Weekend Work...

I feel like I didn't get anything done, but I guess in retrospect, I actually did. Unfortunately, I just didn't make much of a dent in my list of things to get done (which is getting rather LONG!)

I continued working over the weekend on my daily layouts using the Jamie Waters prompts from the March CK and finishing up the Basic Grey Color Me Silly layouts for the LSS.

This first layout is using prompt #3 from the J. Waters article which was to use a pp photo mat on top of a neutral background.

The journaling says:
"At 25 weeks, I am feeling pretty good. I can definitely tell that I am older this time around, but your dad and brother are great about letting me nap whenever and wherever. You are an active little one...much more so than your brother ever was. I can feel you doing somersaults daily.

Your Nana took this photo. She and your Papa were here for Jacob's 12th birthday, but we took advantage of the rare time together and did some serious baby shopping. I hope that you and I are as close as I am to my mom.

We look forward to your arrival- just don't make it too early."
Supplies used:
*Chartreuse Dream Retro Echo Primrose Proper paper
*Chartreuse Dream Retro Echo Bubbles
*Chartreuse Dream Retro Echo Buckles
*Chartreuse Dream Retro Echo Corners
*Maya Road Velvet Rickrack- cream

This second layout is using the Basic Grey Color Me Silly paper for the LSS. This paper simply screams freestyle to me so I tried to create a layout more along those lines and was inspired a bit by CD Mukosky to add a bit of my own doodling. I am not too sure about it...
Supplies used:
*Basic Grey Color Me Silly
*Basic Grey Undressed monograms

And this final layout, I REALLY struggled with... I worked literally the whole day on Saturday on it and it simply is not that complex of a layout. LOL! These papers are just so bright that I have a really hard time making them look good...definitely not my style. Everything on this layout is Basic Grey besides the Bazzill cardstock.

My list of TO DO items is still a mile long so I am back to work in my scraproom. I hope that you are finding time to create this week.

You are looking good...I was trying to guess, we might just be a couple of days apart, cause I am 25.5 weeks too.
Love the inspiration, I bought CK just because you talked about this article but trying to stay away from my scrap table...trying to tell my heart that study is more important than art at this point.
Thanks for sharing your creations...
