Good Morning!!

I hope that today brings you lot's of smiles!!

Life has been going full speed this week, so I have had very little time for scrappy endeavors. I am still playing in the contest at Moname Memories, and am pleased to say that I am holding tight to third place for two weeks in a row - woohoo! What has been fun about this challenge for me is that there is a "speed" component to the race in addition to the scrapbooking, and working quickly in the race earns more points, at least for some of the challenges. So if you know me, you know that I am anything but fast - so I have really had to push myself - the layout that I completed for last week's challenge I got done in just a couple hours - no pondering, no setting it aside and coming back to is later...just get it done! AND I even overcame my fear of writing on the page and wrote (with permanent marker even lol) all over my layout, the flowers, the edges, the journaling... So although it is not the most fabulous thing I ever created, I jumped over some hurdles and enjoyed doing it!

We used a sketch for this one, and that of course made it go much faster. This is my daughter at her 3rd birthday party trying out the beautiful purple makeup she was given for her birthday! Journaling reads: Someone thought it would be a good idea to buy you makeup for your 3rd birthday. You sure had a good time, and Purple is definitely your color!
I used My Mind's Eye patterned papers, Bazzill cardstock, Pink Paislee diecut paper, Making Memories glimmer brad, Sharpie marker, AC thickers, misc. lace trim, AC alpha stickers and a cute little butterfly that I have no idea where came from.

My project this week won't be fast - I am caught in a whirlwind this week and don't know when I may have time to sit down and work, so hopefully I can hold on to my spot!

Aside from this page, my only crafty time this week was getting to go make a tile mosaic with friends from work - My friend Dawn got us together and put together the supplies and somehow convinced her husband Bill to help with framing, grouting etc - it was a VERY fun day with creativity flowing and oozing all over the place - thanks Dawn and Bill!

Well, gotta go wake up the kids to get ready for school, work and another insanely busy day! Hugs to you all
