JAI#44...Colour Challenge & It's going to be quiet on the blog front...

Hi there ~

A quick little post to let you know my modem died a few days ago and I'm having a few dramas with the courier company who is to deliver the replacement! In the meantime I've been absolutely lost without my beloved internet so I purchased a portable broadband USB modem - ahem I can tell you it's SLOWER than dial-up! Pages continue to crash and it's not even worth thinking about checking in on my favourite blogs! Soooo disappointed in it.

Hopefully I can at least upload my JAI submission. This week was a colour challenge ... and challenge it was for me! Individually I like all of these colours, but together I had a hard time making them work. Anyway here it is ... hope you like.

The boxes are Lauren Meader's 'tucked away'. So versatile and perfect for giving little treats at this time of the year. The larger box holds 5 Lindt balls perfectly while the smaller holds 2 - I always line my boxes with tissue paper! Head over to Just Add Ink and check out what all the other DT girls have come up with this week - look forward to seeing them myself!

If you have any questions about items used do shout out and I'll get back to you at some point over the next few days. To those of you whose blogs I follow religiously forgive my lack of comments ... I'll have plenty of catching up to do soon :o)

Take care!

PS: This post took about 30 minutes by the time the silly portable modem uploaded and saved! Pathetic!!!
