Finally, a new layout

I have been in such a creative slump mojo to be found at my house. I have ideas but no motivation to do anything LOL. I finally got around to making a new layout today! Bo Bunny sponsored One Single Seed and I got the pet shop line. Its a fun line, and I love the papers. Heres a layout I made today with it. This also goes along with one of the "spring training" challenges over at Simply Obsessed.

Im headed to the scrapbook expo this weekend. Im hoping to be inspired and find my creativity again.

Challege with an awesome prize at OSS!

Taken from the boards...originally posted by Tracy

Hey everyone... I just want to take a moment today and thank you all for joining the little dream I have here and thank you all for the wonderful people you are. What a great experience to have so many people to share in my life with. I am blessed..

Last month I gave my CT and Designers a special challenge. They were to create a layout that had the title of "I Matter" now, as some of you might know.. I do have a bit of a soft spot in me and sometimes can get kinda mushy.. so bare with me as I give this challenge and I hope to see that it gives you the joy it has already given to us that have done it.

As we created these layouts I had the girls post them in a private forum for the CT and what ended up happening.... we learned to grow and love one another and learn things about each other that was such a fun experience it made us closer. These layouts are now debuting in a slide show on our home page. Take a minute to see each of them and learn a bit about the amazing group I get to work with each and every day. They Matter !!!!

Your Challenge:
Create a layout this week during the Grand Opening. It needs to be about YOURSELF... and with the title of "I Matter" on the layout. I would like to create a slideshow of all the members here at OSS with your layouts on them. For everyone that participates there name will be put in a drawing. There will be a digi and a paper winner. Page must be completed and put into the gallery with a link back to this thread to qualify.If you are doing a digi layout... please use a kit from one of our designers here at OSS. If you are doing a paper layout... please use product available in our paper store. (no you don't have to purchase them here just be available here) (due to shipping time)

Simply Obsessed March Kit layouts

Heres what I did with this months kit from Simply Obsessed. I also used the Bazzill add on.
I thought with the spring feel of the paper that it was great for Easter layouts!

For this card I painted the butterfly brown so that it would stand out more. The ribbon is from my stash.

Thanks for looking!

So sweet...

Last night one of my primary kids brought me some cookies and a note. (There were more cookies than this, but my kids got to them immediately LOL.) I was touched that he even thought of me and he made my night. Isnt it amazing how a simple, nice act can totally make someone elses day?
