Look what I did today......:-(

Finally we dusted the bikes off and DH and I rode our Hondas to Portland.

It was a bit windy, but otherwise fantastic to be on the bike again.
I love the smell of the pine forests when we got past Donavons VIC....

We wanted to go and check out a Caravan Park that would be great to spend a week there in our humongous tent (which we call the Taj Mahal..LOL) sometime in the near future. Although I'd be bored....I would miss my FB, scrapping and chatting at Bons!!

We decided we would ride through Cape Bridgewater on our way home. Well DH missed turn off, so we had to turn around. I started to take off, the bike stalled and
(sorry Steve A)

Lucky I jumped away, so I didn't get hurt.

But the bike did!!

I broke the brake lever off, and of course my beautiful Honda has some more scratches!!!!

Look no brake lever!


Scratches down the bottom. Sorry not a good pic.

Looking on the bright side at least it wasn't the clutch lever....then I would really be in the poo!
I tell you it was not fun riding using only the foot brake, but I took steady and used my amazing bike skills to get me home safe!!

Sundays Photo Prompt....

Bons' Photo Challenge Jan 2010

1st Day - Summer Shoes
I have 2 favourite pairs of shoes

2nd Day - Summer - YELLOW
I make Iced Coffees on hot days

Day 3 - Summer Fashion
This is a top and jewellery I love wearing when we go out to Dinner on Summer nights

This is the latest for Stuck Sketches Challenge... I love it!!!!

A close up of my random stitching.....I'm a big fan, love how it gives the page more texture.

Oh this one of my favourites too!!! I was inspired by Charms Sketch Challenge at Bons...then I also took inspiration from a DVD I got with my Scrapbook Creations... I love the border and the colours. The PP and embellies from Bons!!

A close up of the bling rub on from Bons Jan Kits..... I loved this months kits!!!

Ah, this was a fun LO for me. When I last visited my Mum and Step Dad I asked if I could take a photo of all of us....... LOL...... it took 5 shots to get it almost right!!!

This is my eldest GS Damon....... he is such an old soul for someone so young..... so well mannered and gentle..... I don't want him to grow up!!!!!!! I love him to bits!!!!!
I snapped these pics the same day as the Old Fools LO..... I'm pleased how the photos worked when I used the water and glass paper technique to remove the back ground .

A close up of the water and glass paper tech..., stitching and bling rub distressed flowers..

Using more of Bons Jan Kits....the BG paper feels and looks like leather or something, but it's really paper....

I'm struggling to find the time to get to do more scrapping..... I think I have to accept that I can't change that...... because of my crazy work hours... which makes me extremely tired and I can't do all the challenges I so want to do!!!
