Ok, ok, I'll post

Here's a layout I got done last week. Ok, so the only layout. I'm doing just a small album (8 x 8) for one of my daycare kids who is no longer coming. Kind of a little remembrance. Anyway, I used some retired pp, the butterfly is from the big shot die covered with sticky sheet and glittered. 'friends' is a rubon and I used the Baroque Motifs flourish.

Now for how I made my own frothy cappacino.
I brew 1 cup of strong French Vanilla coffee. While that's going I pour 1 cup of cold milk into a 2cup jar and put on the lid. Then shake, shake, shake. And yes, parts of your body that you've been neglecting will shake too!! Then nuke the milk until hot. Which in my pathetic microwave is over a minute! Now in my coffee cup (which is pretty big) I pour 1 tbsp french vanilla creamer, the coffee and the milk, top with the froth and a sprinkle of coffee topper (sugar & cinnamon). YUM!!!

No mojo

So I actually was taking time to scrap today but there was not a whole lot of mojo. I think it's because I didn't do the dishes. It bothers me if there is work to be done and I'm scrappin' instead. NEED to get over that. lol
My first layout totally shows the lack of mojo, but it's done and added to the pile. I also struggle with so many photos on one page. But I didn't know which to leave out, so they all went on. I used some retired pp, need to use it up!
The second layout turned out much better, I think anyway. I've been hoarding these felt snowflakes for forever and now in July I decide to use them. Crazy!! I ran my Baja Breeze ink pad over the white cardstock for a background. Stamped the 'waiting' in Riding Hood Red, wrote the 'for snow' in marker. The ribbon is the double stitched ribbon, I just pulled the thread on the edges to ruffle it up like that.
Also wanted to share that I figured out how to make my own cappacino's at home with froth. mmmm so good.

What a great time, thanks ladies!

I got one more layout done last week. Going slow as a turtle with scrapping lately.
I used the Spring Fling pp from the last mini catalog (retired), Boho hardware (retired), buttons (retired), Baja Breeze cs (retired). Hmmm, thinking I'll have to place an order this week for some NEW stuff!!
