It's been a while...

since I have posted here... since I last made a scrapbook page... since I have blog hopped... I'm taking a short break from work now and I mean really short - maybe two weeks at the most. I hope to spend more time with my daughter and get back to scrapping when she is busy or sleeping. I am so way behind with my DT duties. I miss creating too. Anyway, here is a page I created a few weeks back. Totally forgot about sharing it. The papers are a mix of old and new - from Autumn Leaves, Basic Grey, Pink Paislee, and Heidi Swapp. Rub-ons are by 7 Gypsies and the chipboard is from Scrapping Outback.
