Computer Maintenance and a Layout's been a bit since I blogged. My computer has been having serious issues and using some of my programs has proven quite difficult lately. It's going in this week for repair and it should only take a day or two. If all goes well I should have it back by the end of the week. I'll have full access to my email and I have the kids computer here to work off of, so you'll be able to reach me as normal. :-)
I have been creating like crazy and have new layouts and cards to share, but they'll have to wait until everything is running smoothly again on my computer. I do have one to share... I did this for Jennifer's March 'Stretch Your Sketch' class at 2 Peas.

(Supplies Used: Cardstock - WorldWin; Patterned Paper - Jillibean Soup, October Afternoon; Adhesive Backed Cork - Quickutz; Letter Stickers - Basic Grey, Making Memories; Stcikers - October Aftenoon; Clear Butterflies - Heidi Swapp; Buttons - Papertrey Ink; Paper Clips and Tiny Staples - Tim Holtz; Border Punch - Fiskars)

I really wanted to make these photos look like polaroids since they were from my pre-digital days and needed to be cropped down. I thought creating polaroid type photos would make the them stand out better and become the focus of the page. I am eagerly awaiting the 'Say Cheese' stamp set from Lawn Fawn to restock but since I don't have it yet, I just created these on my own. Can't wait to have the stamp so I have the fun outline.
The cork under the photos is from Quickutz (now known as Lifestyle Crafts)...I used almost the whole piece to create a bullentin type background for the photos. I then stapled them and paperclipped them on.

And completely non-related to crafts...has anyone else seen the previews for the musical episode of Grey's Anatomy that is on this week?!?! I cannot wait to see it....looks like a pretty intense episode and the singing is going to give it a cool twist.

Have a great week!
Steph :-)
