Sketch 79

Happy Monday scrappy people! Hope you all had a fabulous weekend.

I am enjoying the calm before the storm. Things are about to get busy soon. We're moving...yes, again! But I really think this is the last time because we're moving "back home"!! EEk! Yes, we're headed back to the scrapbook capital of Utah. Its where my DH and I met and where most of our families are. We have been trying to get back there for a while but in this economy you have to go where the work is, right? Actually both of us got jobs there. DH is there now working and my job doesn't start till October. A local bakery hired to me as a cake decorator! Yay! I haven't worked in over 6 yrs so I'm nervous but very excited.
Enough about me...onto this week's sketch:

Color Combo 156

I participated in last week's Color Combos Galore challenge again. I'm lovin it over there! This week there was an extra twist. We were challenged to make our LO based on a sketch in an hour or less.

Mine took me 40 minutes to be exact. And that includes getting up a few times to get my son a drink and such.

Muddy fun

Have a happy Thursday!!!!
