Well the week is marching on! I am looking forward to the weekend. It is going to be a bit busy but nothing crazy.
Normally this is a What am I working on Thursday post but guess what? I am not working on anything right now. I seem to be having problems with this regular post. I have not been very creative during the week. I have been hanging out with the kiddos more and I have been trying to get back into an exercise routine. There are not enough hours in the day to get all the stuff done that I want to do--work--kids--scrap--exercise--read--cook--clean--laundry--time with hubby--and the list goes on and on. Every working mom goes through these battles. If I exercise (which I know I am a rare one) I love to do it--I could work out everyday if I had the time, but then I don't get to scrap or hold Michael, or hang out with Jack and find something interesting about Egypt (yes, my son is into Egypt because of the Lego set Pharaoh's quest). I hate it that I don't have enough time to do everything I want to do. Sorry to complain--just trying to find that balance in my life where I get to do a little of everything. Sometimes I am awesome at it and other times I am just terrible at it! So instead of the What am I Working on I have a new layout for you. I have really been using my own sketches lately and not entering other sketch challenges. Sometimes my creativity is easier when it is my own creation but other times I need a little boost--I am sure you know what I am talking about!
Make a Wish
Well as I said earlier in the week I was able to get some scrapping done this past weekend and I finally finished Michael's birthday. I just love this picture of him. He was so into his cake and candle etc. For the layout I had a simple sketch I made that basically used up a lot of my scraps for the Imaginisce Birthday Bash line. I love it when I can create an entire layout using my scraps. When I say I try to use every piece of the paper I really mean it. I only buy a collection line if I really love it and then I want to get my $$$$ out of it.
