Egg-cited about this Layout

I am pretty excited about this layout. I am actually really happy with the way it turned out. (David not so much. lol) It was a little more work than normal, but I think it was worth it.

(full credits here)

For me, it's pretty rare that the image I have in my head actually works once I get started on the project. This time it did. I am very happy about that.

I've also not been very motivated to scrap lately. It was nice to finally get a layout done. I am working on another right now. Hopefully this is a new trend and not just a shot in the dark. :O)

Regretting Taking Part in So You Think You Can Scrap

When I took part in ADSR 4 (Amazing Digi Scrap Race), I loved it. I loved working with my partner Ginger and it was a wonderful experience for me. So, I decided to take part in So You Think You Can Scrap contest. It's a solo endeavor, but I still thought I would enjoy it. I knew I would win, but I thought it was another chance to stretch my creativity. But now, I am obsessed with how many fewer visits my layout gets than another layout posted about the same time. So the wrong way to look at it, but I can't seem to help myself. And now, I think it is affecting my desire to scrap anything, cause I am behind on my CT projects and before this, I was actually ahead of the game. In the future, I will still compete in future ADSR's, cause it was such a great experience, but think I will avoid more competitive competitions like the one I am in now. They are just not good for me.

Productive Evening

My day seemed like a Monday rather than a Tuesday, but I have had a good evening. After work, I headed to the gym. I was short on time, cause I had to get home to do my taxes, but I still did 30 minutes of cardio. So far, I am really enjoying going to the gym. Who'd have thought. Won't be going tomorrow night, because I have to be at the church @ 7:00 p.m. But I'll be back on Thursday.

After returning from the gym, I did my taxes. Yes, I know I should procrastinate less. lol The good news is that I am getting a refund. Can't complain about that. But I sure don't think I got any credit from the bill Obama signed back in February. Oh well!

I need to work on my layout for So You Think You Can Scrap. But I think I'll do that in the morning and go spend some time with my sweetie!

Joined the Gym

Okay, no one needs to die of shock over this one. The gym near where David and I work had a special for $10 a month each. We decided to go for it. Tonight was our first visit and I really glad we went. Hope to do more cardio tomorrow. Regardless, can't wait to go back.

Celebrating Easter

This is going to be a short post! I just want to share with you a layout I created to celebrate Easter

(Full credits can be seen here.)

I am so grateful that Christ willingly came to this Earth, because of his love for each of us, to pay the price so that I, and everyone, could have the opportunity to return to live with him. What an amazing gift given to all of mankind. We have all been truly blessed.

May everyone have a great day. He is risen!!

I forgot that I do have something tp share

I forgot, I do have something to share with y'all. I was chosen to be a member of the digi creative team for If you're interested, you can see the announcement here. I am pretty excited about this. Anyway, you can see a copy of my Faith Sister's profile here. This weekend, I hope to be creating my first layouts for Faith Sisters. I'll come back and share them when they are completed.

My Life too Boring

I think my life is too boring for a blog! I'm sitting here trying to decide what to blog and I am coming up with squat. Maybe I should make my life more interesting.

I'm still in the So You Think You Can Scrap contest. But I can't show you my layouts, cause it's supposed to be anonymous and there could another scrapper who reads my blog. Otherwise, I'd love to show you what I've done so far.

I have decided that Charlie from Twilight doesn't get enough credit. He is one of the better characters in the movie. I also think Jacob should keep his hair down. The long hair really suits him.

Well, I think I've bored y'all enough for the day. I'll be back later with more.
