Now who could resist this beautiful destination in our Postcards Competition at ScrapBoutique ????

The entries for Week 1 were amazing, hopefully the levels of interest will be maintained as we scrap our way all around the globe. Not that I've done much scrapping recently.......although I did manage my Italy LO & one of the challenges for the CC, as well as the Sunday Roast LO. So I guess that's not too bad after all.

Quick trip to Sydney this week for my pre-admission appt at RPA. Found our way there OK but changed our accommodation from the pub next door which was a dive, up the street to Rydges. Saw lots of different staff at hospital, everyone was nice & friendly - but I'm still scared witless about it all :( And 6 weeks of virtually being housebound afterwards - hope it's not too long before I can scrap or I'll really go mental!!!!!!!

Back later with some LOs.

The start of the month was a low time for me unfortunately. I experienced nearly 10 days of nausea after my first lot of IV bone treatment & was severely depressed for a number of days. Thankfully that awful time passed after we spent some time away visiting family over Easter.

On a brighter front - Chelsea has asked me back as a permanent stylist for ScrapBoutique. Thankyou Chels for this opportunity, which is a more than welcome distraction for me at the moment. And lucky me.........I got to play with some of the ultra cute MME Lil Robots range from the Boutique.

And my first official duty was to set the theme for April's Monthly Challenge - Indulgences. Chelsea also gave me some of the Jillibean Soup range 'Old World Cabbage Stew' to use in my stylist pack & this is what I came up with - my greatest indulgence is definitely my weekends away scrapping.

Speaking of indulgent weekends away - the TickLed Pink girls had our 2nd trip down to the Southern Highlands last weekend. This time we stayed in a beautiful BIG house in Berrima & took a day trip over the mountain to Kangaroo Valley on the Saturday. We went antique shopping again, ate lots of good food & laughed heaps together. We had late nights scrapping - I completed 16 LOs - half of those in A4 size and I managed to get lots of older photos done for a number of challenges. It was a really good weekend, marred only by being delayed in traffic for a couple of hours coming out of Sydney, due to an accident on the Hawkesbury bridge. But even then we managed to keep ourselves entertained by eating popcorn & watching people in the cars next to us!!!! I didn't take many photos so hopefully one of the girls will lend me theirs.

I've received my hospital papers from my Orthopaedic Dr at RPA. My hip replacement surgery has been booked for the 10th May & we have to go down for a pre admission appt on the 28th April. I am somewhat nervous about the whole thing but need to keep in mind that the end result of being painfree & able to walk properly, is going to be worth any hassle beforehand. Hopefully I won't be out of action for too long.

OK this has turned into a long post, will put this month's LOs up tomorrow.
