Hey There!

I had hoped to participate in the crop at Backporch Memories last week, but apparently it was not meant to be. Between working extra hours, household chores and going out with some friends I just couldn't fit it in. The challenges were great though and I'm still planning on using some of them to jumpstart my creativity on future pages. I did finish one . . . not in time to upload it . . . but it did get done. (I really hate the way working full-time interferes with my life.) :)

This page was done for the "It's Hip to Be Square" challenge. We had to use at least four squares of scrap paper from different lines. It as fun - just wish I'd had time to submit it. Oh well - maybe next time.

We had some really bad torandoes come through this week and a lot of people lost everything - 10 people died. Please remember them, as well as the Joplin tornado victims in your prayers. Stay safe everyone!

Well it seems that I'm failing miserably at at least some of my New Year's resolutions! Believe it or not, I'm doing remarkably well at others though. Since I started working full time in December I've been buried in work and I end up working late or working through lunch most days. I've been coming home too tired to want to scrap and playing on the computer is about the last thing I want to do after staring at a computer screen all day. Obviously I'm way behind at posting here, but I'm going to make a renewed attempt to get after it.

Here are a couple layouts I did at a weekend retreat I went to recently. I didn't get a lot done, but it did make me want to "play" with my papers and glue a lot more. I forgot how relaxing it can be. Hopefully I'll be getting back to it in the near future.
