Is there life out there...


Hello my sweet friends.
It has been a whole week since my last post
and there is no good excuse for why. 
I have been down right lazy and enjoying every
minute of it.  On Saturday I didn't even get out of my
jammies.  That is how lazy I have been. 


I did however finally make it into my craft room
to play in my Art Journal.  I did have a little inspiration
to help me.




I am hosting this week over at City Crafters Challenge Blog
And the challenge I came up with is to use Book Paper 
on your project.  Don't you just love the inspiration photo I
found on Pinterest.  I can waste away a day looking at all the
wonderful and inspiring photos they have. 




So I was going to make a card. Then I found another inspiring
photo and thought I would give it a try.  So I pulled out my Art Journal
and started playing with paint and book paper and more paint. 




It felt so good to be creating once again. 









To get all the details on this project you know what to do.



Thanks so much for stopping by. 
Hopefully I won't wait so long for my next post.

Till Then I do hope you have a Happy week

Hugs~

Your owl is the cutest Linda! And it's good to be "restful". I like to call it restful rather than lazy...it sounds less lazy. LOL. :) Hope you are having a great weekend!
