Recent Layouts and a Fun New Toy!

So I am posting these layouts and typing this post from my brand new toy, a laptop of my very own! Of course, I will share it with Eddie when the need arises, but for all intents and purposes, it's mine. And I am loving it! It's so nice not to be tied to my scraproom/office when I am using the computer. I can take it out with me to watch TV, I can have it with me when I sew at the dining room table and best of all, I can take it outside while Avery plays.

What a great day!

It is so absolutely gorgeous here in NW Washington today. The sun is shining, not a cloud in the sky, at least not that I can see! I have the window open in my office and it is so nice to be getting some fresh air in here! Love it! I've finished one layout so far, and really hope to get another accomplished before the day is out. But........the best part of the day is that I got happy mail today! My Valentine's gift, Once Upon a Princess, came in the mail! I can't wait to play with it!

Sketchy Thursday 2/11 Challenge

My first time doing a Sketchy Thursday challenge! I really am loving their sketches and have saved a bunch of old ones for future reference. All PPs in this layout are from the Cosmo Cricket Girl Friday collection. I covered the chipboard heart with tissue paper. All the letters are assorted Thickers.

My Mind's Eye Sketch Challenge

Well, this is my first time attempting a MME blog challenge, although I've been meaning to for quite some time! The challenge to use pink OR red, or both. I chose both. The PPs are all MME Just Dreamy 2, as is the frame, title and diecuts. All of the layered flowers have diecuts as their base. I really enjoyed doing this challenge and can't wait to do more!
Well, this is the first time in months that I have actually gotten around to updating my blog. I seem to have a really hard time coming up with things to say! And my scrappy mojo had absented itself from about last May until mid-January, so I didn't have any scrappy things to post, either! My mojo has finally come home, however, and this is what I have done from January until now.
