Pretty Paper Flowers…

My Mother’s Day layout is in the making…promise.

I’ve gone back to work full time and it’s been quite an adjustment. I’ve been up past midnight for at least two weeks straight now (maybe more, I can’t remember)…I am desperately trying to adjust to my new work schedule, it’s crazy enough to have side affects. One of them is staying up super-late just to finish laundry. Don’t feel too sorry for me, I have finished some scrapbooking projects in the wee hours too. Although, I must admit, these late nights & early mornings are starting to wear me down a little. I ache for proper sleep.

This morning when the alarm went off at 5:45 (I always give myself a 15 minute snooze so technically it was 6) I told my sweet husband that I was coming straight home after work and hitting the hay. Imagine that…waking up and planning sleep again. HA! Yeh, well…that didn’t quite happen. Here it is after 9pm and I’m just getting started on my 2nd wind (alright, maybe it’s my 6th or 7th wind). Random. Anyhoo…I’ve finally found a moment to start on my Mother’s Day class layout. I wanted to create some fun “vintage-looking” flowers from the paper I’ll be using. The photo above is what I came up with. There will definitely be quite a few of these flowers on my layout (mixed with lace and buttons and silk flowers of course). I will post a sneak peek of the project when it’s finished. OK…maybe I will hit the hay after all (but first I’ve got to throw the laundry in the dryer, feed the dog & cats, kiss the kids, throw the dishes in the dishwasher, bug my hubby about my website….you get the idea).
