So much to say!

I have been the worse blogger EVER I know! I have had so much going on in my life.......I will talk about that in a minute! this week I am am on leave! I went to see some friends in Manchester! and went to Brighton on Saturday! went shopping yesterday and am just chilling out! which is soooooooooo nice for a change!

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!

This months Sweet Spuds kit was outdoorsy/hippy themed and so I chose this photo to scrap of my dad, brother and I camping here in the UK West Country 5 years ago! we used to go here alot, it was a 6 hour drive and we all loved it! no cars, riding our bikes, sports, the forest and swimming pool. Even the rain did not ruin our fun! I used some orange paint on this layout which greated a fun and new effect! I was in an experimental mood this morning LOL. I also used an owl kitty robot button which looks perfect with the theme of the layout, check out HERE as their shop has had a huge update of new buttons!

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

Guess Who Is Back????

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

Broken Laptop

Sorry for the lack of updates! my laptop has broke and so has the power lead!
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 am Back!!!!

I am back! I am sorry I have been a rubbish blogger but I have been Ill! I have come online a little bit to comment on layouts and blogs but I have not been my normal self! that and the fact that I have been super busy ment any time I have had to myself I have been laying in bed with a DVD! but I am good now and back scrapping!!!!!!!!! This is for the latest OLW challenge! I had to use these photos of my mum and I making a wish at the Trevi Fountain in Rome, she kept saying "Remember Nik you only get one wish" so I had to think about it carefully. See if you can see the cute little blue bird Kitty Robot button!

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!

Here are a couple of my latest 365 photos! I am now behind! my new little miss giggle top! which suits me because everyone calls me a "Giggler". and my new nail varnish, the color is beautiful.

Tonight I am going to see Sex And The City with my cousian and out for a pizza! I cannot wait to see this movie!!!!

Some of you may know that I am a DT member for Kitty Robot! and I thought it was about time I wrote an entry about my favorite products! and show some layouts of how I used the buttons!

I must say that Kitty Robot buttons are my favorite embellies! there are soooooo many varieties and the quality of the product is amazing!

The newest addition to the shop is these BRIGHT GLASSED - cute bright and fun buttons handmade from sculpey clay! I have just seen them today and they are my new favorites! they are bright and funky and have alot of detail to them!
Here is a layout I have created using these fun BRIGHT sculpey buttons - set of 9, polymer clay - scrapbooking sewing or craft buttons, (see closup photo below) you can buy them HERE
These buttons I bought months ago long before I was asked to be a DT member! when I got these in the mail I fell in love with these! they so so cute and I cannot explain how much detail is on each button and how much dimention there is! they really make a layout or project stunning.

Here is another layout I made with these bright buttons.

I also wanted to point out these Adorable little owl buttons!!!! I have a couple in my DT pack, I am waiting till I create a layout where these will fit perfect on! again just look at the detail on these!

Eating Hershey's Kisses!

Things have been really busy here the last week! but at last Sunday is here and I slept in until 10am! scrapped this layout for the Scrap Mojo Challenge, and have watched some of the first series of SATC I am kind of having a marathon of the whole box set before I watch the film.

I am in love with these Dymo labels and keep buying them! I keep using them for the back of envelopes and packages! I cannot get enough of the Dymo.
I went for a meal in Covent Garden yesterday and bought some of these gorgeous cupcakes! I could not resist! they are little yummy pieces of art and I love this photo I took.

I have started the gym again! Its alot of money because its an exclusive gym where only people over 18 can join and everything is modern and just lovely! but I need somewhere like that to motivate me to go and get fit!!!!
I have been spending my money Friday ordering online! I have ordered this "Little Miss Giggles" Top! thats so me!!! I am always giggling! I love funny people because they make me laugh I am not a funny person but I like to laugh at people who make me laugh........If that makes any sense lol! people always say to me "what you laughing at?" or "you are such a giggler"

Have a wonderful Sunday, I am going to keep watching SATC I want to be on seies 3 by the end of the day and its 2.30pm so looks like I will be up till midnight!
I have tomorrow off as it is a national holiday so I can stay up late.
