Happy Mail Day ! World Cup , YOG ...




our Monday evening !
Long awaited by my kids for the vuvuzela 
& all the sweeties !!! 
Fortunately none of my neighbours complained 
about any additional noise coming from our home that evening 
as the kids took turns to blast away . lol . 

Alas , World Cup is a rather distant memory for us here ,
as Singapore hosts the inaugural Youth Olympics, underway now until Aug 26th ! 


Here's a layout I created ,acknowledging the YOG spirit . 
Inspired by the Color Room Palette #19. 
Pics taken at one of our airport terminals - 
there's lots of activities around our island celebrating the YOG ,
including this mini bungee jump . 

Helen included some of her own crochet flowers in her World Cup RAK 
& I put quickly put some to work here : 
Thanks much , hun !!! 






really sweet these flowers are ! 
almost makes me want to take up crochet now ! ;)
