Mental block or just mental?

So I've been staring at the same page layout all week just trying to decide if I like what I have. I finally took out some pictures and tried to create this week. For some reason ALL of my pictures are outside - hiking, skiing, mountains! LOL! Dah, that's all I take pictures of anymore! I am really sick of green, blue and brown layouts! Don't get me wrong, I love those colors, but you can't scrap the "big hike" on PINK paper! Or can you? I'm testing the waters this time with maroon. I'm not quite sold. Maybe a few more days of staring at the page and I'll make my move!!!

But tonight I had to put it to the side and create a special card for a friend to give away. Tosha at work asked me to make a card for Cris' Mom who is battling with cancer. I told her that would be no problem as it is the least I could do for Cris and her Mom. Wow, I struggled all night to come up with a nice card. I am happy with the end result. It is the same design as the one above, but the colors were green, blue and peach. I used a big flower in the corner instead of the ladybug, and it turned out very calm and beautiful! I decided to give this card pictured here away to another co-worker who had a birthday this week. I hope she likes it since it is one of my favorites!

Dan is in CA this weekend on business. Melanie and I plan to get our nails done on Saturday, do a bit of shopping and watch movies! It should be a nice weekend for us! Too bad Dan has to work!

Just 3 more weeks until we leave for Cancun!!! I can't wait to be back on the beach, snorkeling with the fishes!!! And best of all, I get to swim with the dolphins! That's one of my 101 things to do Lisa!!! How lucky am I?

Ohmigod, Sue! I love that card! Of course, if it has pink and a ladybug, I'm pretty much sold.

I think you did an amazing job. Have a super weekend!
