I hope you all had a wonderful Thanksgiving - ate the good stuff, enjoyed family, weren't disappointed by the football games and if you were a Black Friday shopper, weren't trampled by other enthusiastic shoppers.
Here we enjoyed dinner with my side of the family this year - eating all the traditional foods I remember growing up - and really, isn't that half the holiday? The rest of our Thanksgiving weekend was spent doing nothing. We sat around, which for us is a rarity. We watched some TV. We got out of the house once or twice. But we were pretty much your couch-potato family. It was AWESOME!
I was also bound and determined to play. I was telling one of the Sous Chefs that if I had to drive to the park and scrapbook in the back of my car, that's what I'd do. Luckily, it didn't come to that and I was able to create the layouts below.
Now, hold on to your socks - for some of you it will require strapping yourselves to your chairs, or if it's too late, picking yourselves up off the floor once you come to, because. . .yes. . .your eyes are not deceiving you. . .I made cards! Not one, but two, and note: They are cards using scraps and they are cards using stamps!! I know! Stamps. Cards. Scraps. Me. Those words don't typically work together in a sentence.
The unfortunate side effect of such bliss, such unequalled opportunity to do what I wanted means that I am hard pressed today to want to do anything else. Hence the fact that as I type up this post, my 2 y.o. is doing the vacuuming. His choice, but still. . .there's laundry waiting to be sorted, bathrooms starting to yell my name, and the mess from this weekend's creativity that needs to be cleaned up and put away.
I know I have a winner to pick from two weeks ago, since I took off last week, and I'll probably get to that later today or tomorrow. But so you have something to do, because I trust you've already been to the Apron Strings sale (save at least 30% on your total order - code THANKS10), today's challenge will be short and sweet and inspired by my own craftiness over the weekend (shhh, and a little bit today). . . Create a layout and then a card or two using up the scraps.
I'm off to try to do something - anything that is on my "should" list. I mean schools back in, sports are on tap and life continues it's pace with the addition of holiday chaos.
Have a great Monday back.
