my new diary


yes, I know it's nearly the end of January, but I wasn't going to buy myself a dairy this year. We got given an A4 size personalised one as a gift from work, and I was just going to use that, but I REALLY struggled not having it in my handbag. My darling brother - whose deserved nickname is my "baby bugger" - believes I could fit a tank in my handbag, but it's just not true! I had to call people back about bookings and classes - hair and other appointments had to be made at a later date, and I thought - if this is what it's like after less than a month, and it's even the school holidays -no after school activities or play dates - imagine what it will be like when J goes back to school!! AARRRGGHHHH!!! So, I saw that Louise and Lisa had both altered their diaries using the new Bali Breeze paper, and I loved the look, so I went for the same thing. The numbers were generated on my computer, but splitcoast has the RGB codes for the Stampin' Up! colours, so even they match!! Isn't that better than the original??
Don't you love that big flower? It's directly off a sheet of the Bali breeze paper -my daughter loves it, and now wants her room decorated with it. At $13.95 for 12 sheets, it's a bloody good bargain for 12 x 12 double sided scrapbook paper. For 2 sheets that I have to cut the flowers out of and decorate a whole room - not so economical!! Nice try tho!
