This card came together quickly, and if it hadn't it would not have happened today. It's been awhile since having 4 kids during the day, but it's always nice that a 5 month old baby naps quite a bit. This comes courtesy of Madelynn's first nap today and the kids being entertained by a tootsie pop. haha.
This designer paper is retired and it's making me depressed. I never got a chance to even buy Georgia Peach, either. Man, and it's THE CUTEST. I'm not so wild about Stampin' Up's new designer papers this time go-round. Anyway... the wonderful site for inspiration: http://mojomonday.blogspot.com/
I absolutely ADORE having a layout set before me! When I first started stamping, it was all over the place, just doing whatever I felt would "work." That is how I paint, usually. Somehow it turns out. (I need to take some painting classes where they teach me some underpainting techniques) With my ever evolving stamping style and thoughts on it, the whole having a layout and figuring out the rest (like stamp set, colors, etc) later has been a lot easier. It can be a little daunting when you have collected the amount of stamping supplies and then trying to sift through to make something of it. :-)

I'm back again this week for a color challenge from Kristina Werner. It's so much fun, you should join, if you already haven't. :-)
colors this week are pretty in pink, pumpkin pie, ruby red, and whisper white!
Off to shower, I'm in the process for training for the 10k (this is coming from a person who doesn't really even exercise) :-) Surprisingly enough, today went well!
