Welcome to my biweekly post for the Critter Sketch Challenge Blog.  

Can you believe we are in the last week of February - almost TWO months into this new year - I just can't believe how fast the time goes.

This weekend I went to a weekend long crop.  A group of girls get together, rent a hall and scrap our hearts out.  I started at 1:00 on Friday afternoon, went home around 2:00 am.  Unfortunately I woke up with a migraine on Saturday so I missed most of the day - but managed to get back at it around 3:00 and stayed until 1:00 am..  I could have stayed later, but my sister who usually works night shift hadn't really slept and was literally falling asleep at her table, so we went home.  We were back at it by 9:00 Sunday morning and were there until just after 2 pm.  It was so nice to just crop without any distractions from the kids, dog, hubby etc.

I was super productive.  I brought the majority of my unfinished products - you know the pages that need a title or journalling, or in my case many needed photos.  I only started (and finished) one page, BUT I did FINISH 72 pages.  No that isn't a typo.. SEVENTY TWO pages... the worst part - I still have a very large stack of unfinished pages.  I don't consider a page done until it is ready to go in the album and I have a lot of pages that I have created that I just don't have pictures to go on them yet.  Do you do that?  Or am I a rarity?

This week we were given a sketch to follow, and here is what I came up with.

This was my only, start to finish page I did this weekend.  Super simple but it does the trick!

Products: Patterned paper and title block - Simple Stories - Happy Day, Green base was a piece of My Mind's Eye, Wild Asparagus - love it when I can pick up patterned paper on clearance and use the flip side for my bases.

I am currently having technical difficulties - I have been on the phone all evening with our Internet Service Provider.  Unfortunately it seems like we need some new equipment and because tomorrow is a holiday it will not happen until late Tuesday afternoon.

It is really hard to not have the internet - it really is amazing how much we rely on it - scary really!

I will get this updated just as soon as possible.

I have used an adorable image from StampFairy.  Please make sure you come back to look!

Thank you for your patience.
