"I'm Planning A Getaway"

{Phone call}
Dr. Hubby: "Hello beautiful. How is your day going?"
Scrappy: "I'm planning a getaway."
Dr. Hubby: "Well, would you please give me a heads up before you leave me."
Scrappy: "You have 5 to 10 minutes. Then I am gone."
Yesterday {after a weekend of cleaning and several remarks that clearly show I am being taken for granted} I decided to make a getaway. I decided not to do any housework. I took A DAY OFF! What did I do? Where did I go?
To the scrappy schoolhouse of course! It felt SO good to create. Here are the results of 4 hours of beautiful wonderful flowing CREATIVITY!

I used a Creative Memories "Power Pallette" that I bought a couple years ago. Can you believe I am so behind in my scrapping that I am actually on Easter 2007! LOL. I scrap chronologically and arrange my albums that way too. It works best for my brain. It felt good to use these papers and embellishments...they have been in my stash WAY too long. The first layout was made with the Animal Crackers Stack by DCWV.
So if you are feeling burnt out...taken for granted...stressed...take a day off! The housework will be there TOMORROW! Trust me.
I am cookin' something goooooood in my crockpot again today...smells like the holidays!

What a great day! I could totally use a getaway.

just call me jo said...

You are scrappy! Pages look great. I know that a lot of time is devoted to each page. Glad you could get away to do that. Good luck scrapping the next three years (from the Easter 2007) left.

Kudos to you for setting aside time to scrap and getting so much done! I have to do that to myself sometimes. I find it helps to give myself some freedom from scrapping in order. I just go with the flow. ;)

Those are darling.

However, I'm NOT going to have sympathy that you are so behind in your scrapping. Try 20 years worth!

You need to take a picture of your scrap schoolhouse. I would love to see that. And of course your scraproom.

I'm so glad you got to be creative! It's hard when you're not able to create--it makes it hard.
