Busy Busy Busy

I've been totally MIA lately. Our Dream Street papers for CHA are due asap and I've been stuck in front of my computer trying to eek something out that I'd love to scrap with. Not always the easiest thing since I'm too picky for my own good :P I've got 8 papers done and I'm loving the colors and the feel of the line. I'm headed down the sketchy/graphic/bold road this time around. I thought it would be fun to go back to my graphic roots for my sixth line. I can't believe it's been that many so far. I swear time flies.

Speaking of which, Sarah has a terrible cold and cough. So, needless to say, we've been getting no sleep around here. And as fate would have it, I now have the soar throat and runny nose. Fun times.

Sarah starts her cooking class this week, which I am beyond excited for. She takes the class at this awesome complex where the kids go and learn and the mothers spend time in the gym/spa/cafe. It's all in the same building so you don't even have to leave. Just drop of your child with their teacher, grab your beeper so they can contact you if you're needed, and go do what you like. I'm going to be taking advantage of the gym. Plus, there are tv's set up around the complex so you can watch your child while they learn. It's got to be the best of both worlds. I think I"m more excited about it than she is.

The layout above was created using the New Growth collab kit at Oscraps. I'm usually not a purple fan, but I loved it in this kit.

I'm planning on hitting the Brooklyn Flea next weekend. It's seriously the best flea out there. Such an amazing mix of homemade stuff, vintage finds, clothes (vintage and new) and other unique treasures.

This layout I did using the ASPCA digi kit. The kit is packed with traditional elements/papers mixed with funky doodled designs as well. Plus, it's a collab so there a bunch of designs from some of my favorite artists. This is definitely one kit I'll go back to for the adorable buttons, papers and awesome trims. And here's the BEST part.....proceeds go to the ASPCA! You can't get better than that!

Oh! And the best news of the week........My Chillaxin layout was a User Inspiration in the Garden at 2peas! It's the first time that's happened to me and I couldn't have asked for a more perfect person to lift the layout. I've been a huge fan of Jennifer Johner since she was theLITTLEbug. I even lifted one of her layouts during my first year of scrapping. Want to see it? EEEEEK.....ok, but it's from a lonnnnng time ago ;)
I swear she made paper strips cool ;) I still love to use them!
Here's Jennifer's version of my Chillaxin' Layout (and mine just below it) I just love it..for so many reasons :) :) :)
