Soooooo Busy!!

I know almost 2 months ago I mentioned I wanted to post my Inspiration Unlimited recap pronto but life happened. I’ve been super busy with back to work, back to regular duties that I haven’t had time for much outside of that. I had a few continuing education sessions I had to catch up on as well, so that was also cutting into my normal “me” time.  Finally, today for the first time in I don’t know how long, I had some “me” time. I had 3 days off, in a row, spent at home. It was incredible bliss (well, maybe not the dentist part, but definitely including the massage part).

In full disclosure, I fully confess my main reason for blogging right now is because I actually managed to scrapbook 2 layouts today and I wanted to get them posted here.  Have I mentioned yet I really need to be better about scrapbooking more often and then blogging them? Because, I do!  One of the layouts I created used a lot of new product, the other was straight out of the stash! They’re both inspired by sketches on a sketch site called Stuck?! Sketches that is now run by the uber talented, and someone I’m proud to call a friend, Laura Whitaker.

And here’s my take on the sketch with a few detail pics included too!
