Naptime layout done!

Supplies: Cardstock is Bazzill. Patterned paper is KI Memories. Journaling tag is KI Memories. Title is American Crafts Thickers. Tickets and heart are from the January Scrapperie kit. Misc. eyelets and staples. Embossing was done with a Cuttlebug embossing plate in a Zip E Mate machine.

Well, I was very happy to manage to get a layout done during naptime yesterday. This was not at all what I had planned to work on, but I decided I wanted to try a challenge that Debbi T does on 2Peas using the 101 Things You Can Do with Your Scrapbook Supplies book by Jennifer McGuire. I have and love the book and the challenge this week was to emboss some paper and ink it and then use it on your layout. This was a bit of a stretch for me, but tried it and had fun with it and liked the result!

Not too much going on here today! Have a ton of laundry calling me and plan on spending the night taking it easy with the boys and George since I'm not going to see much of them over the next few evenings. I work the next 3 evenings (because we're moving locations at work) and then I'll be working Sunday and Monday when the store is actually closed for moving. It's going to be crazy!

Mum is also coming over for a little visit today on her way to the island. She's picking up Uncle Scott at the airport and then they're going over together for a visit since my grandma is going into the hospital. Please send wonderful, healthy vibes her way!

Well, better run for now since I need to go jump in the shower before everyone is up and needing breakfast! Have a fabulous day and I'll hopefully be able to scrap during naptime again today!

Cheers,
