I spent this morning trying to shake off the bad mood I'd woken up in. Didn't take too long before I was so busy I'd forgotten what I was anoyed about in the first place. Aidan arrived, and by lunch time I had seven kids here (seven!) It was Sarah's birthday and she had a sleep over, then her friends all just seemed to migrate across the road to our house. At least everyone was entertained for a while.

Bit by bit today I put this layout together. Scrapping has to be a good cure for a bad mood. Used up some scraps, and it came out nothing like I'd imagined. If someone makes some nice red/blue papers that you know of, can you let me know. It's probably the most common colour combo in my photos, but I really struggle to find nice papers. Used up some left over BG Skate Shoppe, and typed the green growing up bit on white CS to match. Needed a third pp and didn't have one. Still using up the mm jigsaws which have been in my stash for about a year!

Not much else to comment on today. Escaped for a while tonight and went to pay some more of my layby. Ethan's not really spotty, he had about 3 little pimple spots around his mouth when he first woke, but they had faded by lunch time (all seven kids that were here had already had chickenpox & measils, and their mum's didn't mind them being here.) And I'm looking forward to Saturday night - crop night! YAY!! Jane's comming again, and so is Lisa.

Katie,
I think the "Skate Shop" pp you have used is perfect!!! I agree, I use the red/blue combo quite a bit too. I think I have a few really "old" stuff in my stash, but nothing new...
Good to hear that Ethan is OK.
Scrapping is always a good way to keep you mind occupied, especially when you are not in a good mood. (Next best thing is shopping for supplies!)

Hey Katie. Loving your work at the moment. You are churning out some stunning LOs. Good to hear Ethan is on the improve. So have to get back to scrapping - have missed it over the last couple of weeks!!

KATIE...........haven't popped in here since having some major dental work done on Tuesday.

Glad to see that Ethan is improved and your layouts are gorgeous as usual.

I haven't scrapped a layout since about January.....made cards....planned classes....taken 2 of Donna's Classes....but no layouts! AND I haven't missed it to tell you the truth.
I have completed a Canvas which includes a lovely pic of Sally and Brendan ON THEIR WEDDING DAY.
I really need to start thinking of how I want to scrap their Wedding pics now that I have them developed.
Oh...........I have worked a bit on Wendy's CJ...
