I've had the CHOP

I have been umming and ahhing whether to chop my hair and today I went to my hairdresser and decided to change the colour and to chop it. I have not had my hair this short in over 15 years....I always have my hair light blonde but you always ended up looking now with my nice new hairstyle it's longer at the sides and shorter at the back I will be able to spend less time doing my hair.

In scrapping news have been mainly doing my Countdown to Christmas album and some Bumble Bee projects will be back to share some pics.. I have my last crop of the year This Saturday night and it's booked out looking forward to it hopefully I will be able to get some stuff done.

Last weekend we took the kids into the city to see the Myers Windows, Crown Atrium, and the Big Chrissy Tree we had perfect weather and the kids had a fantastic time they loved the windows...

Have a good weekend will be back with some scrapping projects
