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!

  1. Wow you had and amazing scrappy day, your layouts are so pretty, gorgeous embellishing and details! Thank you for playing along with Stuck?! Sketches, and I too am blessed to have you in my world sweet lady!

  2. Great designs. Your holiday one is so beautiful and you have made that photo just jump off the page! Your little swirl and those bingo cards really work! On your second design, I loved seeing the rays of sunshine in behind and they created a nice flow for your stacked photos. I hope you will have the chance to keep creating: you do it so well! Thanks for playing along with us at Stuck.
