More scrapping fun

was had this week-in class we created a beautiful clock, which I forgot to take a photo of yet! Der! I have it up in my scrapping room, I can now keep a tab on the hours I while away in there....hehe.It was completed during my weekly fix at Created By You.I absolutely love it!

Well, this week I have done just sooo much scrapping, and at present I have another layout sitting on my table, mid-way through.It has been a productive week!
This one of Nichole and Jakob was created for the Weekend Workout, on Scrapapple.The challenge this weekend was to use a one word title, beginning with "A". I was really pleased with how this one turned out, and oh so grateful to the talented,kind Nicole Finlayson for her invaluable stitching lessons! The little bits of stitching really finished the page.I am becoming addicted!!!

I completed this layout, with one of Nicole's stitching classes.Isn't the layout divine? I was over the moon with the way it turned out-THANKYOU NIC!!!-I am so glad to have done this class, and can't wait to try more stitching;)

Today we went out shopping for a new couch! Yay- except the service assistants were really slack, and people kept pushing in, and we left with nothing ...:( I was so looking forward to a new couch too, the one we have is hideous, it is a mushroom colour, it was a hand -me-down, which is great, except I have red and blue feature walls, and pink just looks feral!!!! I plan on repainting the lounge wall, once we have a new wall unit, as the one we have at present is too hard for me to move myself! Then my wall will become a lovely chocolate/taupe colour, which should look alot better, as the couch we want is brown too.Fingers crossed, Jacob will go back on Tuesday, and that will mean a new mattress too-oh my aching back will finally be relieved somewhat!

In other news, I have managed to track down a long lost mate of mine, who I have known since i was 16. His name is Rob, and we used to generally runamuck, get drunk(LOL) and have funtogether! He was my then boyfriends' best mate, and we used to have a blast, talk about anything, and share a passion for Commodores! I rang his sister, whom I had to trace via another old friend, and another, and she had Rob ring me.I know time has passed, but it feels nice to have reclaimed some of my lost past, and I aim to catch up with a few more people before the end of 2008.Due to my moving, and breaking up with said boyfriend, it just got hard, but now it is all great-I have missed the laughs we shared, and can't wait to catch up on lost times.

Thanks for reading, and I'd best go and finish my layout! Take care, and don't do anything I wouldn't do, lol!
