Jack and Morocco

I've been really enjoying scrapping over the past couple of days, and am happy with the layouts I've done. On Friday afternoon I did this one, which is this week's jack on ScrapJacked - Meghan Dymock. I had this photo and title (a song title from a jazzy track Bjork once covered) worked out for awhile and wanted it just like this - big title all over the left side, photo at right - so this jack was perfect inspiration to do it. I loved grunging it up a bit with rough outlines etc.
Yesterday morning I dismantled our bed all ready for the guy who bought it on ebay - he picked it up at about 10, and seeming quite amazed at what a nice area it is out here. You'd think we were in the middle of nowhere, LOL, which is of course why I like it - hills, trees, kookaburras and only 40 minutes to the city. Not that we need to go there often with Knox nearby. Hmm. I wouldn't mind really living in the country one day. As long as we had good internet!

OK getting waaaaaay off topic here. Kell then helped me pick up the new bed I had on layby at Freedom, and we then spent the afternoon munching and scrapping at her place. I did one layout there using the Candytown collection from ScrapInStyle, of Ash playing his little piano.
At dinner time we dropped the bed off at my house before heading off to Chirnside Park where I was picking up an ebay purchase. We had dinner at Nando's before heading over to Danni's for a bit of an EB girls crop night! I did two layouts there, first one is for Sketches Oz so I will show it when they are uploaded there in a few weeks. The second one is for Kiti Q using the Morocco range, with some Hambly rub-ons also from Kiti Q.


So today I felt pretty rubbish when I woke up but got motivated enough after awhile to tidy up our room. Ben had put together the bed yesterday, so I just finished it off by screwing the slats into the frame, and making the bed. I also removed the shelves that had been on our wall - they were really just leftover from when it was Sienna's room a couple of years ago, so I took them down and then installed them above Sienna's bed instead.


In the process of cleaning up the bedroom I had to sort some boxes of fabrics, and found these two little cushion covers I made a couple of years ago from vintage fabrics, felt and crochet trim. So I decided I would make them an odd sort of RAK - anyone who would like the cushion covers just leave a comment saying if you like them, and I'll pick a name out in a couple of days.
