Catch-up and a new layout...


Supplies: Scalloped paper is Bazzill. Patterned paper is Daisy D's and MME. Journaling sticker is Daisy D's. Other stickers are 7Gypsies. Lettering is Pink Paislee. Misc ribbon. Pen is an American Crafts Slick Writer.

I got out one of my old Scrapperie kits (October 2007's Indian Summer) this afternoon and played a little. This picture was sitting on top of the stack and I thought I knew what this layout was going to be about, but it took on a life of it's own! I got inspired by some of the stickers/labels in the kit and it went in another direction, but one I was enjoying! I had actually planned on this being a layout for a stash challenge at YMBD, but I added the Pink Paislee (new) lettering right at the end! Oh well! Just have to do another stash layout!

It was a crazy busy weekend this past weekend! I worked Thursday night, Friday night until midnight and then all day Saturday and Sunday! The store had their annual weekend crop this weekend, so it was fun, but busy!

George had yesterday off, so it was a chance for us to see a bit of each other. We did have to take the car in for brakes though and I was on preschool duty in the afternoon. I had planned on going to bed early, but got my second wind and ended up watching The Bachelor! Yes, I got sucked in again! Who do you think he'll pick??

For those of you that have been keeping my grandma in your thoughts, thank you! She was finally moved to a rehabilitation center and will be getting speech therapy as well as physical rehabilitation there. It's still just a day at a time and we're hoping that she make some real improvements!

Well, I'm off to Tracy's here shortly so I can run our taxes through her program and just get them done. I've never done them this late before!! Oh well, they'll get done!

Have a great evening!
Cheers,

What a gorgeous layout! I love the use of white space :) I watched the Bachelor too...I think he's most likely to pick Shayne, but I don't think it'll last - it's fun to watch, though!

Great news about your Grandma :)
