I don't know why but my mojo has picked up the past two nights and I was able to get another layout done in about an hour. For this layout of my niece and her sons I dug into my MME stash and used their dreamy collection. Lisa in Texas made me laugh saying she wished she owned every single paper collection and sometimes I swear that I actually do, lol. But I love my stash, I love being able to find the right colors or patterns to go with my photos no matter how long ago I purchased it. I used a sketch from a new kit club that I found called Artful Delight (unfortunately I am too late to enter it in their challenge). But fortunately I am in time for the 2Broke girls calendar challenge in their forum and I used 3 pattern papers, 1 photo and 4 buttons to celebrate National Pi day.
(sorry for the photo quality, I had to take the picture indoors)
And don't forget Cardmakers that the Sketch~n~Scrap NEW card design team call is still going on. You can get more details here. Woohoo I can't wait to see what I can come up with tonight!

Another month has flown by and I haven't been able to get through all of the sketches and challenges that I have wanted to but I am making a little headway. Last night I sat in the scrap room pretty uninspired until I pulled out these awesome pictures of my niece and the American Crafts Margarita collection. I am going to be so sad when I use all of these papers, the colors are so vibrant and fun, perfect for summer layouts. and since it is snowing outside of my window right now this layout really brightens my mood today. I used a sketch from My Scraps and More's awesome sketch blog. This is my take on sketch #21, I can't believe how fast this layout came together. I am also entering this in one of the 2 Broke Girls forum challenges. Have you been to their site yet? It is a new challenge blog that my bbf Mika hipped me too and I really like their challenges, especially since I can combine them with my sketches, it makes me feel like I have gotten more accomplished. You should come over and join the forum, I am still learning my way around but I like it so far. I hope to finish up a couple of WIPs this week and get serious about some cards. Do you have any crafty plans this week?

I have been working on layouts all week but I don't have anything finished yet to share so just to keep my posting momentum going I am sharing some phone photos. Very picture heavy.

My bestie came up with this new text abbreviation to relieve the stress of trying to figure out why we do the crazy things that we do. L@M means "laughing at myself". This is appropriate today because I started this layout a while ago and did not mark it complete because.......................well I don't know why, lol. I kind of think I wanted a better/different title but to be honest I don't know where or what I would add. So after spending time trying to figure out what was missing, then L@M, I decided to go ahead and post this layout of my grandson when he was just a few days old and mark it complete, lol.
