Life and the weather :)

Ugghh...I have been enjoying the nice weather all week and we woke up this morning to snowing! It's not that I don't like the snow...I was just ready for Spring...ready to take walks and play outside. But that's Colorado for you.

So...ever feel like you are at a stand-still? Like the world is moving on and trying fun new things and you are just standing still? Maybe waiting for something to come to you? That's kind of how I have been feeling lately. And the thing is...I don't have to be...there are things (fun exciting things) for me to do, I just have to get off my butt and do them! :) I don't know...I kind of feel like I am blabbering a bit...that people read this and be like "what???? what is she talking about?" LOL...sorry.

Here's a layout I will share with you:

Isn't it fun? I encourage you to leave your negatives for chipboards or letters and use them too! If you have a few left (like I still had some letters and numbers on this that I hadn't used) just put those in a baggie. Waste not, right. This layout uses papers, die cuts and stickers from Jillibean Soup. Of course those cute flowers are from Prima.

Oh and on a completely different note...I watched the movie "Everybody's Fine" last night...and I thought it was so sad! I didn't expect that at all! Anybody else see it? What'd ya think?

Hope your Friday is amazing! :)

I love this layout, too. How clever to use the negative of the letters. It looks really cool! I'm sorry it snowed! UGH!

Great layout! I know what you mean about the way your feeling. I think part of it is this time of year the end of Winter but not quite Spring. In Montana it's the same thing... I'm so hungry for Spring, but winter keeps coming back. ;) Hang in there, sunshine is such a great motivator!

Very fun layout! I love your idea about using the negatives from diecuts-I wish I weren't so messy when I tear mine out! I usually rip part of the negative. Seeing your layout makes me want to be more careful!!!! :-)
