Glued to the office chair...

I did 2 full days of intense office work and by last night my head was throbbing! I decided that that was enough and I needed a break so after resisting the urge to scrap while the office work needed doing, it was time to create today. I did a really quick layout using some inspiration I got from Gayle Smiths new digital layouts. You should check out her's really good! Love ya Gayle. I'm so pleased with this layout and it was so fast. I used My Minds Eye papers.

Also, here's the Explosion Box that I mentioned in my last post. I used the same patterned papers as Gayle's but different card stock. It's not quite finished - just needs a few finishing touches and journaling. Who better to do a Love theme about than my only little family?! I made this for Phoebe but I'm a bit concerned about how long it will last...she carries it around and loves it a little too much!

I received a Kit of the Month from Creating Keepsakes in the mail that I ordered because I saw it on Ali Edwards blog and it looked like good value for money. It was only $29.90 which is a bargain for the amount of stuff in the kit - only trouble is it cost $37 to get it here! OUCH! I have used a couple of pieces on a layout I'm currently working on...will show you when it's done. Here's a photo although its not very good.
