2 days in a row...

....I'm on a blogging roll!

Seriously, it seems I've just been too busy to be hanging on the computer and I haven't really had much to share.

I forgot to tell you that I extended my vacation into this week. I took today off and then tomorrow is a holiday. To top it off...the kids are in school and DH is working(shh... don't tell anyone I was that excited okay?)

Well today after putting the kids on the bus, I came in enjoyed some coffee and a little morning news show. Then I headed out for a massage and to do a few errands. Came home was going to do a little housework, but decided to head up to the scraproom. I've had a picture of Fritz playing soccer sitting on my desk since the middle of September that needed to be scrapped. In my mind I had already figured out that I wanted to use some of my Fancy Pants-"Daily Grind" papers. So this is what I came up with:

in addition to the PP from Fancy Pants I also used FP chipboard letters, a felt star and a scalloped tag. The buttons are MM, Maya Road Office sheer, and soccerball is a piece of Q&Co felt border. It was a quick simple layout, but it was fun just to scrap something for me.

Speaking of creating...I think I have pretty much talked myself into doing Ali Edwards' December Daily album. Just need to collect my stuff and put it together. I think I want to start with one of the cool acrylic albums Angela has up at the Scrapbook Cafe. From there I can add in some fun chipboard and stuff, but I'm just not sure which Xmas line to use. Hmmm decisions, decisions.

Well that's all I've got for now.

I love this layout Jen - such perfect paper - and I love how Fritz is giving him the elbow to get out of his way! lol!

Hey - I'm doing the December daily album too - let's motivate each other :)

I think we're the only school around here that HAD school today. Other districts were off Monday and Tuesday. I am glad YOU had some days to recover from your vacation and do some things YOU wanted to do!
