Bit of a Funk......

Good Tuesday everyone!

I hope you all had a good Father's Day weekend? It was pretty good here, we had some lovely weather so we went to the park for a bit. For Father's Day, my husband received a kiss card from my daughter she made at daycare, it's basically a laminated card with a real kiss from our girl that daddy can carry in his wallet wherever he goes. Awwwww :)

From one celebration to the next, as this is our inspirational picture 

Prize is 3 digis from 

I had the perfect paper for this I thought, but unfortunately I seemed to have used it already! So I had to come up with another solution and boy, was that hard this time around! It seems that my crafty mojo has done a runner and I'm left with sheer determination just to create something worthwhile. It happens to me every so often; I just can't seem to remember how to scrap anymore, it 'just won't go'! I always end up thinking that it will never come back and I might as well sell all my supplies and quit, but of course I never do and mojo always returns. However, I did cut myself a little bit of slack when creating this layout; I chose a picture I wanted to scrap and went for some less obvious elements of the picture to make it work. You gotta do what you gotta do, right? ;) 

I started with the big flowers; I found this paper I've had in my stash for years and years and decided to work around that. So my colour scheme is totally different, not a similar location or celebration, but the layout is about family (I married into this family, so that's another connection. Work with me people!) and was taken outside on a sunny day. Other than that, there is not connection I'm afraid, I promise I will do better next time! I am happy though that I managed to complete a page and work through that rut :)
