Happy to be in a routine again!

Hello, there!
It is a cool September day, and there are pinto bean blondies in the oven.  They smell good, but the jury will decide this evening if they pass the taste test!  I sort of took the summer off from crafting.  I'm not sure why, but every now and again I stop crafting for a couple of months at a time...I have absolutely no desire to do anything.  And then, one day, boom---you can't keep me OUT of my room.  To that end, I have gotten a few comments about when I am going to post "after" pictures of my scrap space.  I'm just not 100% done yet, but I think now that the kids are gone during the day, I'll get to it a little more quickly.  Right now, I am working on one last piece that I need.  Here is a peek at my closet----the rest will come soon!

But anyway, the real reason I am posting is to show you a simple layout I finished this morning  It was based on a sketch from Creative Scrappers.

I used two instagram photos from my phone, and I love how they turned out.  This is Lucie and her little buddy Cole.  I think they spent most of the time they were together ZOOMING up and down the road on bikes and scooters.  The title is "fast friends".  I am going to be entering this at creative scrappers and also at Frosted Designs, where the challenge was to use your phone.

One more quick pic:
I love these little stickers from Cosmo Cricket---"We go together like Mac n Cheese".  True with these two.
Thanks for stopping by today!
