I'll be back...

(Blogger is driving me crazy with it's making it's own mind up on where my paragraphs should go... sorry.)

As I sit here at my computer, I am wearing my coat and slippers and my hands are icicles. Our heater stopped working last night, ugh! I suppose it wouldn't be so cold if I hadn't had the heater set so low to begin with, but it was nice outside! So, it was only set at 65 degrees to begin with and now it's 59 degrees. And I'm cold.

But the good news is that the repair man should be here any time. They said between 11 and 2 and it's almost one... so any time now would be good. Brrrr.

And my camera stopped working! Now THAT is a nightmare, lol! I took it in to the shop and they are sending it out, but I'll be without my camera for close to two weeks. Can you imagine not having access to your camera for so long? Bad timing too because I really need to be taking photos here pretty soon. Thank goodness for Grandmas and their cameras, lol.

So I have had a bad case of scrappers block all week. I managed to squeak out two layouts, but that is about all that I have, lol. I guess the timing is good there too, because I will not have access to my computer for the next week so maybe when I get back I will be refreshed with tons of ideas. I certainly hope so because I have been lent several graphic design books to read over the next week so I should return with much inspiration.

Here are the two pages that I created.

The first is Rachel in all her cuteness this past Halloween: Indian Princess. Click here for details. This uses some new elements by Corina at FPD, the binder doo hickeys are particularly unique though and I love them.
















And this next page is of Elizabeth and her cousin being silly girls, which is why I called it Girly Play. Check here for details.

This one uses more of those cool frames by Nancy Comelab and some beautiful new papers (celebrating weddings) by Corina.

In fact, if you aren't already aware of it, Corina got married last Saturday. She and her husband (then fiance) won a contest giving them the coolest photographer for their wedding. AMAZING photos. If you haven't seen them yet, you should check out the sampling on the photographer's blog, Jessica Claire. They really are beautiful and she was a beautiful bride.















Here is a sampling of some products I am looking forward to using when I get back...

by Tracey Monette at Scrapbook-Elements













And if you haven't seen this from Sausan Designs... can't wait to add it to my collection!




I'll be back in a week or so!
