This first layout is a direct Stacey Michaud lift. She's one of the DT members over at the Nook and has a wonderfully linear style. I loved this layout when she posted it in the gallery, and jump started my own creative mojo by lifting it, and adding a little bit of Sherri to it here and there. (Please note that I received her permission to post this layout online in advance, she's a sweetie like that)

|I know doilies are no longer scrappy fashion, but I'm still loving them. This one is actually from a party supply store package.|
Speaking of Scrapping Everyday Miracles have you had a chance to consider creating something for Challenge #12. There's still time, and Monika has a generous RAK up for grabs for one lucky winner. I'm sure enjoying getting to know the ladies over there. Nicole and Wendy have very tender hearts, and have been so wonderful about welcoming me and helping my to find my footing. I'm excited about what the next several months will have in store for us. I'm especially excited about the new 'faces' we've been seeing around the blog. It's wonderful to be meeting people from all over the world and to share our faith, and scrappy journeys together. I feel very blessed to be where I am.
My Moments In Between album, or Project Life as it's more commonly known is causing me grief. I feel sad about it. It is just not coming together the way I'd like. I know it's new so it will take some time. It's not even the capturing the little things that's the problem. I've taken some notes, jotted stuff down on scraps and cards, taken the photos. That's all good. It's the lack of supplies, and the difficulty printing that I'm having. I cannot for the life of me figure out how to print properly on our printer, it's making me crazy. I'll specify a print at 3 inches wide by 4 inches high, and it will come out as 4x4. Because I'm trying to split my 4x6 pocket into two that's causing a problem. Plus I don't have the right page protectors. Remember I said I started this late, well now I'm paying for it. I've got last weeks photos in the page protectors with a bunch of blank space (where the photo is to small for the slot) that needs to be filled. I had to walk away from it tonight. Hoping that tomorrow I'll have some new perspective. I really, really want to run out and buy a new printer, one that's easy enough for a monkey to use, and that can stay in my scrap space so I'm not having to run up and down the stairs all evening (lazy, I know). Sorry for the rant. But if this is going to be a place of honesty you had to know that despite my heartfelt, sincere, and hopeful post from Monday, it's a different day today. Hopefully tomorrow and into the weekend will be better. I'm hoping I can just get over it, get it done and move on. I know that in the big picture, fifty some weeks from now these first few pages won't matter. My Title page was in Top 3 over at 2 peas for a few hours today, and Amy Tangerine, yes you heard me, the lovely inspiration and designer of her own line with American Crafts, even commented on it, saying she loved it - yay me.
Sorry for the rambling. To make up for it how about I share some cards I made a while back. I was thinking they'd make good teacher gifts. I can't decide if they need a sentiment or not. What do you think?
