in my new space. I did a paper flower wreath this week for my sister, but other than unpacking my stuff, I haven't scrapped a thing since months before I moved. Now I can't wait for tomorrow morning, when I know I will have a chance to play! Maybe my slump is over...

Aww, nothing like a school picture to get those creative juices flowing. Have fun!

Ohhh, you make me a tad melancholy. Just last night I watched a fabulous Nichole M. scrapping video about her making a school layout of her son's kindergarten year - his pic, the way he wrote his name, plus a pocket folder for special keepsake projects he completed that year. It had me wishing I had done that for each of our daughters through the years.

I just got off a 45 min phone call from one of our daughters away in college who is worn out and still has lots of assignments to complete this wk. She just needed a Mom Pep talk....

Hug that sweet little girl - the years fly by so quickly!

I've had those long dry spells after moving, too. It can be a challenge to get creative in a new space. Hopefully you'll be able to look through some of your stash tomorrow and maybe you'll see some things you've forgotten about they'll inspire you. That always works for me.

What a sweet layout. I wish I had done things lie that, too. One thing I decided to do before it's too late is take my girls out for a photo shoot and interview them and get info on things that are going on in their lives right now. I have the pics and the interview questions and it's one of the next projects on my list.
