It's still may be a bit early to tell but you just might be stuck with me.  A few minutes ago I took a bunch of photos of recent layouts and I am enjoying your sweet comments on my blog so much that I just might stick around!  It feels different this time around.  I'm not doing this to impress anybody or get noticed or to promote any kind of agenda.  This is me, take it or leave it, and I am enjoying blogging.  This is probably the way it should be.

I recently enrolled in a self-paced class over at Big Picture Scrapbooking, Cathy Zielske's Design Your Life.  I am interested in the "whys" and "hows" of design and am so looking forward to these projects.  My first layout for the class uses product from many different manufacturers.  I've got some more Scenic Route (see, I really am using it), Pink Paislee, Making Memories, Tim Holtz, American Crafts, Sassafrass, and a few others that I can't remember.  I am enjoying shopping my stash.

I'm not only about using stuff that I have, I just need to stop "saving" some of the "good" stuff that I've kept for just the right project (and instead it just waits unused).  I recently ordered Cosmo Cricket's 1934 and a few sheets of Basic Grey Wander for working with our Disney and California photos from last year.  I will be needing to keep up my supply of Kraft cardstock (really loving the kraft) and adhesive and all that stuff.  Oh, and I think I might have a new problem with border punches.

It's the weekend!  My husband has today off and we don't have heavy plans for the weekend.  The sun is shining and the temperature is supposed to hover around the freezing mark for the next several days.  I had a quick appointment this morning and came home and told Gary that I feel like going away.  Well, with the money we've spent on renovating two bathrooms in the last 11 months, unless I can ride that fancy toilet somewhere, we're staying put.  I have some editing to do for the retreat I'm speaking at and piles of laundry calling my name.  Other than that, I'll be spending time at home crafting and enjoying a laid-back few days.  Anyone else have big plans for the weekend, crafting or otherwise?

Have a fabulous Friday!

Love your layout! Nice mix of papers! I think a weekend spent crafting IS a vacation! I plan to do the same. Enjoy!

This layout is so cute! I am totally guilty of wanting to save my papers for the perfect moment and letting them sit there too long and they never get used.

Great layout, it would look awesome in a shadow box or frame! We hit 36 degrees here today and it felt tropical! Haha!

Ohh I would love to see you riding that toilet somewhere, teehee.
Nice layout.
Getting nice comments just make the day that much better doesn't it :)
