Motivation and Time

I have a layout today!! I finally got not only the time to scrap, but the motivation to actually get everything out and do a layout instead of take a nap! lol. I didn't realize how much I had missed it, that time for just me, to get all crafty and unwind! Really, really hope today wasn't just a fluke, and that I actually get to work on more layouts SOON! :)

Studio Calico is doing this awesome contest along with the Create blog, they are giving away a 6 month subscription, so when I saw that, it definitely helped to push me a little to try and get a layout, or maybe even 2 turned in, since I not only love their products, but would love to get their kits...and since the hubby is not on board with that quite yet, I had to give this a go.

Anyhoo, here is the layout that I am turning in for the contest. I used one of my favorite collections of theirs "Hey Day" on this layout, almost exclusively...there are a few other misc. embellies thrown in.

A quick back story on this layout, my middle daughter, Katlyn, is a lover of music. It doesn't matter what it is, she will sing and shake her booty to it. She changes her favorite songs fairly often, but this one here has been her favorite since she heard it from the first time....and something about it, even before she loved it, always reminded me of her....mainly the chorus, cause if you listen to the rest of it, it in no way speaks of a sweet little 4 year old. lol. I was lucky enough one day to snap this picture, and I immediately knew that that chorus was going to be the title. :)

 ( Just noticed my typo on there...still love the layout, lol, will just have to try and figure a way to cover/fix that...suggestions would be welcome! :))

I loved having this challenge, it really helped get that mojo going. So if any of you know of any other fun challenge blogs out there, leave me a link in the comments. I feel like I have been out of the loop for awhile and I'm not sure what's out there anymore! :)

Hope you all have a fabulous day! Take time to create something you love!

I love that song, and your layout. Since you are submitting it for a contest, I wonder if you realized there is a typo in your title (backroad) :( I love your style and this layout is super inspiring!

Well shoot, Julie! I hadn't noticed that! Not sure if/how I can fix it now. Definitely teach me to double and triple check my spelling! Lol.
