Remember that song ...

yeah ... Yellow ... by Coldplay ....
I love that song, but I have never really been in love with yellow ... sure the song made it seem that yellow was very cool ... but my affair with yellow didn't last long .... until ...

a weekend scrapbooking with my girls .... and oh what a weekend it was!

It started off innocently ... sitting around scrapbooking at Sue's ... then dinner ... and a couple of very yummy yellow Lemon Meringue Martini's .... and then I think we all had a few too many more martini's .... yes they are just that good ... and then we did more scrapbooking ... and wow, those martinis get the creative juices flowing!

Seriously this is one delicious drink, just take equal portions of frozen lemonade concentrate, pineapple juice, vanilla vodka, limoncello and ice.  Blend and voila!  Sunshine in a glass!
so the next morning ... we need to head out to Mink for fabulous coffees ... and the walls have some yellow ... and well other colours ... but look at the pretty yellow ... these are all labels of their chocolate  bars, and if you have never had a Mink chocolate bar, or Mocha ... then I feel for ya!
Sue, Kathy, Izzy, Sue and Iris ... we have a 3rd Sue but she couldn't make it.   Morning Mochas at Mink!  (My favourite bar .... "By Any Other Name" ... yummy!)
So since we were in a little outdoor mall,  we did some shopping, but near the end of the shopping a few of us diehard scrappers were anxious to get back to scrapping, so to pass the time, we played with the yellow courtesy umbrellas .... hey it was a great photo op, what can I say???  lol!
Doesn't yellow make everything look happier!!!

and look ... a yellow line down the middle of the road ... how cool, they must have known we were rocking the yellow that weekend! 

oh yeah, I did not take these photos, my friends did ... i was rocking my little Instax that weekend and I am going to make a little mini album about my yellow weekend ... soon!

Fast forward a couple of weeks, and I made a scrapbook page of my daughter in Yellow!  geez. I am really getting fond of the colour, I am going to have to pop up itunes and listen to that Coldplay song again!
My two beautiful girls!

Yellow is such a happy colour. I'm always amazed when I hear that someone isn't fond of it. Looks like you have a great group of friends!

What fun you gals must have had. The Martinis look delish and your morning mochas sounds like a perfect way to start the day.
