Yesterday's Post...Today!

I did get everything done yesterday except for blogging about it. :) It took two pots of coffee and only 4 hours of sleep last night (I am thinking that the 2 pots of coffee had more to do with that then my creating), but I got it done.


My layout for day 4 of the LOAD (layout a day) challenge over at BPS. This is a layout that I have been planning to do for a while. The journaling says, "The Cough. It's your own special language. Somewhere along the way, you decided that your daddy's cough was his way of talking to you. Now if you are looking for him or trying to get his attention, you cough your own little fake cough." The layout design is based on one of Janelle's sketches.

Supplies used:
*Basic Grey Blush
*Tres Jolie journaling card
*buttons

And while I had all my supplies out, I did this card for my Card a day challenge over at Card Designs studio. Our challenge for yesterday was to do a Thank you card. The only difference in the supply list is that I added some of those yummy PaperTrey Ink stamps.


Yesterday's gratitude: first pot of coffee out of a new bag of coffee. :D


I will try to get back on here later today with today's layout and card, but I am not guaranteeing anything. I HAVE to get my tree down today. Whoever let me start this LOAD challenge before I un-decorated my house should be shot! LOL!!!

Love both of them--of course the cough thing is great.
I LOVE the colors on the card. I really like chocolate brown with just about anything. Maybe that's because the word "chocolate" is in the name. Hmmmm...

Beautiful card -- and that layout is perfect. To me, it just says what scrapping is all about -- recording these precious little funny memories you might otherwise forget at some point. It's wonderful!
