This layout was made using the amazing February kit from 2 Scrappy Chix Designs. Their kit had all this fabulous stuff in it but unfortunately it did not include one thing: my creativity.
I've just been having the hardest time doing anything creative lately. I feel like my talent went bye-bye, how frustrating! lol Anyway, I took a piece of patterned paper and tore it in half. Then I attached that to a different piece of patterned paper. I matted the photos in yet another patterned paper and attached those to the layout. I then thought of my title, got the alpha stickers that came with the kit and there you are! 10 minute layout! lol
My only consolation is that my creative mojo should return in some form as I received some cutesy poo Paper Blooms today and my kit from Gauche Alchemy should get here soon as well. So those have to make me good again, right? *crickets* RIGHT?!
Speaking of my lack of je ne sais quois, who wants to help me with my Friday Night Fab Five this week? I just thought of this idea and it's either going to be really cool or crash and burn...either way at least something exciting will happen, yes? So here's what I'm thinking:
I would love to have 5 different things from 5 different people to make up my Friday Night Fab Five this coming Friday. Do you have something you can't live without? Want to share with the rest of the class? Then e-mail it to me ASAP at katamommy at gmail dot com along with your blog address and any applicable links to said thing. The first 5 will make the list and if it's popular enough, I'll start doing this once a month!
Now let me clarify: I don't care what the "thing" is (as long as it's PG please!). It could be food, crafting products, clothes, books, movies, etc etc etc, get it? It could be something you have, inherited or just dream about having or experiencing. Anything at all that you think is fabulous and list worthy. If I get a lot of the same subject, I'll create more of a themed list, but otherwise it's anything goes! Sounds fun, right? *crickets* RIGHT?! lol
By the way, did y'all see Jocelyn's fabulous looking blog? The Amazing Traci from Sweet Cheeky Designs did it (and my blog makeover too)! And guess what?! She told me that anyone I send over to her gets $10 off their blog redesign so not to be an enabler or anything *innocent look* but if you've been on the fence about redoing your blog, tell Traci that Maggi sent you and grab that discount! lol
Let's close this randomized post with the opening to the movie "The Fleet's In". This 1942 film starring Dorothy Lamour, Bill Holden, Betty Hutton and Eddie Bracken was shown once on TCM years ago (that I know of) and I instantly fell in love with it. It hasn't been released on DVD (that I can find) and some nice person put the entire movie up on You Tube in 8 minute increments. Viva la Tube! Here's part one:
