Boredom has set in ...

well and truly! Thank goodness I have a job, because I just don't think I'm cut out for sitting on my butt all day doing nothing. I have a thousand thoughts running through my mind at the moment and just don't have the energy to carry them through.

Today I pulled apart a layout I did about Seth for my EDM entry. It's been bugging me everytime I looked at it and finally my annoyance took over and I pulled it apart and tried to redo it. It never looked right and I just couldn't figure out how to finish it off. Instead of just adding that something perfect to it, I restarted it - it's completely different to the previous version. It used to be all lilac, pale blue and green SEI and now it's black with the new Sassafras Lass papers in reds and blues - loving it - much better than the original. I could say that I'm trying extra hard to make my pages perfect for this competition, but those who know me know that I once pulled apart a whole album (45 pages) and started again because I didn't like what I did when I first started scrapping. I actually pulled out that redone album recently and showed Seth (it's about his first few months of life) and even though my style has changed dramatically since then, I didn't hate it - I was proud of it - more interested in the photos and stories than the embellishments. As Andrew always says, no one is going to give a crap about the stickers, it's the stories and photos that matter - too true!

Side note - Emeline is growing so quickly and her language skills are really starting to develop. Yesterday morning she was in our bed when she said, "Uh oh, duck, quack, quack". Don't know where that came from, but I was so excited that she got the duck's sound right. Everyday she is changing in leaps and bounds. Sometimes I get very sad that she's not going to be a baby much longer, but there is no way we're going to have another baby - we just love the ones we've got!

And Cass ... love the mystery box - have plans for it all already! Thank you.

Lisa :-)

Are you scrapping at A2S on Friday night? I'm happy to pick you up if can't drive and/or you need a lift.
