Our Sweet Miracle

Yet Another

 Checked emails and a friend had used  sketch # 74 from My Scraps and More Sketches for a travel layout. Immediately wanted to do the same.... yep copy cat..... But when I checked deadline to enter challenge was in 12 hours..... nope still have not done what I was suppose to do today.... I am going for the procrastinators award........

Thanks again for visiting and now maybe I can push myself to get something done!
Have a truly wonderful day!

Fun Day

 I am still trying to get myself back in the groove but really feeling frustrated in general lately and I KNOW that getting lost in creating will pull me out of it quickler.  Decided that everything else in life could take a back burner until I could get one layout done. LOL
  This is going to be entered into 2 different challenges. Color Me Scrappy has this color scheme as the challenge #59.

And sketch #265 at Creative Scrappers was the design inspiration

And here is my layout......
Thank you for taking a minute to drop by I am off now to begin all the things that were beckoning me before I took the detour to the craft cave!
