A MotherLOAD Layout!

I have been a bit disappointed in myself for not playing along with the actual LayOut A Day portion of the MotherLOAD class that I'm currently enrolled in. Life has been ... well, hectic this month, to say the least! School started up again, Paige had that 2 week painful graduated entry to get through, my Stampin' Up! business is hogging all my family scrapping time ... you see? Hectic.

But yesterday I made a commitment to myself to do something creative everyday. Whether that be a Stampin' Up! sample for a workshop or swap, or (hopefully) a scrapbook layout for our family albums, I just need to create! I miss it! I need it!!! So, last night at 10:00PM I headed into my craft room, put on the latest Mind Aware Teleseminar replay, pulled out my notebook with those lists of LOAD prompts, grabbed a snack bag and got busy. Within an hour I came up with this.


I tell ya', Lain Ehman is a genius! Those snack bags were such an awesome idea! It had the journalling tags, the felt flowers, the brads and the buttons in it which didn't seem like a lot at the time I made them up, but boy did they ever make my life easier last night!

Here's a close up of the title block.

And another close up of the journalling block. The letter stickers and this little birdie plus the word stickers are Bella Blvd (as is the patterned paper).

Now, I make no promises to start creating a layout a day following Lain's prompts (a month behind schedule?) but this was fun and I will definitely do it again soon!

  1. This is too cute, every time I see Paige's baby hair, I totally crack up! I love the flowers, the buttons with twine, and that cute birdie! Is the title die cut - looks awesome! Glad you had some time to create, it always feels good to finish a layout, doesn't it? Hugs, Roxy!
