Rock a bye Baby

While I was blog-hopping this morning, I came across a cute sketch and thought I'd give it a try, since I'm so far behind in my scrapbooking these days!

I saw the sketch on this blog along with her too-cute layout. The sketch actually comes from here, by Q-diggity at Scrapbook.com.

This is a picture I've wanted to scrap for a while, knowing the poem I wanted to use with it. Since this sketch was perfect for using one photo, I decided to use this one. I'm not 100% happy with the way my lettering for my title came out, but it'll do. I made this in an 8x8 size.

The poem reads:
Cleaning and scrubbing
can wait 'til tomorrow
For babies grow up
we've learned to our sorrow.
So quiet down cobwebs
Dust go to sleep
I'm rocking my baby
and babies don't keep.

I used miscellaneous papers, the flower is Creative Elements (Wal-Mart) and the font for the poem is "A Little Pot" (Downloaded from internet.) My title was done by cutting letters from an old stencil I have.

It's Fall Y'all!

Finally! The weather yesterday and today has been fabulous! Quite nippy in the mornings, and nice and cool all day. I've had our windows open and enjoying the fresh air. It's actually been cool enough that the first part of these two days, I've been wearing a sweatshirt! I love it! It's really making me want to go camping!

Anyway, it's gotten me in the mood to make something with the fall theme. And now that I've "gotten my hands dirty" again, hopefully some creativity will come back to me!

First up, I made these candy corn jars just for fun. I'll end up giving them to someone, just not sure who yet. Super simple, and self explanatory I think. The stamp was from the $1 bin at Michaels, and I just inked part of it. The papers and ribbon were some I've had around for a while, but most likely came from M's as well.

And with some of the same paper, I made these cards. This is the first time I've done 3x3 cards, and I really like this size! They will perfectly accompany the jars above. Again - the stamps I used were in the $1 bin!

That's all for now. I hope to have some time this weekend to work on some more things - if I'm not outside all weekend enjoying the cooler weather!!

...to get my creative, um...'mojo' back! I'm not sure why. I didn't have any creativeness in me while I was sick, but was sure it would come rushing back once I was feeling better.

But is has not.

I posted a card last week - and it was a super quick and easy one. This was another super quick and easy one - nothing to get excited over for sure. But I don't have anything else to post at the moment.

I was really hoping that yesterday I would get something done. I wanted to, but it just never happened. So hopefully I'll come up with something today. I'm really behind on cards, and I need to get it in gear! Plus I really need to start working on Christmas gifts! Not to mention, my business has pretty much been put on hold. I was really making progress before I got sick - but those 4 weeks really took a lot out of me. Now, I really WANT to get back on track, but the want in my head hasn't transferred to my hands yet.

I don't like this struggling feeling, and hopefully it will pass quickly!

Anyway, here's the other super-quick card, and hopefully I'll have something better soon!
