YEAH!! After a 6 week hiatus from my studio, I created a layout today! I am ecstatic that at long lastI have had a chance to play in the space that I love best.

This is a direct lift from a magazine that I picked up (in Thorsby no less!) on my trip to town to pick up supplies for part 2 of the roofing project. I snuck a peek at Simple Scrapbooks "Scrapbook Shortcuts - Quizzes and Questions" and was immediately inspired by the very first page. I answered the questions Cathy Zielske posed on her LO and voila! The pictures were all taken in the last 6 months and the paper is from the July S! kit.

Just in case you are wondering, the journalling reads:

The last person I sent a card to: my S! friend Roslyn
What I ate for lunch today: meatloaf, mashed potatoes with creamed corn, coleslaw, chocolate zucchini cake
Something I just learned: how to make Nova Scotia hodge-podge, a summer vegetable soup (Mel and Tyler taught me last night!)
My favorite song this year: 525,600 Minutes from the broadway musical, Rent
The last book I read: True Believer by Nicholas Sparks
What I'm wearing right now: black track pants, grey Calmar WhiteHawks tshirt, flipflops
The last phone call I made: Hoffman's Home Hardware
Inside, I don't feel very different from when I was: 40 years old
The last restaurant I ate at was: Subway - a Tuscan chicken sub
My favorite TV show is: ER and any sporting event
The last shopping I did: at the Lakedell Farmer's Market, got fresh fruits and veggies last night
(I added the last question because I had a bit of room on the paper!)

Life is complete today!
