It has been a while since Jeni and I have been able to focus on our {644.5} challenge but yesterday I was inspired...Like a punch in the face, laid out flat on the floor inspired.

My inspiration: Go scrap a JUST SAY NO layout! A lesson I think we as women should do more often. Just say no! I don't know about you, but I feel pressured to be some kind of super mom on  daily basis. I need to accept that fact that I just can't do it ALL and to tell people NO! I don't know why that is so dang hard for me. But it is. Always has been, most likely always will be. But hell, if I am going to survive this crazy thing called life, I am going to have to stop being some kind of insane people pleaser and remember to make sure that I am happy once in a while too!

Here is my {644.5} layout- NO NO NO!

If you are feeling inspired or moved to create along with us. Hey now is the time to vent, let it all out on paper! Heck, isn't that part of the reason why we scrap? I know that it is for me and that I have been diverted in a different direction for a while. It feels good to scrap REAL!

Make sure to head on over to Jeni's blog to check out her gem of a layout! Trust me, you will be glad you did :)
