A restrained LO

For me anyway.. no inking, no misting no twine and the photos line up!! It is harder than it looks.

All inspired by this weeks Sketchy Thursday sketch. I like the way the clean style highlights the photos, and with a view like that, I guess they should be the centre of attention.

We only live a couple of hours away from Sydney, an easy drive but we never seem to make it there. When Matt caught his plane from the airport, we decided to spent the weekend looking around. This is the photos we took on the ferry to get across to the zoo. the opera House never ceases to amaze, wonderful, bizarre but beautiful building that it is.

And thank you to the folks at Scrapping the Music for choosing this LO of Meaghan for this weeks winner. Always, always nice to see your work up. yay.

The kids are on holidays at the moment so we are off clothes shopping for Meaghan now. sigh.

And Matt is about to hit Vienna. So far his favourite place has been Krakow in Poland, he has just spent a week in Prague but has been a bit sick. His blog work has been less than exemplary, a source of frustration for us (seriously how hard can it be to write a few lines, esp for someone who wants to be a writer!!) but skype continues to be wonderful. It never ceases to amaze us that we get free wifi whenever we have travelled OS and Matt has the same in Europe, but if you want Internet access in your hotel room in Australia you have to pay through the nose. So annoying and embarrassing as well.

Ok off now, see you in a day or two for my very last Southern Girls DT LO. If you are quick you can still apply to be on the team. It is a wonderful team and I am desperatly sad to be moving on, but I needed a bit of a break (the last challenge had at last count over 370 entries..). Pop on over if you are interested and wish Lou luck as she is currently in hospital hopefully having her forth baby very soon. xx

Love this!!
It's a very cool LO Karen and stunning pics.
I have a lovely friend from the UK who moved to Sydney last year with her hubby's work. He has to take a ferry that goes past the opera house to work every day. Sounds like a beautiful commute to me! xxx
