Why do day's off go by so fast?

Well Thursday was my day off and I wanted to get 6-10 scrapbook pages finished, well that didn't happen.  I thought it would be possible because I have many of them kitted up and they just need to be put together, but  LIFE got in the way.  I decided that I couldn't put off going to the Laundromat any longer.  I don't have a washer and most mornings I drop off a load of wash at my parents when I drop my kids at school and mom who is an angel...washes, dries and folds it and delivers it back to my house in the evening when she drops my kids at home. (***yes, I am spoiled!**).  The wash pile was getting pretty large so Cassidy and I took it to the Laundromat....which took a big chunk of time because one load didn't wash properly. The good news is that I got one layout done.
This was another layout for a challenge at Two peas in a bucket. The challenge was to scrap lift a Garden Girl.  Well the week before I had seen this layout from Jill Sprott and I knew that I wanted to use these 5 little photos I had of Jacobs favorite things.  So I broke open my new Basic Grey: Fact or Fiction papers that I  got from Joann's.  In  retrospect, I wish  i had matted the photos on something dark....but I love the brown and green color scheme.
After reading the message boards at Two peas, I also decided to start my mass production of Christmas cards.  So I worked on my design and looked in my stash and came up with this for our Petersen Christmas card 2012.
After such a tough year with the passing of the kids dad, I decided that we needed to send out something fun and whimsical for the holidays. I am quite happy with the finished card.
Happy Friday and have fun making YOUR OWN ART!
