I hope this week has been a full, enriching, and blessed one for each of you. We hung out at home quiet a bit, which, I have to admit, was a really nice change. I am starting to feel a little anxious as the school/dance class start up is right around the corner, and it feels like there is much to be done before we're all ready. More vacationing, more reading, and relaxing, more friends to connect with, more spelling, math, money, and time to practice, more sleepovers to be had, more movies to watch, and definitely more hanging out on the deck. *sigh* Alas, we are not there yet. Can you tell I have a problem with staying in the moment, and living in the present, as much as I pray about getting better at it, I continue to struggle with it, and find myself consumed with things yet to be done so often.
One of the things I'll be up to this weekend is the Virtual Crop over at My Scrapbook Nook. In between some of the other things going on here, I really hope to participate in several challenges, and plow through some of my unused product from the past few months. It's such a shame to see all that loveliness just sitting there begging to be used.
Last night I finished the early bird challenge that the most hilarious Hilde posted the other day. The challenge was to lift a layout in the gallery. I chose this one by a new member, and fellow Winnipeg (yay) Nicole. It jumped right out at me in the gallery. I loved everything little thing about it :) Here's my lift...
|I even used the same MME Fine & Dandy line as she.|
|still addicted to hand stitching as you can see.|
|I covered the Maya Road chipboard bits with MME paper, and used OA Mini Market alphas on top.|
I also completed my 3rd layout for the Studio Calico LOAW. Here's the sketch it was based on...
and here's my take...
|I flipped it to better suit the orientation of my photos.|
I'm off to check out the newest challenges over at the VC, hope you'll find some time to pop over and check it out, I promise it'll be worth your while.
Happy Friday friends. Thanks, as always for stopping by.
