs are beautiful.Love the layouts too and i'm sure there are lots more to come from the photos you took. Lucky you winning 2 challenges too, what a nice surprise that must have been. Hope going back to work hasn't taken the edge of your mini break and your still feeling the benifits.
