A weekend not totally wasted

I don't know about you, but I am one of those people who starts thinking on Monday about all of the things I want to get done during the upcoming weekend. This weekend, I planned to clean my house from top to bottom. Um, yeah. That didn't happen. I just couldn't get motivated to do much of anything. I did the dishes and laundry, straightened up here and there, hung up the shadowbox I made a bit ago, changed the sheets on the bed, and that was pretty much it for household stuff. I was hoping to get all of the household stuff done so I could create. Well, I didn't have much mojo for creating, either. I managed to eek out one card and one layout. I'll show you the card later. The layout is one that I made for a challenge on scrapbook.com. Basically, you scraplift the person who signed up before you. I lifted a LO called "Love" by Amy (abk32276 on sb.com). You can find her layout HERE. Here's what I did with it.
The picture is a little crooked. Sorry about that. This is my friend's son Brent. Papers are all Bungle Jungle by Sassafras Lass, with the exception of the yellow cardstock and the leaf paper. The leaf paper is Creative Imaginations. They're a great company for shaped and themed papers. The little paws are buttons; I cut off the shanks.
I haven't been scrapping much this year and I'll admit it's been kind of hard to get back into it. Scraplift challenges are great for that, because it takes the guesswork out of designing the LO. I've joined two other challenges at scrapbook.com this month, too. Now I just hope I can pull something out for them, as well!

This is super cute, Gina. I love that Sass collection and the way you used it here. Darling boy too. It's always fun to find a little boy to scrap. I try to keep one handy but you are welcome to borrow him anytime!
