So all of you Survivor fans out there will appreciate the phrase "Expect the Unexpected." Life leads you to places, has you face situations that you don't always see coming. That can take the form of relationships ending, changing jobs or losing someone to an illness. When I got Unexpected" as the May 1st prompt over at Category Stories, I knew immediately I wanted to pay tribute to that phrase and use it on a layout! The design is a departure, but I just wanted to play, with no design rules or the need to have everything just so. Glad I documented my take on it. Come on over and play--the May sponsor is Hambly! Can't get better than that!
Speaking of unexpected, I found out today that I won a huge prize over at Studio Calico. I am a lucky winner of a 6 month sub to the kit club! Now, many of my online scrappy friends are members there or on the team, and I have always admired their work with the kits. But I hadn't bit the bullet yet. Leah Killian brought me over and had me join in on the contest. Never in a million years did I think we would win! Big time celebration here!
I have been playing with the papers from the Marks Paper Company and oh.my.goodness, they are gorgeous. Sometimes things just fit and my style and these papers go together perfectly. I encourage you to grab some!
Anywho, off to bed now. I don't so much need rest to deal with all the unexpected things tomorrow might bring. I need it to do with all the things I know will happen-kids will be up by 6:00, will go to work all day, will fold laundry when I get home.
