A layout for the day . . .

It took me a ridiculous amount of time to do this super simple layout. For whatever reason, my mojo has left the building. I HATE THAT! Why can't it be easier to just create when you have time? And I had some time yesterday a.m. Two hours, and this is what I come up with. This layout would take me under a half an hour on a normal scrapping day. AAARRRGGGHHHHH! And today, it looks like no time for scrapping. There's always tomorrow!

I ran into my LSS yesterday and got the new idea books from Elsie and Ali. I get a good discount because I design for them, so it wasn't too bad! I also got a set of the Paper Salon stamps. That's because I stamp all the time! (NOT). WHy do I do this again? Oh yeah, because I'm a major addict.

CHA starts tomorrow so it will be quiet on the MB's for a while. I wish I could have gone this year, especially since the rest of the conferences are so far away, but alas, couldn't do it. Well I could, but "my people" weren't attending. Not my closest scrapping friends. And that's why I woould want to go. I'm not the "here's my card and I'd love to design for you" type of gal. Too much like a businesswoman, and I've known since high school (where I took all business classes) that it wasn't for me. I would have wanted to check out all of the new goodies first hand, and drool! ANd hang with my peeps. That's all. Maybe next summer!

Well off to my mom's this a.m. for some coffee. We are going out shopping for a while to finish up my sister's outfits for her clas reunion. She may be home today, which is AWESOME! I've missed her. A lot.

Have a great Thursday!
