Well I havent been feeling the best this weekend - I have been pretty good to get away from the dreaded flu that has been hitting most of my friends this winter - I managed to only have a head cold - which is not so bad - just a very sore head & lots of sneezing!  So I thank my lucky stars!

I managed to finish the Guest Designer Sketch - Lynn Shokoples - at Colorful Creations.  It was lovely to complete another page and get started on some great challenges that are in store at CC.
Here is the sketch:-

Here is my page:-

These photos are series of photos I took of Tommi the morning of his first day of preschool.  Since this is one of many I have decided to journal on the next page when I scrap the other photos.  He looked so cute in his little shirt & new bag!  I really enjoyed the sketch using my Simple Stories Awesome paper pack, some Dusty Attic cogs & dry embossed cardstock.

Well I planned to scrap a little more today but was feeling very ordinary *sad face but plan to get some more done during the week.

Trust you are all enjoying your weekend!

Happy Days!
