But I guess a good thing is that the latest Design Experiment is up today and it was my turn to come up with the prompt. Wanna hear it? It's a good one! Here it goes:
Can you think back to five years ago? What was your life like then? Who were you as a person? Do you think that person from five years ago would recognize who you are now? That's what this week's challenge is all about!Sometimes it's hard to live in the now. To be aware and thankful of all the wonderful things around us right now. The days fly by so fast and memories seem to fade just as quickly.
So our challenge is to write a letter to your future self to be opened in 5 years.
This letter could be a reminder of all the wonderful things that you have in the here and now, a list of things you would like to have, or where you think you will be in 5 years from now. Just make it real, make it heartfelt, just make it you.
Our Guest Designer this week is Jenn Olson and her layout is truly stunning! I have been a huge fan of her work for a LONG time now.
Here is my layout, I used all Webster's Pages products minus the green gaffer tape ribbon BUT if you look hard enough the green lace by the butterflies is the NEW Webster's Trim!
I hope that you all come check out the blog and are inspired to play along with us!
In some other scrappy news, Jessica Sprague is starting up a new FREE class on her website. I love her work, her designs, they way she tells her story and this class is called Stories In Hand. Check out her blog for the details, registration starts TODAY!

#1. I think I hate peanut butter. My family eats it on EVERYTHING. Every morning Zoe wants either pancakes or french toast with peanut butter and syrup. I have made this so often, that every time I open the jar of peanut butter, I gag.
#2. I long to write the great American romance novel! I love reading them and have wanted to take a shot at writing one for years now. But I feel like any writing skills I may have possessed at one time are LONG gone now. One can dream though, right?
#3. I have turned into a hermit. At one point in my life, I had tons of friends. Had something to do all the time. Now I am lucky if I see one other adult human being more than one time a week. It is sad really.
#4. I never had Sr. pictures taken. I am not the most photogenic person and I was afraid that they would turn out horrid and ugly, so I never got them. I am now wishing that I would have.
#5. I have never seen a James Bond movie ever. And I really don't feel that I am missing out on anything. Oh and I have never seen any of the Rocky movies. John tells me that the first one is really good, I refuse to watch it.
#6. In high school, my friend Jamie and I used to go thru all the drive thru's in our town in reverse. We thought it was totally HILARIOUS too. God what dorks we were LOL.
#7. One of my biggest regrets is never finishing college. I want to go to design school and I can't believe how stinkin much it costs. I think I need to win the lottery to ever be able to go.
Well I hope you all have a better Monday than I am having. I have a pit I call a scraproom I have to clean before I get lost in here. Have a great day!
