In Between Doing Other People's Tax Prep....

I scrapped a few layouts. I like numbers, but I have to figure out a more effective way to do other people's tax prep. I am lucky to have sidework, but the whole time I am doing it I keep saying I could be scrapping...I could be with friends...I could be scrubbing my toilet (and actually finding it more fun than crunching numbers). Anyway...enough ranting. This is what I came up with this past weekend:


Above and below you will find the layouts I did for the Studio Calico DT Inspired Challenges. Above is a lift of Tina's Fall Girl. I love Tina's style. I call it eceletic with edge and style. This was a blast to work on. I could scraplift all her layouts for the rest of my life and be happy as a lark. For sure. Below is my lift of Stephanie's Time Is Tricky layout. I always ooooh and aaaah over Steph's work, but my simpleness usually prevents me from going the extra steps needed to make one of her masterpieces. The challenge is what I needed. Bonus points...I always love when I can use up whole packages of stuff. Imagine my joy when I used up almost two packages of rub ons. Giddiness of joy. I still haven't recovered.



That's it for creativity. However, not that you really want to know this, but I like to share. This past weekend I picked up a quirk. Remember I was glued to my laptop messing with numbers. Well, in the background a show was on television. Something about diagnosing medical mysteries. I am quite certain I have every ailment listed. I will not be watching that channel again...ever. From now on I am back to watching my ghost shows. I never worry about having ghosts - just rare ailments that only one doctor in the world can diagnose. I am shuddering just thinking about it. Aren't you? ;o)
