Free Lunch-#51 the scrappiest

Today is SO pretty. The weather is absolutely perfect--it's like everyone else's summer. I have the windows open, canning some beans. You see I try to only can when the weather is cooler, then I'm not cooling down from the heat inside!
I finished this layout this morning--I'm really diggin' this take your time on a layout. It was an adjustment for me because I feel like I'm rushing all the time, it was taking from the fun of creating. The part that I had to accept was--it's okay if your page sits there for a day undone! And I really am! Anyway, enough sharing my self talk with you....
Here is the sketch I used (this happens to be #51):
This paper is bright--different than I'm used to using, but I LOVE it! Yes, I've had it for a while it's from GCD studios so are the stickers. The rubons & border sticker are crate paper.
I need to set out another layout, and plan what we are eating for dinner. We've got a busy schedule tonight with piano & soccer practice, AND we are going to the Junior high for a meet and greet! I can't believe my DD is going there next year--just plain CRAZY!
Thanks for stopping by and reading my rant! Hope you have a FANTASTIC day!

I love that stitching! That's the only way I get to scrap if I leave for the next day or two! Good luck! And remember to breathe...
