"Bath Time or Shower" Sweet Sketch Wednesday Sketch # 71

"April Shower"

Well hello everyone it Wednesday and you know that it's Sweet Sketch Wednesday time again. Today is the 13th October the day before my sisters 60th Birthday getting old isn't she I remember when she turn 50 and I thought that was old and now but it wasn't at all. When you read my blog I would have arrived up in Cairns Australia, and we are staying in an apartment at Trinity Beach the temperature should be around 31 Celsius. We'll be relaxing more up here by the pool and going out to the Great Barrier Reef, going up the Barron Fall by rail to Kuranda and then travelling back by Sky Rail through the Rain Forest. We hope to go up to Port Douglas and also visit a Crocodile farm. Swimming, eating and of course a few drinks or two or three.

Now on with the show.

I know that you've been waiting all week haven't you for another wonderful sketch from our very own talented Arlana. Another great one Arlana.

This week our Sponsor is Cheryl from

When you've got a moment to yourself take a look at what wonderful eye candy the rest of the the Design Team have put together for you over at Sweet Sketch Wednesday.

I know that it's very popular in Ireland as well, as I've been there for Halloween, dressing up, heaps and heaps of Candy and Chocolate and green mashed potato's and a Ginness or two (I make green mash potatoes for St Patrick's Day in New Zealand my boys love it).
