Right now

all about me, right now...
My Top 9 in no particular order at this point in time are: sunshine, chocolate,football, dancing, family, sushi, coffee, movies w/D, and singing.  It's a short concise list, but something I think my girls will appreciate in years to come, getting a glimpse of what makes me tick.

The idea for this layout came from Nicole over at The Nook.  She issued a challenge to create a layout inspired by quilts.  You can see her post here.  Now, I must confess, I don't quilt shocker, I know, but the first thing that came to my mind was hexagons created out of random pieces of paper.  After completing the layout, it occurred to me that maybe I got quilts mixed up with afghans.  I went on a hunt in Google to see if I was off my rocker, and discovered these images.

So it looks like maybe I was on the right track after all. This layout took me outside of my box, and I enjoyed it.  That's one of the great things about the Nook kit club.  Some months the product is right up my ally, and the kit practically scraps itself, other months,  as much as I may love all the pretty paper, and cute little embellishments I just can't seem to put a layout together.  That's where the forum and the fabulous DT over at the Nook come in.  Every month there are classes, and/or challenges to spark the creativity, and get the mojo flowing.  Then it's all up to you.  You're free to lift the card and/or layout, or simply use it as an inspiration piece.  Thanks Nic for creative jump start. 

As always I really appreciate that you took the time to visit my corner of the world.  Have a wonderful week friends,

♥ S.
