Thankful that:

instead of buying the more expensive 500 gb external hard drive Hansel chose to buy the 320 gb one and then using the money he had "saved" to buy a phonecard

While the judges tally the scores of the participants in the Dance Sport these ladies provided a dance intermission.

Easter blessings

Thankful that:

the priest was late for Mass

Having brunch with the family at Sizzling Pepper Steak on Easter Sunday.

Kit used is Easter Blessings by Kathy's Scraps. For a complete description and previews of the kit which is available at DigiScrapStation please see post immediately below.



There is a kit in Sunshine Studio Scraps which I'd like to win: Olde Tyme Junque by Cari Cruse. I think it'd be great to have this kit in scrapping those pictures I took at Sovereign Hill in Ballarat. The elements which I can see like the lamp and well-worn boot will be perfect because Sovereign Hill depicts a mining town in the 1850s.
