God never fails me...

Yesterday was not the greatest day of my life. My mobile was stolen from my sling bag while I was shopping yesterday. Granted I got some great deals on clothes, but that was a good phone -- 3 years old but still worth more than I saved on clothes.

I just wish whoever took it (imagine having the gall to unzip my purse!) uses the money for something worthwhile. I'm just thankful that was how it happened because, on hindsight, Luis was with me at the time, and at least he was unaware of what had happened. It could have been worse. It was a female thief, for sure, because I would have noticed if there was a guy searching beside me thru the racks and piles of clothes at Plains n Prints Galleria.

So now with my SIM blocked, my temporary pre-paid number and my old phone, I'm trying to put my phone book together. This one is going to be tougher and will take a while. At least now all hubby needs to decide on is which particular model to get me for my birthday next month!

On to the good news...

I open my Inbox this morning to find an email from Absolument Scrap inviting me to be part of their International DT!

Now, if the Eiffel Tower and the Champs Elysee aren't enough reasons for me to go to France, this sure is! Absolument Scrap is a French company that started out with rubber stamps, but is now getting into papers and other embellishments. Woo hoo! Time to brush up on my French!

What a great ending to an otherwise depressing week. I was so busy with Luis' exams, Poveda mommy duties, cake decorating and Working Mom projects that I wasn't able to scrap a single page! Have to make-up for it big-time...after I upload the September issue of Scrapbytes, that is.
