Scrapbook Remix #8...

Well, it's been such a busy day!!! Got up at 5:15 to get the kids off to school, then read Prompt 8 from Shimelle's Scrapbook Remix class, watched one of my favorite movies "Easy Virtue", then went to Lowe's with mom to get a washer, oven, & microwave as they have all gone kaput and we've just put it off as long as possible (well the washer wasn't kaput, but it's a front-loader and we have hated it since practically the day it was delivered!).  Finally got home and it was time for GiGi to come home, had to clean out the old oven, the garage, & the laundry room as they deliver the appliances tomorrow.  My mom left at 2:00 to take my daughter to ER (she's been having severe pains in her side for a month and finally talked her into going to ER!) and it's now 9:00 and she hasn't returned.  I had to leave my dad alone to take GiGi to cheer practice so hopefully she'll get a ride home.  Then at 8:15 someone from church came and got our old washer (they really needed one) and that took forever as it was heavy.  I started scrapping at about 2:30 and between my dad, GiGi, the 5 dogs I finally finished at 8:00.  Just one layout.  And I messed it up.  It went straight into the album and, of course, there's the chance that within a week it will be taken apart and redone.  Here it is:

Patterned Paper:  American Crafts, Pink Paislee; Stamps:  7 Gypsies, American Crafts; Stickers:  American Crafts; Punches:  Creative Memories, EK Success, Fiskars, Martha Stewart; Bling: Hampton Arts; Other: Hipstamatic

Really the only thing I hate are the stamps... I became totally distracted in the middle of stamping... both times!!!  So, the bottom right is really the only stamping that came out okay - that was the point when I figured out my mistake... I had forgotten that I had already stamped the cameras and then came back and stamped the 'Proof'.  It was stupid.  But with the MS, distractions are just not a good thing.  I forget what I was doing before I stopped, and then just carry on not noticing what I have done - concentrating on what to do next.  Does that make any sense at all?

Okay, that's all.  I'm tired and going to bed.  Tomorrow starts at 5:30am and it's 11:00 now.  Just spoke with my mom and they are on their way home, my dad's watching football, GiGi's home from cheer, so I'm going to lay down.... I know that when mom walks in the front door, I will totally pass out. 

Sweet Dreams to you all... that's where our creativity starts don't you think.


P.S. Check out Cynthia's awesome tag on The Wandering Buckeye - she inspires me all the time!

  1. Ohhh, you gave me a SHOUT OUT??? You're awesome!! =D

    Maybe you should just keep this page the way it is and add journaling explaining what happened when you created it. Or do a two-page spread with the explanation on the other side. I think that might be cool--it would explain what you are going through at this moment.

    I do hope your daughter is OK. :-)

    1. a) Of course I gave you a shout out... you rock!
      b) That's a great idea - the two-page layout. Hmmm... I'm going to have to think about how to get that done, but you're right about journaling why it turned out that way and all the things going on. YOU ARE A GENIUS (of course!!)!
      c) Thank you for thinking of my daughter... she's going to see a specialist either tomorrow or next day (they've changed her appointment 3 times and she has 4 appointments in next 2 days so not sure who is when and where!).
      d) Are you going to see Cloud Atlas (don't say I didn't warn ya!)?
