A girl with very little cents...

Today didn't start well. I forgot to set my alarm. I had to be over at Kylie's, to go to a scrapping workshop BY 9am. I was just waking with a terrible fright at 7.54am! The workshop is on the other side of Brisbane and requires a good 45-50min drive. I didn't have time for breakfast, and thankfully Amber had had something to munch. We flew around getting ready and managed to be out of the house at 8.15am. I had to get some money from the ATM at the local shopping centre (another 5 mins) and finally we were on the motorway heading off to North Side. Well I had managed to keep my brain functioning on no breakfast up until the tolls. I did remember to have my change ready and waiting as I pulled in to the toll plaza and up to a waiting toll collector. Almost as if in slow-mo, I lifted my hand with change and promptly smashed it on the divider between the windscreen and the door! A couple of expleatives ensued as I dug in my purse for $5 that I knew was there. Safely on my way again I hoped that would be the last of my no-brainers. Scrapping went great. By this stage I was happily munching my way through a bag of Starburst Jelly Babies - mmmm sugar. I got 2 single layouts complete and started on a two-pager about our flooded river. The rest of the day went smoothly until it was time to travel home. Now I was getting a little woozy from lack of lunch, headed off in the car and arrived back at the toll booths for round 2. No sooner had I said the words "now it better not happen again" and 20 cents flew out of my hand onto the floor of the car. This time I was approaching the unmanned toll booth. Hmmmm. Grabbed the coin back, held onto it with a vice grip and put it as far into the collection tray as I could. Thankgod I was free to go. I've decided that I don't like Toll Plaza's, it's probably how they make real money - all the dropped coins probably roll into a big coin drain, and secretly most of us are paying $5-$6 every time we cross the bridge - and now they are building a new one! Any way enough of my cursed coins. Here are my layouts:
