I Think I'm Back

Oh my goodness! How did so much time get away from me? I did have several things hit me all at once. School started back up which means I'm back to work and we did a garage sale on top of that. Son #1 moved out to college leaving an empty room. My office used to be in a room until we adopted two kids so I moved to our bedroom closet. So then it was time for the big shuffle. We moved kids to Son #1's room and office stuff back to where it goes all about the time I started back to work. My office still isn't quite organized, but I'm close and I hope to be in full swing stamping again very shortly.

In the meantime, here's a very simple layout I did for a party. The only stamp set I used was the July Word Puzzle. I created a background stamp by loading several words onto one block. Then after stamping the background in Cranberry I went back with Moonstruck and did the little star. The stripe paper is from the Blue Ribbon paper pack. Because this was for a party and I don't charge for the layout I had to keep the cost down. This is all paper with no bling. I would probably have added some dimensionals to the stars and maybe some ribbon, but I like it this way too. Be sure to click on the picture if you want to get a better look.

Anyway, there you have it. Hopefully I'll be posting more often, now that things are getting organized again.

I think somewhere along the line I received some blog awards that I need to pass on to others so I'll be working on that.

You are Close to My Heart,

My goodness, there has been a LOT going on in your life lately! I'm glad your back! ;)

Love the LO -- I don't think it's missing anything by not having the ribbon or bling. It's great just the way it is. tfs
