The Color Room #21

This is my entry for the Color Room this week. I found the colours quite hard to work with. At first the pinks looked as though they were mauve. What a mish mash it turned out to be.

A close-up. I love these little fences!

This past weekend Lindy and I drove to Lake Keepit (Gunnedah) for a retreat. We had a fantastic time and caught up with a couple of dear friends. My car was packed to the hilt with our gear. We stayed in Glenn Innis the first night and on the way home stayed at Warwick.
Just a few pics from the weekend.

The Color Room Pallette #20

I found the Color Room hard this week because I'm not a big fan of purple. I really like the way this layout turned out though.

The Color Room #18

When I first looked at this pallette I thought I didn't like it but it's a little while since I've done a "boy" page I decided to go with it. I quite like how it turned out,


Went to the Ekka yesterday with Marina (DIL) and James (DGS) and had a great day! Haven't been for years but was pretty tired when we got home, with all the walking. Lots of people but not really spending much. Only food and show bags. Some of the rides were awesome...not that we went on any!
Here's a few photos of the day. Was mostly overcast so not very good day for pic taking.
Marina and James in the middle of sideshow alley.

One of the winnings...he would only play things where he could win Spongebob!!

Playing Arabian Derby. This was great fun!

Oh what a mouth!

The Color Room #17

Another Colour Room done and dusted. I found this weeks colours quite hard but managed to put something together.
