My Butterfly...

Happy Monday, Everyone! I hope that everyone has had a superb weekend. At the Wright household, it was busy, but I was still able to spend lots of time with family and also managed to do some late night scrapping. Also, gotta love the hubby - he gave me a few hours on Saturday evening to just sit down and scrap. Needless to say, I got crazy creative and have a lot of fun stuff to share with all of you.

For today, I'm sharing a fun layout that I put together using some fun My Mind's Eye goodies... Here's a closer look at the layout...
I am really into the color grey with my backgrounds... The funny thing is that I always used these types of colors in my digital layouts, but never really found my groove with it on the paper stuff. Finally, I figured it out! Can I get a WOO WOO?!?!?! :)
I just love the little details of putting together a layout... That's actually where I put most of my thought when I'm scrapping... The pictures are usually the easy part, then I mull over the details for what seems like forever!

I'm not sure about you guys, but the quickest I can put a layout together is in about an hour. I'm always envious when I see people post layouts and they make 5 or six layout in a sitting. I'm always happy if I can finish one and get another one started! How about you?

What is your typical turn around time for a layout?

Be sure to come by tomorrow - I will be sharing some fun pictures from a recent photo shoot! Have a great day!

Your layouts are always so fabulous, but I think what I really love the most is all the writing you do. That will really be a treasure one day as your daughter looks back on all your thoughts, written down. Love it.
