Another Round Bites the Dust!

Yep, despite my horrid flu, I managed to get my entries done for Round 11 of SYTYCS.

Our first challenge was to create a page including at least three self portrait images and journalling about three quirks or fun facts that wouldn't be known about you. Here's my take;


















My journalling reads;

I prefer teaspoons over all other forms of cutlery; I am seriously irked by repetitive noises. On several occassions, I have been known to remove the batteries from a wall clock because its ticking was driving me temporarily insane; I hate closed-in shoes and I detest socks. I practically live in either thongs or barefeet... even in winter!

I really enjoyed doing this page, right through from taking the photos, to compiling the journalling, to scrapping the actual page. I've not really done any pages of myself before now, so I am really thankful for this challenge. Now there is a page all about me in my family's album!!!

Our second challenge this week was to create a LO that was based on any subject other than people. I chose to document my love of Starbucks!

Here's my take;


















And here's the (somewhat ridiculous) story behind my layout;

I fell in love with Starbucks in April this year when we visited Brisbane for a two week family holiday. Then, when I visited my friend in a Melbourne a couple of months back, our love was rekindled! We don't have a Starbucks in Perth. It's not fair!!! I crave Starbucks almost everyday but I'd have to get on a plane to get it. The funniest thing is... I don't really like coffee!

Should I get through this Round, next week I will be participating in the Grand Final! Holy Crap! It would be so cool, and a dream come true... but we'll just have to wait and see! Cross your fingers for me!!!

Thanks for popping by!
