A Productive Day

Holy cow....I need a break!!
Today I:
Took Miss S to ballet
Stopped at three garage sales - my only purchase was volumes 1-3 and 7-8 of the Anne of Green Gables series. (I already have 4-6) I never even knew there was a volume 7 and 8!
Went to Big Lots with my buddy, Carla
Did 3 loads of laundry
Put away 5 loads of laundry that have sitting on my dresser for 2 weeks
Cleaned Miss S's room (she helped too) - we even changed the bed skirt and the sheets on her bed.
Quick lunch at McDonalds
Took Miss S to a Fantasy Fun party (through parks and rec)
Went to the breadstore
Went to Goodwill (found lots of cool goodies)
Made 6 zippered pouches
Halfway finished the binding on a doll quilt (it just needs the hand sewing)
Made a fabric covered notebook
Completed one 6 x 6 layout
Made my first art journal
Collapsed on my bed in utter would THINK! Instead, I am wide awake and ready for more!

The layout and the journal are for challenges at the SIStv website - if you are a scrapper at all you have GOT to check out this site! It is awesome and so inspiring.

Here's pics of my layout:
The "challenge" for this layout was to use only patterned paper - I used three different ones, used a heart for the punch and my own handwriting for the monograms. I'm sorry the picture is really dark - Miss S and Hubby are already asleep so I couldn't turn anymore lights one.

And my art journal:
The "challenge" for this was to use an inspirational quote and buttons. Any of you parents of Disney channel addicts will recognize the lyrics from a Hannah Montana song - totally cheesy I know, but I love these lyrics from "Make Some Noise". I used a tutorial that the challenge hostess posted and I love it. And for all you inquiring minds...rdd are my intials:)

Wow... very productive! I'm impressed. Hubby just left for Texas for work this morning. He'll be back Wed, and I have a list a mile long of projects to finish up. Unfortunately I still haven't finish reading the new Harry Potter book:-) Oh I will be busy.

Go rest now:-)

WOW! You did so much! Send me some jou-jou so I'll stop being so lazy :)

Love your layout with the patterned paper. I really enjoy finding patterns that work well together in my scrap pages. I haven't working on my book in a few weeks now, I think it's time to get back to it. :)
