Birthday Party Day #20

I'm sitting here waiting to reclaim my kitchen. . .again.  If this is life with teenage eaters, I'm not looking forward to Summer break.  Seriously.  I cleaned the kitchen four times now.

The back door is open, there's a slightly chilly breeze blowing in, the sky is brilliant blue (the grass is dog-dead brown, but we won't go there), and I'm trying not to think about the typos in the Birthday Sale email I sent out at 2:00 am this morning.  Who knew proofing abilities declined with the lateness of the day? 

Now, it's time to get the rest of my morning going: laundry is waiting, dishes (sigh) are waiting, a giant load of giveaway stuff is waiting, a bathroom is screaming "clean me" and the upstairs carpets need vacuuming.  But I must give you all your work for the day, as mine is already clearly defined.

After presents are opened it's hard to wait to play with all the yummies.  Today, it's about playing - no waiting necessary.  Create a whimsical layout - use paint, mists (I know where you can find some on sale ;D), buttons, cheery ribbons, whatever it is that whimsy means to you.  And to make sure there's no stress involved - playing is not stressful - don't spend more than 60 minutes on your layout.  Take your first choices and move on.  LOL, no stress there, right?

Okay, all appears quiet in the kitchen, so it's time to go in.

Don't forget the Birthday Bash of a Sale started today - you'll find Scrapper's Boxes at 50% off, Load Up Embellishment Boxes for just $5, Embellies 50% off , Papers and Kits 30% and Final Calls - super fun stuff that's up to 75% off!  Go and treat yourself and wait for the happy mail!

Have a happy Tuesday!

I don't think you can go wrong with 'Whimsical' with these cute My Mind's Eye 'Alphabet Soup' papers that were in the Feb. '11 Smaller Than Kit. I also used some pop pop trim, a chipboard button, and canvas stars to go along with the whimsical photos of the towel animals. Thanks for this FUN challenge, Lori!
