Let's start the week off right with some inspiration. We'll start with February's Guest Designer Deanna Deaton's layout de Jour - isn't it the cutest thing? Hopefully it didn't escape your notice that she made three pages with this one Echo Park pack from the Smaller than a Breadbox kit! Way to go - and isn't her Granddaughter the cutest? Her page makes me think of cake. . .frilly lace, like icing, the delish colors make me think of a layered cake. Seriously, I think I need to make a cake. Go check out more of Deanna's fantastic work at her blog HERE.
So let's see. . .today's challenge is to create a layout using those traditional Valentine's colors; red, pink, white OR create a layout about something you love. Upload it by Sunday evening.
Now, it's my turn. My boys had a great weekend in basketball - the 12 y.o. and his team are heading off to play for third place next weekend with their win this weekend against a team who hadn't been defeated in three years! My 10 y.o. and his team are heading into the semi-finals for the championships with a one-point win this weekend. Really, the coaches should tell them not to do that to their mothers. Way to go my boys!!
On Friday, I made the last minute decision to head out to Archivers to crop. For the sisters who are reading this, it WAS last minute, like at 3:00 I called to save my space for a 5:00 crop. In the couple hours I had, I needed to get dinner ready and then figure out what to take with me. I'd used up my stash of items during the last crop I went to. Basically, I was snatching and grabbing having no idea what I was taking. I was just trying to match up photos to kits to LOAD challenges. In the end I had a mismash of stuff, my iPod and my shoulder tote bag. I grabbed dinner on the way to have no interruption in my time. I popped my earbuds in and started working. In the end I finished nine pages which equalled five layouts and caught up all but one of my LOAD challenges. Of course I didn't get any done over weekend, so I'm behind again, but still. . . And if you'll note, there is one layout using this month's Fancy Pants (holy cow) and one using last month's American Crafts (dang).
