Falling behind...

Wow! I have a LOT going on in my life right now and I don't think I realized quite how much until I started falling behind. I have been so good about staying on top of it all, but yesterday the cleaning bug bit. See, all my stress can be directly traced back to cleaning...I should know better!?!

But yesterday started out with grand intentions...I had several projects that needed attention in my craft room and I was really excited until I tried to step foot in my scrap room and realized that I was endangering my limbs by even walking in the door. I have had a lot going on and all the remnants to my various projects appeared to have been thrown in every direction of my craft I decided that I had to do a quick clean-up...which took 12 hours! The results are definitely worth it (esp. since I won't lose any time from injuries resulting in a trip to the emergency room), but I did lose a whole day in my life which is HUGE with my schedule right now.

But today is a new day and I started it off with a bang...and 2 layouts which I HAD to get done for a very important opportunity at my LSS. These are some photos that I took while my parents were here a couple of weeks ago. I love doing layouts with them as the subject and always regret not taking more photos...

This second layout, I designed specifically to use the oval creative prompt that I never had an opportunity to do last week. It was fun to use a shape that I don't normally use and I loved the way that the Stamped in Ink stamp (which is made for a corner) curved so perfectly around the oval!! Love it when stuff like that just works!

I am a couple of days behind on my art journal so definitely be looking for more posts from me this weekend!
