... feeling under the weather

It really sucks being sick.  I can't sleep cause I feel like I can't breathe and when I finally get motivated to do something, I get sleepy.  Despite being sick, I did a bit of scrapbooking.  Of course, one of the layouts took me at least five hours not because it is so technically hard but because I kept getting distracted.

My first layout is from a conference I attended in 2006 called NACURH.  When I was cleaning out some old boxes, I came across a plastic bag for some store called National something.  The bag was covered in N's and I thought it would be fun to use that on a page. I am really trying to repurpose things these days... it gives me the chance to be inventive and saves me money for other supplies like rub-on letters (have I mentioned I am obsessed -OBESESSED!! with rub-on alphabets).  Here is my take on the sketch from Sketchy Thursdays. I had planned to also do a layout based on the CreateItGreen sketch but once I finished this one, I felt like my layout could fit to both of these different sketchs.  I plan to send it in for the Create It Green Design Team Call. 


I also worked on a layout with pictures from the day my best friend and I went dress shopping for her "Perfect" dress. The big poofy dress pictured at the top on the right side is the dress I picked out for her... she wouldn't even leave the dressing room, she hated it that much.  I kinda figured she would but as the maid of honor she told me I could pick out one dress and I wanted to pick something I knew she would never try on herself. If I have learned anything from watching Say Yes To The Dress is that sometimes the dress you least expect to like ends up being the one.  Of course for my bestie this was not the case.  When she had given up all hope, we went to a little boutique and found a dress that she liked.  Of course it was a size too small and it was the only one.  She tried it on just to see and it fit her perfectly... the moment she came out of that dressing room I could tell by the look on her face, it was the perfect dress. 

That's all for now.  Wish me healthy days to come!!
