More Scrapbooking...

Last Tuesday night Cyril and I went out to celebrate Valentine's day. We were planning on going to Gekko, but came upon a new Chinese Buffet so decided to try it out. I loved it, the only downside was no tap water and no refills on pop. Loved the food and hope to take my parents there when they visit. After we headed over to see Valentine's Day the movie which I really liked. After we were off to our friend Rahul's place. It was his Birthday so we went over to celebrate with friends with drinks, munchies and a yummy cake. In the photo L to R: Rahul, me, Vasiliki, and Leonie. On Sunday we ventured out to go visit the FREE Discovery Museum. We got side tracked on the way and found the Life Science Center, which was not FREE but was money well spent. We go to see 3 "shows" as well as visit the exhibits. This photo is me "walking" like a reptile on the hot desert sand. It showed you where to put your hands and feet and you lifted the opposite hand and foot at the same time. Looks funny!
This past week I completed 2 Birthday cards, I didn't get pics of them but they are in the mail on the way to their recipients. I did get the pics of the 2 LOs I completed. The first was for a crop at SI. I used a sketch from The Pagemaps site, Feb 2010 page
This LO was for APOS, it was from a Blind Scrap that Icecheeks posted earlier this month that I had not completed so I tackled it last night.

This evening I hope to watch some more of the Olympics as I work on a Scrapbuilders LO from APOS, I have a few days to complete it.
Today I went to drop of an application to volunteer at Oxfam which is down the road. I have an interview with the manager on Friday so hope to start volunteering there soon! Wish me luck!

Out for a stroll....

As I sat and watched the Olypmics last night online I decided to work on my album some more. I got 2 more pages done.
This yellow one I did following a Sketch from APOS forum (see blinkie on the side).

Over the weekend Cyril and I had planned to go to a Free Museum on Saturday, but Cyril woke up feeling under the weather on Saturday so we decided to lay it low in hopes that he would feel more up to it on Sunday. So when we got up on Sunday the weather was decent so we decdied to venture to a near by park instead to enjoy the outdoors rather then be cooped up in the Museum on the nice day. So now we plan on going another weekend. Here are some of the photots I caught while at the park.

Cheers and have a great day. Happy Pancake Day (Shrove's Tuesday). We are heading out to a movie and dinner for our Valentine's Celebration and then out to celebrate a friend's Birthday.

Fun stuff

I had a very productive day yesterday, got 4 pages done for my 8x8 Honeymoon album! Having lots of fun with it and it's going to be finished really soon!

Also had an expensive day today. Went to the train station and bought some tickets. Cyril and I are going to see Jeff Dunham in Sheffield, which is about a 3 hour train ride away. Then I also needed to pick up the tickets for me to go to London and get my parents and bring them back here and for them to return to London for their plane home. One step closer to them being here! :D
Hope to get more pages finished tonight and will be posting them this weekend. No plans for Valentine's on Sunday. We are going out Tuesday instead, to avoid all the crowds and we want to go to a movie so Tuesday is cheap day. Got save money where we can! lol You have any plans?
Off to get a snack! Ciao for now!

Got some exciting news today! My Mom and Dad just booked their flights. They are coming to England to visit Cyril and I! Can't wait for their visit. They will be here in 6 weeks and are staying for 2 weeks with us. We hope to take them to Dublin, Ireland as well as Edinburgh (sp?), Scotland. I'm also having more visitors, my sis and cousin are coming the beginning of May and one of my best friends will be here mid-June. Love having visitors!

Here is some of my work....

Well I have been scrapping over the past few days and have finally got started on my Honeymoon album. It is my first 8x8 I've ever done. Kind of fun but a little challenging at first. I'm so used to putting more on my page and have to learn to cut back a bit.

I also got a few Valentine's Day cards done which I will be placing in the mail soon!

Cyril and I had a good weekend. We got out to the gym on Saturday where he played some football with the guys and I did a workout in the gym. Haven't been to the gym since October so it felt good to get back there. Also we headed down to the river to look at the bridges, we took some pics as well. Here are few:

That's all for now. Did learn a lesson today on this blog creating...upload pics first...then type around! lol
