I think after a week of vacation, I had forgotten how exhausted being at work makes me, lol. I literally came home each day and crashed on the couch with a book (often dozing off for a blissful mini-nap). I thought about making cards, but just couldn't drag up the energy. And I've been on book-binge as of late. Have I mentioned how much I love to read? I consider myself a certified book-aholic. There's nothing quite like curling up with a book and getting lost in my imagination. :)
I have also officially survived my first first-grade field trip! Phew! The kids actually all did really well, and it seems like they had a wonderful time. We went to see a musical production of Beauty and the Beast (not the Disney version, but the actually fairy tale). It was a little stressful getting back to our buses, but we all made it safe and sound. I absolutely crashed when I got home, though. I think I slept for about 2 hours on the couch, hehe.
Anyways, after some fun bridal shower shopping for my best friend this morning, I came home inspired to tackle last week's Fall to Layout. I adjusted the card sketch down to an A2 size since I don't have any special longer envelopes. I love the little leafy images popping up on the right side of the sketch and knew I wanted to use my Turning a New Leaf set for this card. I also receive my new Cards magazine yesterday, and my color combo was inspired by a card by none of than Dawn McVey. I loved her little jewels next to the leaves and just had to do that, too!
My roomie's out of town this weekend, so I've got the house to myself. It's soooo quiet! I miss having someone to talk to in those too-quiet moments. I'm looking forward to her return on Monday. But it is kind of fun to have the cable set to the Broadway station all day long. :) There's no one here to make me change it! heee
