I really lost my scrapping mojo because my brain has been full of thoughts lately! having this week off and the fact that the mail man bought me 2 yummy scrapbook kits to play with has inspired me to scrap. This morning I woke up at 8am and scrapped these two layouts with the Sweet Spuds kit. The above layout is of Roxie as a kitten!
That brings me onto why I have not been blogging so much! I have been soooooooo upset at work lately! I won't bore you with the details but the company is not run well, certain members of staff think they run the place and get away with things all the time, knowone listens to you! I am in finance and I really struggle with it! but I have been forced to take on more then I can manage and I am making mistakes! I try so hard but I just am not good at finance. I have been looking for a new job for a while as some of you regular readers will know!
I was actually going to hand my notice in at work..........and I nearly did, until......................My friend Jennie and I at work (who also hates it there) started talking a month ago about how much we would like to travel around Australia for a month and go to places like LA on the way! and I started really looking into it. I knew Jennie was not 100% sure because she has things to sort out at home first! but in the last week we are still really looking into it, and have booked an appointment with a travel agent in London next Thursday to get a quote. I have £3000 saved ($6000) and have four months to save as we want to go in 4 months! I will be leaving work before we go! because we only get 20 days holiday a year and for this we would need 25 which we do not have and they won;t let us have it unpaid. I want to go travelling and know that I do not have to go and work there again. I will make sure I have a bit of money for when I come home to get by, and I will have to do temp work but this is a once in a lifetime oppertunity! and I am sooooooooooo excited! I just hope it happens. xxxxx

I am back!!!!! with a brand new Sony laptop! the same one as James Bond has LOL!
Its on my credit card which is not good..........but I could not live without a laptop and my 2 year old laptop was going to cost alot of money to be fixed. I wanted a new laptop by Christmas anyway so whats a few months early? haha.
- I have had alot of time to think being away from the computer and not scrapping for ages! work is getting me down and I know its time for me to leave, but there are not many jobs around at the moment.
- I have the latest Sweet Spuds kit to play with but have ran out of glue!
- I am growing out my hairstyle! it was like Victoria Beckhams but now I am growing it into one length bob.
- I am loving Ben & Jerry's Cookie Dough Ice-cream! and have eaten a whole tub in 3 days!
- I need to get my lazy butt into the gym again! but I am too tired today and would rather go shopping! even though I have no money because I have bought this laptop.
I hope to be scrapping soon xxx

I am using my brothers computer to type this! and look at my emails quickly!
He is studying for his exams though and so I won't be able to use this much until next week.
I am torn between getting it fixed or buying a new laptop!
In the meantime, I am sorry I have been a rubbish blogger and I have not been commenting much on blogs and galleries!
I hope to be back ASAP xxxxx

I used this months gorgeous Dozens Kit for both of these layouts! I love these kits they just keep getting better and better.
Now this layout is of my parents and my Aunt and Uncle at the Grand Canyon. They went to Las Vegas in November last year and this paper was perfect for a layout of the Canyon! my mum is going to frame this layout and put it somewhere in the house!
