I'm Lovin' It

You may have heard Noel Coward's quote 'only mad dogs and Englishmen go out in the midday sun'.......well that was us in Egypt......went into town one afternoon.......over 40 degrees.......nearly all cafes outdoors......no air conditioning anywhere......after a couple of hours we thought we might die......then we saw it.......the most welcoming sight ever.....McDONALDS.......we opened the door......and walked into a fridge......spent 2 hours eating ice cream, drinking iced water and chilling out.
McDonalds is not on my usual visiting list......probably haven't been in one since......but that afternoon.....it was the best place on the planet........so I salute you Ronald McDonald!!!!
And I've managed to combine prompts from 2 classes here!!!
Shimelle suggested a 'columns' page........to use up leftover strips.......and I've plenty of those......and the page is perfect for Camp Scrap's Wednesday 'story' prompt.
Finally........over on SJ's blog.....she giving away a lovely digi freebie today.....perfect if you're taking Shimelle's class......go take a look.

There is a strange sense of irony when a McD's becomes a welcome respite from the world!

Well you've got to cool down somehow and their icecream is really nice and COOL. Love the layout Jacky. Wish we had some of that sunshine here, still nothing! and thats from 1st July.

I am completely with you on this one! MacDonalds in Rome was a very welcome sight for us one very hot day a few years ago. This is a gorgeous layout Jacky..I think it's one of my favourites of yours. Lovely.

lol! McD's has some uses then? (Other than for bribing kids?!) Great layout, love the use of all the strips. I agree with Sian - one of my favourites of yours! xx

I can feel the heat in this Jacky!!! I think it's the choice of colors and also the photos.
Great job!

Add Australians to this list Jacky - though often we have to be in the heat because that is just what it is like in the summer!

We only ever seem to go in McDonalds when we are abroad too.

Great story, and great layout. I always try to avoid chains when we're traveling, but I know I would have been right there with you!

This is one of my fave pages. I love the papers and the torn edges. Absolutely beautiful. Lauren x
