Struggling!

Totally struggling to get back into the swing of things this week... the 'routine' seems to have totally flown out the window over the last couple of weeks - and it doesn't want to fly back!!  :))
Never mind... the kids are dressed (in clean uniforms), and i have managed to finish two layouts today....
so all is not lost!!  I think it's because Troy only went back to work today (Wednesday),
so i still felt like i was on holiday too!  :).

I think i left my mojo down south too.  Getting these finished was something akin to pulling teeth.
I fiddled forever!!!  Well, i hope it was enough to blow the cobwebs out!

Anyway, the first layout..... well, you know the ones that sit around on your desk incomplete
for a little while, sitting patiently, ocassionally coughing politely just to let you know they are still there...
well he's one of those!  hehe.  Poor little fella.  He started off as a STB challenge that
i ran out of time to finish... the challenge deadline came and went... we went on holidays... etc etc.
All he was was a whitewashed bg, some punched circles scattered across the page and clock hands.
Please give him some love.... he's been neglected for so long..... hehehe.

Where has the Time Gone



The second one is TCR Palette .... 26 i think...  love this colour combo, so had to give it a go.
I think it also demonstrates the fact that there's no rule that says you have to scrap
a photo only once too ... if you have a favourite, then scrap it all you like!!! 

Here's the palette:

and my take: 

Stop It



thanks for visiting...
hope the second half of my week runs a little smoother
than the first!

Love both your LO's but especially love the circle elements and stitching in the first LO - it's super.

Love your themes here this week! I'm totally relating!! They look great :) (and it's so nice to know that other people leave their pages in an unfinished state for a while too)

Good to see you back. These are both gorgeous. Love the run of circles across the page. Love the paint splatters and stitching of course.
I am about to move house then go on hols. I hope I don't loose my mojo....

Cathy said...

Absolutely stunning... love them both. Those circles look fab and of course I'm loving paint at the moment. I wish my LO's looked like this when my mojo was down!! :)

so glad to have discovered your blog, julie. I can empathize with being overwhelmed by the kids, domestic chores, unfinished LOs lying around....
keep scrapping anyway.
hugs.
