TGI my Friday is all I can say. The past few weeks have just not been on my side. I was so excited to come home and scrap tonight but apparently my scrapping mojo is lost somewhere! Hopefully it will just be one "eh" layout and it will return! I did this layout using the sketch by Helen Croft which is the challenge this week at Sketches In Thyme. I love the papers which are My Minds Eye that I got from a steal at Crafty Steals a while back and I love the pictures of my Valentines Day traditional breakfast and candy for the kids, but I DON'T so much love how the layout came out once I put it all together. I almost feel like I am trying too hard and nothing is coming together. I have so much on my mom is still in the hospital and not doing much better but seems to be taking all of her frustration out on me, I'm having major work related issues which have been weighing on my mind and will probably come to a head on Monday so I am not looking forward to this weekend ending, my kids are busy with the startup of Fall sports and I just feel overwhelmed, like there is not enough hours in the day to do what I need to get done. I haven't scrapped in what feels like forever....probably close to 2 weeks! Man am I a whiner or what! Phew...I feel better now! I knew I could count on my blog buddies to let me vent! What? You didn't have a choice, you say? Sure you could have stopped reading at the first set of whines but you are still here and I and thankful for that! I need to refocus my brain on things that I AM thankful for and stop the woe is me! OK I think I got it all out of my system! At any rate, here is the first of what will hopefully be several layouts and challenges completed tonight! Miss you all!!

Oh I like this. The paper is fantastic and I love the different photos you used. Really well done. Thank you for playing with Sketches in Thyme this week.


I think your layout is really beautiful. It made me think I should try the challenge! Sorry you are having such a hard time girl!! I hate to hear that. I can see where you wouldn't have a lot of mojo w/ all that going on. Big hugs!!!


I like the layout too. Sorry to hear about your troubles. I haven't scrapped in nearly 3 weeks! I was on vacation, and now am in the vacation recovery mode! Maybe this weekend. I hope to get my layout done for 8-25-10 for Let's Scrap. I have the pictures all printed out.


Hey girl - glad to see you back!!!!!!!!!! Great take on the sketch! Love the paper!! Hope to see more from you to make up for lost time!!!!


Glad you got to play, and I believe the stress comes out or releases when I craft. Glad you could play along this week at Sketches In Thyme


Are you kidding me?!! This is your version of a missing mojo?!! I seriously need to steal some mojo from you then because when mine is missing, I don't even bother posting my LOs because they are so bad!! This LO is fabulous!! And I think it is sweet you do such a nice breakfast and candies for your kids on Valentine's day!! Glad you had a chance to vent! Hopefully things will start to look up! I will say a prayer...
