Scrapping and some other news...

Kim has recently opened the June Snippets class. This is a great double layout for recording a month of pictures and a bit of journalling. I've gone with a bit of a shabby chic look with my sample. Here are a few peeks. The class also includes a great single layout designed by Mel Nunn.

Some other news...
Dave phoned me at work this afternoon (I work Thursdays and Fridays and he has those days off). "I just got home and found a guy breaking into our house!". He and Tassy walked into the house and heard a crash from Tassy's bedroom. So he went in there to find a guy had broken her window to get to the lock to open it. Unfortunately for him it was locked with a key which wasn't in the lock, so he was trying to prize it open. Our windows are heavily tinted so Dave got pretty close to the window before the guy could see him thru the hole he'd made, then he ran off, scaling the fence on his way. He was so bold... he'd parked his car right outside our house! Dave got the number plate and gave it to the police. We're really lucky Dave came home at the right time and the guy didn't actually get in. We had to get the window replaced tonight (we worship you Obrien) and that's not cheap! Thanks loser!

oh no Yvette! That totally sucks and such good timing on hubbie's part. If he had gotten in, who knows what he would have done if he was cornered in your house. Best he had the opportunity to just run off. It must have scared the hell out of your daughter regardless though!

Wowee! So freaky! Glad all is OK and he didn't get in. Glad you got the number plate too! Hope he gets his just desserts! You should be able to claim your window on insurance?!

Oh Yvette how scary!!! So glad he didn't make it inside and I hope the police caught up with him! Hope Tassy's coping with what happened and isn't too freaked!
