Back from NZ

Well we had an amazing holiday in New Zealand. The weather was picture postcard perfect. We barely needed a jumper. It was so great to catch up with friends and family and I know we could have stayed Much longer. But we could only find time for a whistle stop tour so that was what it had to be. After Australia, New Zealand is amazingly green. And it felt so much like home, which of course it is! I took lots of photos, and still havent downloaded them all. But what I have seen so far looks pretty good.
Of course we came back from holiday and straight back into work. Mike had Uni and I had work the following day, so there really has been no let up. However I decided today that I was finally going to make my April desktop as I am pretty behind on that one. I have made a freebie to download as well. Here is our version featuring Mike's daughter Sarah at her graduation.
Naturally I have included a png file for you to download so you can make your own version. I used an older kit of Sarah's for this desktop, because it seemed to go so well with the more formal layout. And the really good news is that it is still available Free on her blog. So it might be worth checking out!
Here is the link to download the desktops. Have fun with them. Love to hear back if you like them! And as i said before head on over to Sara's blog because at the moment this kit is still in the freebies section and it might not be there much longer.
Now I told you last week that I was making a template as a freebie. Being me it is one that uses lots of photos so i am just tidying up the numbering etc before putting it up on the blog. But.. here is the big news. The collab kit Bollywood was released while i was away so you can see my layout... and maybe decide if you want to come back for the template.
The bollywood kit is another sizzling bright combination with a totally cool bollywood theme (yeah i know the name says that) so it is worth checking out over at Here is a little look.. and of course if you have a look round the designers blogs I know there are a few freebies that are worth picking up!
Pretty fun looking huh? And like everything at scrapthatidea it is good value for money! enjoy!
