This and that

So it' s my last night off for a while (SIGH). I start my new schedule of (3) eight hour nights and one (12) hour night per week. I like working the shorter shifts. It lets me have a more normal daily routine. But it's one more day to work per week. I suppose there's no perfect solution, short of winning the lottery, LOL.
Mike is enjoying his new job. I need to get a picture of him in his tie, before the novelty wears off.
We're definitely 2 ships passing each other these days. Still working out the kinks. The who needs to be where and when. We're a good team together, though, so we'll work it out.
One of my resolutions was to scrap more. I've managed to get some done this week. One layout was for a sketch challenge over at Scrapbook.com. I'd just received my January Studio Calico kit.
That's the one indulgence I still have in our time of tightened budgets. So this month's kit has gorgeous patterned papers in a color palette I love, but seldom use - green, yellow and brown.






The flowers are made from Hambly rubons. I distressed the cut out images and layered them. I LOVE gold as an accent on my pages.


Here is a page I started anout a week ago and set aside. I finished it up the other evening. Remember my post about Jimmy and the Reindeer dust a couple weeks back?







I created my title by stippling foam thickers with silver stickles. I went back a few times to get the amount of sparkle I was after.
Well, it's getting late here and I'll be sorry tomorrow night if I don't get enough rest.
Have a good one!
