Happy Monday-Santa's Cookies-Jack


Well is everyone sad like me that the weekend is over?  Friday at the crop I really didn't get anything done.  I basically worked on my upcoming class and spoke with the owner about doing a quick kit and class for National Scrapbook Day in May and we picked the paper and embellies to go with May's class.  I have 2 sketches already made.  I just have to make one more.  I did; however, make 6 cards.  I took all my scraps and made up some cards.  They are for Halloween and Christmas -- trying to get ahead of the game.

Saturday is was supposed to be partly sunny and in the low 70's but it never got out of the 50's and rained the entire day.  We were so busy it didn't matter.  Sunday was BEAUTIFUL! I actually broke out the shorts for the boys.  We took a family walk and went to the park.  Oh I love that!

Cookies for Santa

As I have said I have been trying to finish up Christmas.  Here is a layout using the Echo Park paper.  I have to say I love how this turned out!  Tomorrow I am going to show the same layout with Michael just with different paper and embellies.  It looks so different. 

My tip for the week:  You don't always have to reinvent the wheel each time you create a new  layout.  Scraplift yourself and just use different paper and embellies.  It makes is so easy on yourself.  I am all about making things easy!

I want to thank everyone who wrote such wonderful comments Friday.  You all are the best!
