Valentine’s Day is approaching…

Valentine 1

Just finished up this Valentine paper bag scrapbook.  I LOVE the Karen Foster Design stickers and the papers by Making Memories.   I also used some Tim Holtz papers.  I’ve had a couple pads of his paper for awhile now but this is the first time I’ve used them.  For some odd reason I’ve been rationing them…as if I couldn’t just go out an  buy more.  Do you ever do that?   Get some awesome supplies but then don’t use them because you don’t want to “use them up?”  I tend to do that a lot.  Crazy!   I also found these Jenni Bowlin Valentine mini bingo cards in my stash that I had almost forgotten about.  You can see more photos of this scrapbook in my Etsy shop

Valentine 4

I had planned to get a lot of scrapbooking done this weekend but somehow life kind of got in the way.  It has a tendency to do that lately.  Yesterday it was spending time with Ceara before she headed back to college today (read laundry!) and then today it was a trip to the ER with my mom.  Thankfully it JUST ended up being time consuming and nothing serious.  So it was an opportunity for some quality time (or should I say quantity time) with my sibs.

But, to be honest, those weren’t the only distractions this weekend.  I can’t seem to get my nose out of a book…bookS actually.   I’ve wanted to get the e-book, Flying Lessons by Kelly Rae Roberts, for a long time now and I finally couldn’t wait any longer.  I’ve left the e-book open on my laptop and it seems like every time I walk by I’m drawn to it and have to sit down and read a little more.   I’m not finished with it yet but considering what I’ve read so far…it’s definitely worth the investment (you can click on the icon to learn more).


My wonderful son bought me some other books from my I WANT THIS list for Christmas.  Two books by Patti Digh, Life is a Verb and Creative is a Verb and The Gifts of Imperfection by Brené Brown.  I, of course, couldn’t decide what to read first so I am reading all of them at once.  Whatever mood hits at the moment!

What distracted you this weekend?
