It's a New Day!!!!!

Wow......I can't believe it has been so long since I last did a blog post!!!!!!  The last 6 months of my life have been so incredibly hectic and full of twists and turns.  There are days when I just really want to crawl in a hole......and days of complete joy!!  Without my amazing kids in my life, my sweet loving beautiful 2 granddaughters and some pretty special friends, I think I would be crawling in that hole daily.  

My other issue of late has been that I had TOTALLY lost my creative mojo :(  I am lucky enough to be surrounded by tons of new and beautiful scrapbook supplies and the harder I tried to create......the less imagination I could find.  The photo that I finally used to created today has been sitting on my desk for about 5 months!!!!!!  I was truly beginning to think my scrapbooking days were over.....for good!!!!

But today I felt a teeny little spark......just a teeny one.  I grabbed the latest Scrapbook Steals sketch......and just did something without really thinking about it.  Definitely not a favourite layout.......but a start in the right direction.  Thank heavens for Scrapbook Steals and their weekly sketches.  If you are ever in a rut and need some inspiration they are the BEST place to go.

So this is this weeks MWM  Aquamarine #9

And this is my take on the sketch

After I was finished I was a little worried that I had strayed a bit from the sketch........but it is your inspiration that counts.  And if not for that beautiful sketch I would still be starring at that picture on my desk for another 6 months :)

Here are a few close up pictures.

Hope you enjoy and I hope you pop back in soon.  I am a little over run with supplies and I think in the next week or so,  it is time to have a few give-a-ways!!!  So check back soon for your chance to win!!!!!

Thanks for stopping in!!!!!
