Too Much Spending!!

I have been deserted by my husband for 12 days, he has flown off to China to visit a friend who has been working out there for just over a year. He went last year and I seem to remember thinking then, never again, but here we are doing it again!!! Anyway he is having a whale of a time and has visited some amazing places. I have missed him like crazy and will be so glad to see him on Sunday night when he gets back although sadly he has to start back to work on Monday late shift.

Guilin one of the places he has visited. It just looks absolutley stunning, sorry the photo is so small.

Life has been very hectic since he has been gone, the Sister has been away on holiday so I have been in charge at work. We had an eventful time with all the snow, we had four patients left stranded with us at the end of the day last Friday and had to admit one in the end as we just couldn't get him home. I ended up slipping and sliding across Dorchester to the train station to get home as I couldn't drive my car. Definitley a day to remember!! Oh yes also because of all the rain we had a major water leak at work and the works department had to pull half the ceiling down. It never rains but pours.....literally!!

On the retreat that I went on a few weeks ago I used a cricut for the first time, I was hooked and I am now the proud owner of a cricut expressions! Both the girls have loved using it and have made welcome home cards for Justin. It took me a while to decide to take the plunge and buy one purely due to the cost but bit the bullet in the end and did it. I seem to have spent rather a lot on scrapping lately. Sarah is expecting some gorgeous new stash in the shop from CHA so I am going to wait until she has all of it in and then make myself choose! Two of the ranges that I definitley "need" are Crate Paper and Fancy Pants, they are just gorgeous!

I haven't had much time for scrapping and the time I have had has been used doing a project that I can't share but will be published in the near future :)

I was asked to be a guest designer for Scrapagogo for one month and that has gone live now so I can show you one of my LOs. I loved using the kit and it was a challange as I wasn't allowed to use any of my own stash.

My favourite layout of the ones that I created for Scrapagogo.
