...and the weekend is almost over...

I think I just had the worst week of my life. First was a last minute trip to KL for a meeting. Now that in itself wasn't too bad if it weren't for the fact that The Hubby was away too so thank goodness for my parents who had to take the boys in. Now I'm not too familiar with KL but my hotel was just behind the KLCC so I was looking forward to some shopping there and maybe a quick trip to Scrappingville too. Unfortunately, I came down with a bug that had me puking my guts out the whole of sunday. I don't think I've ever become so familiar with a hotel room toilet before. On Monday, the nausea abated but the diarrhoea kicked in and trying to concentrate was excruciating especially during and after lunch.

I flew back early Weds morning, went straight to work in the afternoon and ended up staying at work till 11.30pm. The next day wasn't any better with a 10pm end to my work day. Friday was slightly better as I managed to get home for dinner at half seven but there was an 8am meeting on Saturday. Was I ever so glad that the weekend is now here but then The Hubby had to go to Limbang for a funeral on Sat afternoon and then fly to KL today. So I don't think that we've spent a full 24hrs together as a family all week.

My eczema has flared up in full force and no I've not lost any weight. Last night I was commenting to SIL3 that she looked as if she had lost lots of weight and she said it was due to lack of sleep. Boy, if that was me, I'd be ANTM skinny...oh how i wish!!

I was too tired all week to scrap and also missed the deadlines for 2 challenges (Shabby's and Scrappin Kids) but do have something to show.


Materials:- Textured Cardstock: Bazill Basics; Patterned Paper, Foam shapes: American Crafts; Alphabet Stickers: Provo Craft; Others: Corner rounder and various circle punchers.

This is another scrap-lift and I had lots of fun doing it. Used lots and lots of 3D Pop Dots and layered the circle punch outs over one another. The photo of the LO is a little grainy but I like the red border and the kraft colour cardstock (from Ruey's kit). I had some journaling in mind but didn't wanna mess up the design so I ended up doing my journaling at the back of the LO.

I missed the 2 challenges for end of Oct but did finish the photo swap LO I did for Panda. Panda, we gotta meet up for me to pass it to you soon ok.

Bug season, and yet you're still at work! How'd you do that?

Love the circles. And you say you can't match colours, they look great. The shapes are fantastic! I've made over ten books in the past week, will post as soon as I take pictures of them. Am in the mood to make books lately, must take advantage of mood...
