Yesterday (Sunday) I woke up with THE WORST pain in my neck/back. It feels like a pinched nerve under my left shoulderblade, but the pain stretches across my upper back and up my neck. So basically, I feel awesome. The pain hasn't gone down much today, either. I can barely look up and can't look down, left or right. Why am I telling you this? Because miraculously I was able to complete a layout earlier this afternoon! Since I can't look down, I got down on my knees. Luckily, this week's sketch from Scrapbooksteals was easy and I had the layout done in my head, so I was able to knock it out in less than an hour!
This week's sketch was created by Lisa Mack. Here's the sketch:
And here is my interpretation of it:
Didn't it turn out cute? I used paper from Basic Grey's Bittersweet collection, which I L.O.V.E! I had fun making a layout for the pictures I chose. My friend got married in May and my oldest was infatuated with her the whole night! Maddie thought she looked like a fairy princess and thought everything she did was magical. Luckily, I have an awesome friend and she humored Maddie the entire night.
You can't really see them, but I put random pink "shiney stones" (as Maddie would call them) on the bottom right of the layout (among the brads). It turned out pretty cute!
Last week I completed a layout from when my husband and I took Maddie to see Disney on Ice. Maddie LOVES Tinkerbell, whom this show featured, so we knew she'd love it. As a bonus, she got to see Mickey, Minnie, Donald, Goofy, Ariel (the little mermaid), the Lion King, and cars from Cars, too! We had a great time and Maddie was passed out in the car before we even got out of the parking garage! Here's the layout:
This layout is a little plain, but I love the glittery title I found at my local scrapbooking store. I think the layout turned out cute...and Maddie think's it's pretty awesome as well. :)
