Were you on pins and needles all weekend, wondering did she scrapbook or did she complete the November kits? Geez, I hope not. For the record I did neither - I worked on the kits but they are not complete. I had the desire to scrapbook but not the energy. That was Saturday.
Sunday was the crazy day. Got up, fixed breakfast. I knew we would be close on time coming home from DH's office picnic, so enlisted the kids to do some vacuuming, clutter clearing and bathroom washing. This turned out to be a good thing as we arrived home 10 minutes, seriously, before the party was to start. So I set one kid on the wood floors that I forgot to get done, one doing some last minute clearing and one to do Toddler-Wrangling. I called in the pizza, while DH took off to pick-up the cake and ice cream. It all turned out. Pizza was hot, ice cream was cold, cake was yummy and fun was had. By the time everyone left and the youngest of the birthday boys was finally in bed (he had only gotten a 30 minute nap) it was about 9:00 PM and I was done too.
So Monday dawned bright and early. Chores are done. My work-work is getting started and depending on how the day goes there may be time for play. With a late volleyball practice; it STARTS at 8:00 PM, I may need to play to stay awake so that I can go get the volleyball-er.
Will you need a challenge to play with? Of course - it is Monday after all. Still in the challenge-block-mode, I rely once again on Elizabeth Kartchner's "52 More Scrapbooking Challenges." Today, find inspiration in a print design. You can find a print design in anything from book sleeves to product logos to postage stamps. Use it as you see it, or alter it slightly to fit your layout needs. With this challenge please include your inspiration as well as your layout when you link it up. Layouts are due on Sunday evening.
Finally, last week's winner and a little change in the selection process. I will be drawing a name (still using Random.org) from those who complete any layout from the weekly challenges. Do more challenges, get your name in the drawing more than once. I know time can be at a premium, so whether you're getting three layouts done a week, or one (which is still four layouts for the month and nothing to shake a stick at) you'll be eligible for the weekly drawing. With the new rules laid out, the winner from last week: Kai!! Kailyn, you'll get your goodie in your next kit. If you haven't had a chance to check out last week's layouts, click on a thumbnail and take a look - they were all great.
Off to keep plugging away at work-work. Have a great Monday, ya'll.
