On Safari, Blythes (again) and Sherbet Fountains!!!! ooh and i've been tagged!!!

~Hiya all,
~Firstly I'm all better!! YAY!! No more swine flu, and I've finished the tamiflu - I had my first day out on Friday and it was great just to get out of the house.

~On Friday I also managed to get this layout done for Katy's new challenge blog Dotty Diva's, which gives a different Ad each month so go over and check it out. Meantime this is my take on the challenge..........
~The photo is of me sitting on the boat ready to go to monkey island at Blair Drummond Safari Park at the beginning of the month.

~So my blythe doll has now been shipped and I cannot wait till she gets here!!!! She now has a name, I decided to call her Darby but both Beth and Lisa said Violet - so her name is Darby Violet. I have decided that all my blythe's will have flowers as middle names so there is a running theme!!!! I can't stop looking at her, so here's another pic.........
~I have also bought this outfit for her from Jolielenie's Etsy shop...... she's also doing me another custom outfit - so hopefully they will be here soon too!!!
~Lastly, but certainly not leastly..... have you seen the new sherbet fountain packaging????

~I HATE it. I like the days when it was a cardboard tube, and the liquorice was poking out the top of the packet - now they've gone all protective and put a covering on it...... suckfesty!!! I bought one yesterday and was SHOCKED at this change. All of the sweeties that were around when I was little have changed - either the packaging, the name (opal fruits anyone?) or they've taken all the colour out so now you've got peely wally smarties!!! GRR. Anyway stepping down off my soap box!!!

~Oooh i meant to add, i was tagged by the lovely Maggi, on her blog Just Add Glitter and Stir. I have to:
So this is what I'm suppose to do:

1. Collect the book that you have most handy
2. Turn to page 161
3. Find the 5th complete sentence
4. Cite the sentence on your blog
5. Pass it on to 5 other victims (Oops! bloggers)

~Ok so my sentence is:
~"Isabel you seem a bit subdued today" her therapist remarks. From the book But Inside I'm Screaming by Elizabeth Flock

~Ok so I'm going to tag for following 5 victims...... or bloggers if you may :D :P
1. Jodie
2. Debs
3. Calia
4. Lisa
5. Michelle

I'm off for now, I'll be back later in the week with photos of the gorgeous Darby Violet taken on my new camera - less than 2 days to go!!
~Vicki xx

I'm so glad you are feeling better! That doll is cute. Love it!

Sarah C said...

Absolutely love your LO.

Totally agree with you about the sweets. Starburst just doesn't have the same ring to it does it? And they've modernised the wording on Love Hearts too!!! I preferred Dip Dabs to Sherbert Fountains as I hate licquorice.

Have you seen this site? xxx

Lisa T. Howard said...

Oooooh! I LOVE the name Darby Violet and the idea of using flowers as middle names is fantastic! I love anything with a "theme".

So glad you are better, my friend. That had to be a horrible, horrible thing to go through. But you did survive!

Your layout is bright and favorite kind of LO. I must admit I had a giggle over your candy diatribe. I don't know any of the candies you mentioned?!?!? LOL! Must not be able to get them here, huh?

Thanks for tagging me! I will be certain to post this on my blog this week! Hope you have a wonderful Monday! xoxo L.

ooooh man!!
that sherbet fountain, its different to ours (ours are red)
but anyway, i used to get em as a kid in the cardboard tube and they ruled, then about a month ago they came back out again!!!! i was excited but then i saw its in a freakin plastic tube with a screw on lid, and thats not cool it doesnt taste the same either, what a dissapointment.

anyway congrats on the new doll yay i cant wait to seeeee pics.
i need one of the new ones, i need peppermint <3
im not gunna get punkaholic so she will be nice instead.
