Rain in Melbourne

Well I mean serious pelting down, wake you up in the night rain. It is wonderful to be finally having some rain, when our dams are at such a low level. But from what I understand we would need weeks if not months of rain to actually break the drought, so I am not holding my breath on that. Still the garden (what survived the summer) will be happy and our water tank will be filled so it is all good. If we could finally get our grey water recycling system installed it would be perfect.
The great thing about rainy weather is it does decrease your desire to go out. So I have been very industrious at home doing some scrapbooking, some scrapbook shopping and trying to tidy up and back up my hard drive. I even did some housework.
So shall I start with the freebie? I decided this morning that it was about time I made something new. So I whipped up this template. I used a really early layout of mine which i still think is kind of cool. Perhaps I wouldnt go for quite such bright colours now.
Here is the link for it. Hope you like it. And as always would love to see what you make. I have a guestbook at the bottom of the page now so you can load your layouts up there. (mike was playing the other day and thought it would be a fun thing to have). As you can see there is still that coupon there for 20% off at scrapthat idea. So it would be worth your while to pop over there and see what you can pick up. Since all their products are dirt cheap it shouldnt be hard to find lots of stuff to buy!
Sara has a new kit in store too called Industrial. It is a great grungy kit with some really interesting elements and if you head over to Sara's blog you can pick up the freebie cluster frame. Not only that the kit is only $3 for the next 48 hrs!!!
Here is what I have made with it so far:So that pretty much covers what I have been up to.. lots of working and a little bit of scrapping. I have to go shopping this week to buy birthday presents for the teenage daughter. But at least she gave me a very clear list. Then later this week i have a run of the dreaded night shifts which always leave me grumpy and out of sorts. Now it is important to remember that the coupon code runs out at the end of April so you only have a few days to go and pick up your bargains!
