It's April Fools Day!!

I was tempted to do something silly, well sillier than usual if you can believe it, for April Fools Day but I decided that I was a big enough fool without making an extra special effort. Perhaps I should try to be sensible today...well, I did but that doesn't work either, so you just get me as I am and today I actually managed to stay out of trouble.

Well, it's late in the day as I spent time with my middle granddaughter, Emma and what with the rest of my day I wasn't in until this evening. We went and watched Marley and Me and it sent goose bumps down my spine.....I thought...Charlie!!! Those shredded cushions were just like his bed...and the shoe. The rushing off and the ability to ignore someone yelling at the top of their's him, it's him. I think they must have cloned Marley's personality and made Charlie's. I did have to admire the couple, I would never be brave enough to let Charlie have the run of the house when I went out, not a chance!!

But the was so sad!! Emma cried buckets, I should have taken a life preserver to keep us afloat...we nearly drowned in all those tears. She started, then I could feel the tears coming and then a girl behind use topped us both and really started sobbing!! I know it does you good to cry once in a while but this was a tsunami!!

As the credits started to roll Emma rushed for the exit with me stumbling in the dark to keep up. When we reached daylight she vanished into the toilets "to mend her face"...the mascara had run rather badly with all the tears. Me I didn't have that problem, I hadn't worn any as I was forewarned it was a weepy ending...for once I got it right!!

So tears over I came home to find out what my own little "Marley" had got up to.

Now to the scrapping. First let me share an absolutely stunning layout with a fantastic photo effect that Bina sent me. Cutting the picture in four works so well and I love the hearts, just one of the little details that make this a special page. Thank you Bina for sharing it!! (I apologise for not giving full credits, I do know that she used some of the blog freebie papers but any other credits I missed...I'm sorry!!)


Today's little freebie is some threaded petals. It's really simple but I like simple at the moment. Have a look, I really need to brush up on my preview skills, I always struggle with these. Am I the only one?


You can download them here

Take care and see you soon!!

Thank you June - these threaded flowers are very interesting. You come up with amazing design ideas.

I have been wondering what Marley & me is like - obviously a movie you would recommend - might have to put going to watch it on my to do list.

Have a terrific day, Hugs, Keryn

LOL! I have problems with my previews, too! I have some looking like Charlie got hold of them. LOL

The flowers are so sweet. They look a bit like eucalyptus(sp?) at first glance. Thank you!
