My Happy Place

Happy Monday!! And no, Monday is not my happy place. I took a break from creating layouts for a couple of months because I was feeling really burned out. I made a few here and there but it was a huge change from creating a tons of layouts every month.  I feel like my layout mojo is coming back. When I sit down to scrap, I think about layouts and actually want to attempt one. This past week I did just that...actually created a layout.


I used to be 'caught up' with scrapbooking. That means that I had scrapped all my photos up to about 1 month ago. Well, I am now way behind on my scrapbooking. Like an entire year!! The horror! All kidding aside, that's fine with me. I'm not so obsessed with keeping up. I have just been grabbing photos that catch my eye. This is one of my favorite photos with some of my favorite girls. These are my scrapbooking buddies and I love them all dearly.

I used lots of Jillibean Soup on this layout. I went a little Jillibean Soup crazy. Have you see their wood buttons? They are super cute!


And I love to mix and match their alphabet fonts.


It was fun and relaxing to create a layout using a photo that I love and goodies that I love. I really think I will be sharing many more layouts in the future!

I hope you all had a wonderful weekend...thanks for stopping by!
