Sunshine and colours!

Huge Hello Everyone!!


Is it just me or is there something wrong with my clock??
Time seems to be slipping through my fingers?

It has taken me a little longer to get the chance to blog, oh boy how i missed you all!! {{{HUG}}}
What a fun filled week, yet again fun overload with Back to back Business law assignments,
did you know 
Persons of unsound mind or intoxicated persons are bound by the contracts they form!!

Unless two conditions can be proven; what are these conditions?
·         That the impaired person did not understand what they were doing because of the condition they were in.
·         That the person with whom the impaired person was contracting knew of the impaired person’s condition.

LOL! just a little snippet of the assignments I'm doing, absolutely brain food Plus!!....lol 

I honestly have no idea how i would incorporate that into a layout ...lol but anywhoo...

I have had a little play with colours this week and BOY! was it wonderful!
i really LOVE this kit from A Piece of Cake designs the colours are something i would normally not choose but i love how the green and pink and the touch blue and grey go so so well together,
i honestly want only to dig out all my sweetheart photos and make a frame or something with these colours :)

I had manager to squeeze in a layout, where you will find at A Piece of Cake Designs Blog :)



 and i also have one more layout and a card to show!! coming up in the next couple of days :)
********************Sneak Peek!**********************

Oh have i mentioned i was lucky enough to get a SMASH* Journal for Mothers day :}

I was super excited to start a little on my SMASH* journal :)

YAY! for SMASH*!!! so so LOVE this new range!! and SO SO LOVE how easy peasy it is to just smash and squish all my  lovely scraps into  :)

Here is a peek at what a smashed the past couple of days  :)

This page is not finished yet, just got to pop in my dreams and goals :)

Now with a little splash of colour on my post it seems like i just want to play a little more with my papers :)
I have a new little goal I'm working on, three days in but I'm in for the long run...hehe
I'm taking up running...
Now if you have ever met me i just don't run...well not anymore :)
I have always been over weight and i have been feeling a little more Yuk than usual
and i believe exercise is missing in my life...
so to battle the bulge and the feeling that I'm just not fit, i have taken up running 
Now i understand i have to start somewhere so
first thing in the morning, hop out of bed and run!
15-20minitue...bit of shock as i mention i don't run nor exercise
but no doubt afterwards i feel more awake...lol

So here is the start of a new chapter in my life, i believe if i can set and achieve goals
as i have done in the past year, this is another goal i will succeed in!

Another good reason to start running is so i can chase my boys around the house!! :)

well i hate to say goodbye so I'll say See you soon!!!

Hope you all have a SUPER HAPPY week darlings!!

Dunno how you fit it all in...but go get 'em, with your running. Afraid at 50 I'm just glad to do the walking thing!!!!

I really love your layout!!! It's stunning. The colours are gorgeous!!! I love your Smash journal too! Looks super funky and fun! Best of luck with your running! You will totally feel better for it I think! And you are right - you'll feel more awake! It's weird how you have more energy in the day after exercising! :D

Your work is gorgeous Samantha! I love the layout with the black background! I jumps right out at you. :) Your Smash journal looks fab too. I like the idea, but haven't got around to actually doing it. If you keep on showing me your gorgeous journal, I might just have to start one myself! Hope you are having a good week. xx

Stunning work Sam.
I just love the gorgeous colours in your layout- they really pop against the black.
Love the smash journal too- I have never "smashed" before but it looks super fun.
Wow- running, studying, crafting and being a mummy! How ever do you find the time!? Keep up the awesome work x

Samantha I would never have said you are overweight...you look beautiful in all the photos I see of you.You go girl in the running ..I am a bit the same, but have taken up Tae Kwon Do again after 18 years away from it.I really wanted the boys to do this and so I went back and love it just as much as they do.I am actually gradin on the weekend for High red, which is one belt away from black belt...eeek.
I gotta tell you, every time I visit your blog you inspire me with your funky, colourful creations.Thank you for doing that.Hope you are having a wonderful week so far.x

I SO envy you being able to set and STICK to your goals SamIam - huge hugs to you...well done on starting to exercise...yep I started about 3 months ago too (just a little different to the 'norm' I started doing things I call "gardening workouts" LOL) I discovered I hate the weeds more than I hate exercise and yep its amazing how I;ve actually started to enjoy it and the exercise in the garden most days about 20-45 mins, has made a difference to the way I feel....and I've lost some of those "much needed to lose" kilos too...so I hope the running helps you too....your art and inspiration continues to keep me alive too...just a little (ignoramus lol) question...what on earth does "smash" mean...I mean I love what you've done, but what do you do to 'smash"?????? I LOVE your work SamIam..keep it up sweetness - have a great week too xxx LOL Mz <3 <3
