Happy Monday!! Hope you had a great weekend, we had the usual soccer/kids socialising/Henry injuring himself (falling off his ripstick) weekend here. And I managed a stupid minor burn to myself by attempting to cut open a hot chicken kiev with a blunt knife, only to succeed in covering myself with very hot garlic and butter sauce - genius..
I actually got half an hour talking scrapping with Francine and ordered some more Tim Holz distressing ink, hooray!
And I finally finished this page which I have been working on for the past few days. Love this photo. It was taken on the day we toured around Vietnam, visiting military sites. A really interesting day, which may have only been improved if the guide we had paid for had turned up instead of just the taxi driver whose English was only marginally better than our Vietnamese...
I used this weeks sketch over at one of my favourite Greek sites, Get Creative, love their stuff!!
Isn't this such a cool sketch??
On a side note, I usually scan my flatter Lo's, esp if the day is dim like today. I take photos of the lumpy ones as the shadows from the scanner make them look quite dodgy. So i scanned this one, two perfectly good halves, and applied my usual photo merge in photoshop, normally a great result. Today it gave me this back in return -
-Huhhh! So I ended up merging the two halves by hand, a bit of a pain. Hopefully photoshop will come and play a little nicer next time...
And i have to apologise for whinging about public transport last week - we are so spoilt here, buses are clean and pretty cheap and really I only had to walk a block to get home. I had promised myself to stop complaining about little things this month, so rap on the knuckles for me.
Complaining about big things like our political leaders however is a whole different story...
(be very glad you don't live here and have to listen to me complain about them every time the news comes on, but I guess again compared to Greece we have it pretty easy as well.)
Have a great day xx
