Inspired (finally)

Hubby, my lovely hubby cleaned up the crib! Floors swept, bathroom clean, and clothes folded! This left me with only one thing to do - CRAFT my heart out. Only one problem - scrapper's block! There I sat, baby sleeping, house perfect, peace and quiet and I could not get inspired by anything! I had all that I needed including an awesome kit, and a good two hours. I spread out the papers, I admired the embellishments, and I just sat there. Suddenly, it occured to me that I have not scrapbooked with my favorite background music in a LOOONG time. I geared up the Music Player and doubled clicked - Barbra Streisand. My favorite song began, "What are you doing the rest of your life". As her marvelous voice penetrated my ears, I started pulling papers, tearing, cutting, pasting, inking, and distressing away. Before long, I had finished five layouts! Yes, FIVE! During my son's afternoon nap I completed an altered item and card. I think I could have finished the kit to the very last strip of paper - but decided to quit while I was ahead. Take a peek!
