Life… Gets In The Way… Sometimes.

And…… I haven’t figured out how to fix it yet!  LOL!  

It’s been one of those weeks.  The husband did NOT have a good week.  Long story short.  He’s been disabled since Feb of this year – back injury.  He just had his 3rd & final epidural and well, he’s worse.  Eh, enough of that.  Just wanted you to know why I haven’t had much time to participate in my class as well as post here.

I finally made my ink swatches!!!  But… I need a bigger ring.


So today was the last day of the KICKSTART class.  I really enjoyed it and I’m a bit sad that it’s over, however I learned a great deal and I’m looking forward to putting what I learned to use.  I’m also looking forward to the next class!  

One of the things I have taken away from the class is to challenge myself.  That being said I have decided to participate in some of the challenges available and to think outside the box.  At this point, I’m not sure what my style is.  I’ve been a scrapbooker… and even as a scrapbooker, I don’t have a style.  I’ll try pretty much anything (and oh does that sound BAD.. teehee).  So, we’ll just have to see where it all takes me.

I’ve decided to enter another Retro Sketches challenge.  Here is Sketch #31.


I’ve also added to the challenge a bit.  I challenged myself to use ONLY the scraps I currently had on my scrap table.


And this is my creation…

Have a great rest of the weekend!!!
