Getting mojo running..

I had the house all to myself today.  Got to sleep in and had loads of time to scrap, but I ended up staring at my papers, scaning through photos and not accomplishing anything.  So instead I I watched a Movie and relaxed.  I had lost my mojo for some reason.  I can't complain, I had a great run this week, I created alot of layouts.   I decided tonight to give it another try and success!  Thanks to a little inspiration from a Kristine Davidson sketch, I created this layout tonight
Victory paper, Evergreen cork shapes, Olive mini medleys, chocolate waxy flax
What do you do to get your mojo running again?

Sneak peek!

With the arrival of my sneak peak shipment last week, I've been scrapping almost every night and some afternoons while the kids are napping.  I'm on a roll!  LOL.  Here are some more layouts I did from the products coming out in the new Spring/Summer Idea book.  I love every single line!  6 down, only 2 more to play with!

Well we're already in mid January.  Gymnastics ans swim classes have started, we are finaly back in the routine of things.  I find that comforting in some ways, to know what is planned in the next few weeks.  I like our little routine.

The new CTMH Spring/summer idea book has arrived and it becomes live February 1st.  I got to play with some of the new products over the weekend.  Here's what I came up with.  hopefully I'll be able to play some more over the week.

Christmas withdrawls

First of all let me wish you all a great big Happy New year!  Hoping 2012 provides you with all you wish for! 

Let's start the new year by first looking back a little at 2011.  I've decided to share a few Christmas gifts I made.  I had help from each of the kids to make a desktop calendar as a Christmas gift for their parents.  They had fun playing with Jocelyne's "real" scrapbooking supplies, as apposed to my scraps and leftovers.  
The 2 last pictures are canvas art that I made for both my parents and my in-laws.
