Back to Reality!!

I am back from my scrapping weekend and it's tough getting back to reality! With the time change and the looong weekend, today was a rough day. Nobody said being a rock star was easy, ha ha ha!! I hope you all had a great weekend. I am SO behind on visiting blogs. I am hoping to catch up this week. I feel like i've been gone for longer than a weekend.

Here is one layout that I completed this weekend. I had the chance to play with some new Crate Paper. I bought some Pink Plum papers from Croppin' Paradise. And the colors are simply fabulous. So so so pretty, I really really love these papers. They are so much better in real life!!!


I cut that big flower from one of the papers and added some paint, Thickers and ribbon. Pretty simple but the colors just pop. I am seriously in love with this paper. Did I say how much I love this paper??? Hee hee!! My pages leaned toward the simple the weekend, Ithink was too easily distracted.

Hope you had a great weekend!! Thanks for stopping by, friends!
