the good, the bad and some scrappy

just a quick one as it is kinda late. i have been mia for the last week as i was studying for a certification exam. and after 3 weeks of training, a week of downing cups of coffee and being a fixture in coffee shops with my heavy books, i passed!hubby has been supportive as always - keeping me company, pacifying me when i have bouts of anxiety attacks and generally making me laugh when i felt like hurling my books. i have the best husband.
the downside to this week was that my phone was stolen in our office. i left it on my desk while i went to lunch like i always do and someone swiped it. i was so upset because it was a gift from hubby. lesson learned.
i hate to end on a bad note so i will just talk a bit of my scrapping. during the week of the exam it took a lot of self-control for me not to scrap so i can focus on studying. so when the exam i planned to go on a scrapping frenzy. but alas, i had to work over the weekend. but i tried to get some scrapping time in between lulls. these are two lo's i finished over the weekend.
the first one is for sketchy thursday's gdt challenge. i love love love how everything turned out and the colors are close to our wedding motif.
the second one is for my mind's eye challenge #11:anything goes. i love this line and was loathe to cut it but i had to remind myself to use up my stuff.
anyway, it is getting late. i need to get some zzz's.
