The Way It Is

Looking around my scraproom, I see the sign of times to come! I have three unfinished layouts sitting in front of me. Each one just needs a little something. All ideas that are in my brain. I just can't get to it now that work is back in my life. And I have to accept that it is okay! Life is about priorities now. School, family, kids, work, scrap. I will still do plenty of it. But I will also have nights where I can't fit it in.

"I'll be okay with it, really." (What, I am not trying to convince myself of anything!)

Here is a recent layout I finished. You know before life went and got all real again! This one came together quickly! I love the Do Not Disturb sign from OA and knew immediately that I had to use it on a page about my dear Ella.

See, she talks constantly, loudly, endlessly. Sometimes, only sometimes, I wish there was an off button or I wish I had an IPOD!

Supplies: All from the August The Nook kit--Paper and all goodies from October Afternoon, Alphabet: American Crafts Nutmeg

Journaling: 99% of the time, we love listening to your cute, little voice. BUT, sometimes the constant singing, asking and chanting add up! How about playing the quiet game for a second.

Hope she doesn't get mad at me someday. But I had to make it! LOL!

Make sure you head over to the September issue of Magazine. Wow! I was blown away!

And, check out the September kit from My Scrapbook Nook.

Are you just in awe! I will find time, I will find time!


  1. I hear ya about scrapping, when I start next week I'm going to be in the exact same place as you. ): Did you get my email? Let me know if you need me to do anything different. Love the new LO!

  2. I am in awe! Of all of it. LOVE the way you used the OA card. Off to the Nook to check out the kit more closely! :)

  3. Stacey, that layout is super-adorable! :)

  4. Could it be that I love your work so much because ultimately you do your best work with OA and Sass and Cosmo papers and I am most attracted to them as well? Guess what, i finished my layout last night!!!! I'll be sending it to you tonight if I get a chance to get a picture taken!!!!

  5. What is this life thing getting in the way of creating!!!! It is so tough to carve out the time to do what we so enjoy....but oh how I adore that LO and the journaling is perfect!!!! I just love the Nook Kit....I received that kit for about a year and went on to some other ones....and now I think I am going to return to it!!!! I love all the goodies!!! Wishing you a day filled with smiles!!! :)

  6. great lo - great topic to scrap :D

    love that little owl :D

  7. Love your layout & I have a little girls who talks ALL the time too, lol!

  8. very very cute!! and a little funny too!

  9. I'm in the same boat!! I always get the itch to scrap during but it has to wait 'til later that evening, if I'm not too tired. I'm sure we'll adjust but now without a couple of scrappy withdrawals along the way. LOL!

    The lo you created is fabulous!!! I so love that line of OA, you totally rocked it!!

  10. The new nook kit looks YUMMY! Hope you have time to make lots of pages with it!!

  11. You amaze me with all you fit into a day & your talented too!

    Love your layout so sweet & such great colors.

  12. Little girls just seem to come without that off button! My DD talked constantly and now her DD does that same thing and I just smile! What an adorable layout, I so love those colors together.

  13. Yup I am with you on that, tonight I just could not get in the mood, Today was super busy and after the kids went to bed I just wanted to curl up with a cup of tea and watch a good chick flick. Love that layout, I do have a weak spot for OA, though.


Thank you for visiting my blog! Have a fabulous day!
