We had to have gelato at least once a day while we were in Italy or 2 or 3 times LOL !!!! Loved it these photos were taken a gelato store in Rome near the Piazza Navona that we went to last to last time we were in Rome 2 euro for a huge cone yummo the best and cheapest gelato around.

OMG it took me ages to bloody finish this one couldn't decide on what to use for title or what embellishments to use, I think I ended up going a bit overboard with the buttons in the top right corner but oh well.

Sneak Peak

Just a little sneak peak of a mini album I have made for a friends new baby boy, she had a little boy who was stillborn at the same time Lilly was born and she has been trying for another baby this whole time. I am so happy for her and husband that their dream of bring a healthy baby home has finally come true.

RIP Grandma

Well my grandmother passed away last which is quiet sad, she has had kidney problems for about the last 12mths and had been in and out of hospital for a while now, they took her off all her medication and she was just having pain mediaction to make her comfortable. It was good that my parents were down there and were able to spend the last couple of days with her, she is free of pain now and left us in her sleep about 11.30pm last night.

I feel a bit strange about it all I wasn't close to her and probably only ever met her about 7 times. I have been thinking about going to the funeral all morning but with it being in the Blue Mountains it is just too hard and complicated to get there without driving and I dont want to drive all that way on my own with Charlize, so I decided I wouldn't go too much happening her at the moment too.

Ok thats it for now might head off to bed I think.

Ok so I did another holiday LO, lol I couldnt help myself I actually think I like this one. The aqua really pops out in the title.

My Mum and Dad have headed off to Lithgow today my Grandma is back in hospital and they told my Dad they are just making her comfortable at this stage. Dad talked to her last night and he said she could hardly talk, so it isnt looking good. Not sure when they will be back I guess will have to wait and see what the Dr's say when they get down there.

Well must go veg out in front of the TV while pork chop is asleep, oh and I finished uploading photos from our trip to our webpage if anyone wants to see them

Ok signing off now.

Another holiday Lo this one was from when we were in Tuscany in a Little town called Greve in Chianti the place we stayed was so nice it had a pool and beautiful lush gardens, Charlize had a ball playing in the pool even though the water was freezing.

Not sure if I am really liking this one maybe i need to take a break from scrapping holiday photos and try something different struggling a bit to come up with ideas atm.
