Glee Challenge

I have a new layout to share today that I did for a challenge at The challenge was to do a layout using one or more of the following: 
* Use the photo as a sketch
* Use one of the song titles on a layout
* Talk about which Glee character you were in High School
* Use sheet music paper or music notes

I'll admit that I have never watched Glee...I watch enough TV as it is so I didn't need to add another show to my line-up. But, I did really love this sketch so I decided to make it my own. I used the Mill Street kit from for my supplies. I turned the sketch on its side and built a collage of pictures and patterned papers. The patterned papers are actually the Farm Fresh journaling cards by October Afternoon. I used the reverse sides and trimmed them down a bit to fit. I used the girls' 6 month pictures and journaled about their developments during that month. I hope to create a layout for each month but only have two done so far. 

It is snowing yet again in Iowa today. I think we are supposed to get 4-7 inches this time. Yuck! I'm really trying to be positive...I really am, but it's starting to get tough! :) I had a good weekend with my girls and my family plus a lot of scrap time. I haven't been able to sleep well lately. I don't know if it's because I keep waiting for someone to wake up or what the deal is. It seems that as soon as I turn off my lamp to go to sleep, I hear cries and have to get up. I've been tossing and turning a lot and wake up feeling like I have barely slept. Then I compensate my lack of sleep with caffeine and I think that hasn't been helping my situation one bit as I can't seem to go to sleep until at least 11:30. Anyway, I'm hoping for a productive Monday. I'm thinking about making heart sugar cookies later this week for a fun treat. 

Enjoy your day! :)
