Silly Girl

Morning All. I hope you had a lovely weekend. A front came in and we had gorgeous weather full of sunshine and chilly temps. It was great! While the cabinets were being painted, I sat in my scrap room for a few hours and managed to get some pages done.

The layout below is one of my daughter from this summer. I had the camera outside to take a few nature pics and of course she had to get a few in too. She was such a character yelling, "Do me, Mom". So we had a quick, impromptu photo shoot. She is so silly and can brighten even my gloomiest of days.

Thanks for visiting. Have a blessed week!

Holiday ATC's

Just wanted to share a few of the ATC's that I was playing around with on Wednesday. I created three. They are all fairly simple with some sparkle added in for good measure.

Like I said before, nothing fancy. I just wanted to play around a bit while the work is being done in the kitchen. A girl has got to stay creative even during chaos.

Have a blessed weekend!

There really isn't too much going on here today, well, at least not in the studio. The kitchen remodel is in full swing. The floor was completed yesterday and now the cabinets are being started. The dust and mess is horrible. Worth it I am sure, but yuck!

So here is my desk this morning. I am playing around with Christmas ATC's just so I can stay inspired. I don't want a lot of my supplies out because they will get covered in filth, but a girl has to have a little fun amid the chaos. I have out my stack of holiday stamps and a few copics. I am fussy cutting a few images in between loads of laundry. (The washer and dryer were put back in early this morning.) Like I said, not making anything too fancy, just trying to stay creative.

That's it for me this week. I will try to be better at getting around to more desks than last week. If you want to see more spaces, then join our wonderful hostess, Julia for a peek into what others are crafting.
Thanks for your visit!

Checking In

Morning all! I have been MIA the last few weeks due to lots of things going on around here. First, my computer did some automatic updates and somehow downloaded a virus to the motherboard, so the keyboard would freeze up and start typing on its own. Really freaky, huh? Evidently, this is a problem going around according to the HP website. Then my dh and I started a major kitchen remodel a week ago, starting with the removal of tile. What a mess! YUCK!!! I feel like I even have dust in my teeth. Fortunately, the new floor is starting to go in today. Next up, cabinets, paint, backsplash, and new fixtures. Trying to get it all done before the holidays.

So as you can see, I haven't had much time for a lot of scrapping. I did manage to get a couple of pages and a card done before we started. Todays layout is from the Fourth of July, which just happens to be my birthday. My dh loves to grill and this is one day I don't mind letting him do so. I get the day off from cooking and cake too!

This layout was created using the Simple Stories Summer collection and inspiration was taken from from a Pagemaps sketch from Becky Fleck.

Well, I hope you are all having a good week! Thanks for visiting and I hope to not be away for such a long time, again.
