…it!  My mojo!  My scrappin’ mojo came back today!  Yay!  It was the first time in a long time that it wasn’t a struggle to create something.  I’m so glad.  I think the fact that Kaitlynn was playing at a friends, Tim was off and the boys were contentedly playing with him had a lot to do with it….quiet!

This was the first one…super simple but it got the juices flowing:

I love, love, love the photo of Powell so it was fun to do something with it.  I took it months ago at one of his cross country meets and was so struck by how “old” he is becoming.  Next I moved onto this one because as I was looking through photos I noticed a theme.

I could have done a mosaic with photos like these if I’d of looked any longer.  But I didn’t; I figured three was enough.  Finally, there was this last one (hey, three layouts in 2 hours was nothing to be unhappy about)….another photo I loved.  I was really excited about this layout until I stamped the title on there.  I did it two different ways and then finally realized I needed to call it done and see if it grew on me.  If not, I’ll fix it later (again).

So now I’m off to pick up Kaitlynn and then come home to a delicious meal my sweet husband made.  He wanted to give me a day off of cooking and had a new recipe he wanted to try.  He braised a beef roast and has been slow cooking it for the last four hours.  I can smell it and it smells sooooo good.  Right now he’s making a gigantic salad.  Oh, and he conned my mom into making garlic cheese grits to go with it all….yum!  Don’t you wish you could eat at my house tonight?

    Yay you!! That’s great your mojo is back. I love that pic of Powell. These look really good. I like the one with the title that you are having a hard time deciding on leaving or not. It looks good. Great job!

    Mmmm, dinner sounds like it was delish! I am glad to hear that you spent some time in your scrap room and that while you were there you found your mojo! AWESOME! Your pages turned out great and that is a lot to crank out in such a short period of time.
