Well this week has been a bit of a whirlwind, i can't believe it's Thursday already! Sunday night i went to the Toby Carvery to celebrate Amber's birthday. It was hectic because it was 6 O'Clock on a friggin Sunday, and everyone wants a roast on a Sunday!!! But it was fabulous because we haven't all got together for a while. Monday night i went to Dave's. He has recently started renting a room in his ex-bosses house & it is like a showroom.There wasn't so much as a TV guide in the living room!! It was wierd, i need mess. Tuesday i received my UKS cybercrop class kit from Shimelle and despite strict instructions not to open it until the cybercrop, i did! In the evening i watched The Life of David Gale. It has an amazing ending, which is quite rare in films i think. Wednesday the lovely Katty cooked me the yummiest nachos i've ever had & even managed to get me to eat vegetables & has converted me to quorn mince. We just hung out with her housemate Phill & i don't remember the last time i laughed so much. Today i got sent home from work early because there was a very strange smell in the building. So i have been merrily scrapping since 3.30 this afternoon. I've managed to get 2 circle journals finished & two LO's. This first one is of the Placa Reial in Barcelona. i took the photo while we were queing for a restaurant. kraft coloured cardstock is my all time favourite for scrapping with. i used my first moo card on a LO. i think they are so cute! Paper is BG, chipboard Maya Road, stamp 7gypsies, rub-on American Crafts & i also used bits from an old spanish book i bought in a tiny shop outside the Palau de la Musica. The second LO is of a flower stall in Las Ramblas. i used foam tape to add dimension to the flowers. i'm not very comfortable with those flowers, they are too distracting. i'm thinking i should have gone with something more subtle as i really like the photo, but i'm not changing it now because it took me ages to cut all those out. It's for this week's ColorBlog challenge to 'use lot's of something'. Everything is BG, except the cardstock which i picked up at The Paper Mill Shop for about 20p or something. Tomorrow Michaela is going to try & get us tickets for Keane, as they didn't perform Crystal Ball at the Brighton concert, we have an excuse to see them again. i have so much craziness planned for the next week. i can't wait!

Beautiful layout! I love all of those flowers! I remember that same flower shop from Las Ramblas when we were there last year... am sure I have a (very blurry!) photo of it somewhere in a pile here. :)
