Hump Day


This is me today. I can't put my finger on any particular reason, but I'm just feeling like a crab today. The kids were rambunctious and bickering, which definitely elevated my grump o' meter. I've been getting a taste of what life will be like with a house full of adolescents. C & B seem to challenge everything I say. I know this is normal, but it can be exhausting. Add a spirited four year old into the mix and it's no wonder I'm seeing more grays in my hair lately. Oh well, some days are just that way, I guess.

I started reading Eclipse this week. I needed an Edward & Bella fix, having finished New Moon right after getting home from California. I swear, I get lost in this series. I'm glad this book is long!

So let's see, what kind of scrappy stuff do I have to share tonight?

Hmm, well, here is a mini I made for the MOSD booth at CHA. It is a Build a Book Perfect Shapes album. There are 18 different shaped chipboard pages available, so I was able to combine the shapes of the pages I wanted to use. I also used my February DT kit (kit #1)from Treasured Scrapbooking to make this mini. The kit is full of beautiful Little Yellow Bicycle and Teresa Collins goodies.

I masked the letters and heat embossed silver embossing powder for the title. The covers were colored with alcohol inks that I repetitively swirled.

Speaking of Treasured Scrapbooking, here is my Feb challenge LO, using Kit #2:

My challenge is inspired by traditional Valentine's gifts - use the color brown (for chocolate), bling, flowers (a dozen) and lace (for lingerie, wink - wink!)

Well, I probably should go get some sleep so I'm not crabby girl tommorrow, LOL!

Sorry to hear you had such a rough day Debbie! HUGS!!! Hopefully your book is going to give you the escape you're looking for! Eclipse was good and I'm sure it will entertain you :)

I love your mini album, and wow, that layout is positively stunning! It's definitely my favorite of your work, but then again, I love everything you do!

Take care!
