WOYWW #379--Down Time

Hi All,

I hope everyone had a super holiday weekend!  The weather here was tantalizing, too bad it's going to get hotter than hot again this week.  I'm ready for the days to feel like fall, not mid-July!  But hey, at least it's not snowing.  I can guarantee you that in 3 to 4 months you WILL hear me whine about the cold, bitter, snowy days.  Maybe someone can send me some cheese to go with my whine!

Don't forget to take a minute to visit Julia and the rest of the WOYWW group at Julia's Stamping Ground.  They amaze me with their talents!

I spent the better part of Saturday getting the house cleaned and food prepped for a cookout. Then spent the better part of Sunday playing hostess for my family.  I don't know why I feel it's necessary to wait on my children and siblings.  I'm so over those day with the kids.  As for my siblings, I didn't wait on them hand over foot growing up so why should I now!  Now hear this Siblings & Children....from now on you will help yourselves while at my house.  This way I can sit back to poke fun at you while you're trying to find the silverware or TP!

I spent the better part of Monday playing in my craft room.  I don't have much to show for it, my desk is pretty clean....
By the light is my box of found stuff that needs to be put away.  I have a couple Fun Stampers Journey stamps out...I need to make a scrapbook page for a crop I'm co-hosting in 8 weeks.

The blue paper is for my Zoltar photo.  There's a new embellishment from my scraps next to that. My G45 Rare Oddities papers that I ordered last week & am loving every piece!  I'm working on an alphabet book for a granddaughter, this is the B is for Butterfly page.  There's some scraps I piled up to make another embellishment with. Not to be forgotten... in the middle of the table is a bag of Brach's candy corn. Ok...alright...a 1/2 a bag!  Candy corn is one of my favorite fall treats. Love them. Hey Brach's, if you are listening, I do accept free samples..hehehe!

Below is a close up of my page embellishment from scraps as well as the card I was pondering last week.  The papers are from Fun Stampers Journey as is the stamped sentiment.  The button belongs on this card, it just works!

Thanks for stopping by my place this week.  Wishing you a creative week ahead!

Until then,
Wrap your life in Sparkles!
